The Skinny: 'Fore we signed off last week we awarded SomerVision, Somerville's 20-year master plan, the Curbed Boston Award for Best Urban Planning Idea of 2012. Why? Because its cornerstone lay (lie? You don't know, either) with transit-oriented development e.g., building housing around existing public transit or bringing said transit to existing housing. This 3-BR, 1-BA single-family in the Bellevue Hill section of West Roxbury touts its working fireplace, large bay window and private yard, but its proximity to the bus and commuter rail. The house was built in 1929. Transit-oriented ain't just for new apartments/condos.
