Ashmont Hill, in Dorchester, is an awesome place. There are wonderful single-family homes in the area (and, in nearby Melville Park, too).

The Herald’s Paul Restuccia covers the neighborhood in an article, out today.

“When you hear about Dorchester, it’s usually something negative,� said Dan Larner of the nonprofit St. Mark’s Area Main Streets program, which helps upgrade the local business district. “Yet there’s a lot of good things going on in this neighborhood.�

I couldn’t agree, more. You can get a lot of house for your money, down there, even more house, now that the market has cooled.

If you look in MLS, you will see plenty of homes in the $450,000 – $850,000 range – and these are huge Victorians, in various states of repair (or disrepair).

I had considered moving to the neighborhood, and only decided against it because of the need to be close to downtown Boston, where I spend the majority of time.

You always have the subway, though. I don’t recommend driving, because traffic on Dorchester Ave is always bumper-to-bumper (plus, I hear the road is bumpy).
