Homes for Sale in Putterham, Brookline, MA

Putterham is a tranquil residential neighborhood in the suburban area of Brookline, Massachusets. It is easily accessible since it is south of Skyline Park, west of Buttonwood Village, north of Brook Farm, and east of Oak Hill Park. The peaceful Putterham is located between South Brookline and Chestnut Hill, specifically at Grove Street and West Roxbury Parkway intersection, which creates a small rotary that marks the quiet neighborhood of Putterham. Putterham is also just a stone’s throw away from shopping, restaurants, entertainment, Back Bay, Wegmans, and downtown Boston.

In 1768, Putterham made history when a single room Putterham School was built in Grove Street. It became a historical site since it provided children with education over 200 years ago. In 1966, Putterham School was moved to Larz Anderson Park, where it remains today. Putterham was thought to be named after golfers who put balls across the area’s golf course’s greens. But it may be apocryphal to say that in 1870s-era history, this serene neighborhood’s name comes from an old man who is “puttering about.”
