The hillside home is a location north of Natick Banks in the Commonwealth in 2287.

Background

A small residence overlooking Lake Cochituate and the town of Natick, with the remains of the long-deceased owners joined by a yao guai, radroaches, and bloodbugs[1]

Layout

Following a roadway from Natick, one will pass a settler campsite while heading towards the Natick power station. The road splits to the right at a "caution falling rocks" sign, and true to the sign's word, several vehicles can be found on the roadway, crushed by boulders. At a second falling rocks sign, a motorcycle and the remains of its owner mark the end of the road and the beginning of the driveway to the hillside home.

The house is two stories, with the second story crushed by a fallen tree. A stand-alone garage is situated to the side, behind a white Pick-R-Up truck with two bags of fertilizer and a sledgehammer in the bed on top of a piece of plywood. In the backyard, several creatures are found, fighting one another. A swing and doghouse are in the corner along a white picket fence.

Inside the house, the fallen tree has collapsed the second floor into the first. Heading up the stairs, one can find the remains of the previous occupant of the house in the bathtub, missing its skull. A short double-barrel shotgun rests in their lap and blood splatter on the wall indicates they committed suicide. In the garage, a second set of remains can be found, hanging from the rafters with a tipped over stool at their feet.

Once the player approaches the remains of the hanged man, a deathclaw may appear outside the garage and charge towards the Sole Survivor. Due to its geometry and the cramped nature of the garage, the deathclaw can get stuck inside.

Notes

The Deathclaw can be lured to the nearby Roadside Pines Motel, which is occupied by raiders; this can be a useful way to kill all the raiders and get the deathclaw's health low.

Appearances

The Natick hillside home appears only in Fallout 4.

Behind the scenes

The skeleton is posed in the Creation Kit, but is not actually attached to the noose. If disturbed in any way, which activates the Havok physics engine, it will simply fall to the ground, except for the head, which will stay on the noose.
