FOX 25 ZIP TRIP COMES TO CARLISLE
The Zip Trip on Friday, June 19th will be in Carlisle, MA at the Town Common – 27 School Street.
Carlisle is a beautiful town 22 miles northwest of Boston located in Middlesex County. As of the 2010 US Census, the population was 4,852. Almost thirty percent of the land in Carlisle, about 1,100 acres, is protected conservation land and provides residents with an array of recreational activities. It’s no wonder Henry David Thoreau called Carlisle, “city of the woods.”
As of June, 2015, the average annual selling price of a single-family home in Carlisle was $964,274. In the past 12 months, 56 single-family homes were sold, and 23 of them (41%), sold for over $1 million. The average selling price for a condo in Carlisle was $395,000, and interestingly enough, there was only one condo sold in town in the last 12 months. No multi-family homes were sold in Carlisle in the past year.
A few of the big draws of this charming rural town are the scenic and unspoiled woods, winding roads, beautiful historic farms, and a working cranberry bog.
Another highly desirable aspect of the community is the school system. Carlisle is known for providing children with quality education. The Carlisle School District manages an elementary school and middle school collectively known as Carlisle School. In 2014 Carlisle School ranked better than 99.6% of elementary schools in Massachusetts. The High School, Concord-Carlisle Regional H.S., is widely regarded as one of the top public high schools in the state. In 2009, Boston Magazine rated CCHS the number one public high school in cost efficiency and third in academic performance in eastern Massachusetts.
