Woodcrest Acres is a large neighborhood of homes along the coast of the Framingham Reservoir. These houses are located on a network of roads east off of Badger Road and Myrtle Street. The main roads in this neighborhood are Jodie Road, Singletary Lane, Travis Drive, and Hickory Hill Lane. This quiet neighborhood has very little through-traffic and sidewalks throughout the area, so you can feel comfortable walking the dog or jogging around the block.
The homes in the Woodcrest Acres neighborhood are mostly large Colonials with four or more bedrooms, three or more bathrooms, a large yard, and thousands of square feet of living space. Most of the homes in the area also have an attached garage, which comes in handy during the winter months. Many of the homes along Singletary Lane also have a scenic waterfront view, as most of these homes are located along the coast of Framingham Reservoir Number Two.
