Huckins Farm Homeowners Trust is a 164-unit residential condominium complex consisting of 110 freestanding residential structures, a clubhouse with an in-ground swimming pool, three tennis courts, an equestrian center with a barn, paddocks, a storage building, and an onsite office located at 49B Dudley Road in Bedford, MA.
A condominium is a form of property governance where the units (homes) are individually owned and managed under the umbrella of a Homeowners' Association (HOA), often with a property management company.
The inside of a condominium unit is the exclusive property of the owner as deeded, and the outside is owned in common with the other unit owners. Homeowners at Huckins Farm have a 1/164th ownership in the land and all common assets. A master insurance policy covers the common area assets, including the homes and permanently installed fixtures such as cabinets, floors, built-in appliances (under the all-in master insurance policy).
Maintenance such as landscape, plowing and shoveling, external building repairs, painting, and infrastructure maintenance are managed by our agent and not the homeowners. Seven homeowner volunteers are elected to the Board of Trustees and are responsible for the property management and budget.
Huckins Farm Homeowners Trust is comprised of 294 acres. Building coverage accounts for 3.5% of the entire property. Approximately 55 acres are used for yards and infrastructure, and the rest is used as recreational conservation land being forever non-buildable. The site has a rolling topography of wooded land with fenced pastures, paddocks, fields and meadows.
