Homes for Sale in Thompsonville, Newton, MA

Thompsonville is an affluent suburban neighborhood in Newton, Massachusetts. This dense neighborhood is the smallest of the 13 villages in Middlesex county. It is situated north of Kennard Park, south of Hebrew College, west of The Shops at Chestnut Hill, northeast of Newton Center, and east of Newton Highlands. Although Thompsonville is the least known amongst the 13 villages and does not have a village center like the rest, residents still enjoy easy access to Route 9, shopping malls, schools, dining, and entertainment options. It is just a few minutes away from Chestnut Hill’s restaurants, shops, Wegmans, Coolidge Corner, Back Bay, Downtown Boston, and various outdoor attractions.

The village name Thompsonville was coined from a hermit named Thompson, who inhabited nearby woodlands in 1810. During the mid-century, this wooded area was developed into homes for families moving into the community. By 1867, the community was large enough, and a school was needed. Edward B. Bowen recognized the need for a school in the area. Thus Bowen School was built and remained as the focal point in the Thompsonville neighborhood. Today, Thompsonville is a thriving community offering a comfortable living environment for its residents with easy access to everything you would need for your family.
