About the Property

Private setting. 4BR/4BA, Sleeps 8.

This charming one story shingle style waterfront home overlooking scenic Padanaram Harbor with views across Buzzards Bay towards the Elizabeth Islands and Cape Cod is situated in a community established in the 1950's called Birchfield Farms. The house sits on 1.5 acres of landscaped lawn which is perfect for many outdoor activities. Upon entering through the front door one is met by an entire wall of windows in the living area offering scenic vistas of the harbor and bay.
On a warm summer evening the best place to sit is on the outdoor patio to view the harbor and the many boats coming and going. The setting and rising sun creates stunning imagery you will remember forever. If so inspired you can set up badminton or a croquet court to enjoy the view and get some exercise, too! You can enjoy a cookout with a Weber gas grill, a table that seats 6 comfortably along with a number of additional patio chairs.
For dining inside, the dining room table seats 8 and and there is a small card table and additional folding chairs as well.
In the morning, wake up in the sun filled Master Bedroom suite, with a king size bed, to the same lovely harbor view. It is truly a wonderful way to start your day. There are two other bedrooms in the main part of the house, one with twin beds and one with a queen, that look out over a field. The fourth bedroom is an in-law suite complete with full bath, twin beds and a view of the water as well. There is a private outdoor h/c shower off the patio and full size washer and dryer in one of the bathrooms.
Along with public beaches available by car, the Association's private beach is accessible after a short walk down the lawn to the waters edge. Walk along the water a bit and the beach is adjacent to a jetty. A small sitting platform is also available for views of the water and family picnics. At the end of the jetty there is private dock for small boats to pick up and drop off boaters and a swim platform for easy access to the water for swimmers of all ages. A favorite activity is bringing a good book and a comfortable beach chair to enjoy the peace and quiet of a relaxing day at the beach. At the end of your beach day what could be better than a warm fresh water rinse in the outdoor shower and a favorite beverage while watching the boats return from their voyages out in the Bay.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1957

About the owner: The property was purchased in 1957 by my father and the original dwelling was built in 1959. The in-law suite was added in the 60's, the master bedroom and an additional guest room in 1970. Recently the house has been lovingly brought up to date and is truly a wonderful place to relax and spend time with family and friends.

Why the Owner Chose South Dartmouth, Dartmouth, MA, USA:
The setting of this property is unique to the Southeastern MA coast line because it overlooks a harbor and not just the Bay. There is a wonderful sense of privacy while reading, relaxing or simply looking out over the water from the patio. With a large lawn area there is also plenty of space for children to run around and play.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Unlike other communities in the area, Birchfield is very private and quiet with plenty of space between neighbors. The view of the water is unimpeded and expansive, offering new perspectives each and every day.
