Located in the desirable Hillside neighborhood — a super short commute from Boston, a short drive to the Cape, and an ideal location for Milton Academy — this inviting California-style midcentury-modern home, “the Cabot House,” was custom designed by the Sullivan Design group for Edmund Cabot and his family. The house has expanded and updated since. The current owners added a huge garage and great room above, designed by Brad Walker of Ruhl Walker architects. The flexible open floor plan offers a suite of formal and informal living areas, with vaulted and beamed ceilings, stone fireplaces, lofts, and a chef’s kitchen with a separate pantry. The living area is as warm as a Tuscan villa or French country home. The relationship between the indoors and out is almost seamless, with huge walls of glass doors that open to a wide stone patio, overlooking a large level back lawn. The house is set far back off the road down a pebble drive, with a wide and deep professionally landscaped yard that features lovely plantings. The home has been impeccably maintained.
Nestled in the foothills, amidst over 6,000 acres of legendary conservation land in the Blue Hills Reservation, this rare find is perfect for folks who love outdoor activities, from simply walking a dog down the country lanes, to any level of recreation at Blue Hills, which features trails, ponds, golf, camping, kayaking, rock climbing, swimming, cross-country and Alpine skiing, and more!
