It’s about that time of year: The city’s population seems to double with the return of students, Comm. Ave. grows crowded with traffic, leaf-peeping road trips call us out to the ‘burbs—and all in all, getting out of the city sounds better than ever. Well, this contemporary single-family, situated 25 miles southwest of Boston, may be the great (permanent) escape you’ve been looking for.

Six-plus acres of trees and lawn stretch out around the low-profile house—and there’s even a pond, where the current owners have spotted wildlife such as fish, frogs, herons, and beaver. Fed by underground streams, the pond ices over in the winter to become a natural ice rink. After a twirl around the frozen pool, carry your skates over to the neighboring helipad—yes, you can land your helicopter there—which doubles as a great platform for a fire pit and circle of chairs. Summer or winter, grab some marshmallows and get toasty.

But this home is so much more than just its sylvan surroundings. Floor-to-ceiling windows, skylights, cathedral ceilings, and a towering stone fireplace make the 3,773 square feet feel even more spacious than they are. At the same time, pine ceilings and glossy wooden countertops (peep that extra-long breakfast bar) lend intimate lodge-like vibes to the home. On a practical note, there are two back-up generators in case a snow storm decides to strike.

And for those hoping to get another lap or two in before the true autumn temperatures settle in, Farm Pond is a kettle lake just a 10-minute drive away, ideal for swimming and sailing.
