Skyline Estate is a neighborhood of homes just east of Lincoln Street in northern Franklin. These homes are mostly located on Daniels Street, Skyline Drive, and Charles Drive. North of Daniels Street, this area has very little through-traffic as well as paved sidewalks on both sides of the road.
There are a variety of different houses in the Skyline Estate Development, many of which are Capes, Colonials, and raised ranches. Most of these homes have 3-5 bedrooms, multiple bathrooms and more than 1,000 square feet of living space as well as a private deck and an attached garage.
This development is just a few miles north of many different popular state forests and parks. Locals can spend a day hiking or biking along a network of nature trails at either Wrentham State Forest, Franklin State Forest, or F. Gilbert Hills State Forest. Skyline Estate is also just a couple miles west of Populatic Pond, a popular place to go fishing or boating. The Charles River, which feeds directly into Populatic Pond, also makes a great place for kayaking, canoeing, and fishing. Golfers can play a round at Bungay Brook Golf Club, New England Country Club, or Heather Hills Country Club, all of which are just a short drive south of Franklin.
The homes at Skyline Estate are directly west of Patriot Place, a large shopping complex with more than 100 stores and restaurants. Patriot Place is also a popular entertainment center as it features a movie theater and Gillette Stadium, the home of the New England Revolution and the New England Patriots. Residents of this development can also drive about fifteen miles north into Natick, Massachusetts, where they can spend the day at one of many shopping centers including the Natick Mall and Shoppers World.
This neighborhood’s central location between I-495, Route 109, Route 115, and Route 140 make it an ideal location for commuters and travelers alike. Franklin also has a designated stop along the MBTA Commuter Rail, which travels to and from South Station in Boston.
