Welcome to the Award-Winning Boston Suburbs Real Estate Blog
Every week I like to profile a desirable neighborhood in the Boston suburbs. Today I'd like to introduce you to the Bates neighborhood of Wellesley, a suburb just west of Boston.
The delightful Bates neighborhood is filled with charm. Residents enjoy block parties, BBQs, and a short walk to all that Wellesley has to offer, including the recently renovated Bates Elementary School. Its pretty tree-lined streets feature many center entrance colonial homes built between the 1920s and 1950s. Encompassing Shirley Rd, Cleveland Rd, Pilgrim Rd, Earle Rd, Northgate Rd, Brookfield Rd, Wedgwood Rd, Chesterton Rd, Martin Rd, and many others, the Bates neighborhood is home to many families who like the walkability of the area. The neat lots are generally small (around 1/4-acre in size) but usable.

Is it possible to find a home for sale in Wellesley that's not a sky high price? Last week a real estate firm released a report claiming Wellesley was the 7th most expensive housing market in the country (although this was disputed by some who took a closer look at the statistics). Certainly Wellesley is home to many out-of-sight priced homes, including a sprawling estate home for sale in Wellesley's Dana Hall neighborhood in excess of $10M. Homes that most of us could never afford. And right now there are 120 homes for sale in Wellesley in excess of the million dollar mark.
