JAMAICA PLAIN - 2BDR utilities incl, de-leaded/Child-friendly, fully furnished

Walk or bus at the end of the street to Longwood (13mins), Northeastern, Mass Art, Harvard Medical or take a stroll around Jamaica Pond, the Arnold Arboretum or Franklin Park - all 5 minutes walk away as we're in the heart of Boston's Emerald Necklace parklands. Dine at Jamaica Plain's wonderful variety of cafes, restaurants and pubs close by or maybe just kick back on your private back deck and savour a bird's eye view of our landscaped, tree-filled garden! Minutes safe walking to Green St T station (Orange Line) along the SW corridor park (ideal for bikes), my beautiful, sunny triple-decker apartment offers all the pleasures of inner urban living along with the peace and tranquillity of the countryside.

The 907 square foot apartment features bay windows, polished hardwood floors, front and rear deck, air-conditioning AND it's certified lead-free. That means that unlike most other rentals in Boston, it's child-safe in that neither you nor your child will lose IQ points by exposing yourself to neurotoxic lead, very common in homes built here before WWII.

Free, easy on-street parking (no permit), 5mins walk to Curtis Hall Community Centre (low cost pool, gym, classes) & Boston Public Library, plenty of basement storage space for furniture etc.

Groceries (walking) - Happy (5minutes), Wholefoods (20m), StopNShop (30m).

No smokers or pets please.

My husband and I stayed in Julia's apartment for 4 months on sabbatical this Fall and highly recommend it. It is sunny, bright and in a fantastic location -- one can walk to Jamaica Pond, the Harvard Arboretum or Franklin park very easily, which we did virtually every day. It's also a 5 minute walk from Center street, which has a great independent bookstore, restaurants, a health food store, library, community center, and other sweet (and independent) stores. The apartment had virtually everything we needed and street parking in front of the house was easily available. The flat is the third floor and feels like a wonderful, quiet hideaway. Julia is responsible and organized, and dealt with the two small issue that arise very quickly. We hope to go back and stay here ourselves someday! Excellent Rachel Schurman 12/30/2020 7:43:00 AM
Julia and Julia’s apartment are incredible. My wife and I stayed in her apartment after grad school and before moving back to Europe. The apartment is spacious, full of natural light, quiet, and located at the very heart of the wonderful Boston neighborhood of Jamaica Plain. The hardwood floors and tasteful furniture make it very nice and cozy. Inside you will find everything you need: a fully furnished kitchen, a super comfy couch, a large dining table, a restroom with a window, 2 spacious bedrooms and plenty of storage space. Even the back porch is furnished so you can enjoy the nice weather and relax overlooking the green backyard. And in winter the apartment is nice and warm.

The location is very good for reaching public transportation and the neighborhood local shops. It is close to the subway station, bus #39, and all the services you could ever want for the perfect Boston experience, including a cupcake shop and a community swimming pool! The only downside is that the big grocery shops are approx. 20 min on foot, but if you get a bike everything becomes really close. Or you can always buy local in the small shops around the corner or use a grocery home delivery service.

Julia was always very easy to reach and always kind and responsive. She is a brilliant mind with a big heart. We highly appreciated that she had de-leaded the apartment to be able to accommodate everyone, even families with kids.

We couldn’t say but good things about this place, and we’ll for sure contact Julia again if in need of accommodation in Boston.
