4 Homes for sale
Quietly nestled in the Pioneer Valley, slightly to one side of the major highways, Leverett enjoys country living in comfortable proximity to town and city life. Diversity is reflected in Leverett road names. Amherst, Montague and Shutesbury Roads lead to those neighboring towns, Long Plain Road suggests ithe town's flat, agricultural area. Rattlesnake Gutter is a legacy of the last ice age, with glacial ravine and soaring cliffs. Cave Hill, Teawaddle Hill, Juggler Meadow, and January Hills tickle imaginations. Tree-lined stone walls accompany the roads, which climb, dip and curve to expose varied vistas. Wood roads and trails on Brushy Mountain and surrounding hills disclose stone structures, cairns and old walls of unknown dates which housed early inhabitants. The Sawmill River in the north end and Roaring Brook in the eastern part of town were crucial to the 19th century industrial period. Mills and shops proliferated, and Leverett was a self-sufficient community with goods and foods to spare, populated by hard-working farmers, lumbermen and shop hands. Recent years have brought a diversity of skills and lifestyles, as educators are drawn to the 5 college area; craftsmen, artists and musicians find a creative atmosphere; transportation and communication development allows professionals to choose their work base. The architecture of Leverett's homes reflect these changes. Federal and Greek Revival houses are firmly anchored by venerable maples. Later capes and ranch houses and recent large modern homes have joined them to present a pleasing variety of individual dwellings. In a similar manner, religious buildings include not only the traditional Congregational and Baptist churches but a regional Friends Meeting House and a huge white Buddhist Peace Pagoda atop a hillside. Leverett's people are consistently generous in sharing their many skills. Although they radiate in many directions, they come together in elementary school activities, to volunteer in town activities, to meet at the Village Coop and the town dump, with love and pride in their town.
