The Boston Business Journal this morning had this to say about Milton:
"The town of Milton, home to Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick, has been named the second-best place to live in Money Magazines annual list of the countrys 100 best small towns."
I can provide you with additional details, and help you find your ideal home there. Why not live in the second best smaller town in all of the USA - just a few miles south of where you are currently living???
Please contact me through my website below for complimentary, private consultation.
There are only two public school systems in this area that offer a French immersion program - Milton & Holliston. Both are very nice communities, although Milton will be a much easier commute to Cambridge.
There are private schools, too, but the costs can get prohibitive.
Check out: http://www.miltonps.com for more Milton school info
I have heard there can sometimes be a waiting list for the French programs so you may want to talk to the schools first before you consider moving.
If I can be of any assistance in your search, please do not hesitate to give me a call.
And btw, welcome to Boston!
All the best,

You have received many good ideas and there is a lot to consider. A couple of other thoughts are Concord and Lincoln. Both towns are on the commuter rail and have so much to offer. There is a coop farm on the Lincoln/Concord line and schools is both towns are superb. If you want to consider either town, please feel free to contact me. I'd be happy to tell you more about these towns.

I think Milton is a great area for what you are looking for. It has that small town feel but is still very convenient to the Boston area. Your husband shouldn't have a problem commuting to Kendall daily and should be well within his hour limit.
Please let me know if I can be of any assistance to you in your search for a new home. Good luck!
Would you consider Metro West? Some towns that might fit your needs but offer easy commuting options to Cambridge are:
And there are many more!
Feel free to send me an email or call me directly to discuss if you'd like!

Natick (might be too far)
Winchester (a bit further)
Arlington and Waltham have decent elementary schools and a "neighborhood-y" feel, but generally speaking public schools here aren't that great)
Good luck! I've lived and worked in all of these towns for the last 15 years. Please let me know if I can assist you with your search.
