A townhouse development for ages 55 and older has been proposed for the 46-acre Carberry estate on Canton Avenue in Milton.
MILTON – A developer has proposed building 70 townhouse condominiums for people age 55 and older on an upper Canton Avenue estate.
John Dawley, president and chief executive officer of the Burlington-based Northland Residential Corp., made a presentation on the plans to selectmen Monday night.
The development would be built on the 46-acre Carberry Estate at 1672-1726 Canton Ave., which is next to the Blue Hills Reservation. The estate had once belonged to Roger Wolcott, who was Massachusetts governor for nearly four years at the end of the 19th century.
“It’s a nice piece of property and a valuable piece of property,” Dawley told the board. “It is historically significant.”
Dawley said there would also be five more units in three of the existing buildings on the property. The units would cost between $1 million and $1.2 million, with 10 percent of the units set aside for moderate-income owners.
Selectmen Chairman Thomas Hurley said “it is good to see you plan to keep the historic buildings.”
Zoning changes would be needed for the proposed development. They are expected to be considered at the October special town meeting.
