Boston is among the most cultured cities in the country. If you consider the Boston Symphony, the Boston Ballet, the Museum of Fine Arts and the Institute of Contemporary Art, summer concerts on the banks of the Charles River, not to mention numerous regional theaters, Boston might truly be celebrated for its world class cultural institutions.
The rich history of Boston is reflected in many of its residential neighborhoods. With streets that were once cow paths, the area’s 19th Century residences are surrounded by gas lanterns and brick sidewalks. Such historical features lend a great deal of charm to the city neighborhoods of Back Bay, Beacon Hill, Charlestown and the South End.
Home to some of Boston’s most valuable real estate, these residential enclaves afford residents a mix of grand brownstone buildings, brick and clapboard row houses, full service condominiums in luxury high-rise buildings and even new loft-style apartments. There’s something for everyone right in the heart of the city.
The Seaport District is an up-and-coming residential area, abundant with modern buildings that enjoy city and water views. A vibrant neighborhood adding new restaurants nearly every day, the Seaport offers close proximity to the Financial District and the Waterfront via the Harborwalk.
Back Bay and Beacon Hill are home to one of our favorite places to take in the beauty and serenity of the city. The Boston Common and The Public Garden provide an oasis of green space for residents and tourists alike, and the swan boats in summer are one of Boston’s top motifs for tourists and local shutterbugs.
Back Bay’s Newbury Street and Boylston Street offer a full shopping experience with a combination of boutiques, well-recognized stores such as Chanel and Ralph Lauren, and plenty of dining options with outdoor seating in the warm weather. If you prefer to shop indoors Copley Place and the Prudential Mall offer all of the comforts of upscale mall shopping just steps away.
The South End offers substantial 19th century brownstone buildings, new loft-style apartments and boutiques and restaurants all around.
Charlestown is just a few minutes from downtown Boston and is comprised of narrow and hilly streets that lead to the Bunker Hill Monument as well as a quaint Main Street.
The Waterfront offers great options for living with properties overlooking the water having easy access to the restaurants of The North End and within walking distance to the Financial District.
If you’re a culinary enthusiast, Boston is known as one of the food capitals of the country. From the tony L’Espalier in the Back Bay to the Legal Harborside in the Seaport District, there are abundant options to suit any palate and budget.
