The Pinehills, Massachusetts – A Development Project in Nature

The Pinehills is recognized as a census-designated place in the city of Plymouth, Massachusetts. With over 2,000 homes, The Pinehills has a lot of space for residents, but it's the surrounding natural environment that is the draw for all who move here.

Overall, The Pinehills encompasses 3,060 acres of land between Plymouth and Cape Cod, but only 900 acres can be used for housing. That means that recreational activities, including golf, hiking, and boating, are abundant, as forests and open spaces surround the community.

Living in The Pinehills, MA puts residents in a unique situation where they have all the modern conveniences they'd expect from a newer development while remaining at one with nature and the beauty that the community offers.

The neighborhoods of The Pinehills

Despite its relatively small size, The Pinehills is home to over 40 neighborhoods, each of which features a different style of home. For example, Poet's Corner, Five Lanterns, and Climbers Path offer houses designed by the MacKenzie Brothers, while Briarwood and Vista Point offer Toll Brothers' designs.

There's also Walking Stick and Hickorywood, which are full of cottages, Symington Woods and Hatherly Rise, which are all townhomes and condos, and Seton Highlands, which is a 55+ community.

If you'd like a little more individuality, Ship's Lookout, Ryecroft, Dawn's Light, Talcott Pines have custom homes and features views of the woods or surrounding ponds.

Overall, The Pinehills has designs to meet nearly everyone's needs, as it's one of the more diverse development projects on the East Coast.

The Pinehills, MA's history

The history of The Pinehills dates back to 1891 when thread manufacturer Robert Symington took control of a 3,060-acre piece of land south of Plymouth. The property stayed in the Symington family, mostly as a private hunting area, until 1968, when investor John Talcott purchased it.

Talcott planned to develop the land but eventually sold it off to Digital Equipment Corporation in 1986. This company planned to build an office campus at this location but hadn't done so by 1999 when four new developers, Tony Green, Steve Fischman, Steve Karp, and Tom Wallace, bought the plot.

By 2001, construction was underway in The Pinehills, with the community expanding every year since.

One issue with development is that the area has poor soil, thanks to the glaciers that receded millions of years ago. This soil makes it a difficult place to build. The developers eventually created a plan whereby 900 acres of the land would be used for housing, with the other 2,200 acres being left open for recreation.

This plan creates a lot of open space for residents, in addition to parks, golf courses, and other outdoor opportunities.
