If access to public transportation and a 30 min commute are a top priority, you might want to look in areas that the T travels directly to. Towns such as Brookline, Newton, Melrose, Quincy and Braintree all meet that criteria and additionally have a reputation for family friendly towns. Prices for these towns differ greatly but if you would like additional info please feel free to contact me.
If you are going to be at Tufts Medical Center. I would strongly suggest Brookline, Newton as 2 very good options for you. These towns are known for their schools, are close to Boston and commuter friendly by T.
If I knew more about what you were looking for, I could suggest a couple more options but based on the information you provided these 2 towns fit the best. Hope this helps!
Please see my contact information below, if you have any other questions- I am available by phone or email. Cheers!
Medford would be a great location and is on the T.
Feel free to contact me for details.
