Piety Corner contains many of Waltham's most historic houses, some dating to the 1700s. Many lots are heavily wooded as the elevation rises toward Prospect Hill Park. Moreover, the neighborhood is very convenient to Route 128 via Totten Pond Road. Beyond its origins as one of Waltham's 'country manor' neighborhoods, there are a variety of housing styles, with Colonials, Victorians and newer, post-war suburban tract homes on lots of varying sizes. Prices vary, but are generally in the $500,000 to $800,000 range.
It is the neighborhood I grew up in, and even today--living in Washington, D.C. for 23 years after graduate school--I treasure the narrow, quiet streets, the nearby woodlands of Prospect Hill Park, and the stately, historic homes.
