Alfresco Living: 6 Homes with Outdoor Fireplaces and Firepits


Westwoods is a quiet, elegant retreat with easy access to Greater Boston. The 74-acre property consists of four contiguous parcels of largely conserved land abutting nearly 300 acres of conservation land. Westwoods is in use as a nonprofit retreat with private walking trails and ponds adjacent to the town’s trail network. The 10,600-square-foot, shingle-style main house is complemented by beautiful outdoor spaces, including a rustic stone firepit, a secluded stone sanctuary, wooden gazebo/meditation well, stone terraces, and a koi pond overlooking a meditation labyrinth. A short walk away from the main house is a 620-square-foot office with a full bathroom and a porch and a 1,600-square-foot gambrel-roofed art studio structure on 2.82 acres. Its two-level, 700-square-foot, open gathering space has 17-foot ceilings and a bank of north-facing windows. It features a welcoming foyer, a full kitchen, and three accessible, ADA-compliant bathrooms. The caretaker’s house offers an additional 1,900 square feet of living space. It was extensively updated with new electrical, plumbing, and appliances and includes three bedrooms, two bathrooms, an open-concept kitchen-living-dining area, office, den, and a private patio and lawn. Two barns are just across the field from the main house and studio.
