This week, we have a new segment in which we talk about the different neighborhoods around Jamaica Plain. What better way to start than with our resident Moss Hill expert, Bunny Cecchetto. Bunny has previously appeared on Stay Focused and now she's back sharing her Moss Hill wisdom with us.



TRANSCRIPT

RANDAL: 

All right! Welcome back to Stay Focused, our weekly video blog. Today, we are here with Bunny Cecchetto to chat a little bit about a neighborhood close-up on Moss Hill. Bunny really does specialize in Moss Hill neighborhood. Bunny, tell us a little bit about what makes that neighborhood special and a little bit about it.

BUNNY:

Well, it's special to me because I live there.

RANDAL:

Fair enough.

BUNNY:

I built my house there in 2000 and it's a very special community. There's a very little turnover as we have just recently looked at.  I think only 2.5% of the homes sell every year. This year there were 18 sales out of what we assume about 700 single-family homes and the neighborhood is located between Allandale Street and it goes down to Jamaica Pond. People call it Moss Hill but the real name is Jamaica Hills and it's two hills. It's Green Hill which is by Allandale and then there's a footpath that goes over to Moss Hill that's on the pond side.

RANDAL:

Okay, so the Green Hill is a little bit closer to Faulkner Hospital? 

BUNNY:

Exactly.

RANDAL:

Okay. And you also have a great view there, just overlooking the Arnold Arboretum.

BUNNY:

It's absolutely beautiful. The way that the sun sets and it's surrounded by nonprofit land. You have the Arboretum across Centre Street and you have Allandale Farm, you have the Daughters of St. Paul, Dexter School of Southfield. It's a little enclave that's built into the hillside.

RANDAL:

You know, I never even thought about that. You're completely surrounded by green space all the way around.

RANDAL:

Yes.

RANDAL:

Moss Hills.

BUNNY: 

Moss Hills, yes.

RANDAL:

And also Moss Hill is only made up of single-family houses?

BUNNY: 

Yes. It's the only neighborhood in Jamaica Plain that is zoned single-family.

RANDAL:

Single-family houses. What do the sale prices look like there?

BUNNY:

Sales prices are an average of $922,000.

RANDAL:

And what would be a good place for people to find you, Bunny?

BUNNY:

RANDAL:

Okay, right on the corner of South and Sedgwick Street in Jamaica Plain.

BUNNY:

Yep.

RANDAL:
