Our home is located on 5.5 acres of woodlands surrounded by hundreds of acres of protected forest, yet only minutes away from Mattapoisett Harbor and the beaches on Buzzards Bay.
You wake up every morning to the songs of the various birds that make their home here. Sit in the solarium off the kitchen and watch the birds fly up to the feeders as you relax with a good book!
At any time you may see the wild turkeys cruise through the yard on their daily search for bugs.
If it gets too hot on the decks you can move to the screen porch off of the back patio where you will feel a light breeze and enjoy another beautiful view of the forest. In the evening you can relax in front of the fire pit located where the lawn meets the back woods. You will find an ample supply of dry wood ready to go.
You can pick fresh organic vegetables from our expansive garden for your daily meals. Add them to something you cook up on our Weber Grille located on the patio by the screen porch.
After your meal you can take a walk down to Branch Brook or a little further to the Mattapoisett River only a short distance away.
You can ride bikes into Mattapoisett Village on back roads and hardly pass any cars on your way to the village where many whaleboats were built and launched in the early 1800s.
Our house is post and beam with many antiques and it has woodland views from every window.
The house has open construction on the first floor so the living room, kitchen and solarium all flow together. There is one bedroom and full bath on the first floor and two bedrooms and full bath with separate tub and shower on the second floor. The washer and dryer are in the basement which is finished and has comfortable seating, a Foosball table as well as a unique giant chess and checker table with large chess and checker pieces.
The west side of the house has two decks. The lower deck is connected to a brick walkway that leads to the patios and screen porch. The front of the house faces the woods, forming a privacy barrier from the road.
Our house is suitable for up to six people who are interested in the solitude of the woods but also enjoy saltwater activities. A beach pass for all of Mattapoisett Beaches and the town wharf is available for you!
