The Ladder Streets, as this small alluring neighborhood is called, is one of Needham’s most prestigious areas. First developed in the 1920s, many of the original stately colonials and charming capes still line the streets, however newer construction since the early 2000s also blends right into the neighborhood, primarily in the form of contemporary colonials. The majority of the Ladder Street homes are generously sized and offer 4-5 bedrooms, with the spacious square footage of most houses lying somewhere between 2,000 and a magnificent 4,000 square feet.
Named of the configuration of the streets, the spectacular Ladder Streets neighborhood lies slightly to the east of Needham Center, south of Great Plain Ave. and north of Harris Ave. Commuters in this area looking for quick access to Boston will be thrilled by the proximity of the Hersey MBTA Commuter Rail stop in Needham Center, and by the easy access to I-95 via Highland Ave. Between the small businesses that line Needham Center to the nearby town recreational areas like Perry Park and the tot lot at Defazio Park, prospective residents of the Ladder Streets neighborhood are sure to be thrilled with their new home.
