The lush property
This winter, trade the windy streets of Boston for a bucolic estate blanketed in snow. Situated on the south side of Weston, Juniper Farm is a 3.54-acre oasis just off the reservoir. The stunning grounds are adorned with stone walls, a three-bed carriage house, a barn and a colonial main house. “The property is a sophisticated blend of history, a time capsule of sorts, that has been thoughtfully renovated and built to fit today’s lifestyle and family needs,” says co-listing agent Maggie Gold Seelig of the five-bed, five-and-three-half-bath listing.
ample natural light flows into the main house’s living room.
Explore 8,200 square feet of living space, starting with the 18th-century home’s kitchen and dining area. A spacious island, white cabinets and stainless steel appliances adorn the space, brightened by ample natural light. Down the hall, a neutral living room offers the ideal space for entertaining. Windows overlooking the property surround the space—the current owner’s favorite seat to watch the snowfall. Completing the main level is a rustic yet elegant dining room with exposed beams, where a wood-burning fireplace adds a cozy touch.
The spacious primary bedroom
Venture upstairs to find additional living spaces, an office, guest bedrooms and the primary suite. The generous room features space for a seating area, two walk-in dressing rooms and an en suite with a deep soaking tub. Even more awaits beyond the main home—the barn houses an indoor basketball and pickleball court, exercise area, gaming loft, screen porches and more. A cathedral ceiling in the living area creates an open atmosphere, and a tall stone fireplace offers the perfect place to warm up after snowshoeing on the grounds.
Basketball enthusiasts will fall head-over-heels for the indoor basketball court.
“My favorite space is the living room in the barn,” says the current owner. “Parents can enjoy a glass of wine by the fireplace while kids entertain themselves on the basketball court. The barn is the ultimate entertaining space where you have spaces to create a cozy nook to entertain a few people but can also be opened up to host a charity event for 200.”

And off-property, there’s even more for homeowners to enjoy. Co-listing agent Peter Hill concludes: “131 Newton St. is an amenity-rich location with things to do from hiking one of Weston’s many trails and two reservoirs to enjoying rounds of golf and tennis at three private country clubs in town.” $5,795,000, 131 Newton St., Weston, Peter Hill and Maggie Gold Seelig, 508.353.9721 and 617.645.4999, mgsgrouprealestate.com
