Beverly Makes Boston Globe’s List of Top Places to Live in 2013

May 6, 2013

Beverly was named one of Greater Boston’s Top Places to Live in 2013 in The Boston Globe Magazine Sunday, May 5. The town was included among 12 other communities in Eastern Massachusetts where the real estate market is ‘sizzling.’

The commute to downtown Boston – about 40 minutes – is hardly a deterrent when a city’s got as much going for it as Beverly, located at the confluence of the Bass, Danvers, and North rivers, which form Beverly Harbor, with access to Salem Sound.

Originally an agricultural and working waterfront community, Beverly became a summer resort for city dwellers in the 1800s, and many properties built between the late 19th century and World War II still stand, from bungalows to Queen Annes. There’s also plenty of green space, and though each neighborhood, from Prides Crossing to Fish Flake Hill, has its unique charm, taken together they’re “sophisticated but very family-friendly and family-oriented” according to Patricia Marcotte, an agent with Beverly’s RE/Max Advantage.

There’s just a lot going on, and people really get to know one another. Beverly’s a beautiful place to live.”
