Located in Mashpee, Southport is recognized as one of the top Active Adult 55+ communities not only on Cape Cod but throughout Massachusetts, thanks to the lifestyle it provides.
Southport is a gated village with guards at its entrance off Old Barnstable Road. The community provides a plethora of activities for its residents and enjoys a convenient position near Mashpee Commons. Those who buy a home in Southport are never bored because the planners and developers thought of pretty much everything and community volunteers have brought those ideas to fruition.
Living in Southport puts you in the heart of a vibrant, active community that is full of people within your age group. If you're looking to retire on Cape Cod, Southport should be one of your first choices.
The neighborhoods of Southport
Although Southport is technically only one neighborhood, there are a few different sections to be aware of when choosing where to buy.
The south end of the development is where the entrances are located, and is also the site of Southport Village Center. The Village Center is where much of the activity takes place, as there's a large community building with all kinds of things going on daily. Some of the homes in this area also back onto Martha Pond, which provides birdwatching opportunities.
The northwest section of the community is where you'll find the Southport Golf Clubhouse. Most holes on the golf course are in this area, so if you're buying a home in Southport for the golf, consider this portion.
Southport's northeast section also has a couple of golf holes and is also a short distance from Quashnet Golf Course. Quashnet features longer holes in comparison to the par-three Southport Golf Course, making it a good option if you want to switch it up a little.
Things to do in Southport
You'll never run out of activities in Southport, thanks to its two designated recreational areas.
Perhaps the main reason to buy a home in Southport is the golf, which is played on a 1,614-yard, par 28 course that runs through the northern part of the village. This nine-hole course is suitable for beginners and more experienced players, thanks to its natural challenges, including heavy tree cover. The course was designed by Phil Wogan, who has won awards all over the country, and is entirely private, so members pretty much have the run of the place. If you are interested in Racquet soprts, Southport has vibrant Tennis and Pickleball programs.
Even if you aren't into golf, you'll find plenty to do at Southport at the Village Center. It all starts with the indoor area, which features a library, fitness center, woodworking shop, card room, sewing room, computer room, yoga area, and sports lounge. There is also an indoor pool for residents to enjoy.
There's a second heated pool outside the Village Center, in addition to a BBQ area, three bocce courts, two shuffleboard courts, walking trails, and a horseshoe pit. There are bocce and shuffleboard leagues at Southport, as well, if you're looking for something competitive.
In addition to the main activities, Southport has an exciting social program featuring live music, movies, catered dinners, charity events, and more. Or, if you're looking to get away for a bit, the community association organizes trips to Boston and New York for concerts, shopping, baseball games, and theater performances, too.
Buying a house in Southport
When the time comes to retire, or at least downsize in preparation for retirement, it's unlikely that you'll do much better than Southport.
