Brookside is a young townhome community with 241 homes. The developer, Northland, began the community in 2003. The Homeowner’s Association has retained the Dartmouth Group to professionally manage the property. The financials are strong, the people are nice, and the place looks great!
Located 1.5 miles from the foot of the Cape Cod side of the Bourne Bridge, the location of Brookside is easy and convenient, whether your destination is the Cape, Boston, Providence, or beyond. In addition, there are beautiful beaches, historic neighborhoods, inspiring shopping, and robust cultural opportunities – not to mention biking, walking, or running along the canal. Or just watching the sun set. Brookside is on the west shore of Buzzards Bay heading from the bridge toward Falmouth, and the views and sunsets are truly exquisite.
The community is built around the Brookside Golf Course, which is public and has an enthusiastic clientele. The course is long and scenic, and fees are reasonable. In addition, the Sunset Grille at The Brookside Club has spectacular long views over the golf course to Buzzards Bay (and the setting sun), and a mouth-watering menu. It’s also a sought-after place for weddings and other events. If you’re not in the mood for a full meal, just belly up to the bar or mosey on out to the veranda. The sun sets every day!
Pets are welcome at Brookside, and walking the dog is a great way to get to know the neighbors, including the pooches and pups. When I lived there, I was the only non-dog owner in my group of four homes, and I can attest to the great sound insulation between units. I heard nothing, not even a yip, from inside any neighboring home.
