Avon Hill Real Estate, Cambridge, MA

House on Walnut Street in Avon Hill, Cambridge, MA.

Avon Hill, broadly speaking, is that neighborhood of Cambridge between Harvard and Porter Square and described by the boundaries of Upland Road to the west, Linnaean Street to the east, Massachusetts Avenue to the north and Raymond Street to the south.

Avon Hill in Cambridge is appealing to many for many different reasons, including the following:

- Easy access to the Red Line subway station and commuter rail line at Porter Square.

- Mix of well-maintained residences on tree-lined streets, many with brick sidewalks. Avon Hill, as the name suggests, is located on a hill. Not steep by San Francisco standards, for sure, but certainly enough of a rise that it is notable. The hustle and bustle of Massachusetts Avenue falls away as one moves up into the heart of Avon Hill.

- Convenient to shops & services on Massachusetts Avenue. Places you will find on the edge of Avon Hill along Massachusetts Avenue include:

University Wine Shop - Popular local wine shop - friendly service.

Nomad - clothing, jewelery, textiles, folk art, books and home furnishings from around the world.

Stone Hearth Pizza - are you hungry? Appealing pizza pies.

Susanna - a unique woman's clothing store
