I am a New Englander and grew up in central MA and a suburb of Boston. For twenty years, I was a public school teacher and principal in Boston Public Schools. Currently, I am finishing a PhD program in Education Anthropology with plans to return to public education.
Initially, I bought this home because it reminded me of my great aunt's and uncle's farmhouse in Southern Vermont, where my family would visit in the summer. The house is quaint and has great warmth and character. Over the years that I have owned the house, I have totally renovated it, adding a new kitchen, an additional full bath and a great room with a vaulted ceiling. I have landscaped the yard with local plants and old cobblestones recycled from Boston's streets. While the house is modernized, it retains its unique character and charm.
Wonderful, gated private yard, off street parking, great neighbors and neighborhood. Jamaica Plain is one of Boston's most diverse neighborhoods and has a vibrant art and cafe culture within walking distance of the house.
Jamaica Plain ('JP') is a section of Boston rich in history, the arts, cafes, restaurants and local shops. In the 19th century, JP was home to several beer breweries. Sam Adams beer got its start in the brewery district in JP and still maintains a small brewery there. Visit historic Doyle's Cafe and enjoy a 'Sam' beer sitting in the bar where many political figures, including the Kennedy's discussed politics. Ride your bicycle through the Emerald Necklace and Arnold Arboretum and enjoy Boston's 'greenest neighborhood.' Play a round of golf on one of Boston's best public golf courses in Franklin Park. During summers, rent a boat and sail across picturesque Jamaica Pond. Tour the quaint shops in the center of town and relax, enjoying lunch and coffee at one of the many eateries. Or take the Orange line 'T' train or bus (Boston's public transit) and be in downtown Boston within minutes. No matter what you choose to do, your vacation in Jamaica Plain will be memorable!
