Bellevue Ave. Makes the Globe’s List of Top Spots to Live!

The Boston Globe did a roundup of the best streets in the Greater Boston area, and Bellevue Ave. in Melrose was one of them:

Melrose is one of those subdued suburbs that tends to be overlooked. But there’s much to recommend it, including its convenient commuter location about 9 miles from Boston, its good schools, its proximity to Middlesex Fells Reservation, and its small-town Main Street, lined with boutiques and restaurants (including worth-a-trip Turner’s Seafood). “It’s very, 9 similar to Arlington,” says Linda Hutchinson of the town’s Brad Hutchinson Real Estate, “but more affordable.” Less than a half-mile long and easily accessible to downtown Melrose, Bellevue Avenue, in the Country Club neighborhood, has “bigger, grander” houses than much of the town, with a price-per-square-foot of around $230 in 2014. Hutchinson calls it “one of the most prestigious streets in the city.”
