Why Live in Boston's Fort Hill/Roxbury area? 

Located close to downtown with direct access on the Orange Line from Roxbury Crossing or Jackson Square, Fort Hill is a picturesque enclave of Victorian style homes and brick brownstones arranged around the historic Fort Hill monument at the top of the hill. Fort Hill has an abundance of green space integrated into its urban landscape and is one of Boston’s rapidly emerging neighborhoods. Its close proximity to the Longwood Medical Center and BU Medical Center make it a favorite neighborhood for medical residents and professionals in search of a smaller community with renovated historic brownstones and great values. Fort Hill residents enjoy easy access to the Financial District and the restaurants and entertainment options of Jamaica Plain, the South End and all points in between.

Emerging Fort Hill/Roxbury Real Estate Trends:

With the development of surrounding Jamaica Plain, Mission Hill and the South End, Fort Hill is one of the last undiscovered historical neighborhoods.  Because of its close proximity to downtown, and all around accessibility due to the Jackson Square and Roxbury Crossing Orange line, Fort Hill’s historic housing stock is going through a major transformation.  Young families, single students and medical professionals from the surrounding medical centers are migrating to Fort Hill in search of newly-rehabbed condos with plenty of space at an affordable price.
