Location

A Neighborhood Apart in the Heart of it All

McNamara House is located in a safe, residential neighborhood that’s both inclusive and connected to everything. For life’s essentials, a supermarket and pharmacy are just beyond your doorstep, with other shops and services within easy reach.

You can head down to the nearby Charles River to enjoy the bike paths, splash in the Artesani Playground wading pool, or or enjoy live entertainment during the warmer months at the Herter Park Ampitheater. Pop over to the Allston branch of the Boston Public Library. Or meet a friend for lunch at one of several area restaurants.

If you want to explore beyond your neighborhood, it couldn’t be easier. A five-minute walk takes you to the new Boston Landing MBTA Commuter Rail Station, enabling you to be in downtown Boston in a matter of minutes. And if Cambridge or Somerville is your destination, you’re just blocks away from the MBTA bus line.

At the end of your journey you’ll look forward to returning to the quiet comfort of your apartment or the spirited social interaction of the McNamara House community room.

“I love the location – right next to the market and close to the river.”
