Old Farm Residence

Dover, MA

This 20-acre estate is bordered by woods and contains a barn, enclosure for animals, a small orchard, and pond in addition to the main house and pool area. The expansive back lawn feels more like a serene meadow, and the home is planned to take advantage of the picturesque views. Both the patio and porch feature 180-degree views of the beautiful lawn and surrounding wildlife, where some days you can spot the owner’s two beautiful Herford heifers grazing. The back of the main house opens onto a stone patio containing an outdoor dining area, lounge seating, and water feature surrounded by a garden with stone detailing. A path wraps around the side of the house to a covered open porch with a stone fireplace, outdoor kitchen, casual dining area, and cozy seating adjacent to the pool and pool house. Both spaces are convenient to the interior kitchen, Breakfast room, and Family room, making it easy for the family to utilize the outdoor spaces for everyday living and not just when entertaining.
