Call 781-248-7373 - 25 miles southeast of Boston, in the bedroom community of Norwell, nestled in an established and desirable neighborhood, is a unique opportunity to purchase a special home that combines luxury and practicality, privacy and easy access, as well as pristine marsh and ever-changing river views.

Norwell is one of the most desirable towns in the south shore with a school system that consistently ranks among the top in the state. With a population of about 10,000, spread out over its 20 square miles, Norwell has the right mix of a small town community spirit and a meaningful commercial base providing services and supporting the tax base.

Tucked in the southern part of Norwell is a neighborhood that traces its roots to Norwells colonial shipbuilding heritage. The boulevards and streets in this master planned community along the North River feature names honoring the majestic sailing ships that were constructed there in the 17th and 18th centuries: Barque Hill Drive and Brigantine Circle.

The home at 82 Brigantine Circle, originally built in the early 70s, was completely redesigned, renovated and extensively expanded in 2000 by an award winning architect and skilled craftsmen into an expanded Cape style family home.

From the front yard, the home exhibits its understated, classic, traditional faade. From the rear however, the home takes every advantage of its 180 degree views of the North River with a full three stories of wall to wall windows looking across the broad marsh and river to the conservation land across the river in Pembroke. The peaceful setting not only appeals to people, but also to the myriad of wildlife that passes through the expansive lawn in the rear of the house. Deer, fox, turtles, turkey are regular visitors while red tail hawks and osprey soar overhead, and a multitude of songbirds fill the air and perch in specimen flowering trees in the yard. With the kaleidoscope of views, one will always want to have a camera and binoculars at hand.

Inside, the home beckons with its inviting layout and flowing floor plan. The foyer, with its dramatic barrel vaulted ceiling, welcomes guests with its
