Today Wilma and I adventured to the Codman Estate also referred to as
“the Grange”. This historic home was built in 1740 and owned by five generations of the Codman family before becoming a historic home. The Estate is approximately sixteen acres and includes the home, and gardens. Tours of the home are available, however currently are on hold due to COVID.
We had a historic adventure to the Codman Estate. We took a local walk before heading over to explore this historic home. We parked and began down a dirt road, before arriving at the Home. The Home had a grand entrance with several stairs leading us to the substantial mansion. There was not much to see but the Home was well maintained, and attractive. We wandered around the home soon finding the Italian garden, a fountain-pond filled with gorgeous water lilies, flowers, and several statues. We sauntered through the garden. I loved the European style, and especially appreciated the tiger lilies and water lilies. As we got near the pond there was a massive frog panic, quite humorous. Poor Wilma wanted to go in the water but it looked a little unhealthy for sipping so I did venture too close. We took our time admiring this little garden even laying out in the grass. Just perfect!
From there we explored some nearby trails, although it was unclear if they were related to the Estate. After walking on one for a couple minutes I located a sign for the Bay Circuit. Therefore we decided to turn around as Wilma appeared hot and we had already obtained our walk on this warm summer day.
Our last part of the adventure was completing our loop around the home and relaxing in the green, soft, shady grass! As I mentioned Wilma seemed quite warm I thought this was the perfect way to end our Adventure. We were able to cool down and before heading home. Lounging in the grass was by far Wilma’s highlight of the adventure (haha)! So glad we could visit the Codman Estate today, a nice surprise (Rating: 4).
