Masterson Breaks Ground at Patton Ridge
HAMILTON, MA J. Masterson Construction is working with C.P. Berry Homes on a new 55-plus community located in Hamilton, Massachusetts, called Patton Ridge.
Twelve condominium homes, including 10 detached homes, are being constructed on this scenic, pastoral setting off Asbury Street in the area of Bradley Palmer State Park and Green Meadows Farm. The first floor of the homes will feature a master suite, a well-appointed kitchen, a dining room, a study, and a living room with a fireplace. On the second floor, a guest bedroom, full bath and a finished loft. A two-car attached garage, additional storage space and outdoor living area will also be included. The community is designed to have the feel of a traditional New England village and to complement the surrounding open-space lands.
C.P. Berry Homes' communities include English Commons at Topsfield, Massachusetts, Caldwell Farm in Newbury, Massachusetts, Fuller Pond Village in Middleton, Massachusetts, Ipswich Country Club Homes, Bartlett's Reach in Amesbury, Massachusetts, and others.
In December 2011, the town of Hamilton received a letter from Joanne Holbrook Patton in which she offered to graciously donate her home the Patton Homestead with 27 acres of land to the town. Joanne Patton operates the neighboring Green Meadows Farm. She is the wife of the late Major General George S. Patton (1923-2004), and the daughter-in-law of the late General George S. Patton Jr. (1885-1945), who, with his wife Beatrice, acquired the homestead property in 1928. At the Hamilton Town Meeting in May 2013, there was unanimous support by the town to accept the generous gift of the Homestead from Mrs. Patton.
In early 2014, the Hamilton Board of Selectmen chose C.P. Berry Homes of Hamilton as the developer for the property. At the 2014 Hamilton Annual Town Meeting, the proposed development plan received overwhelming support and passed well beyond the required two-thirds vote. In support of the sale were the Board of Selectmen, the Patton Advisory Committee, town residents, and most importantly, Joanne Holbrook Patton, who endorsed the sale by saying, "I want to assure the Hamilton townspeople that I can comfortably approve the next step as endorsed by the Selectmen, of selling that portion of gift land most appropriate for selected housing to a well-credentialed developer whose plans and pledge fully honor our gift agreement."
"We are honored to have the opportunity to work with the Patton family and the town," said Alan Berry, President of C.P. Berry Homes. "The property holds such historic significance that it will be our duty to make Mrs. Patton, her family and the residents of Hamilton, proud of the creation of a new community on the property that we look forward to achieving."
