Boxford Massachusetts is a sleepy rural town located just off Route 95. Boxford is chock full of protected land and trails so there are a lot of ponds and woods and pastures and open land. Each parcel of residential land is required to have a minimum of two acres so if space and privacy are what you value then this is the best place for you to set down roots.
Because of all of the open land and trails Boxford is an excellent town to raise horses and farm a little or just enjoy the open spaces. If you enjoy hiking and bird watching you should investigate the many excellent trails through the forests. An excellent place to start is Bald Hill Reservation located on Middleton Road just 1.6 miles form Exit 51 off Route 95. After your hike take a drive to Hansen’s Ice Cream Stand on Washington Street in West Boxford for some of the best home made ice cream you will ever taste.
Many of the homes here are upscale executive type dwellings but you can still find a mix of residences. Boxford is home to Masconomet Regional Schools which are considered one of the best public school systems in the state. All of these factors make Boxford a highly sought after address for families with school aged children. Come and visit Boxford but I warn you-you may want to live here!!
