It’s not uncommon to feast your eyes on a house that was once quite another thing, like a train that has been converted into living space in Jacksonville, Florida, or an estate that was once a grain mill in West Bend, Wisconsin.
But a property on the real estate market in Dartmouth, Massachusetts for $ 2.49 million could be news on the books.
This four bedroom, 4.5 bath “iconic luxury estate” was once the Gulf Hill Dairy farm, a business founded in 1896 by a man named Joseph T. Fernandes.
“From the start of a man, horse and cart, Gulf Hill Dairy has grown into one of New England’s most modern and successful dairy operations,” explains DartmouthRotary.com. The dairy would continue to introduce both homogenized milk and multivitamin milk to this area of Bay State.
While the dairy was sold in 1980, the now converted house stands in its wake.
An open concept runs through most of the 7,891 square foot home and features upscale features that give it an added touch of personality, features that include, according to the listing on Realtor.com:
There is also a beautiful apartment to accommodate outside guests and a terrace with access to the roof.
Dartmouth is approximately 59 miles south of Boston.
