Small, quaint, quiet; Readfield is the perfect place to grow up. Lakes are abundant and clear, local farms nearby and Augusta is only a 25min drive. There are only a couple places to eat in town but just outside of Readfield you can find more dinning opptions.

Readfield is your typical southern Maine small town, there is no night life, as it is a small town, but I enjoy it.
Quality of housing is good. Very few vacant properties. The vacant properties that are around are not in highly visible areas. Cost of housing is good. Readfield is the best town to reside in for this area, because it contains the high school.
