Fairmount Estates is a small neighborhood just south of Medway, Massachusetts in northern Franklin. The homes in this area are located on Cortland Drive, Empire Drive, and Khoshivas Drive, which form an enclosed circle north of Bent Street. Route 109, 126, and 140 as well as I-495 and a stop on the MBTA Commuter Rail are all near this development, making it easy for locals to travel throughout New England.
The homes in the Fairmount Estates neighborhood vary a bit in size, but consist mostly of Colonials with four or more bedrooms and two or more bathrooms. Many of these homes have a large lawn, attached garage, and more than 2,000 square feet of living space. This quiet neighborhood has streetlamps and sidewalks as well as no through-traffic.
This neighborhood is less than a mile south of the Charles River, a popular place to kayak, canoe, and fish for bass, perch, catfish, and more. The Charles River feeds into many smaller bodies of water throughout Franklin, the largest of which is Populatic Pond, which rests less than two miles east of Fairmount Estates. This pond is also popular among locals as fishing hotspot. Those who enjoy hiking, mountain biking, or simply enjoying nature can head to one of the area’s many state forests and parks including Wrentham State Forest, Franklin State Forest, and F. Gilbert Hills State Forest.
Fairmount Estates is about four miles north of Central Street, the road in Franklin where most of the city’s shopping plazas and local restaurants can be found. Larger shopping centers, Wrentham Village Premium Outlets and Patriot Place, can both be found about ten miles away in Wrentham and Foxborough, respectively. Both of these plazas have more than 100 excellent stores and eateries. Gillette Stadium, the home of the New England Revolution and the New England Patriots, is also located in the same complex as Patriot Place.
