Simply Nonquitt

The tony summer resort community is isolated and private; it has a fascinating history but remains enigmatic to those oblivious to its entrance, found off Smith Neck Road, in South Dartmouth, Massachusetts.

A fortified gate monitored by security is a gentle notice for anyone who wishes to peer into the lifestyle of celebrities, old money, power-brokers, and Ivy leaguers—Nonquitt is closed.  

A sensation of nostalgia welcomes the privileged who are allowed through its gates as they travel the small lanes and streets covered by canopies of shade laden trees and take in all this secretive ocean paradise reveals.

Families wander by foot or golf cart, the tennis courts busy, but never will the summer people be mistaken for the ritzy country-club types. It is evident they enjoy a “dressed-down” lifestyle and a carefree attitude.

Nonquitt is sophisticated, elegant, but unassuming. With a limited number of homes and fewer weeks to enjoy a summer vacation, those who travel long distances spend little time keeping up appearances and instead indulge in pleasure.

Speculation about who lives in the prestigious hamlet creates a divergence between truth and facts based on rumors and tales attributed to local banter. To tamp down the noise and allow the sacredness of peace and tranquility to prevail, there is an unwritten rule for all who visit Nonquitt; be respectful, discrete, and learn how to keep a secret.

To live in Noquitt is to experience absolute joy; it is summer living at its best, where being casual creates the atmosphere and 16 Mattarest Lane becomes an ideal setting for a new family.

A meticulously crafted, classically designed home and property; the drive along the beach to a secluded entrance opening up to an impressive gravel circular turn-around and parking area, 5-bay carriage house with a studio and private deck, is only a small sample of what awaits.

The 6000 square-foot home offers 5-bedrooms, 5.5 baths, and a dramatic fireplace in the living room. With soaring ceilings and French doors opening to a spacious covered deck overlooking a pickleball court, landscaped gardens, lush old-growth, and sturdy stone walls, a new owner will not have to step down when going on vacation—but instead, feel elevated.

This stunning home will allow you to entertain in style; with a massive kitchen and en-suite dining room, oversized island, and butler’s pantry, which leads to a family room, the layout is breathtakingly beautiful.

There is also a first-floor master, with an adjacent study.

The second level includes a grand master suite with a spiral staircase to an observatory, a guest bedroom, and a fantastic children’s bunk room. The lower level has a playroom, gym, and au pair quarters.

No detail was left out in the design and building of this home. Finishes and materials are of quality and, whenever possible, low or maintenance-free were utilized.

With tight inventory in this highly desirable location, delaying may not be an option.
