Beacon Hill Condo Living

Boson Beacon Hill is an officially recognized neighborhood of Boston, Massachusetts. It is most famous for its rows of Victorian brownstone homes — considered one of the best preserved examples of 19th-century urban design in the United States — as well as numerous architecturally significant individual buildings, and cultural institutions such as the Boston Public Library. It is also a fashionable shopping destination (especially Newbury and Boylston Streets, and the adjacent Prudential Center and Copley Place malls) and home to some of Bostons tallest office buildings, the Hynes Convention Center, and numerous major hotels.

Welcome

To Beacon Hill Living

Beacon Hill is one of the oldest and most desirable neighborhoods in Boston.

Designated a National Historic Landmark in 1962, the approximate one-square mile of narrow streets and Federal-style row-houses is home to an eclectic mix of single-family homes, studios, condos, apartments, ground-floor retail shops and restaurants, and other amenities that add up to an urban elegance often compared to the most handsome neighborhoods in Europe.

Bounded by the Boston Common and Boston Public Garden along Beacon Street, the Charles River Esplanade park system, the bustling Cambridge Street corridor and historic Park Street, Beacon Hill sits in the heart of historic downtown Boston and is capped with the gold-domed State House designed by famed architect Charles Bulfinch in the early 1800s. The State House itself is surrounded by a small sea of low-level, brick-covered buildings and narrow brick-covered sidewalks lit by gaslights.

Beacon Hill is divided into three sections: The South Slope, the North Slope and what is called "The Flats." The South Slope and The Flats haven't changed much over the generations, architecturally and demographically, and are still considered, as they were once described in the 19th Century, as the "seat of Boston wealth and power."

The North Slope has undergone numerous transformations, evolving from its historic role as home to sailors, immigrants and the first African-American settlements in America. Indeed, Beacon Hill used to be a hot-bed of the abolitionist movement and numerous historical markers note the role of Beacon Hill in the "underground railroad" system that protected runaway slaves before the American Civil War. Beacon Hill is the proud home of the Museum of African-American History.

With a population of 9,000, Beacon Hill Condos comprise of approximately 5,400 households, nearly a third of them family households living in these beautiful brownstone condos. In the heart of the neighborhood lies the elegant Louisburg Square, surrounded by federal-style single-family homes built in the 1800s. The nearby Acorn Street, with its narrow and quaint cobblestone alleyway, is one of the most photographed and painted scenes in Boston.

Charles Street runs through the heart of the neighborhood and is host to restaurants, taverns, antique stores, grocery shops, bakeries and cafes, and other retail and business amenities. National chain-establishments are deliberately kept to an absolute minimum.

Beacon Hill is surrounded by conveniently located mass-transit stops, including the renovated Charles Street Red Line Station (connecting riders to other nearby downtown sites going one way and to Harvard University, MIT and Tufts University across the Charles River in the other), the Park Street Red and Green Line Station near the State House, the Bowdoin Blue Line Station and the Arlington Street Green Line Station.

Though blessed with convenient mass-transit access, Beacon Hill is ultimately known as a highly walkable neighborhood in a highly walkable city, with easy foot access across the Boston Common to the bustling Downtown Crossing and Financial District, across the Boston Public Garden to the gorgeous Back Bay neighborhood and its famous Newbury Street shops and restaurants, and across Cambridge Street to the world-renowned Massachusetts General Hospital.

In the end, Beacon Hill is a self-contained neighborhood of charm and convenience sitting in the heart of historic downtown Boston, a neighborhood cherished by residents and non-residents alike.
