What We Love

  • The setting: Set into 45 Acres of protected agricultural land so forever rural: pear blossoms and peepers in the spring, rustling of the wind in the autumn leaves. Quiet.
  • Room to play: the loft-style family room on the third floor, the pool, the long driveway for learning to ride a bike, the big barn for rainy day hide-and-seek
  • The location: minutes to the S. Acton express train to Boston, great schools, shops and farmer’s markets, but feels like Vermont.
  • The heavy lifting is done: extensive renovations retain the feel of an old house with modern amenities

The Taylor-Burroughs Farm evokes a pastoral New England landscape hard to imagine so close to Boston. The fully restored c1750 farmhouse is set at the end of a tree-lined drive, bounded by double stone walls and surrounded by 3.3 acres of open meadows and abutting conserved land. The 5 bed, 4.5 bath center chimney colonial retains period details of wide pine floors, millwork, fireplaces and exposed beams, yet is tastefully updated with an open kitchen, separate master suite, loft-style third floor family room and swimming pool. The attached four level barn provides ample room for activities and storage. Boxborough offers excellent schools, express commuter rail access in nearby South Acton, and easy access to shopping, restaurants and amenities.
