Historic Country Living at Merriam Woods
Now available at Merriam Woods in Grafton, MA is your opportunity to build a new home that you custom design. Your new home will be elegant and located in a comfortable historic country setting that is close to Boston and Worcester. Merriam Woods offers unusually distinguished living because it is part of an intimate development of just four multi-acre building sites and it is located on the Boston side of historically-preserved Town of Grafton. Additionally, Merriam Woods homeowners have deeded access rights to the winding brooks and horse friendly / walking trails of the Great Meadow Conservation Area.
The project is the vision of the landowner who is a long time resident of the Town and Gilmore Building Company, Inc. (The welcome sign at the entrance is shown on the right.)
The Merriam Woods Offer
The intimate Merriam Woods community consists of only 4 privacy-optimized wooded estate lots. These 4 estate lots are being offered and developed using the "MW bundle concept." The "bundle" concept means each of the lots being offered for purchase includes the land, your personalized design work and the construction of your custom home. While initially there were 4 new home "bundle" opportunities available, now there are just 3 remaining. The remaining lots range in size from 2.8 acres to 3.9 acres. The starting price for a multi-acre "bundle" is approximately $900,000 but it depends on the home size and it's design.
Extraordinary Location Adjacent to The Great Meadow Conservation Area
Bordering Merriam Woods is the Great Meadow Conservation area. Each lot has deeded access to the the conservation area. The Great Meadow was also established by the land owner as part of this project as a gift to the Town. The Grafton Land Trust considers the Great Meadow Conservation area with its meadows, trails and fresh water fishery, Miscoe Brook, to be the most desirable nature filled location in the town.
Architectural Design Theme
Consistent with the historic farm nature of this section of town, the architectural theme of this unique project is the New Old House. New - Old Homes have historically inspired designs reminiscent of homes found on Main Street in New England towns in the 1800's. The homes of this architectural design concept are highly decorated, stately and warm in appearance. These designs have time-proven enduring value.

Once you pick one of the estate lots, the Merriam Woods Design-Build Team will collaborate with you to complete your home. The team includes Gilmore Building Company, Inc. of Grafton, MA and Connor Mill-Built Homes of Burlington, VT. Gilmore Building Co. is the project manager and the builder.
