Community and Real Estate Information

South Medford is the southernmost portion of Medford, Massachusetts, and is primarily a suburban neighborhood. The area is separated from the rest of the city by the Mystic River and is largely surrounded by Somerville suburbs. The area is bordered on the west by Tufts University, on the south by Powder House Square and Magoun Square, and on the southeast by Winter Hill. Various commercial facilities, including auto dealerships, shops, restaurants, and other local companies, line the Mystic Avenue section of the area. Public parks abound throughout the city, providing wonderful outdoor areas for you and your family to enjoy. Residents also have easy access to the area's public schools.


South Medford real estate is fairly diversified, with a good mix of single-family and multi-family residential properties. The neighborhood's homes are built in the traditional Colonial Revival and New England architectural styles that are common in the area. Small front porches, brightly colored paint on wood plank walls, steepled roofs, and big framed windows characterize these dwellings. On the ground level, you'll generally find an open floor plan with a living room, dining room, and eat-in kitchen. A basement level for utilities is generally included, as well as a side-entry driveway with plenty of parking for occupants. Condoplexes in the neighborhood range in size from two to four units with 900 to 1,400 square feet of living space. Single-family houses are usually larger, with floor areas ranging from 2,000 to 4,000 square feet. The neighborhood's home values range from $700,000 to $1.5 million.

Important Considerations

Around the school year, and especially during graduation weekend, the streets surrounding Tufts University may be rather congested. Because of its closeness to the Mystic Valley Parkway and other major thoroughfares, it is one of the busiest residential alternatives.
