Dear Buyer,

Oh boy, if these walls could talk! We have had so much fun living here, raising our children, entertaining friends and family (even hosted a wedding here!). Honestly, just enjoying the everyday peaceful serenity the house and pond has to offer. The dual personality is certainly the best attribute of the home & property. When looking at the beach, the sweeping lawns, the fire pit, the covered porch, the open floor plan of the main level and the finished lower level space some will see a property designed for amazing entertaining. Others though, will see the secluded lawns, the fire pit, the covered porch, the beach, the dock hidden by reeds and the upper level of the waterfront building as quiet places to escape, far away from the stresses of the world.

So many neat spots, there are days it is difficult to decide where to have our morning coffee – the beach, the dock, upstairs at the boathouse, the front porch or the back porch (which is a GREAT choice on rainy days).

While you can’t go wrong in the master bath with a nice Jacuzzi bath or a nice long shower with the multiple shower heads, you won’t be disappointed in the kitchen doing the dishes either. While at the sink, you will experience the most beautiful sunsets and best placement of a heat vent …. ever!!

Our children have learned how to swim, kayak, paddle board, and fish in the backyard. They have learned how to respect the water, bait their own hooks and release the TONS of fish they have caught – sunfish, perch and lots of bass! In the winter, they loved to sled down the hill in the backyard and we snowshoed through the nearby walking trails. The years Mother Nature has cooperated and frozen the pond over, we have ice fished and had many days of good ‘ole outdoor New England skating.

This area of Plymouth was once a Boy Scout camp called Camp Child. This house sits on the land where the mess hall once stood and the waterfront once had a huge dock where the scouts would have swimming lessons and hone their boating skills. We have heard many stories of those that spent their summer staying in the waterfront building, having no idea how good they had it. There are walking trails everywhere and some remnants of camping life as they knew it. There is a lot of cool history here!

We have gotten to enjoy being spectators of wildlife here – from the deer in the woods along the driveway, to the many birds we see daily around the pond. We have a flock of turkeys that frequent us almost daily, a great Blue Heron that lives on the pond (very cool to watch), frequent visits from two large swans, as well as birds that visit for a short time on their migratory route.

We will forever cherish the memories of joy this property has provided. Whether it be on the beach with toes in the sand, watching the kids play in the water, sitting around the fire telling stories, watching a game in the lower level, listening to the birds and soaking in the views from the upper deck, enjoying a meal with family & friends on the covered porch or the incredible feeling of peace we’d get from simply standing in front of a window, looking outside & taking it all in.

Though there is so much more to say, so many more examples of what this property means to us and the experiences our family has shared because of it. It is your time now; we sincerely hope you experience as much joy & peacefulness as we have!

Yours Truly,

Proud Owners of 445 Ship Pond Rd
