What Renters Like and Dislike

What Renters Like and Dislike About Winter Hill Somerville

It's really close to Porter Square, Davis Square, and Harvard Square, which means that public transit is super accessible and there's a ton of restaurants, cafes, grocery stores, etc. within a 20-30 minute walk.

I like visiting our neighbors and family and friends that my family has established throughout the years. We love to go to our paternal family's house and hangout their in the back yard.

can walk to subway easily can walk to many restaurants/stores/bars/ activities easily easy access to highway and downtown

We are near a great outside mall. We have restaurants, post office, coffee shops, bakeries, grocery stores, outlet stores, police and fire stations.
