Adams Shore Quincy MA Homes For Sale
Adams Shore stands true to its name, offering some of the most beautiful Boston views from its waterfront property. Adams Shore is similar to Merrymount in the nature of its neighborhoods. In location, it's adjacent to Merrymount and extends further toward the ocean. Adams Shore sits at the start of the peninsula connecting to Hough’s Neck and Germantown. Adams Shore has a nautical feel as most homes are situated on the coast facing outwards towards the surrounding bays. Home owners can experience calming sights and sounds of ships sailing by on the ocean. Houses in Adams Shore come from the same time period as Merrymount, between 1940 and 1970. The difference here is that it was first developed as a set of summer vacation homes in the 1890s. As time went on, the area became connected with the Merrymount community and Adams Shore transitioned into year round living.
After the slow change, the neighborhood is now a fully thought out residential neighborhood for those who would like to enjoy coastal living. These homes only improve as the Boston Harbor cleanup is making noticeable differences for the better. Adams Shore gained its name from having been formerly owned by the Adams family, most notably known for presidents John Adams and John Quincy Adams.
