EXPLORE: Living in Brookline, Massachusetts

Brookline SS Pierce Building

Living in Brookline, Massachusetts

If Brookline, MA is on your radar as a potential place to live then it is clear how much it has to offer for a quality lifestyle. In fact, a report conducted last year by “Niche” ranked Brookline as the best suburban community in the entire country based on livability. The high grade was based on things including safety, weather, schools, access to activities, jobs, transportation and housing.

The charming town of Brookline is hard to beat with its amenities, character and close proximity to Boston. From popular villages with great restaurants and shopping to grand homes in the shadow of The Country Club Brookline makes for a great place to live. The Country Club is one of the oldest and most prestigious country clubs in the United States. It holds an important place in golf history, as it is one of the five charter clubs that founded the United States Golf Association, and has hosted numerous USGA tournaments including the 1913 U.S. Open won by then-unknown Francis Ouimet. Today, the club has nearly 1300 members.*

Here is a collection of notable facts about the town of Brookline.

Historic Districts

rose garden park brookline (1)

Brookline has seven historic districts throughout the town. Preserved by the Brookline Preservation Commission, any design changes to historic structures requires approval by the group. Historic homes are peppered throughout Brookline’s diverse inventory of housing stock. The great mix includes apartments, condos, single-family homes and attached homes offering something for everyone. Take advantage of one of the many walking tours around these districts to admire the beautiful real estate.

The Real Estate

002-Front_View_Twilight-2807575-medium

Due to the high ranks and quality of life in Brookline, it does come at a premium cost. According to Trengraphix Data pulled from MLSPIN, the town’s single family and condo prices have increased over 17% when compared to the same quarter last year (Mar-May 2016 vs. Mar-May 2015).

The walk-ability and public transportation options are also a large value to the real estate in the area. Namely Coolidge Corner, Brookline Village, Washington Square, Fisher Hill and Cleveland Circle are among the sought after areas with their close proximity to buses and the MBTA Green Line.

EntertainmentMarquis at CC. Theatre_SM

There are many things to do all over Brookline, but according to Trip Advisor, visiting the Coolidge Corner Theater is one of the top things to do. Originally built as a church in 1906, it was later repurposed as a theater in 1933 and continues to operate today. It is a great place to catch a current film or even one of the older films being featured from time to time.

Before you settle in at the movies, be sure to take advantage of many of the great eateries that are located in Coolidge Corner. Grab an authentic crepe at the Paris Creperie or a slice of pizza from Otto Pizza. Many shops that line the street offer great window shopping in between.

Lifestyle for Children

There is no shortage of great schools for kids in Brookline. In fact, all of Brookline’s schools rank very high according to the “Great Schools” rating scale. In particular, Lawrence School and Michael Driscoll School both rank 10 out of 10 on the scale.

When the kids are not in class, take them over to the Larz Anderson Park and admire the classic cars at one of their infamous lawn events. The Brookline Public Library and Allandale Farm both offer additional programs for children to take part in.

Popular Attractions

Among the popular attractions in Brookline is the John F. Kennedy birthplace where you can take a guided tour of the home where he was born. If history is your passion then visit the Frederick Law Olmsted National Historic Site and view the office and walk the grounds.
