The Hayward Homestead circa 1803 is an authentic New England Federal style Cape with classic Greek and Roman designs and 21st Century comfort and convenience. Located in the private 1,700 acre Seven Gates Farm north shore waterfront community with 1,100 acres of common land, 2+ miles of lovely private beach and only 45 homeowners, the Homestead was disassembled from its historic site in Bridgewater, MA and reassembled in 2002 - 2005 under the watchful eye of Ben Clark, the esteemed Martha's Vineyard builder of historic structures. In Bridgewater, it enjoyed special recognition by the Massachusetts Historic Commission. The Homestead was expanded significantly from its original size with similar period features and details. It abuts 360 acres of conservation land without a neighbor in view and enjoys a 60 ft salt water pool with a stunning Gazebo and stone pool house, an antique garage and a barn circa 1803 with stalls from the iconic Lexington, Kentucky horse breeding Calumet Farms. Character, charm, spacious rooms, high ceilings and perfect move-in condition create an entrancing bridge from centuries past to generations ahead.(SEE "DOCUMENTS" FOR THE HISTORY OF THE HAYWARD HOMESTEAD, BARN, GARAGE AND GAZEBO WITH FULL DETAILS AND PHOTOS OF THE PLANNING, SITING, DESIGN, QUALITY AND CONTRUCTION) 2% BUYER FEE to Seven Gates Farm in addition to other costs.
