Center Farm sold to Lynnfield family
Center Farm will soon be under new management. During the meeting of the Board of Selectmen last Monday night, officials designated lifelong Lynnfielders Steven and Kelly Migliero as new owners of the 567 Main St. property.
The board unanimously voted to award the property to the Miglieros for a sale price of $935,000. According to the board, the Miglieros were the only bidders, although numerous people in town had expressed interest in purchasing the property.
Steven and Kelly are the parents of four children in town. Steven was born in town and went to Lynnfield High School. He and his family moved back to Lynnfield around six years ago.
“This is a win-win for Lynnfield,” Board of Selectman Chairman Phil Crawford said, who described the buyers as a “great family.”
“I couldn’t be happier that they want to help fix it up, and restore it back to its architectural significance,” Crawford continued.
According to Crawford, the proposal still needs to go before the Lynnfield Historical Commission for approval. Once that process is completed, the sale can be finalized.
Center Farm is a historic property that was built in 1785. The town purchased it in 2014 for $1.4 million in light of concerns that it would be bought and destroyed by developers. Since it was purchased by the town, it has undergone a lengthy bureaucratic process that included negotiations with the Massachusetts Historical Commission on how to best preserve its features while maintaining its salability.
The Miglieros could not be reached for comment.
