Moving to Jamaica Plain (MA): The Ultimate Guide
The Stonybrook neighborhood is a lovely collection of tree-lined streets featuring the Minton Stable Community Garden and the Rossmore-Stedman Playground (formerly, and still, known as the “tot lot”) and surrounded by Franklin Park, Forest Hills Cemetery, Soutwest Corridor Park, and the Arnold Arboretum.
Franklin Park – Boston’s Largest Open Space and the Crowning Jewel of Frederick Law Olmsted’s Emerald Necklace
Forest Hills Cemetery – Boston’s First public Park
Southwest Corridor Park – 4.1 mile, linear park stretching from the Back Bay to Forest Hills, linking South End, Back Bay, Roxbury and Jamaica Plain with a street-level, greenway and recreational facilities.

Amongst the grass, trees, and Victorian homes are some of the newest buildings in Jamaica Plain, bringing a fresh vibrancy to the neighborhood.
With the Casey Arborway Project completion (ie, they took down the overpass and repaved all of the streets), Forest Hills and Stonybrook are sparkling blocks of brand new developments of housing, retail, and parks.
Clay Harper documented this process with an outstanding blog.
The North Plaza of the Forest Hills Station (northern head house) sits on the bike and pedestrian paths that now connect the Arboretum and Franklin Park.
With all of this outside your door, don’t forget how lovely and peaceful this home is. The neighborhood streets are still quiet enclaves of neat, Victorian homes. Come home to birds chirping, leaves rustling in the trees, and flowers blooming.
Inside, sunlight bathes the rooms in light with a backdrop of leafy trees. There is plenty of room for both cozy spaces and entertaining with a large living room, spacious dining room, and oversized eat-in kitchen.
The kitchen has a walk-in pantry, countertops lining two walls, and ample space for a kitchen table.
The dining room can hold a lovely dining table for several guests, or expand the table into the living room for those holiday gatherings. There will still be room for a sideboard.
For repose, two quiet bedrooms with lovely windows.
To celebrate the day’s end or launch the morning with coffee? Private perches on both front and rear decks.
Ample closets, basement storage, and basement laundry. One off-street parking.
