Hillcrest real estate guide & listings for sale
Hillcrest is excellent for those who prefer quiet areas, as the streets are especially peaceful. Green spaces aren't well-spread out, resulting in them being sometimes challenging to reach from the majority of locations in this part of Cambridge. Despite that, there are a few parks close by for residents to visit.
Cars are a great transportation option in this part of the city. The majority of real estate listings are a rather short car ride from the closest highway, and it is very easy to park. However, Hillcrest is not very transit friendly. Nevertheless, property owners are served by a few bus lines, and bus stops are ordinarily nearby. It is challenging to commute by bicycle in Hillcrest as the cycling infrastructure is fairly poor, and cyclists encounter quite a few slopes. Most houses for sale in this part of Cambridge are located in places that are also not very well-suited for those who travel by foot because very few common errands can be run without the use of a car.
