Barlin Acres (or the Keyes-Dakin House) was an historic house located at 284 School Street in Boylston, Massachusetts. The area was first settled in 1718 by Thomas Keyes, whose son Cyprian built a house on the property in 1734. Keyes' property was eventually acquired by George Sumner Barton and his wife, Elizabeth Trumbull Lincoln. They named the property "Barlin Acres" by combining parts of their last names, and expanded the house. One of their notable additions was a room that was disassembled in England, brought to the estate, and reassembled as part of the house, and used by them as a music room.[2]

The house was listed on the National Register of Historic Places on November 26, 1982.[1] The house was demolished to make way for the clubhouse of the Cyprian Keys Golf Club. The clubhouse contains architectural elements recovered from the house, including some flooring and the 19th century Music Room.[2]
