Resistant as they once might have been, as some millennial age, they may stop idealizing city life and start desiring bigger homes and yards at a lower price — especially if they have kids. A recent realtor.com study uncovered the best suburbs for that buyer segment, and North Chelmsford landed in the top 10 in the United States. Not only is the village less than 30 miles from Boston, it is rich with history and has a relatively low median home price of $294,275.
