CAMBRIDGEPORT
Cambridge, MA
THE PORT
The neighborhood of Campbridgeport is home to a diverse blend of around 10,000 residents. Massachusetts Institute of Technology, River Street and Charles River bound Cambridgeport.
The main commercial center is the Central Square. People here enjoy proximity to amenities like shopping, public transportation and the universities, as well as Brookline and Boston, all amidst a pleasant leafy neighborhood with historical Victorian homes. While most homes in Cambridgeport are of the older restored kind, new development has turned former industrial buildings into hip loft-style condos. Once upon a time, Cambridgeport was an agricultural area in the 18th century, but after the opening of West Boston Bridge (now called Longfellow and Salt & Pepper Bridge), in 1739, streets and houses were built and a neighborhood started to take form. The residential development happened fast, and by World War I nearly all land was covered by construction. The area features lots of single-family homes as well as triple-deckers and two-family houses, since demand became so high and the need for more accommodation increased. Prices for single-family homes in the popular area are pretty steep, and ranges from $500,000 to $1,200,000. Most properties on the lower end are fixer-uppers, and can often be a good investment for the renovation savvy. Recreation and parks abound with the coveted Charles River, the Magazine Beach and Dana Park, as well as a half dozen others. The Charles River Reservation offers swimming contests, fishing opportunities and ample space for leisurely recreation like sunbathing, barbecuing and biking!
