Jamaica Plain Homes

There's nothing I love more on a Saturday afternoon then taking a stroll through JP and looking at some amazing Jamaica Plain homes.  Oh dear, that's a lie.  I do love something more, (my apologies to the Jamaica Plain homes), I love taking a buyer out on a Sunday afternoon for open houses to help them purchase some Jamaica Plain homes!  Yes, "some" it's a buyers market isn't it??  

JP (as it's known locally) has a spectacular mix of architecture ranging from the late 1700s to today, with a large number of the Jamaica Plain homes having been built in the 1800s.  On a walk around the Jamaica Pond, you'll see styles from Queen Anne Victorians and Mansard roofed Second Empire styled mansions alongside Tudor and Georgian homes.  Back further in the neighborhoods off Centre st, you'll encounter many beautiful triple-decker and Greek revival homes.  In a 20 minute walk you're likely to encounter 10 or more architecturally unique styles of Jamaica Plain homes, yet somehow in this eclectic neighborhood, they all surround each other with perfect harmony.

One of the best features of the Boston (and really the entire Bay State) is the blending of architectural styles within our neighborhoods. JP does a particular great job of integrating beautiful homes in a variety of styles and keeping a sense of cohesion in the neighborhood. This blending of styles is also a perfect metaphor for the people in JP as well! Just like the many different types of architecture within the same area, the same block even, the people of Jamaica Plain represent the terrific diversity of this world all while living in cohesive unity with one another. I love JP!
