Lakeman’s Lane Farm, Ipswich, MA

Mr. Dorsey and another broker in his office were hired to sell this beautiful 5 acre horse property. Professional photographs, interior floor plans and a handsome web page procured a buyer for whom this property was a perfect fit.

Blackbrook Road, Hamilton, MA

Mr. Dorsey worked diligently to bring about this complicated purchase of a premier equestrian estate in Hamilton for his buyer clients. “End of the road privacy” for the farm was what his clients wanted. The property also included a luxurious 6 stall barn and sand arena. In addition to including most of the decorative house furnishings, it also involved redrawing lot lines which added an additional paddock and 7 acres. As of April 2018, this was the highest sale in Hamilton in the MLS for the last 24 months.


Horse Farm, Beverly Farms

Chipman Hill Farm – A prominent Massachusetts family had owned this farm for many decades, and decided to simplify their lives. Peter found the perfect buyer for this stunning and historic house (c.1680) from among his acquaintances who were looking for a beautiful home and a large tract of land. From the air, the house had resembled an “E” with three wings. However, one of the wings was later moved farther down the road to become itself, a very large and beautiful home.


Horse Farm, Danvers

Choate Farm, a magnificent 50 acre property, which had been in the same family for several generations, was sold by Mr. Dorsey and another broker at Coldwell Banker, a sizable transaction. Part of the property was sold by the family to the town of Danvers for conservation, the rest went to the private buyer. In addition to horses, the family had raised cattle and honey bees, and had developed a spring water enterprise. At one time, there was a rail spur leading directly from the farm to the old Boston & Maine line.
