The Sherwood neighborhood was built in the 1950's. It is boarded by Lake Cotichuate, Route 9 and Mill Street. The area is know for it's "Sherwood Colonial":
The standard Sherwood Colonial (above) is a 3 Bedroom 1 Bath home with a front to back Living Room, a Galley Kitchen, a Dining Room, Garage and Basement. Peculiar to the Sherwood Colonial is the 3rd bedroom has it's closet outside of the bedroom.
Over the years many of the original Serwood Colonials have been renovated, updated and made larger. Above is an example of a very nice renovation which added considerable square footage and functionality. Renovation of Sherwood Colonials is very common, whether it is a finished basement, additional bathroom, Family Room addition, whatever, because this is a very popular neighborhood. The area is populated mostly by families with children so there is no shortage of kids to play with.
Sherwood is within walking distance of the Brown Elementary School and the Kennedy Middle School. It is also within walking distance of a Temple, Catholic Church and a Protestant Church.
It's location makes it an excellent commuter location. Easy acess to Route 9 and the Mass Pike. For those of you who enjoy walking it is not an unreasonable walk to the West Natick Train Station.
Last but not least is it's proximity to the Natick Collection. The Natick Collection with it's great stores and resturants is only minutes away, you could probably walk but you probably want to drive so you can carry all those purchases.
