Owner info

Year Purchased: 1934

About the owner: Now in the third generation; our 'Salters' home has been and remains near and dear to us. It has been a gathering place for our large expanding family. Grandchildren, nieces and nephews flock each summer to get their fill of cousins, aunts, uncles and extended family. Some renters have dubbed this special place 'the happy house'; we hope you feel the same. Because this is a summer community, we ask that no weddings, rehearsal dinners, large reunions or the like be held here at our house.

Why the Owner Chose South Dartmouth, Dartmouth, MA, USA:
Gated Community: Family friendly and a paradise for children
