History and Tradition
Even long-time Massachusetts residents bask in their capital city's rich Colonial history and tradition. And residents of the state share a special advantage: No matter how quaint and small the village they live in, no matter how "pure country" the landscape that surrounds them, they are all within an easy drive of Boston. Even in the summertime, the playground of Cape Cod is just a morning's drive away.
Wellesley
One of the wealthier suburban towns west of Boston is Wellesley. The well-established town, just 15 miles from Boston, is lovely and heavily treed with neighborhoods full of stately, even historic homes. The median house price is now in the high six figures and there are estates selling for well into the million-dollar-plus range. One current listing, for example, is an English Country manor on almost a half-acre sited directly on the Wellesley Country Club golf course. Listing price is $2,395,000. Because Wellesley is home to three institutions of higher learning—most notably, Wellesley College, Hillary Clinton's alma mater—education of young children is taken very seriously here.
Newton
Another suburban town close to Boston is Newton—just six miles west of Boston—and known as "The Garden City." Bordered on three sides by the Charles River, Newton is a highly desirable place to live because of its proximity to Boston and its attractive neighborhoods—there are 14 villages in all, each with its own unique character. One current listing for $2,225,000 is a charming 14-room Colonial built in 2003. The three-story home of 4,789 square feet has six bedrooms and 5.5 baths.
