Situated just west of Boston, Brookline offers the best of city living and suburban convenience. The town boasts two primary retail centers in Brookline Village and Coolidge Corner with wide variety of fine dining, shopping and entertainment options. The housing landscape ranges from mid-sized multi-family housing to luxury high-rise condos to sprawling golf course estates.
Brookline is also home to the Longwood Medical Area (LMA), a concentrated community of healthcare and academic institutions. This collection of over 23 hospitals including Boston Children’s Brigham & Women’s and Dana Farber, has earned a reputation as one of the most prestigious medical, research and education epicenters in the world.
With parks tucked in unexpected corners of the neighborhood, residents, pets and children enjoy the outdoor spaces, especially during the Summer months. Summers bring playgoers and moviegoers to Coolidge Corner’s historic theatre and movies on the lawn sprawl across the local schools’ backyards. Brookline is a neighborhood teeming with restaurants, community events, schools and boutiques. Located along the Boston Marathon route, this neighborhood provides ideal viewing as runners descend Beacon Street into the final stretch of the race to Boylston Street.
Along Beacon Street in Brookline sits an abundance of brownstone residences home to families and young professionals. Tucked just behind those buildings are spacious, historic homes and estates home to many of Boston’s local celebrities. With easy access to the Green Line’s B, C and D trains along with several buses, Brookline allows for quick commutes into the city, while providing a tranquil escape from the hustle and bustle of Boston’s Downtown hub.
