Forest Hills

Forest Hills is a small residential community in Boston’s Jamaica Plain neighborhood. In a future nod to some of the prominent Boston families who later called Jamaica Plain home, the first European to settle the land in the 1600s was a distant relative of former Governor of Massachusetts William Weld.  At the turn of the century, the community evolved into one of the first streetcar suburbs to meet the needs of the working class Bostonians who labored in the local breweries and mills.  Read more about Forest Hills.

More About Forest Hills

Forest Hills Housing

With few businesses along Hyde Park Avenue, Forest Hills comprises largely single-family homes with a sprinkling of triple deckers, many of which are slowly being converted into contemporary condos. The neighborhood showcases a rich variety of architectural styles, including Arts and Crafts, Cape Cod, Colonial Revival, Tudor, Victorian, and Queen Anne. Many homes have retained such period details as fireplaces, front and rear porches, as well as built-ins and crown moldings. Arts and Crafts-style homes are still found grouped around small parks and common yards to better integrate with the natural landscape of the area.

Forest Hills Location

Today the name “Forest Hills” refers to the area immediately surrounding the train station and residential areas on the East side of Hyde Park Avenue extending to Cummins Highway. Its hilly terrain and curving tree-lined residential areas reflect its transition from rural enclave to bustling transit area.  With its abundance of restaurants, green spaces, and easy access to Downtown Boston, Forest Hills is vibrant option for many buyers.
