Our 1910 home in Roslindale features a light-filled, renovated kitchen and is great for a family of four or five. It has 3 bedrooms and 2 full bathrooms, plus a sunny breakfast nook off the kitchen and lots of storage space. The location on Peters Hill has it all: within a five-minute walk you’ll find the Arnold Arboretum, Fallon Field/Playground, and Roslindale Square with a grocery store, restaurants, public transportation and a library. Our yard is a grassy, fenced haven with a patio, grills, hammock, and beds of perennials. One bedroom can also serve as a study.

Our place is located a 15-minute drive from Boston College, a 20-minute drive from Boston University, and a 20-minute drive to Longwood Medical Area. Additionally, we are just a 3-minute walk to the Roslindale Village Commuter Rail Stop, which is only a 10-minute train ride to Longwood and 20 minutes to South Station. Our location also allows easy access to many bus lines which can be picked up in Roslindale Square (5-minute walk) and take you directly to the Forest Hills station along the Orange Line. We are also bike accessible with easy and beautiful bike routes through the arboretum and quick access to bike lanes along Centre Street and Washington Street, which take you to the Southwest Corridor bike trail.
