About the Property
The most beautiful spring ever! And it's graduation, biking and baseball season
Chic and sophisticated garden apartment in a lovely home in the center of JP, as Jamaica Plain is called. Our green space is very green this year - the Emerald Necklace surrounds JP - and this part of Boston has open studios, farmer's markets, lots of great music, numbers of breweries and cafes, the best museums and schools nearby, the city Zoo, and terrific public transportation either by bus or train. We are lucky to be surrounded by beautiful land and great neighbors. On a quiet residential dead-end street just one block from Jamaica Pond, which we can see, and a mile's walk through town to Harvard's Arnold Arboretum. This pretty apartment has a bed-sitting room, a fully equipped 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. No seniors with disabilities, no children, no pets. There are stairs to it and within it. Immaculate and fun! Boston proper, as it's called, is easily reached using the 39 bus line a block away, and or via two nearby subway stops [Green Street less than 3/4 mile; Stony Brook about a mile]. 10 minutes from some of the best schools, hospitals and museums in the world, as well as downtown Boston and sailing on the lovely Charles River. The Bruins, the Patriots, the Red Sox and, of course, the ocean and even the Zoo very close by. Colleges and universities like BU, BC, Northeastern, Harvard, and many others abound so, if you are a student or have college-aged children , it is a great spot for interviewing, visiting and celebrating. Bike, walk or jog the Emerald Necklace, sail, kayak 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 Boston in which to live! On-street free parking. Owners reside on the premises and have a garden to which you have access unless they are in residence. Please note that there is no smoking of any sort and there is a limit of two people [one queen-sized bed].

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 other amenities. JP is well-loved by those who live here and visitors for its richness: diversity, food, accessibility, architecture, green space, biking, dogs, music. It's the chic place to live in the region.
Year Purchased: 1998
About: Travellers and art lovers, we grew up in the country and love the city! We garden lots and volunteer at historic properties in town.
Why Jamaica Plain, Boston, MA, USA:
Trained as an architect, my husband wanted a bungalow! Our last house was an 1806 beauty on the Narragansett Bay in Rhode Island - my choice - so it was his turn and it's perfect!
The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
We love feeling as though the city is very far away - even though by car it is 5 or 10 minutes. Known for its diversity, this area is extraordinary for its parks and amenities, its restaurants and coffee shops, a brewery, the rich history and richer cultural assets, and quick public transportation to downtown Boston and a short drive with good public parking [and expensive parking garages]. We have a 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.
