Wolcott Woods

Where exquisite design, comfort & nature align

Nestled on 47 hillside acres neighboring the Blue Hills Reservation, Wolcott Woods is a new 55+ community from an award-winning team that will offer exquisite homes on one of Milton’s historic private estates. Wolcott Woods is comprised of 54 homes, offering detached and duplex style properties, and three original homes dating back to the 1800s that are being meticulously remodeled. The estate feel of the property is being maintained by using architectural elements found in the existing historic homes on the site and estate homes in the area.


“Transitioning from a little farmhouse in rural New Jersey to a 55+ community so close to Boston was a dramatic lifestyle change, but the Northland team helped to make our transition seamless. Beyond building beautiful, well-crafted, thoughtfully designed homes, Northland has gone a step further to develop whole communities.”

letter from the ceo

Remarkable properties and remarkable people...

Welcome to the Northland Community. Residential real estate development is our forte and I have spent the last 38 years dedicated to producing Northland’s premier neighborhoods.

In my current role as CEO, it’s the diverse spectrum of day-to-day affairs that appeals to me and drives me. I’m known for my “hands on” approach. One day could be spent soliciting capital from high-net-worth individuals to fund a new development, and then going out to a job site to weigh in on progress. A typical day will conclude with a planning board meeting to pitch our vision for our next project. Although demanding, I consider my personal involvement in the detail of our business to be critical to maintaining our positioning as a foremost developer of luxury residential real estate in Massachusetts.

And it certainly isn't all me; I am fortunate to have an exceptional team of colleagues and external consultants. Each of us is an expert in the space that we work in; together, we’re aligned in our goal to build remarkable neighborhoods.

I continually marvel at our extended team, the community we have built together here at Northland, and the communities we have built throughout New England. We care deeply about what we do, how we go about it, the relationships we establish, and the results we leave behind. We appreciate and respect the professionals, municipal leaders, and staff who dedicate themselves to our vision. We care about the well-being of the families who call our properties home, and lastly, we care about each other. Our aspiration is to be exceptional in who we are and what we do.

On behalf of our entire team, I thank you for your interest in our work, and I hope that these insights will resonate with you as you explore our site and the remarkable properties that beckoned to us.

With Warm Regards,

Jack Dawley,
President & CEO
Northland Residential
