A “country estate” atmosphere, with a convenient location - when you look around at Dover real estate, you see open fields and pastures, horses, over 200 miles of bridle trails, and old stone wall. Yet, Dover is only 15 miles southwest of downtown Boston and just a few minutes to downtown Needham or Wellesley for errands. Many of the houses for sale in Dover have large yards with zoning at a minimum of an acre and often far more. There are historic homes, colonials, and quite a bit of new construction. It has one of the best public school systems in the Boston area. The high school (shared with Sherborn) was ranked #2 by Boston Magazine in 2009.
