Single family home sales throughout the Greater Boston area continue to be brisk, and our neighborhood is no exception. This year many buyers have taken a hard look at their living situations and decided to invest in a single family home that meets their needs for outdoor space, extra space for bedrooms, home offices, and home gyms. And, in neighborhoods like Jamaica Plain
, and West Roxbury
, buyers can enjoy the benefits of single family homeownership and easy access to all that Greater Boston has to offer. This year we successfully marketed and sold numerous single family homes including two on the tree-lined Louders Lane on Jamaica Plain's Moss Hill.

This beautifully updated 1880s Arts and Crafts single family home is a restful retreat that has been updated to provide the best of urban living. The spacious living room with a wood stove, hardwood floors and beamed ceilings is the perfect place to entertain on crisp fall days. The chef's kitchen was recently renovated and includes brand new stainless appliances, custom cabinets, and direct access to a private deck with built-in seating and an Italian style pergola. The welcoming farmer's porch and wrap-around deck create a serene outdoor environment with plenty of space to relax and entertain. The 10,000 square foot lot is an urban gardener's dream with mature trees, lush plantings, and a raised vegetable garden.
As our sellers noted, this fully updated home takes full advantage of the beautiful Moss Hill setting.
"We love cooking meals in the light-filled kitchen, growing vegetables in the garden, and playing with our toddler in the front and back yards. We especially love how this house allows you to fully experience and embrace the beauty of all four seasons"

When the owners of this mid-century ranch lovingly restored the home, they created spaces that were designed for easy living. The open living, dining, and kitchen areas flow into a beautiful great room. The freshly renovated kitchen offers a large island with ample seating, custom cabinetry, quartz counters, and an induction stove. The lower level lends itself to a great playroom, extra guest bedroom, or in-law apartment with a fully renovated bath and shower. A large deck and terraced yard complete the picture. This home was beautifully maintained and has ample parking and an attached garage. There was nothing to do but move in.
About Moss Hill
Once farmland, the development of the neighborhood began in the 1880s with further development occurring in the 1950s. Moss Hill offers an easy commute to downtown by car, MBTA or bike yet it feels like a world away from the hustle and bustle of the city. Residents enjoy easy access to Arnold Arboretum, Jamaica Pond, and the many restaurants and shops on Centre and South Streets.
Homeowners’ desire to live more comfortably combined with historically-low interest rates have created a brisk single family market that has become increasingly competitive with the average number of offers increasing 2 or 3 fold, in some cases.
