Most of the homes in the Franklin Woods neighborhood are four bedroom Colonials with three or more bedrooms and upwards of 2,000 square feet of living space. Most of these houses also have a large yard, attached garage, and plenty of privacy due to the surrounding woodland areas. Some homes in the area also have a waterfront view, as there are couple of small ponds nearby and a narrow stream runs perpendicular through Bridle Path.
This neighborhood is just a couple miles north of Central Street in Franklin, the site of many small shopping plazas, pharmacies, banks, grocery stores, and local businesses. Residents of Franklin Woods looking to spend the day at a larger shopping center have many excellent options, all of which are located a short drive outside of Franklin.
