Where We Work: Bellevue Hill, West Roxbury
We work all across Greater Boston to make the real estate dreams of buyers and sellers come true. In this series we’ll be sharing with you the neighborhoods we work in, as well as the micro-neighborhoods within them that each have a unique culture and property appeal.
Just a few miles from bustling downtown Boston, you’ll find the leafy streets and stately homes of West Roxbury’s Bellevue Hill neighborhood. At the turn of the nineteenth century Bostonians referred to this elegant residential area as “Mount Bellevue” for its classical homes and because it’s the highest natural point in the City of Boston and Suffolk County.
Over a century later, Bellevue Hill retains the prestige that drew residents to it years ago. Nestled in the shadow of its historic water tower, the neighborhood is one of the most coveted areas of West Roxbury in which to live. More than any other neighborhood in Boston, this residential community offers the benefits of both town and country. Residents can enjoy the suburban space of their homes and yards and the peace of mind the orderly, sidewalk-lined residential blocks offer.
But homeowners also get the benefit of close proximity to Boston (just 8 miles) and a thriving local downtown less than a mile from the neighborhood. On Centre Street you can dine at the trendy West on Centre restaurant or easily access the West Roxbury Library and the Community Center. Important amenities like Roche Brothers Supermarket and the MBTA’s Commuter Rail (Needham Line) are also within easy reach. After a baseball game at Billings Field and Park families can enjoy a cocktail or ice cream sundae at Corrib Restaurant and walk home in the lush golden hour light that washes the Hill every evening.
Making a home in Greater Boston doesn’t have to mean a choice between suburban space and access to urban amenities. For centuries Bostonians have flocked to West Roxbury for the perfect blend of both — and you can too.
