The 47 acres that make up Wolcott Woods, a new 55+ community in Milton, are the ultimate escape into the country. Neighboring the Blue Hills Reservation, Wolcott Woods offers the best of both worlds: a serene, natural setting and a convenient location.
To keep a sense of seclusion and connection to nature, 60% of the land at Wolcott Woods will remain open space. And while you may cherish a place to embrace nature, peace, and quiet, access to other adventures is also essential. From Wolcott Woods, head down to Cape Cod, take a quick 30-minute drive into Boston and Logan International Airport, or catch the train to New York and DC from the Route 128/University Park Station.
This Milton setting is one of Wolcott Woods’ greatest amenities, harkening back to 19th century summer home estate living, when families would head to this Boston suburb to get back into nature.
“I am so glad that you are at last settled at dear old Blue Hill, it does me good to think of you as there, and the vision of cool breezes, fresh green Trees, and Orchards in full bloom.”
Lieutenant Huntington F. Wolcott – May 7, 1865, Union Army – 2nd Massachusetts Cavalry

For generations, the Wolcott family decamped from Boston to the beauty and seclusion of this estate. Among the family members who enjoyed the home they called Blue Hill was former Massachusetts governor, Roger Wolcott. Wolcott Woods will continue the property’s legacy as a haven from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.
