Phineas Wright House; A Treasure to be Shared!

Phineas Wright House

“Too much goodness not to share” is how Wendy Harrop, owner of The Phineas Wright House in Bolton, would describe her property.

The Phineas Wright House was built in 1785 by the third reverend of the First Parish Church in Bolton. In the last 230 years only five other families have lived in this great antique house.
After living in California her whole life, Wendy decided to follow her dream of living in the New England countryside and she and her husband Keith purchased the Phineas Wright House 6 years ago. She hasn’t looked back since!

The property came complete with a fabulous barn that Wendy and her husband painstakingly renovated. Wendy had worked as a wedding and event planner in California and then at the Nashoba Winery in Bolton. She envisioned using the barn to host fabulous celebrations! A local artisan built three gorgeous farmhouse tables for use in the barn, using wood that was removed from the third floor hay loft. Wendy collected chairs from thrift & antique stores, flea markets, and yard sales, and she hung strings of tiny white lights casting a magical glow.

Wendy has big plans for the use of her barn and beautiful property as it is now available as a venue for intimate weddings, rehearsal dinners, and birthday celebrations, just to name a few.

Wendy also will be collaborating with an amazing group of artisans, entrepreneurs, collectors, chefs, bakers, artists, and authors who will be offering workshops at the barn including floral design, wine & cheese tasting, rustic sign making, and gardening to name a few. Grab a friend and a bottle of wine and learn a new skill in an intimate, interactive setting.

Additionally, she will be holding a one week nature camp on the property for kids ages 4 to 6 years old. It will be a week of discovering the nature above, below, and around us.

I have had the honor of attending several events at the Phineas Wright property and it is a wonderful and unique experience that you won’t want to miss!

I want to thank Wendy for capitalizing on her vision for this special property and for creating a valuable asset to the residents of Bolton and beyond!
