Beacon Hill

Overview
 

The golden dome representing the Capital of Massachusetts rises grandly atop the hill that is this neighborhood’s namesake. Beacon Hill’s quaint, tree-lined streets quietly criss cross underneath this stately structure, granting some of Boston’s most prominent figures with enviable access to both the city’s Financial District and it’s retail capital, the Back Bay.

Location

 

Beacon Hill’s residential units are characterized by a mix of stunning, six level single family homes and tiny, thimble sized apartments. Louisburg Square, Chestnut, Walnut and Mt Vernon Streets offer up the former while Myrtle, Revere, Anderson, Phillips and Grove Streets, among others, tend to feature the latter. The Flat of the Hill, which transitions the neighborhood into the Back Bay, features a small but exquisite stock of magnificently restored carriage houses. Beacon Hill, one of the smaller Boston neighborhoods by population (9,023 residents, 2010 census), might be the largest in terms of national name recognition.


Lifestyle

 

Charles Street, the old world thoroughfare that splits “the Hill” from the “Flat of the Hill,” plays home to boutiques and restaurants that make this neighborhood a favorite for tourists and residents alike. Meanwhile, classic Mt. Vernon and Beacon Streets provide a mesmerizing, if steep, introduction to Boston’s Brahmin class – those most often interested in intellectual, political and cultural pursuits.
