I love that you can walk to buy anything you need in one direction (including great coffee) and if I head the other direction I can walk around Jamacia Pond designed by Olmstead or be in 365 acres of the Arnold Arboretum.
OR I can jump on a train and be downtown Boston.
The house is a ten minute walk to the Orange Line, Green Street T station into Back Bay/Newbury Street and downtown. Only a three minute walk to the 39 bus to Longwood Medical area, Copley Square and museums. Near the Green Street T stop is the South West Corridor Bike Path you can ride straight into downtown. Street parking is always available or you can use our visitor parking slots if you wish. If you need a car, there are many nearby Zipcar locations.
