Academy Hill Acton
One of Andover’s most historic neighborhoods, Academy Hill is a magnificent community named for Phillips Academy, one of the oldest and most prestigious private secondary schools in the country, which is located within this prime neighborhood. Beyond the beautiful campus, there are historic homes built as far back as the 1700s. However, development of the peaceful area continued through the years, and now the neighborhood features many homes built through the 20th century and even within the past few years. Perhaps due to the different eras of stunning construction, the gorgeous homes of Academy Hill come in a plethora of styles, from the historic homes to enticing colonials, ranches, and even condos.
Academy Hill is one of the most desired neighborhoods in Andover, located just south of the quintessential Andover Town Center, with many enjoyable restaurants and cute shops. There are also benefits to being close to Phillips Academy, such as the stunning Addison Gallery of American Art located on the school’s campus. Route 28 bisects this alluring community, with Rt. 125 bordering it to the east and also offering easy access to I-93.
