More About Brookline Real Estate

Brookline Location

Brookline is located approximately five miles from Boston with the city of Newton lying just west. Brookline borders six of Boston’s neighborhoods, including Brighton, Allston, Fenway-Kenmore, Mission Hill, Jamaica Plain, and West Roxbury. The town is well served by the MBTA Green Line with B, C, and D trains traversing a number of stations going into Boston and Cambridge. While parking is tough in Brookline’s more commercial areas, cars are a viable option in many of the residential neighborhoods.

Brookline Recreation

With four nature sanctuaries and miles of scenic walking and jogging paths, Brookline residents have a number of choices from which to choose to enjoy the outdoors. Select neighborhoods are even designed around their own green park squares. Larz Anderson Park, the biggest park in Brookline, is a family favorite. The park is known for its large expanses of lawn, playing fields and sweeping slopes ideal for flying a kite, watching sunsets, and observing the stars. The hilltop also boasts an outdoor skating rink in season as well as a pond and numerous gardens. The park houses the Museum of Transportation which features a comprehensive collection of old cars on display. Brookline is especially desirable for dog owners — the Green Dog program created 14 dog parks where four-legged friends can frolic off-leash for set periods every day.

Allandale Farm, bordering both Boston and Brookline, is the area’s last working farm and a great source of fresh produce, plants, and seasonal goods. The farm also organizes hayrides and other family-friendly holiday activities.

The Coolidge Corner Theater is another popular activity for residents and visitors. Originally built as a church in 1906, the structure was transformed into an Art Deco movie theater in 1933 and today shows older films as well as serves beer and wine.

Brookline History

Brookline was settled in 1638 as part of Boston but later gained independence as a separate town in 1705. It has long been home to a number of notable citizens. Frederick Law Olmsted, the father of architectural landscaping, made his home in Brookline, and left his mark in Boston with the Emerald Necklace of Parks and parkways. John F. Kennedy, the 35th President of the United States, was born in Brookline. Today his home is preserved as a historic landmark. More recently Brookline has served as a sanctuary for Boston sports figures, including football great, Tom Brady and his family.
