Shopping, dining, playing, working & living.
All in one beautiful place.

Over a decade and more than 1,700 families ago, The Pinehills was born. Now this well-established village is one of the nation’s most celebrated examples of thoughtful community planning and design.

Underlying it all is a commitment to quality and environmental stewardship that acknowledges what a gift it is to live in concert with nature. By holding true to the village’s original vision – a robust sense of community, active open space and intimate neighborhoods – The Pinehills just keeps getting better.

Neighborhoods and amenities are gracefully hidden among towering trees. But, as we say, there’s a lot going on behind these pines:

smart planning

Sustainable design ensures lasting value—environmentally, of course, but also culturally and economically. The Pinehills was designed to enrich lives for generations, and it all began with this simple, radical idea: for every acre developed, two acres would be set aside as natural or recreational open space.

preserve what’s important

  • Homes are grouped together in small, organic neighborhoods that conserve open space, trees and wildlife habitat while enhancing residents’ views and personal privacy.
  • Homes are carefully sited to harmonize with their woodland, pond and golf course settings. Often a combination of these.
  • Roads follow, rather than alter, the natural contours of the valleys and hills—a practice that also nicely calms traffic.
  • Old Sandwich Road, now more than 350 years old, has been preserved, as well as the colonial-era Wright’s Tavern (now Rye Tavern) and its adjacent rye field.

inspire healthy living

  • Residents reduce their carbon footprint (and waistlines) by walking and biking on trails.
  • Walkable destinations such as the shops, café, bank, post office and events of The Village Green boost the local economy and build a connected community.
  • The rest of the body gets a workout too, with golfing, kayaking on ponds, swimming, playing tennis or pumping iron at the Stonebridge Club.

protect our resources

  • Smart water management and conservation returns as much water to the aquifer as it takes out.
  • State-of-the-art energy practices contributed to The Pinehills being selected as the site of the HGTV 2010 Green Home.
  • Eco-conscious, energy-efficient designs have contributed to over 90 prestigious awards including the Award for Innovation from the Massachusetts Environmental Business Council.

find your home

the village green

If a village can be said to have a heart, this is it: the traditional social and commercial center where all paths converge. This is the place to go to have your hair done, mail a package, find a unique gift, meet a friend for coffee, do your grocery shopping, have your car serviced and pick up a nice malbec for dinner. And on occasion throughout the year, it’s the place to join your neighbors in celebration of music, art and the joys of the season.

Yes, there are abundant historic sites (including a certain rock), edifying museums, exciting whale watches and everything else that your visiting relatives could want. But Plymouth also has become an increasingly popular regional destination for its hip shopping, fine dining and other modern day wonders. Think of it as a pretty amazing addition to the active Pinehills lifestyle.

Past and present

It’s remarkable to live in a place where the past is still such a vivid part of the present. At The Pinehills, your very modern, ultra-convenient life is enriched by deep connections to millennia of unspoiled natural beauty and evolving North American culture. Think of it as New England’s premier new-old neighborhood.


Kettles and kames

It would be a bit of an understatement to say that The Pinehills didn’t spring up overnight. In fact, it was about 25,000 years ago that the last great glacial ice sheet in this part of the world carved out the valleys (“kettles”) and knobby hills (“kames”) that we enjoy today as the rugged landscape of The Pinehills. The tall trees appeared many centuries later.


Plant and wildlife diversity

Walk into the forest that now gives this place its name, and you’ll be greeted by a rich diversity of plant and animal life. This natural beauty is what inspired us to preserve as much as possible: Less than half of our more than 3,000 acres will ever be developed.


Old Sandwich Road

For thousands of years, this land was the living and hunting ground of several Native American tribes. Old Sandwich Road, the oldest unpaved road in continuous use in the nation, was originally a native trail through the forest.


Sacrifice Rock

In fact, one monument to the area’s first residents remains to this day. On the east side of Old Sandwich Road lies a boulder with a small marker stating that it is an “Asseinah Manittoo” or “Sacrifice Rock.” A sacred place — not for living sacrifices but for small offerings to ensure a safe journey. And to this day, you will still see offerings on top of the rock — pine boughs, pine cones, small pebbles — left by travelers.


The Rye Tavern

After the settlers arrived on the Mayflower, a new chapter of history began. Until very recently the land of The Pinehills remained unused and unsettled except for the old Cornish Tavern, rebuilt in 1792 after a fire, and a few cranberry bogs and summer estates owned by land barons. Today the Cornish Tavern lives on as the Rye Tavern, where residents settle into the historic atmosphere to enjoy cuisine crafted from produce as local as the tavern’s own garden.
