Centers And Squares
Welcome to Centers and Squares
As a Cambridge real estate agent, the city squares of Cambridge, Somerville and Medford and the town centers of Arlington, Watertown and Belmont, Massachusetts are my home turf. And as a lifelong New Englander who’s lived within twenty miles of Boston most of my life, I can introduce you to other nearby towns as we search for your new home. If you’re planning to sell your home in Cambridge, MA or nearby you’ll find plenty of info about the home selling process here too. Questions? Send me an email or call me at 617-504-1737.
If you’re a Cambridge real estate buyer you’ll find a good variety of Porter Square condos to choose from. In fact, since Porter Square straddles the Cambridge – Somerville line, you’ll probably want to consider options on the Somerville side of the square as well.
Porter Square is a popular neighborhood in large part because of the Red Line T station here. You’re just one stop from Harvard Square on the subway and it’s a quick ride into Boston. The commuter rail that goes into North Station stops here and heads out to Belmont, Waltham, Concord and Acton in the other direction.
Davis Square is a ten minute walk and the fifteen minute walk to Harvard Square takes you down a stretch of Mass Ave that’s lined with fun shops, restaurants and pubs.
The Porter Square shopping center is a big draw. Here you’ll find a large Star Market (officially now called Shaw’s I guess but forever Star Market to me), an independent bookstore Porter Square Books, a package store, Tag’s hardware and housewares store, Cambridge Naturals, a toy store and more.
What sort of condos can you find in Porter Square? Many Porter Square condos are in converted two and three family houses. There are townhouses nearby on Russell Street, artists’s studios on Porter Road, high end loft style buldings close by, and a number of larger buildings built over the years on Mass Ave and on some of the side streets in the neighborhood.
