What We Love

  • Rural seclusion in the suburbs
  • The ability to have a small farm and plenty of space to play
  • The surprisingly cool mid-mod vibe within a shingle style home
  • The light and views over the meadow
  • The separate artist’s studio with attached flexible space

Set at the end of a long private driveway, high on an east-facing knoll overlooking a meadow and small pond, Myrtle Hill retains its rural sense of place. The five-acre property is largely open, with a forested edge providing privacy. The main house, built c. 1900 by noted architect Frank Cooper for his own residence, is a classic shingle style with 4 bedrooms, playroom, study and four baths in its 2,825sf. A new owner will relish the tranquility, great light, and unusual spaces of the house. Renovated by the owners in the middle of the last century, with ongoing updates over the years, the interior vibe is hip and mid-mod. While the house is entirely livable as is, a new owner would likely renovate the kitchen, baths and some systems (conceptual plans and budgets are available). Children and the young at heart will appreciate the sledding hill, artist’s studio and space for play and animals. A remarkable spot within easy reach of Boston with Wayland’s excellent schools and open space.
