Cambridge Highlands Real Estate

Cambridge Highlands, also known as “Area 12,” is a largely commercial Cambridge neighborhood interspersed with small pockets of residential areas. The neighborhood is perhaps best known for the Fresh Pond Mall with its eateries and Whole Foods Market located along the Alewife Brook Parkway. Concord Avenue runs from east to west. The residential core of the neighborhood lies at its western end bordering Belmont and features a mix of Victorian and Dutch Colonials homes set back on quiet, leafy streets. Since 2010, builders have been slowly developing more of the eastern part of the town into residential space. New condos are available on Wheeler Street while 70 Fawcett Street is the site of a luxury apartment building. Blair Pond on the western edge, is part of the Alewife Brook Reservation, and offers residents a number of recreational opportunities including scenic walks, birding, and fishing.  Read more about Cambridge Highlands real estate.
