Because of the unfortunate and untimely arrival of the Coronavirus, we have begun to learn about social distancing, physical isolation, and—quite possibly—the need to retreat to a safe and secure location.
By following these steps, one can significantly lower the chances of contracting the modern-day plague while also offering a quick and easy means for mitigating contaminants.
Caravans of New Yorkers are headed to the Hamptons, for the reasons above, simultaneously, we’ve noticed an uptick—or at the very least, an earlier than usual arrival of homeowners to the hidden summer enclaves of the SouthCoast.
The timing is interesting and gives rise to the question, are homeowners seeing the value of owning along the coastline because it offers unique protection from high-density areas? Perhaps.
This transition makes sense because if you live in a populated urban location, your risk factor quadruples. The majority of cities don’t allow for six feet of space around an individual, so heading to such a beautiful place to be able to live freely is not only desirable but a wise decision.
Having an exclusive compound to escape doesn’t have to be a response to a pandemic; it is useful and serves a multitude of purposes. Primarily, it is an ideal environment to relax and enjoy summers and holidays and the shoulder-seasons with family and friends. Plus, having easy access to Buzzards Bay and a long list of sailing destinations of the northeast, the harbor of Padanarama is the perfect home base.
This month we are pleased to review a stunningly beautiful home located within the confines of Birchfield Farm in South Dartmouth, Massachusetts.
A very private location, the home sits high above the flood-line and across from Ricketson’s Point and the harbor’s breakwater. The featured residence with its dramatic roof lines, blue-stone terrace, a three-season enclosed patio—with an outdoor fireplace—offers 5,424 square feet of elegant and luxurious living space. Thoughtfully placed on nearly two acres of rolling lawns, complemented by stone walls, it is a shining example of how other private properties are measured and evaluated for their value and pleasure.
Being relatively new, (constructed in 2005), but steeped in tradition, the home has four bedrooms, four full baths and two half-baths with exceptional features and appointments. An open-space great room combines a living room, dining room, and brilliantly designed kitchen, which offers a marvelous space for preparation or entertaining. The form and function of this central location are grand and inviting.
The home’s interior boasts extraordinary craftsmanship and attention to detail. From a mahogany domed ceiling located on the second floor in the observatory to the custom countertop with wet bar reminiscent of a yacht’s galley in the dining area, these unique details provide a personalized feeling to the environment.
Attention to detail is a vital feature in a home of this class. It is seen in the Brazilian mahogany flooring, two fieldstone fireplaces, a beautiful mahogany mantle, expansive coffered ceilings, a quiet study with custom built-in shelving, and cabinets, and the stunning light and views found in all locations.
The community is fabulous and allows one to be as private or social as desired. The intimate neighborhood is complimented with like quality homes and is laced with walkable roadways in and around the compound; the setting exudes freedom and peace.
The home is in like-new condition and is ready to be moved into by a family looking to begin a legacy. The tasteful interior would be a perfect palate for a wide range of tastes and is ready for new owners to display their collection of art and furnishings.
12 South Lane at Birchfield Farm is one of the most impressive and complimented homes on Padanaram Harbor and is always a welcoming sight to mariners who head to the yacht club or to pick up a mooring.
Offered at $2,975,000, listing agents Will Milbury and Jeanne McGlone would be pleased to schedule a tour of the property and provide additional information about this one-of-a-kind retreat regardless of the reason you’re searching for glorious and private living.
