Wollaston MA Homes For Sale
Wollaston is a beautiful and convenient neighborhood for the commuter, the professional and families. The Wollaston area of Quincy is one of the first settled and as result became a safe place for Boston professionals to find themselves in. In its early days, the dawn of “the old colony railroad” provided easy access to Wollaston from Boston. This area became and still is the ideal location for those who want to work in the city while living in more quiet and clean conditions. The rail shaped Wollaston into a home for the first versions of the Boston commuter. Many of these citizens built the neighborhood up with large, Victorian style homes to come home to after working in the city.
You’ll find that these homes still stand intact with their original woodwork in the beautiful neighborhood of Wollaston Hill. Since then, the commuting ideal has become the norm and now Wollaston is a highly popular residential neighborhood with vital commercial districts nearby. Now, in place of “the old colony railroad” there is the MBTA red line that keeps the convenience of whisking you away to Boston in a moment’s notice.
Wollaston is coveted for its key location. In a northern part of the neighborhood, Wollaston beach adds a wonderful way to unwind after a long day of work. Here, you can enjoy the ocean, view the city skyline, walk along the water and dine on fresh local seafood. On the other side of Wollaston, you can find the Furnace Brook golf club and unwind with a game. The Wollaston Center area is very walkable with restaurants and sports pubs all within a short distance. You’ll also find the beautiful Eastern Nazarene College campus that now stands where Quincy mansions once were.
In an effort to sustain this ideal neighborhood, the Metropolitan Area Planning Council is currently involved in redevlopment of the Wollaston Center are. They are working on improving walking, biking, and access to Wollaston Center and the red line station. Wollaston will always be a sought after location for its combined transit to Boston and proximity to the beach.
