CENTRAL STREET: Andover
"It really represents the heartbeat of Andover," Arlene Santangelo said of Central Street. Santangelo, a broker with Keller Williams in Andover, explains that what appeals about Central is that it's so, well, central. It ends in the downtown area, where you'll find shops, restaurants, banks, and churches. Even if you're at the opposite end of the street, though, you're still a 15-minute walk to everything. There's a diverse mix of housing under the shady canopy, from small Capes in the $400,000s to 4,000-square-foot Victorians that go for as much as $2 million restored.
