In 2003, OceanView’s owner, John Wasileski, purchased the historic Whipple Farm property, also know as the “old Joshua Merrill homestead,” and a site plan was developed consisting of 42 homes. Construction began in the summer of 2005 with the first residents customizing their homes and moving in during 2006. The picturesque view of the original, pre-Revolutionary War saltbox has been preserved with the dedication of 5 acres of conservation land; this 1756 farmhouse houses our Whipple Farm Distinctive Dining and is used as an event and activity space for residents and the local community. Falmouth Historical Society utilizes the upstairs rooms as office space and maintains a genealogical library there. A beautiful, 4-season heated pool complements the Whipple Farm neighborhood, along with a community room, woodworking shop and locker rooms for the enjoyment of all OceanView residents.
Spacious, customized homes adorn this historic hillside property, creating a unique neighborhood of terraced rock walls, gorgeous gardens and varied floorplans. Each home is nestled at different levels on the hill, enhanced by its own unique landscape plan. Four basic floor plans have been modified and expanded to include such options as sunrooms, lofts, basements, gas fireplaces and screened in porches. The exterior architecture maintains the character of the colonial era, including dormers, decorative center chimneys, and cedar clapboards and shingles in period colors.

Sample Floor Plans
At Whipple Farm, each home is unique. As the homes were built, we worked with our residents to customize their home to fit their personal style and preferences, and as such, our resale homes carry that charm and originality. No two homes are alike!
