Beautiful location for history & today: Freedom Trail & Paul Revere House; Red Sox & Celtics; Harvard, MIT, BU, BC & dozens of other colleges and universities. Fall leaf-peeping, Winter lights, Spring blossoms, Summer outdoors. Go to theater, symphony, art galleries, world music. Great museums of art, science, history. Jamaica Plain, city neighborhood with a small town feel, is known for private & public gardens like Arnold Arboretum, for a shopping street with all conveniences and few chains. And such great food! Award winning restaurants like Ten Tables feature locally grown produce; bakeries like Blue Frog make you drool.

 

Owner info

About the owner: I've spent pretty much all my long adult life in Boston, active in local affairs and working with community based nonprofit organizations. As a lover of this city, I am proud and pleased to help others enjoy its many charms.

Why the Owner Chose Boston:
This house, renovated quite completely in 2004, is a wonderful base for me in the lovely Jamaica Plain neighborhood, and is fully accessible for wheelchair users. It is my own residence and I rent the house out when I travel, especially to visit my sons & grandson.
