Needham - Bradley Estate

Real Estate Agent with Realty Executives Boston West 113011
We know it as the Bradley Estate.  This  property along with many acres was given to the Town of Needham for its useby the former owner many years ago. Lots of weddings have been held here.   There are presently Rangers who take care of the property and prepare it for events.  It is a another place I like to come to get away from the noise and just read or relax in the beauty of the country side.  There are walking trails and in the summer there is a day camp across the road from this building. It appears that this will be the site of the Senior Center.  The present Senior Center really needs so much work and there isn't adequate parking.  It looks like there is a green light to go forward with the project to house the Senior Center at the Bradley Estate site.  They will ask for $500,000 from Town Meeting Members to launch the project.  They are awaiting for Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick for the decision as to whether the town would need to replace the land.  If they get he go ahead the town would build on 3 acres that are now classified as conservation land.   In an earlier blog  I wrote about the history of this property. The property is close to the next town of Wellesley and about 3 miles out of  the center of Needham.

One of the things I miss most, living in the desert southwest, is seeing great trees like those in your photo. 

The predominant "tree" of the Sonoran Desert is the Saguaro Cactus.  That little one on the left is about four feet tall, and probably took 20 years to get that size. They grow to be as much as 50' tall, and live for 200 years.  I miss big trees, though!
