It’s the perfect perch to take in a mulligan and to watch a hacker shank a shot. Sporting two decks in the back, this town house is one of 36 residences that curve around several holes at the Norton Country Club. In this case, it’s the 12th hole, a par 3 guarded by a water hazard.

Just inside the front door is a surprisingly spacious galley-style kitchen that includes a small sitting area warmed by the light of an entry window. Off-white cabinets overlook an L-shaped granite counter, stainless-steel appliances, a gas stove, and a separate prep workstation.

In the adjacent open floor space, there is an eating area warmed by the glow of a white chandelier suggestive of tree branches and a living room with a gas fireplace framed by white marble. A door leads to the deck and the view that makes this house stand out: a grass buffer some 50 feet wide before the 12th hole (of 18) begins.

The distinctive master suite, on the second floor, takes advantage of the same view. It also offers a spacious sleeping area, an unexpectedly high (20 feet) ceiling cooled by a fan, natural light from a large rectangular window, and a balcony that’s a perfect fit for Juliet, Romeo, and a table for their drinks. The master bath features a whirlpool tub, as well as a separate shower and soapstone vanity.

The third floor is one large carpeted room with two screened skylights but no closets. The flooring in the home is a mix of oak and carpeting. The basement provides a second family room with dropped ceilings, bead-board walls, and a separate workspace. There is a one-car attached garage, and the homeowners’ association fee is $209 per month.

Listing broker John Hagberg of Realty Executives in Taunton is holding an open house Sunday from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.
