The eminent and desirable South Coast of Massachusetts, with its pristine ocean, scenic outlooks—positioned along the coastline, and its rolling fields spreading across the countryside, remains the most enchanting locality for a person, couple, or family in search of a unique home. And whether it will serve as a primary residence or a luxurious summer retreat, it’s a place worth discovering.
This captivating home has just arrived on the market and is listed by Milbury & Company Real Estate of South Dartmouth.
Located on the Farm Coast, it is in one of the most desirable areas to live and is one that traverses the old boundaries of South Dartmouth and Westport, Massachusetts.
With an abundance of activities drawing both full-time and part-time residents to the region, the option of enjoying two seaside villages within easy reach makes it an ideal location to call home.
Our featured home was built in 2004, yet it remains timeless. It’s stunningly crisp white clapboard exterior and geometric architectural design reflects a façade reminiscent of classic Shaker lineage.
Positioned near working agriculture, open fields, (which host equestrian and fox hunting events), and strikingly beautiful beaches, (both public and private), 600 Horseneck Road a property which could not be replicated even with the best intentions.
The estate rests between nearly 15 pastoral acres of meadows and a custom-designed grove of specimen plantings, Chinese Ginkgo trees, and swaying— low maintenance—Fescue grass.
The house is set back from the road and is accessible by a small-stone gravel drive. As you approach, you’ll notice planked boardwalks extending from the guest parking area to the entrances offering a natural and rustic pathway.
Surrounding the 5,600 square foot contemporary home is a sense of calm, comfort and even intrigue—it feels so inviting.
The home is apportioned into four distinct components which allow each section to offer amenities that are unmatched by comparable properties. As you tour the inside, it becomes evident that while there is ample space for living and entertaining, each room is predicated on form and function and space is never wasted.
The fine amenities of this home are too numerous to list; however, those with grand expectations and a need for a sophisticated interior footprint will likely be impressed with the convenient flow and access between floors and rooms.
There is conspicuous attention to detail in the home’s design and an undeniable expectation for easy living which appears to have been a priority when the current owners built this dream estate.
The soft palette of whites and grays, concrete floors, unpainted walls—soft to the touch—and cathedral-style ceilings evoke a sense of living in a gallery; this experience allows for pure enjoyment of one’s art, artifacts, collectibles, and treasures.
The sizable kitchen has everything necessary to prepare the most splendid gourmet meals, and with French doors that swing open to expose the adjacent field for added ambiance, it’s easy to see that little can be done to improve this one-of-a-kind home.
The breathtaking banquet-sized dining room is every host’s dream, while the wall of glass doors in the spacious dual living rooms allows the outside to join with the home’s interior space and provide natural illumination up to the second-level open balcony.
This unbelievable property will soon be the prize for someone who thinks outside the box and requires a living space that can become part of that concept.
This picture-perfect home at 600 Horseneck Road is offered to a discriminating buyer for $2,450,000.
