Brookline features a mix of urban and suburban living, upscale shops, restaurants, recreational parks, highly rated public and private schools, academic institutions and some of the world’s finest medical facilities. It has an eclectic population, as well an array of residential options — condos, apartments, multi-family homes and single-family homes on multi-acre sprawling lots, and many different styles that include Victorians and brownstones. Brookline is a town of neighborhoods, each with its distinct character, with recreational parks and green spaces. Major retail areas, including Coolidge Corner (with Trader Joe’s), Brookline Village, Washington Square and Cleveland Circle as well as nearby Chestnut Hill add convenience. And, with public transportation into Boston quick and easy, Brookline is an especially desirable place to live.
