A Patrick Ahearn-Restored 19th Century Shingle-Style Country Estate Dazzles in Milton

A country manor of majestic proportions, flawless elegance and manicured privacy, this historic shingle-style estate has been restored to perfection. Once part of the Eustis family estate, the property has undergone a meticulous three-year renovation under the discerning eye of renowned architect Patrick Ahearn.

In its stately setting of approximately 8.48 acres of pastoral beauty surrounded by conservation land, the residence is positioned to enjoy expansive vistas of the property itself as well as the verdant oasis of the Blue Hills Reservation.

The gorgeously updated interiors provide all of the comforts and luxuries of a 21st-century lifestyle in the picturesque framework of 1890s design. High ceilings, lustrous hardwood floors, generous windows and French doors, six fireplaces, an elevator and handsome moulding and wainscoting all set the stage for gracious living and impressive entertaining.

On the main floor, formal living and dining rooms are complemented by a spacious family room, office, library, sunroom and state-of-the-art kitchen. Downstairs, there is a

luxurious home theater and a fitness room with a full bath and sauna, while the upper floor is home to six bedrooms, several with view balconies and en-suite bathrooms, including the spectacular primary suite – a private retreat that opens to a beautiful sunroom overlooking the Blue Hills. Also on this level is a guest suite with a kitchenette and a sitting room. Additional main-house features include a catering kitchen and a laundry room on every level.

The grounds, with ample room for grand-scale entertaining, include an octagonal garden folly built by Amish woodworkers as well as a gambrel-roofed carriage house. With a two-car garage, an immense potting room and a bathroom on the lower floor, the upstairs is home to a two-bedroom, one-bath guest house with a large living area and a full kitchen.

Conveniently close to Boston, Logan Airport, Milton Centre and Milton Academy, this distinguished estate is an architectural legacy updated for today’s lifestyle.
