Cubby Hole Farm is a classic saltwater farm on North Haven in a beautiful setting with 29± acres, historic buildings and spectacular broad views. The landscape includes fields surrounded by forest with well-maintained gardens, idyllic outdoor spaces, rock walls, a charming farm pond, and approximately 2,439± feet of frontage on the tidal Cubby Hole. The main house, believed to be one of the oldest houses on North Haven, has been beautifully restored and improved and is in excellent condition. The property also includes a substantial, new post-and-beam barn, an in-ground lap pool, a separate guest house with private entrance, versatile outbuildings and a water’s edge boat house with a dock. 

The Cubby Hole Farm was originally built by Cushing Thomas, the youngest son from a family that moved from Marshfield, MA to North Haven, and established around 1795. The property has a rich agricultural history and it was actively farmed until the early 1960s. The Cubby Hole is a very protected, tidal cove that empties into the scenic Fox Islands Thorofare. There are excellent beachcombing opportunities and interesting wildlife activity as the tide ebbs; and there is good water for kayaking, swimming, or access for larger boats on the incoming tide. 

  • The main house is a classic center-chimney Cape with ell sited on a knoll overlooking fields and the Cubby Hole with charming historic details all in keeping with a traditional Cape but tastefully updated for modern comfort
  • The year-round residence has four bedrooms and three baths
  • The artfully restored kitchen combines historic elements with contemporary professional appliances and leads to a granite terrace with excellent views across fields to the Cubby Hole
  • Rumford fireplaces with brick hearths and original woodwork add character and the second floor of the Cape is open and bright with cathedral ceilings and exposed wood beams
  • The stunning post-and-beam barn was built in keeping with the historic property by Otis Carrol and Nate Clark (previously Les Fossel’s top restoration carpenters) of Pownalborough Restoration known for their work on eighteenth-century buildings for the Shaker Village at Sabbath Day Lake and for constructing new buildings as authentically as they were built in the eighteenth-century
  • The newer, year-round guest house, is privately located away from the main house with its own driveway and has three bedrooms and one bath with a kitchen, living room and dining area
  • Additional out-buildings include a three-car garage, a complete workshop and a water’s edge boathouse
  • The boathouse, accessed by private drive, is also in excellent condition and has space for storing small boats and a separate room for recreation
  • The property has a private in-ground lap pool, beautiful perennial gardens defined by rock walls and established, productive vegetable gardens
  • The property is divided by South Shore Road with about 11± acres on the south side of the road that include the water’s edge boathouse and dock with float. This waterfront portion of the property is subject to a Conservation Easement that allows low-impact public access via a pedestrian path from South Shore Road to the shores of Cubby Hole for recreation or launching a small watercraft.
