Welcome to the Neighborhood

Residents of Brucewood Homes have access to retail and restaurants, as well as recreational amenities right in their own neighborhood. Eateries, pharmacies and childcare facilities, as well as baseball fields, running tracks, and playgrounds, are all steps away. 

Brucewood’s central location provides access to multiple amenities and transportation options. The homes have direct street access to the neighboring Hynes Field Park, where sporting events and activities are frequently held. For outdoor nature enthusiasts, one can walk to both Allandale Woods and the Arnold Arboretum park system within minutes. Centre Street, in downtown West Roxbury, is only a 15-minute walk away, and is lined with boutiques, cafes, and restaurants. Three commuter rail stations are located less than one mile away. Situated right off of the VFW Parkway, major transportation routes, including Route 1 and Route 95, are conveniently close. 

Located southwest of downtown Roxbury, West Roxbury is a neighborhood of Boston, bordered by the suburbs of Brookline, Newton and Dedham. Rapidly becoming a popular place to reside, West Roxbury provides the best of both worlds—a quiet, community-oriented neighborhood with easy access to big-city life.
