High Street Hill Real Estate

High Street Hill is a residential neighborhood in the southeast section of Brookline, also known as “Pill Hill” for its close proximity to the Longwood Medical Center. Because of its easy commute, High Street Hill is home to many doctors, researchers, and other medical employees. In addition to its convenient location, Leaverett Pond is another of the area’s attractions, providing residents with outdoor space complete with gardens, playground and paths for biking and running. Frederick Law Olmsted, the “father of landscape architecture” was actively involved in designing many of Brookline’s neighborhoods and inspired the landscaping surrounding several historic homes in the area, including the Philbrick Estate. The majority of the homes on High Street Hill were built between 1870 and 1930 on winding roads and set back from the street. Many homes were specifically constructed to take in views of the area’s green spaces as well as the city. The streets are lined with period examples of Victorian, Greek Revival, English Cottage, and Mansard architecture. Many homes have been renovated inside to offer the latest conveniences while preserving the exteriors and period finishes inside.   Read more about High Street Hill real estate.
