Suburban Spotlight: Lexington

Since we celebrated Patriot’s Day last week, I thought it would be fitting to highlight the historically rich town of Lexington. Located 10 miles from Boston, this suburb was where one of the first shots of the Revolutionary War was fired. Today, it’s an affluent suburb and main stay on “Top Places to Live” lists.

Things to Do

Lexington Common

Explore the rich history of the town at the site where the first battle of the American Revolution took place. You can also visit the Old Burying Ground and the Old Belfry where the alarm sounded calling the militia to battle.

Explore the Robust Downtown

Historical houses and architecture meets today in this quaint downtown full of restaurants and shops. Perfect for strolling with family.

Dining

The dining scene deserved its own paragraph. Some of the top rated restaurants include Mario’s, il Casale, Town Meeting Bistro, and Love at First Bite Thai Kitchen.

Market Snapshot

A tale that’s all too familiar in 2021, homes in the suburbs are selling faster and sale price is up significantly over last year. Rich history, stellar school system, and proximity to Boston and highways have always made Lexington a desirable suburb to buy in and that reputation is standing strong into the foreseeable future. If you know anyone thinking of selling in Lexington, now is a great time to strike given the high demand for single-family homes.

Average Sale Price: $1,671,930.14 (+23.21%)
Average Days on Market: 50 (-39.76%)
