The small town of Sudbury, Massachusetts enjoys both a rich colonial history dating back to the American Revolution and a leadership position in the mini-computer revolution of the 1970s.
Located midway between the cities of Boston on the East and Worcester on the West, Sudbury is home to slightly more than 18,000 residents, the oldest operating inn in the country, and numerous greenhouses where carnations are cultivated in abundance. Thanks to thoughtful planning and one acre zoning, Sudbury's commercial development is limited to the borders of Route 20, and the 24.6 square mile town maintains a rural feel enhanced by acres of undeveloped open space and preserved wetlands.
With the growth of nearby research and engineering employment opportunities, Sudbury continued to expand its large residential subdivisions into the 1990s and became one of the wealthiest towns in Massachusetts.
Known for the math and science achievements of its students, the Sudbury school system is consistently listed among the top twenty in Massachusetts and ranked fourth in the state in 2011. School-age children attend one of four elementary schools, a middle school and the brand new Lincoln-Sudbury Regional High School, located at Sudbury's geographic border with Lincoln. Partially attributed to the excellent educational opportunities, Money Magazine has recognized Sudbury as the Best Town in Massachusetts to Raise a Family.
The average income family income in Sudbury is over $220,000. Housing options in Sudbury range from a mean price of approximately $520,000 for a mid-sized single family home to well over a million dollars for a larger home. Condominiums located in multi-unit buildings and attached townhouses range in price from the high $200,000s to the high $400,000s depending on size and location, however, townhouses in the town can go up to almost $900k.
