Leasing

*One Month Free Rent on Select Apartments* Our interest in the property was piqued when we saw that it had 80 acres of real estate right next to acres of conservations grounds, and was heightened once we saw the stately side-by-side brick townhomes. With hard work and an eye for detail, we've managed to keep the already existing look and feel of the property, while still adapting it to include modern features and conveniences. As an example of one of our upgrades, consider our modern community room which features a spacious relaxation area. To keep the Chestnut Hill, MA apartments outside aesthetic, we've left many of the attractive patios intact, offering views of either the woodlands or courtyards.
