Roslindale Real Estate
Roslindale is a diverse community just 15 minutes from downtown Boston. Residents prize the close-knit community that combines rolling hills and abundant green spaces with an urban vibe. In fact, Roslindale’s name comes from the natural hills and dales forming its distinct geography. Roslindale residents range from families with deep roots in the area to hipsters, older retirees and young professionals. Neighborhoods such as Metropolitan Hill and Prospect Hill feature mostly single and two-family homes at relatively affordable prices.
The area nestled between the Arnold Arboretum and Roslindale Village commands the highest prices in the community although increasingly all blocks within walking distance of the Village have seen dramatic increases in price. Roslindale continues to claim some of the highest appreciation of all the Boston neighborhoods. The community plays host to a variety of ethnic food eateries as well as a popular farmers’ market on weekends. Read more about Roslindale real estate.

More About Roslindale Real Estate
Roslindale borders Jamaica Plain, Hyde Park, West Roxbury, and Mattapan. It is served by the Roslindale Village stop on the MBTA Commuter Rail Line and also maintains several bus lines that go to the Forest Hills stop on the Orange Line in nearby Jamaica Plain. The south end of the Arnold Arboretum, the oldest public tree garden in the country, lies in Roslindale, giving residents a green respite from the bustling Village.
Roslindale was originally part of Roxbury, settled in 1630 and later annexed to Boston in 1870. The neighborhood flourished as a commercial hub in the 1950s but later fell into disrepair with the advent of shopping malls and ensuing suburban sprawl. Revitalization efforts on Roslindale’s downtown area started in the 1980s with a reincarnation into what is the vibrant Roslindale Village today.
