One of the most famous towns across the country, the iconic
Revolutionary War town of Concord is nestled along the banks of the Concord,
Sudbury, and Assabet Rivers. Though it
might be small in size and population, this town offers residents a scenic,
natural backdrop with a big historical past.
With sparkling ponds, impressive historical sites, and a literary and
political past that rival few American towns, Concord remains one of the most
sought-after places to live in the state of Massachusetts.
Just a mere 20 miles from Boston, with two commuter rail stations serving the town and quick access to Route 2, Concord is popular with commuters. However, within the town's boundaries, you'll find everything from museums and wildlife refuges to bookstores, art houses, libraries, and recreation centers. With two picture perfect town centers containing everything from high-end vintage thrift stores to comforting diners, Concord and West Concord Centers are constantly buzzing with activity.
Though Concord certainly has a rich history and myriad community activities, its abundant educational opportunities are highly sought after. Students attend Concord-Carlisle Regional High School, a school that, according to Boston Magazine, was ranked No. 1 for cost efficiency and No. 3 in academic performance. The district also boasts three elementary schools and one middle school, also known for their excellent educational achievements.
As a much-desired location, Concord's housing stock is in high demand. While owning a starter home in Concord will run right around half a million dollars or more, those looking for a roomier property can expect to pay upwards of $700k. The average home price in the area is about $482,000. However, this includes condos, which go for a minimum of $250k. Additionally, large, sprawling estates are abundant in the town, often selling for over $2 million.
