                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 1991

                  About the owner: I built this house myself so it's a little different, lots of wood everywhere. Lots of windows with views and lots of light.

                  Why the Owner Chose Dartmouth:
                  I grew up in this area so my whole life is by the ocean, when you see it here you will know why I'm still in the area, especially in the summer and fall. We are close to family restaurants and grocery shopping, about ten minutes away. It is really quiet here except for the sound of lawn mowers; no buses, sirens, beeping horns...

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  One of the most comforting things about the property is that the ocean is always there... in the summer you have your windows open in the night and you hear the lap of the waves on the beach; unbelievable. I also have veggie gardens everywhere and a small greenhouse that keeps me eating chemical-free food. You can go to the beach anytime in the daylight hours for free. It is quiet there most of the time, beautiful sand and clean water. The beach is divided by a spit of land and if you choose to go to the second part it is even more secluded. The Eastern Shore area is really beautiful, Acadian in nature, lots of nice spots to discover.
