What’s your idea of the perfect winter getaway? If it’s a New England estate with rolling hills of snow and a crackling fire inside, then Westwoods may be the right property for you to purchase. Located less than an hour outside of Boston, in Westwood, Massachusetts, this elegant retreat sits upon 74 acres of land and includes a 10,600-square-foot, shingle-style main house.
Aside from this primary residence, several ancillary structures and open air spaces, including a stone fire pit, gazebo, mediation well, stone terraces and a koi pond overlooking a meditation labyrinth. Currently being used as a non-profit retreat, Westwoods is adjacent to nearly 300 acres of conservation land and has private walking trails next to the town’s trail network.
Situated just a short distance from the main home is a 620-square-foot office that comes complete with a full bathroom and porch, as well as a 1,600-square-foot gambrel-roofed art studio. Additionally, there’s a two-story, 700-square-foot, open gathering space on the property that has 17-foot high ceilings.
Other structures at Westwoods include a 1,900 square-foot, two-bedroom caretaker’s house, which has been updated with new electrical, plumbing and appliances, and two barns that are just across the field from the main house.
