What You Get For Under $700K in Jamaica Plan Right Now

View as Map

This week's open house tour takes place in Jamaica Plain, one of the most picturesque neighborhoods of Boston. With its access to Jamaica Pond and the bucolic landscape of the Arnold Arboretum, JP retains its relationship to nature. In recent years, new development has steadily changed the urban landscape of this neighborhood with the addition of modern townhomes. Fear not, many older buildings have been given new life, such as a converted firehouse and police station-slash-jail. This week's open house tour showcases a variety of sleek architecture and converted churches and schools, updated with modern amenities such as technology integration, Zipcar stations, and top-of-the-line appliances, all for under $700K.
