Apartments in Dorchester, Massachusetts
For those who love urban living, The Carruth offers proximity to the center of Boston arts and entertainment along with opportunities for home ownership or rental housing.
Completed in 2008, the building sits in the heart of historic Peabody Square. It is situated just 50 yards across from the Ashmont MBTA Station, which itself has been totally renovated and offers access to the Red Line, the Mattapan trolley and many bus lines.
The Carruth condominium residents enjoy stainless steel appliances in their kitchens, granite countertops, bamboo flooring throughout, floor-to-ceiling windows, and beautiful views from the windows and (some) balconies on this superbly designed building.
Residents of the affordable apartments enjoy wall-to-wall carpeting, white appliances, dishwashers, microwaves, air-conditioning and heat included in the rent.
Residents can walk to a wide variety of restaurants and shops in this revitalized area of the city. In fact, all they have to do is walk downstairs to the first floor to enjoy one of the best new restaurants in the city, Tavolo Ristorante, which also offers a popular bar.
Other retail shops on the first floor include: Eastern Bank; The Real Estate Group; Back to Life, a wellness and chiropractic center; The Bottom Line, a non-profit college prep center for inner city youth; and Flat Black Coffee, a very well-regarded café.
Not far away is the Ashmont Grill, another very popular restaurant and night spot.
