The Hartwell House is a historic house at 121 Willow Street in Reading, Massachusetts. The 1.5 story wood frame house was built in 1918 for George Hartwell, an engineer. The most prominent feature of this Craftsman/Bungalow style house is its stonework: the front porch is supported by tapering piers of fieldstone, and the full length of its chimney is similarly composed. There is a decorative woodwork trellis at the peak of the front gable.[2]

The house was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1984.[1]
