Three years ago, Woodmere at Brush Hill was just an idea on paper. Today, the townhomes at Woodmere at Brush Hill are nearly sold out and construction is approaching the finish line. Homeowners have embraced the location for its tranquil suburban setting and nearby access to the conveniences of Boston. On the heels of a successful sell-out on Brush Hill Road, we are pleased to announce that permitting is underway for our next townhome development in Milton, Massachusetts.
Wolcott Woods, a new 55+ townhome community on the magnificent Carberry/Wolcott estate will be located a few miles South of Woodmere along upper Canton Avenue in Milton. Bordered by Blue Hills Reservation on two sides and an existing residential neighborhood, this private parcel once belonged to Roger Wolcott, who was a Massachusetts governor at the end of the 19th century. Northland Residential acquired the property from the Carberry Family in 2016.
Our vision for this new development calls for a mix of 54 free standing and attached townhomes set amongst the open fields and mature landscaping gracing the estate. Designed by James Velecco of Grazado Velecco Architects, each home will feature open floor plans with up to three- bedrooms, 2.5 baths, and attached garages. Gracious front porches and private outdoor space will further distinguish each home. Additionally, three historic homes on the property—the Devens House, The Manor House, and the Wolcott House—will be retained and restored into unique residences. Northland’s goal is to carefully incorporate the new townhomes into the fabric of the existing landscape and historic buildings.
The proposed development will also retain 60% of the 47-acre property as open space and will include walking paths, and a trail connection to the neighboring DCR Blue Hills conservation land.
We continue to work closely with the town of Milton to finalize the details. Stay tuned for more updates about Wolcott Woods in the coming months. In the meantime, with only one home remaining at Woodmere, we invite you to take a tour.
