                          Golf: We are about a 10 minute walk to the George Wright Golf Course. It was designed by Donald Ross in 1938 and is well maintained by the City. It was named Best Municipal Course in MA and 14th best in the US according to Golf Digest. In 2009 it was the MGA ameturer qualifying site.

                          Ski: The Blue Hill Mountains, the highest point in Boston not only offers great hiking trails but also skiing and snow boarding. It is a 15 minute drive to this wonderful area. When we don't have snow in the winter they make it. You can see some of the slopes from our home and see them making the snow.

                           

                          Owner info

                          Year Purchased: 2000

                          About the owner: Retired couple. Husband is an artist who has a home studio and is represented by galleries in Boston, Miami and Maine. Wife is a retired Law School clinical instructor who operates, Family Matters, a mediation practice, focusing on family issues.She is also sole owner of Cyndi Monteiro Designs and features her bags in the local boutiques.. Currently, John and Cyndi are enjoying their home, traveling, reading, working out, cooking and entertaining.

                          Why the Owner Chose Boston:
                          Boston is a city filled with history and culture and features some of the most world renowed hospitals and institutions of higher learning. Our waterfront is busy and beautiful! Boston is often refered to as a 'walkable city' getting you to sites by either foot, train, trolley or subway. The cape and islands are either a short drive, ferry ride or bus ride away. One of our favorites is Martha's vineyard. Maine is an hour away and the outlets in either NH or MA are 45-60 minutes by car. A lot of our visitors like to tour Salem and check out the witch museum and harbor. For the children and adults the Children's Museum, Aquarium and Science Museums are a must!

                          The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
                          You have the opportunity to purchase discount tickets to local area attractions. Just ask Cyndi! We also provide Charlie Cards for your first trip on the bus or train. Just replenish what you use for the next guest to get started.
