As I sit here with my pug on the couch watching the Boston Celtics play the Miami Heat, I decided to share with you my three favorite neighborhoods in Boston. Being a local realtor, I have spent a lot of time in all of these Boston neighborhoods and had the luxury of looking at condos and homes for sale in each of these neighborhoods. So I wanted to share with you a little more about the neighborhoods that I enjoy in Boston. So if you’re looking to buy real estate in Boston, Massachusetts, then you should probably know a little more about three of Boston’s best neighborhoods.
Well, here are my three favorite neighborhoods. They are The North End, Beacon Hill and South End. The North End, also known as Boston’s Little Italy, is a neighborhood packed with restaurants, brick sidewalks, narrow streets, and a rich heritage and culture. The North End consists primarily of condominiums and multi-family apartment buildings. The typical price for a one-bedroom condo is about $400,000, while the typical price for a multi-family is around $1.6 million. The South End is a neighborhood just south of the Back Bay. As a younger neighborhood in Boston, the South End has quickly become one of the most fashionable neighborhoods in Boston. Most of the properties in this neighborhood consist of luxury condominiums in converted brownstones. These condominiums typically retail for as low as 600 per square foot to as high as 800 per square foot, depending on quality condition and location. Many of the condos in South Bend feature hardwood floors, private outdoor space, and small amounts of original detail and character.
Many people are also drawn to this neighborhood because of its dog friendliness, both in many of the condo associations and the access to several of Boston’s best dog parks. Finally, we have Beacon Hill. Beacon Hill is one of Boston’s oldest and most storied neighborhoods, offering residents gas-lit brick streets, many historic homes and buildings, and an unbeatable location that’s close to Boston Common and the waterfront. A notable famous person who resides in Beacon Hill is John Kerry who lives in a section of Beacon Hill known as Lewisburg Square. People looking to buy a condo in Beacon Hill should expect to spend approximately $350,000 for a typical one-bedroom condo and up to $5 million for a brownstone. Thanks for reading this article.
