About the Area
This early suburban neighborhood of substantial middle class homes -- the first of its kind in Weston -- is set on a hill in the geographical center of the town, just north of the abandoned railroad tracks of the former Central Massachusetts Railroad.
The neighborhood is characterized by a winding street pattern and naturalistic landscaping, with many mature trees and shrubs. The steeply sloping topography influences the siting of most houses within the neighborhood and adds visual interest. Where houses could not be built because of steep slopes, the hillsides are left in a natural, wooded state. In addition to the topographical irregularity and informal landscape style, the physical setting of the neighborhood is characterized by many ledge outcroppings and large glacial boulders scattered randomly. A few houses have stone walls along the street and some are enclosed by low fences.
