Situated outside of the state's capital city, Newton contains 13 villages within its borders. This Middlesex County city was first settled in 1630 as part of a stretch of land that later broke up to form Cambridge, and has since grown to a community of 80,000.
During the early days Newton drew wealthy families that constructed grand estates here, and those working in service trades, such as blacksmiths, bakers and merchants, erected smaller houses in town as they built their businesses and raised families.
Newton is still known as "The Garden City" due the orchards, farms, rolling estates and expansive landscaped yards that continue to grace the area today.
Newton has developed into a city with a well-regarded education system and is the home base for Boston College, Lasell College and Mount Ida College. The Newton Free Library is another benefit of residing in this city; it is the biggest and most modern resources of its kind in the state. Another great educational recourse here is the historic Underground Railroad stop at the Jackson Homestead, which is now called the Newton History Museum at the Jackson Homestead.
Newton is also known for being home to Heartbreak Hill. Perhaps the most infamous portion of the Boston Marathon, this challenging slope next to Newton City Hall routinely attracts local and visiting spectators to the race route each year.
Routes 95 and 90 pass through Newton. In addition, citizens can take advantage of one of three methods of public transportation operated under the Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority, with the ability to choose between the bus, commuter or light rail services.
Arborpoint at Woodland Station offers one, two and three bedroom units in a complex that is described as a "luxury transit-oriented apartment community." Encased by woodlands and next to the Brae Burn and Woodland Country Clubs while also adjacent from the Woodland Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority stop, this community balances the need for a convenient commute with the desire for natural beauty. Amenities here include a pool, business and fitness center and and on-site playground, all of which enhance the stylish interiors of these rental spaces. These air conditioned units are outfitted with major appliances like dishwashers, washers and dryers, and furnished apartments are available to those in a hurry to make themselves at home. Management and maintenance staff are on-site for added convenience, and the controlled building access gives residents that much more security.
