Norfolk Massachusetts Real Estate

Norfolk homes hold the perfect balance between rural and suburban life. Ask a resident what kind of town they live in, and they’ll tell you it’s a semi-rural suburban community, perfect for those who want convenience and nature. What’s more, it’s a mere 20 miles from downtown Boston, so you can easily get a taste of city life.

The town began its story in 1669, when it thrived as a source of fertile farmland and fresh-water fishing. The town remained small and agricultural until King Philip’s War, when all the residents had to abandon their home. However, not willing to forsake this incredible area, the resident’s returned after the war’s conclusion. They brought with them the spirit and resources to make industries, and founded three cotton mills and a paper mill.


The introduction of industry allowed more people to migrate in and call Norfolk their home.  The residents value hard work and independence, and that spirit is reflected in the town’s current self-sufficiency. With centralized emergency services, including a dedicated police force and fire department, and an amazing local newspaper, you’ll never feel the need to leave the town.

The town also offers a breathtaking wildlife sanctuary that features animals you’d rarely see anywhere else. The beauty isn’t confined to the sanctuary. The town’s garden club works to make sure every resident has a gorgeous yard and the parks are always pristine. These great parks come in particularly handy with all the youth activities the town provides. From lacrosse to volleyball to boy and girl scouts, the youth of Norfolk always have plenty to do.

Don’t think that the adults will be left as mere spectators. There are book clubs, sports clubs, auto clubs, and almost any other club you could be interested in. Whether you’re exploring the area’s amazing local restaurants or trying your hand at a skill-required sport, you’ll find something you’ll love in Norfolk.

As a predominantly single-family home community, Norfolk homes for sale have been seeing a significant upswing in value. Many homes are still selling for less than they are originally listed for, but the general trend is the value increases. Moreover, because of its prime location in the heart of historic Massachusetts, Norfolk real estate values have been and continue to be higher than average, helping this area become a great investment.
