A Place To Call Home

Reminiscent of a New England farm-house in the midst of 10-acres of beautifully landscaped grounds with a lazy apple orchard on the hillside below, Orchard Hill brings the very best in assisted living to Sudbury and the surrounding area. Orchard Hill presents the perfect atmosphere to enjoy all the comforts of home with family and friends. You will have a secure sense of community while preserving your need for independence and privacy. Whether taking a brisk walk through the meandering paths and gardens, enjoying lively activities with friends or just relaxing in the warm and inviting spaces, you will always have something fun and entertaining to do.

Privately owned and operated, Clifford Hughes built Orchard Hill on his vision of Assisted Living – a small scale, nurturing and comfortable place, filled with fun, laughter, and camaraderie, in other words, a place called home.

The Grounds

At the entrance of Orchard Hill there are a variety of native trees, e.g., large 100ft white pines, elm, white and red oak and cherry trees that blossom to a bright pink in the Spring. The evergreens and tall pines are found around the landscaped walking paths for residents and their friends to take a leisurely walk. The paved pathways around the sitting areas and the 100-tree apple orchard afford accessibility to the 10 plus acre site.

Granite benches flanked by bird feeders line the walking paths for “rest stops” where residents can sit and enjoy conversation and the nature surrounding them.

Orchard Hill is comprised of 35 one bedroom and 10 studio apartments.
