Town Essence:
Andover is a suburban community on the cutting edge of advances in high technology and education.  While the town is home to big-name companies like Raytheon Corporation, Smith & Nephew, Wyeth, Phillips Medical, Proctor and Gamble, Verizon, Straumann and the world-renowned educational facility, Phillips Academy, Andover achieves a small town atmosphere with its campus-like setting and great down town shopping area.  Its residential neighborhoods are an eclectic mix of architectural styles from 17th century farmhouses and the Victorian mansions of 19th century textile barons to a variety of 20th century single family residences.

Homes of Andover is proud to offer prime properties at the Andover Country Club.

Situated at the intersection of routes 495 and 93, Andover is just 20 miles north of Boston and close to the New Hampshire border.  The MBTA commuter rail and a commuter bus make the residential town a convenient option for commuters to Boston.  Andover's location along the banks of the Shawsheen and Merrimack Rivers and bordering the 3,000 acre a Harold Parker State Forest offers its residents many recreational opportunities.  Several local conservation groups have saved thousands of acres of wilderness for hiking and cross country skiing.  A public  beach on Pomp's Pond and several supervised public playgrounds are open in summer.  This town has two 18 hole golf courses, an active YMCA and many tennis facilities, both public and private.

The downtown has a great mix of local shops and an active merchant association. This complements the Andover restaurants that always win reviews. This is the hub of activity for parades, arts festivals, and musical concerts. Park your car, walk the town and enjoy!
