About Ben Fairn
This is us.
Ben Fairn purchased this House in 2017
Why Ben Fairn chose Somerset Village
I love historic houses on Big properties, and this one, origionally built and completed in 1789 with 2.5 acres, is one of those. Its fully modernized, new appliances, air con etc, premium memory foam beds etc. We bought it not just to rent, but to live in the off season, if there ever is one.
What makes this House unique
Location is superb, close to stores, and across the street from the beach. Lots of flowers and some new fruit trees, another one of my new hobbies. If your a rose affictionado, read up on the finding of the famous Belfield Rose in 1953 right here on the property. It was found by Mr. Richard Thomson, Chairman of the Old Rose Committee of the American Rose Society . Its positive identification by Richard was completed in 1956, The R. chinensis semperflorens or “Slater’s Crimson China”, better know to Bermudians and now around the world as the “Belfield” rose. http://rosesinbermuda.com/?page_id=31
