Middleton is not just a single family market or primarily single family market as many of the more rural feel north shore towns tend to be. There’s quite a mix of condos, I think I have it counted at about 14 or 15 larger condo complexes, I’m sure there’s more but those come to mind.
Along Ferncroft Country Club, you have Ferncroft Tower, Ironwood on the Green, Villas at Ironwood.
One of the newer developments in Middleton has been Blu Haven in downtown Middleton with 45 total units. For more information on the condos and 55+ communities, check out the Middleton page where I have pages for most of them.

Living in Middleton, MA
Middleton is great because it’s somewhat central to the North Shore which means you’re close to many other places. It’s only about a 30 minute drive into Boston (when the Sumner Tunnel isn’t shut down of course). It’s also only 15 minutes to Salem, a little over 20 minutes to Newburyport, and under 30 minutes to Gloucester.
But living in Middleton isn’t good just because of its proximity to other towns! There’s quite a bit to do in town, with a number of restaurants, especially right on 114.
For the golfers out there, Middleton is home to the Ferncroft Country Club; here you’ll also find tennis courts, a pool, & a fitness center. For a round of mini golf, you can hit Golf Country followed by some ice cream from Richardson’s right next door.
As for those that love the outdoors, there’s the Middleton Rail Trail which is about 4.5 miles to the Danvers line. There’s also Middleton Pond which has a loop that you can walk and living in Middleton means you’re also very close to the Harold Parker State Forest.
Good to Know Before Moving to Middleton
Before you move to Middleton, here’s a few things you might like to know!
If you have kids in school or will have kids in school, Middleton is part of the Masconomet Regional School District or Masco for short. Masco also covers Topsfield and Boxford and it has a total of about 1,700 students between both the middle and the high school. Masco is highly rated, but there’s also plenty of private school options nearby as well.
I talked earlier about how Middleton is great for people that need to commute; however, I want to add on that if you have to turn onto 114, especially across from traffic without the help of a light, you may be sitting there for quite a while as this road can get very busy. I speak from experience here, because I’ve probably spent close to 10 minutes waiting before
