West Somerville Real Estate

West Somerville is a densely populated neighborhood in Somerville located east of Cambridge and just five miles from Downtown Boston. The area is also sometimes referred to as “Davis Square” because it houses the bustling square as well as the surrounding neighborhood. The district is one of the most sought after communities in Greater Boston with its convenience to public transit, Tufts University and eminent walkability. The Square is known for its restaurants and nightlife as well as the beloved Somerville Theater. West Somerville housing stock is dominated by triple-deckers, duplexes and historic Victorians. Many of these homes have been sub-divided into condo units with extensive renovations in the kitchens and bathrooms to meet the market demand for new housing as well as modern conveniences.  Read more about West Somerville real estate.

More About West Somerville Real Estate

 West Somerville Location

West Somerville borders Lexington Avenue and the Ball Square neighborhood to the north and northeast; the Spring Hill neighborhood to the east; Porter Square to the south; and the city of Cambridge to the east. The Davis Square intersection marks the meeting point of several streets, including Holland Street, Dover Street, Elm Street, Day Street, and Highland and College Avenues. The Davis Square MBTA Station on the Red Line serves the neighborhood and connects to several MBTA buses going into Cambridge and other adjoining towns.

West Somerville History

West Somerville includes much of the original land on which the Tufts University was founded although today Tufts is officially located in nearby Medford. Somerville overall blossomed during the Industrial Revolution, welcoming many immigrants from Ireland, Italy, and Portugal. The area declined after WWII, but surged in popularity once neighboring Cambridge abolished rent control. The extension of the Red Line into Davis Square further transformed the neighborhood. New residents helped create a thriving community known for its ethnic restaurants and quirky charm as well as its explosive real estate market.
