Listing of the Day
Location: Milton, Massachusetts
Price: $2.95 million
When describing their home, which lies down a “bumpy little country lane” upon a lush 2.15 acres, owners Frank and Mercedes Mulligan make sure to emphasize that the sea frogs you hear at night are a feature. That you’re six miles from Boston is a fact belied by the calm buzz of the nighttime soundscape.
Mr. Mulligan, a developer from Mullingar, Ireland, moved to South Boston 33 years ago. He and his wife Mercedes built this house in Milton in 2008, and have lived there since.
The Mulligans chose Boston-based architects Chang and Sylligardos to design the home—the sharp and cool elegance of its contemporary design is offset by the airiness of its interior space, where soaring ceilings and oversized windows bring the lush outdoors inside (each of the home’s six bedrooms features panoramic, leafy vistas). Its stylish minimalism is softened by the warmth it gains from being flooded with natural light.

The 6,800-square-foot property includes six bedrooms, four full bathrooms and two half bathrooms. The second level offers a guest wing with private bedroom and en suite bathroom, as well as a small fitness area.
Radiant heat flooring throughout the house, as well as a sectioned air conditioning system, makes this home particularly energy efficient. The sensitivity and automation of the home’s heating and cooling system make it hassle free, according to Mr. Mulligan. “You don’t really have to do anything about it,” he said.
Only a 15-minute drive from the heart of the city, Milton is one of Boston’s closer suburbs. The town benefits from being partially covered by the Blue Hills Reservation, a state park favored by hikers. The recreational playground can be reached by foot from the house.
The area is, according to Gibson Sotheby’s International Realty agent Michael George, attracting discerning city-dwellers who command space and privacy, but not at the expense of convenience.
Milton lies within the famed Cunningham school district.
