Savin Hill is one of the most sought after addresses in Dorchester, combining close proximity to downtown Boston with the feel of a small hillside neighborhood. The area is sprinkled with stately Victorian homes designed to take advantage of water views. Savin Hill is considered one of Boston’s Beach neighborhoods, with Savin Hill Beach one of three public beaches comprising the Dorchester Shores Reservation. Savin Hill’s waterfront is referenced as “Over-the-bridge” and is separated from the rest of Dorchester by Route 93 and from Columbia Point by Morrissey Boulevard. The waterfront area encompasses Savin Hill Beach, Malibu Beach and the venerable Savin Hill Yacht Club founded in 1875. Despite its picturesque surroundings, Savin Hill Beach was previously a salt marsh and similar to many Boston neighborhoods, was created from dredged sand from the Dorchester Bay in 1908. The inland section of Savin Hill runs from Pleasant Street to I-93 next to Upham’s Corner and the Polish Triangle.
