With new home prices rising throughout all regions of New England, finding a special place for your dream home has become more of a challenge today than almost at any time in the past. Discrete homebuyers are looking for better planned communities that offer more open space and are focused on security, amenities and eco-friendly environments to live and raise families. Ask buyers today what is important in mid to upscale home building options, and they will quickly tell you that master planned communities with a host of amenities are at the top of their list.
Along the south coastal regions of Massachusetts in communities like Plymouth, Marion and Mattapoisett new home building home-sites for new construction are selling at all time highs and price points for 2500 to 3000 sq. new homes are now pushing well into the 600’s. One thing has become apparent with this trend, communities like the Bay Club in Mattapoisett are seeing an increase in activity that is being fueled by homebuyers demanding more. The cost gap that separates planned living communities from standardized developments is growing smaller as consumers look for more than just a home site for their families.
For many, whether you play golf or not, communities like the Bay Club offer home building amenities that add up for today’s discriminating buyers. Lovely views of well-manicured greens and fairways in a park like setting create the perfect backdrop for your new home. The Bay Club is one of only two Silver Sanctuary golf communities certified by Audubon International in the state, and one-third of the community’s 625 acres are dedicated open space. The community is well planned, functional and beautifully landscaped for living and family life.

In addition to championship golf, the Bay Club offers resort style amenities in a private country club setting complimented by an active social calendar geared to bring together members of all ages. Yachting, boating and fishing on Buzzards Bay are located nearby, as is ferry service to Martha’s Vineyard and the Elizabeth Islands.
The Bay Club is home to an 18-hole Championship course designed by PGA Tour Professional Brad Faxon and partner Brad Booth.
