Even in a town whose reputation is built on seclusion and unspoiled nature, the lushness of Skyfarm’s wooded hills and flora stand out. Its narrow, curving roads wind through a topography that makes large scale residential development difficult, which is why the neighborhood’s homes are generally newer than those in surrounding neighborhoods. Outside of a few pre-war residences, Skyfarm real estate dates back no further than the 1970s.
Skyfarm homes are priced at the middle- to upper end of the Hillsborough market. Though parts of Skyfarm Drive can yield smaller homes selling at or around $3 million, most Skyfarm homes for sale – those with 4,000 square feet and up — are priced between $4 and $7 million. As with all Hillsborough neighborhoods – especially those located in the town’s hilly western quadrant – Skyfarm is of late dotted with new construction, as homebuyers raze more modest original homes and replace them with larger residences. The result is a neighborhood whose average price per square-foot hovers at the low end ($1,009 in 2017) of the Hillsborough market, while the overall median ($4.61) sits squarely at the high end.
