Community and Real Estate Information

West Medford is the westernmost neighborhood in Medford, Massachusetts, as the name implies. The suburb is the city's biggest district, bounded on the south by the Mystic River, on the east by Mystic Lake, and on the north by the Middlesex Fells Reservation and Winchester. Governors Avenue, which serves as the neighborhood's eastern border, separates it from the Medford Center district. Although the suburb is primarily residential, it does contain a well-established business district centered on the West Medford Train Station. The Medford - Brooks Estate, Oak Grove Cemetery, Medford High School, and Medford Boat Club are among the community's other significant landmarks.


With its finely designed Colonial-style mansions constructed in the early part of the twentieth century, West Medford homes reflect the classical home style prevalent across the Greater Boston Region. This original pattern is used to create a variety of homes, with a large proportion of them being rebuilt as multi-family dwellings and low-density condos. Townhouses, duplexes, and triplexes are other typical property types accessible to purchasers looking for a home in the area.


West Medford real estate starts in the mid $400,000s and may reach $1.4 million. The bigger condo-style apartments give a more spacious living arrangement and rental options, while waterfront properties tend to have a higher price tag. The community's most common housing option, however, is single-family homes with two to four bedrooms and one to three bathrooms. The average size of these homes is 1,100 square feet, with bigger homes reaching 2,500 square feet.
