Beacon Hill

Upscale Boston Living
Beacon Hill is famous for its beautiful architecture, and charming brick apartments and buildings. According to legend, the town earned its name from a beacon that warned about foreign invasions, which sat upon a hill. Beacon Hill is home to the Massachusetts State House, the state capital and seat of government, which replaced the Old State House in 1795. The Charles River Esplanade’s Hatch Shell is famous for hosting the Summer events which families, young adults, and the elderly alike enjoy. Charles Street is another hotspot in Beacon Hill. There, residents enjoy a sophisticated array of fashion stores and boutiques. Along its quaint narrow streets, the neighbors maintain lovely gardens and charming decorations throughout the year, which makes the area a perfect place to take a stroll.

Beacon Hill has a great restaurant and bar scene. Restaurants in the area include 75 Chestnut, Cheers, Toscano, The Paramount, Zen Restaurant, and Grotto. Bars in the area include The Sevens Ale House, Harvard Gardens, Liberty Lobby Bar, and 21st Amendment. Beacon Hill is perfect for people looking to enjoy the sophistication and luxury of Boston’s best living.

Beacon Hill — None/10 Rating (based on 3 neighborhood reviews)
Blocks from the MA State House and Boston Common Parks. Easy walk to Cambridge St. which has Whole Foods (no other grocery store options), CVS, liquor stores, dry cleaners, banks, etc. Blocks from Park St and Bowdoin Stations, super easy to airport. Lots of foot traffic, generally clean and safe.

Location is amazing, close to everything, nice historic feel and love being close to the common. Only downside is the price and the size of the places. Some apartments have awful layouts.

This apartment is 1 block away from the state house in arguably the most scenic neighborhood in Boston. Many of the best restaurants/bars in the city are within a 15 min walk. Green/Red/Blue/Orange lines all within a 10 min walk.
