There’s no better way to describe this nabe than charming. Almost every house has a front porch where homeowners sit out and enjoy a nice afternoon glass of tea. It’s also a great way to catch up with their neighbors. Seems too perfect right? Nope. That’s why This Old House added this nabe to it’s best neighborhoods to live in.
