Back Bay named as Boston magazine’s “Best Place to Live”
Feb 2011 28

The Back Bay has been named as one of the “Best Places to Live” by Boston magazine, reported in its March 2011 issue.

Those already living here know how great the neighborhood is. You can enjoy all the city has to offer and the neighborhood is convenient to the financial district, arts district, and major highways and interstates.

Property values have remained strong during the past ten years; it’s one of the few neighborhoods to have seen price appreciation every year going back at least to the mid-1990′s.

While housing isn’t cheap here (like most of downtown Boston), if you’re fortunate enough to be able to afford it, you can’t beat buying a home and living here.

Please contact me for more information about living in this wonderful neighborhood and to learn about the wide variety of living options available, to renters and buyers alike.

According to Boston magazine:

The Back Bay
Median condo Price $748,000
One-Year difference +16%

Behold, the gilded life: immediate access to Newbury Street and Copley Place’s shopping and restaurants; day spa and salon services; strolls in the Public Garden; and the gorgeous-in-all-seasons Commonwealth Avenue Mall.

Where you should be looking: Two addresses on Beacon Street: 180 and 330. These are high-rises constructed just before the Back Bay Architectural Commission banned such buildings. Today they have all the swank an empty-nester would want, without the price tag of, say, a One Charles condo. Plus, you’re living on top of the city.
