Melrose is a charming town just north of Boston with many parks and Victorian homes. We are a 10 minute walk from a variety of great restaurants and shops. 10 minutes the other way brings you to a sparkling lake and woods. A short bus ride to the Oak Grove subway stop, and from there, 20 minutes to downtown Boston. The apartment is tastefully renovated with a landscaped backyard, breezy patio, fish pond, parking for your car (one space).
