Both W. Concord and Concord proper are great places to live. Iâ€™ve lived in Concord 19 years and have children in three levels of public schools. Both centers have a commuter rail and great shopping and dining areas.
Each center has center has a different flavor. One is more historic and has more artsy shops and the other has many shops which you will find yourself shopping in often. People prefer one area over the other based on personal preference.
You canâ€™t go wrong in either area. How much you can afford might dictate where you live. Each part of town has equally expensive homes. More than likely you will need to compromise between a home locations, square footage, acres, style, amenities, condition, and location to commuter rail or route 2 and 128 access.
Just prior to my arrival in town a slow and steady transformation started in W. Concord center and continues today. I happen to live within walking distance to W. Concord center. Some time ago, I considered selling my home. Though, I couldnâ€™t find a location I felt was superior to where I was currently living. So, I decided to do a major addition. Iâ€™ve never regretted my decision.
All three elementary schools are new. Willard was most recently completed just over a year ago. There are 2 middle schools and 1 regional high school. Talks are underway to build a new high school. There are several great infant and preschool options in town.
I would love to help you! I can show you the ins and outs of the town. Iâ€™m can offer you much knowledge on Concord and surrounding towns. I am very knowledgeable to all things related to children from infants through high school. Also, I understand commuting issues. In my prior financial career, I worked in Boston, Charlestown, Waltham, Burlington, and Westborough.
