Sherborn homes for rent
Green, bucolic, and an easy commute to Boston and the Route 128 high tech corridor, it’s no wonder that Sherborn attracts families and young professionals searching for the perfect place to settle down. Sherborn was a small farming town until the turn of the last century, remnants of which can still be felt today in the town’s open green space and low concentration of retail and commercial districts. Sherborn real estate is particularly valuable thanks to its school system’s reputation as one of the finest in the state.
Like many of the surrounding towns, Sherborn saw a population explosion in the years following World War II. Developments were built over the old farms as the population boomed and farming declined. The downtown area experienced a large expansion in the 1990s with the addition of a new firehouse, new retail shops, and even a skate park for the town’s kids. With so much change, the town has managed to keep over 50% of its land undeveloped, adding to its rural and pleasant character.
If you’re looking for apartments to rent in Sherborn, you might want to set your sites on a single family house. Sherborn apartments are in relatively short supply, but lovely 18th and 19th century homes with fine period detail abound. Many of Sherborn’s historic homes for rent have been modernized and contain features such as open floor plans and granite countertops. Sherborn has two quaint historic districts – the old town center and a two mile strip along North Main Street. There are also an amazing 77 houses scattered throughout the town that have been listed as well.
