A Glimpse into LandVest’s North Shore Horse Country
A classic New England countryside of open meadows, woodlands, wide-open grass gallops, saltwater farms and gracious old estates define Myopia Hunt Country of Boston’s North Shore. This rural character belies the area’s easy access into Boston and sophisticated cultural amenities. A longstanding tradition of stewardship and conservation has preserved the landscape. It also provides a vibrant culture and breadth of recreational opportunities beyond those related to horses. There are trails, rivers to explore, golf, and of course, easy access to the ocean and miles of gorgeous sandy beaches (for great gallops in the off season!).
Hamilton-Wenham was listed as one of the “Best Places to Live” by Boston magazine in 2010. We couldn’t agree more. Lanse Robb, Principal and Regional Director for Boston’s North Shore, notes that “We see two principal buyers of horse properties – families moving out of town to enjoy the rural quiet, and horse owners moving up to accommodate their horses with more room and better amenities”.
In addition, the surrounding communities provide great food and fun. We love the Peabody Essex Museum in Salem and the stunning backdrop of the Atlantic at the Shalin Liu Performance Center in Rockport. Whether you are looking to sample the latest epicurean trends (like Brine Oyster in Newburyport) or a simple lobster roll at a clam shack in Essex (JT Farnhams is our favorite), find them at one of North Shore’s great restaurants. Wenham is lucky to have the fresh delicacies at the local Tendercrop Farm.
