Top 10 Country Homes & Horse Properties for September 24, 2021
It's the first weekend Fall, though summer temperatures still prevail. For the last 10 months, the market has moved so swiftly that I haven't been able to offer a Top 10 List because the choicest properties were snapped up before I could write about them here.
There is a change in the air, and it's more than the shift of the seasons. The Greater Boston Real Estate Market is evolving, too, back to a more normal tempo in which buyers have a chance to sample the wares before rushing headlong into an offer. And so, I'm delighted to showcase the country homes that most caught my eye this week, for your reading pleasure. There is a little something here for everyone, regardless of budget. Among these captivating country homes are properties in Brimfield, Charlton, Lincoln, Pepperell, Princeton, and towns in between. If you don't see your perfect place here, I'd love to help you find it.
