Be Natalie was when she frst saw Highland Meadows’ lush setting and the spectacular view from Pine Summit Circle. But her husband was astonished by something a little closer to home – our ability to create a heated three-car garage for him, with hobby area, custom built to his specifcations.

THE TOP TEN MAVERICKS, MARVELS, AND MOMENTS TO MAKE YOU FALL TRULY, MADLY, DEEPLY IN LOVE WITH BOSTON ALL OVER AGAIN. BY SCOTT KEARNAN
The spirit of Boston has always been about the here and now. It’s the awareness that dreams can be achieved, but the future can never be controlled. But we sure can try. After all, this is where patriots in three-cornered hats and tea party protestors spurred America’s birth.
