The town of Belmont is nicknamed the town of homes, and there's plenty of homes for the 24,700 residents. There's also plenty of rental properties available that suit anyone's desires. This residential suburb of Boston was founded in 1859 out of sections of neighboring town such as Waltham and Watertown. It was named after the Bellmont estate of town founder John Perkins Cushing. Beaver Brook flows along the western edge of town while Route 2, also known as the Concord Turnpike, makes up the northern border.
Kids go to public schools run by the Belmont Public School District, and U.S. News and World Report magazine has ranked Belmont High as the second best public high school in the commonwealth behind Boston Latin. There are also two private schools that offer a full K-12 education between them. The town is also well connected for commuters with over a dozen MBTA bus lines either serving the area directly or including stops inside the community, and there are also two MBTA rail stations within city limits.
People looking for a place to live will find plenty of options like a one-bedroom and one-bathroom unit being advertised on Frederick Street. This property has beautiful hardwood floors, a spacious kitchen with appliances and a convenient location near an MBTA bus stop. It also has a brand new gas furnace to keep you warm during the colder months, and there's also a washer/dryer on the premises. No dogs are allowed, but cats will be considered.
Another great option is a brand new first floor apartment in a multi-family home on Wiley Road. This larger space has two bedrooms and enough parking space for two cars. The floors have recently been refinished, and the whole space has been freshly painted, so this is a great option for couples or new families.
