Charlton Ma. Real Estate Information
Though only 14 miles out of Worcester, Charlton was once considered too rural to attract serious buyers. USDA Farmers Loans, designed to give low interest loans to willing purchasers, were a tool to try to populate rural areas. Charlton has since become a desired location with a population that has grown significantly over the years, thus attributing to increased home values. This is testament that some government programs actually work well.
Median income per household is higher than many towns of its size. A nice regional school, Bay Path Regional, makes its home in Charlton.
In 1735, Charlton was first settled and became a separate district in 1755. The town was named after Sir Francis Charlton. It was incorporated in 1775. In 2005, the town of Charlton celebrated its 250th anniversary. Though farming was the major occupation during the 1800s, a number of woolen mills were built during the twentieth century.
Charlton boasts of some nice open spaces, and has good access to Routes 20 and the Mass Pike. Recreational activities include several parks, and a nice swimming and boating area named Buffumville Lake. For golf enthusiasts Heritage Country Club, an 18 hole gold course, is considered one of the finest public courses in the area. Life Tech Ventures Summer Camp makes its home in Charlton and offers children a nature’s classroom experience.
We have worked in Charlton for many years, helping many new buyers find homes in Charlton Ma. We have also represented some homeowners in town as they try to sell their homes. I find the community very nice, and a great opportunity for families looking to find a welcoming town that includes a good school system.
