New 55-plus community to bring new homes to Milton

by Liz Hughes

Boston area residents looking to leave the city for the suburbs will have a new option as Northland Residential kicks off development of a new 55-plus community in Milton.

Once complete, Wolcott Woods will bring 54 new construction homes on more than 47 acres that were once the summer estate of former Massachusetts Governor Roger Wolcott. The development backs up to the Blue Hills Reservation.

Northland Residential President and CEO John Dawley called the project a “timely response to the growing demand for high end, ‘active adult,’ maintenance-free living in the Boston suburbs.”

Each home is designed by architect Union Studio. The restoration of historic structures on the property, including the 1890 Wolcott Mansion, is also planned. Each residence will feature modern amenities and layouts, while also honoring the property’s heritage by using unique materials and design elements, according to a company release. 

“Whereas Milton is a well-regarded address south of Boston, and the Canton Avenue site is truly outstanding, we expect that Wolcott Woods will likely draw interest from a broad geographic pool of prospective buyers,” Dawley said in the release. “Our recent success with newly built townhomes at Woodmere at Brush Hill, Duxbury Woods and The Residences at Black Rock has proven that there is a wide swath of buyers willing to relocate for this type of housing.”

Phase one of the project has already sold out, and units in phase two are now selling at prices starting at $1.35 million.
