We wanted to live where we didn't need to use a car for anything, and we wanted to be close to everything we enjoy, from arts and entertainment to ocean going activities. And by Amtrak we can be in Boston is 2 hours.
What we love the most is the feeling of volume in all the rooms, which are large and have 12 foot ceilings with a very cozy, quiet bedroom.
And living so close to all the wonderful restaurants both in our neighborhood and beyond... what can we say about all those wonderful restaurants...yum!
