It's tough to beat the picturesque towns of New England with their graceful church steeples and stately houses. Milton offers an added bonus: It's just 10 miles from downtown Boston and, for those who don't want to deal with traffic, there's a station on the commuter train line.

This English Tudor was built in the 1920s and features the steeply-pitched roof and brick and half-timbered wall exterior that is characteristic of the style.

The large living room has a beamed ceiling and an elegant, wood-burning fireplace. The kitchen features a large pantry and a cozy breakfast nook with built-in benches.

Upstairs is a huge master suite with a walk-in closet and two chandeliers. Throughout the home, which also includes a sun room and a library, there's plenty of attention to detail, including beautifully finished hardwood floors, wall sconces, French doors and multi-paned windows.
