Natick, MA

Only ten miles west of Boston and a quick ride by commuter rail or highway, the town of Natick is one of the fastest growing neighborhoods in Massachusetts. Bordered by five of the wealthiest towns in the state—Wayland, Weston, Wellesley, Dover and Sherborn—Natick has both historic roots and a vibrant contemporary arts scene.

Natick's historic downtown is a designated Massachusetts Cultural District and, with over 100 working artists and a year-round arts center, has been recognized as the artistic and cultural hub of MetroWest Boston. Settled in the 1650s as a farming community and a strategic defensive outpost for the port of Boston, Natick began to flourish as a manufacturing community in the mid-1800s with the invention of the sewing machine. Factories located in Natick produced the boots worn by Civil War soldiers and the baseballs used in the early years of the sport. In fact, the first plant ever to manufacture baseballs has been converted into condominiums!

Natick's sixteen square miles are home 34,250 residents, a working farm dating back to 1651, dedicated conservation and wildlife areas, a leg of the Boston Marathon, the headquarters of multi-national corporations and an upscale shopping mall.

Natick has a first-rate school system with a newly constructed, $80,000,000 high school, two middle schools and five elementary schools, which have consistently ranked among the highest in the state. Four private schools are also located in Natick, including a school for the performing arts which graduates more students who go on to study at Julliard than any school in the world.

Like many small towns, Natick has distinct neighborhoods that are defined architecturally. Housing styles range from Colonial- and Victorian-style architecture to newer ranches and capes. Along with the size of its resident population, Natick's housing prices have been consistently increasing in the past decade. The median home value is $480,000, and a two-three bedroom home averages between $400,000 and $500,000.
