This lovely Queen Anne Victorian home is situated on historic Wellesley Park near the base of Ashmont Hill in Dorchester. Experience a walk through this remarkably preserved Victorian era "garden suburb", passing by the original gas lights on the way to public transportation (The Red Line's Shawmut Station is a 3 min walk), and the many amenities this neighborhood offers. Red Line T offers easy/fast access to downtown Boston, Back Bay, financial district, Tufts, BU Medical and Mass General.

Joe and Whit own this house in Wellfleet. Cape Cod is our favorite place in the world. We want to rent this place to help pay the bills, but we also want to share it because it's so cute and it makes us sad to have it empty when we aren't there. You may not actually meet us, but…
