This property is maintained by the Trustees of Reservations. The historic house is interesting. The formal gardens are very attractive. There are well maintained woodland trails that provide easy walking. Insect repellent is recommended. There are restrooms. Worth a detour, but not a journey.

This place is amazing. It's kept in a colonial theme with very spacious rooms for any type of function.The grounds are kept up and offer a great location for photos. Added bonus plenty of parking and access to 128, 95, and the Boston skyline.

The Bradley Estate is a great spot for a leisurely hike. Beautiful gardens to view in season. They also sponsor special events including music recitals, painting classes, lectures, photo walks, yoga, ballroom dancing and more.

A beautiful old house with well maintained gardens, surrounded by fields and woods. Although the house itself is not open to the public every day, there is ample opportunity for walking and photography. Well worth the challenge of Route 138.

Hi JQM, thank you for the question. The main building is handicap accessible as are several of the paths, but access to the ornamental gardens would be tricky as you would need to descend a few steps.
