Boston, MA Still Boasts Beautiful Real Estate, Charming Neighborhoods

Boston harbourKnown for coastal beauty, old-fashioned architecture, tree-lined streets and its proximity to storied institutions like Harvard and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Boston seems to have something for everyone.

Sure, people don’t move to Massachusetts for the low real estate prices, which means something else is drawing them to the state as a whole and to Boston in particular. Below, we explore four of the area’s greatest assets, and where in the city you can find them.

East Coast Charm

Boston houses and cultureBack Bay offers that true East Coast feel, with old houses, beautiful shopping spots and lovely restaurants. The similarly named Bay Village also boasts townhome-lined streets, restaurants, theaters and brickwork galore. Traditional row houses built of brick and three-decker homes offer Mission hill a bit of that East Coast flavor as well.

Education Station

Of course, Boston has a rich history as a global center of education. Allston combines the best of student living with a rich assortment of institutions of higher learning and a wealth of restaurants and pubs. Get other educational kicks in South Boston, which hosts the Boston Convention and Exhibition Center (not to mention some new real estate coming in the next few years), as well as West End, whose longtime fans included Ralph Waldo Emerson, Nathaniel Hawthorne and Henry David Thoreau.

A Case of Culture

Considering it is home to Fenway Park and the Boston Red Sox, you can’t beat Fenway Kenmore for culture. The Museum of Fine Arts and Symphony Hall call this neighborhood home as well. Diversity and vitality also flow through Jamaica Park, helped by urban renewal and burgeoning diversity.

Perhaps one of the most Bostonian of neighborhoods is Beacon Hill, which gets its name from the warning beacon that used to tower above the surrounding streets to warn of invasion. Brickwork, antique architecture and colonial touches hark back to older times, and snapshots of the area look as though they belong in a textbook. Another historical spot? Dorchester, founded around the same time as the city itself.

No matter what you’re looking for in Boston, with the right resources and a knowledgeable realtor by your side, you’re sure to have success in this one-of-a-kind, culturally rich piece of American history. If you’re looking to buy a house in this area, give yourself enough time to really explore each neighborhood and figure out what’s most important to you.
