The historic town of Concord sits right in the heart of Middlesex County just over 10 miles from Boston. It currently has a population of 17,600 and was founded in 1635 after a peaceful agreement with the local native population. The town's name is another word for that agreement. Not only is it famous for its role in the eponymous battle in 1775, which took place on Old North Bridge, but it's also known for its large literary contribution thanks to local authors like Ralph Waldo Emerson, Henry David Thoreau and Louisa May Alcott among others. The legendary grape was first grown here in 1849.
The modern town has everything you'd expect a moderately sized community to have from a small hospital to great specialty shops, a grocery store, cafes, restaurants and several public schools. Concord shares its public high school with the neighboring town of Carlisle, and there are also two private prep schools in the area. It's easy for commuters to get to Boston with the MBTA's Fitchburg Line making two stops in town, and Route 2 runs right across the center for road traffic.
Concord has individual apartments listed, but for those who prefer rental communities, a good option is Concord Mews on Nathan Pratt Drive. This 350-unit development is suited for every group from individuals to families with floor plans ranging between 1-3 bedrooms and 1-2 baths. Each of the Mews' 15 floor plans has plenty of open space, and all of them have sophisticated kitchens, beautiful views, and a mix of tiled and carpeted floors. The space is designed like a park on the shores of the Assabet River and includes a large fire pit, a private swimming pool and a large clubhouse with all kinds of recreational options. It's also just a short distance to the town center and the T station.
