North Scituate is one of Scituate’s four neighborhood centers, located south of the Cohasset town line off Route 3A. The village provides an eclectic mix of shops, restaurants, and other amenities, and houses the MBTA North Scituate Commuter Rail. Select homes are within walking distance of the train station, making it easy for commuters to get in and out of Boston’s South Station. The reasonable retail and office leases have enticed many residents to live and work in the village center. North Scituate maintains a healthy housing stock of capes, splits and more traditional colonials. This area is one of the few neighborhoods in Scituate that features a limited supply of multi-family homes and condo/townhouse developments like Merrit Woods.
