Boston studio description

Sophisticated garden apartment in a lovely home near the center of wonderful JP, as Jamaica Plain is called! Surrounded by beautiful land and great neighbors. On a quiet residential dead-end street just one block from Jamaica Pond. This pretty apartment has a bed-sitting room, a full kitchen and bath, a separate dining room, large entrance hall, and separate entry. It is fully furnished and suitable for one person or a couple. Immaculate and fun! Half a block from the 39 bus line and blocks from two subway stops [Green Street less than 3/4 mile; Stony Brook about a mile - but lovely and you don't notice it unless there's a blizzard]. 10 minutes from some of the best hospitals and museums in the world, as well as downtown Boston. Red Sox, the ocean, and the Zoo very close by. And colleges and universities abound! Bike or jog the Emerald Necklace, sail or row in Jamaica Pond, hike in the many nearby natural areas, and enjoy the rich history and active art and music scene this part of Boston enjoys. We are rated the best area in which to live! On-street free parking.

                      Car: Not Necessary

                      Jamaica Plain is a self contained town within the city of Boston. It is surrounded by the amazing and lovely Emerald Necklace, a linked series of parks that includes ponds, an arboretum, a zoo, a golf course, many tennis courts, and so on. JP is well-loved by those who live here and visitors for its richness: diversity, food, accessibility, the scene, architecture, green space, biking, dogs, music. It's the chic place to live in the region.

                       

                      Manager info

                      Year Purchased: 1998

                      About: Travellers and art lovers, we grew up in the country but love the city!

                      Why Boston:
                      Trained as an architect, my husband wanted a bungalow! This is a glorified one with three floors. Our last house was an 1806 beauty on the Narragansett - my choice - so it was his turn.

                      The Unique Benefits at this Studio:
                      We love feeling as though the city is very, very far away - even though by car it is 5 or 10 minutes. This area is extraordinary for its parks and amenities, its rich history and richer cultural assets, including people, and the 5 minute drive or quick public transportation to downtown Boston. We have lovely, big garden, as do all of our neighbors. Accessing highways is quick and simple; there is tons of shopping, of course; and an amazingly rich music, art, theater and dance scene. Beaches on the bays or the ocean are quite close and we often go to Maine, New Hampshire, the Cape and Rhode Island just to hang out, do chores, and see friends and family.
