BEACON HILL CONDO MARKET
One of the oldest and most desirable neighborhoods in the Boston area, Beacon Hill offers plenty of reasons as to why it is so considered. Most popular and widely known for its historic houses and streets that still remain today, this community is said to be considered more like a small village than just a neighborhood. With only one square mile of total space, Beacon Hill is home to approximately 10,000 residents. While such a small area provides just about everything within walking distance, and tight-knit community feels welcoming, it's understandable why homes in the neighborhood are highly sought after.
Homes in the Beacon Hill area are typically classic early 19th century red brick buildings, that create the feeling of traveling back to that time period. The historic houses are complete with "beautiful doors and decorative iron work" (knockers). The rows of houses line brick sidewalks, and narrow cobblestone streets – lit by gorgeous gas lamps. And while it is said to be one of the most expensive neighborhoods, Beacon Hill offers numerous housing options, likely to fit most budgets.

While it may be a bit pricier than some other neighborhoods, Beacon Hill offers so many positive aspects, that they seem to outweigh the slight difference in prices. The beauty and history that the area offers is priceless. Originally created to protect historic sites, the neighborhood was made Historic Beacon Hill District in 1955 – the first in Massachusetts. And just seven years later, the area was named a National Historic Landmark. This is likely because of not only the historic homes in the neighborhood, but the other historic landmark buildings.
Beacon Hill is home to several well-known buildings – some built hundreds of years ago – as well as numerous community organizations. Located in Beacon Hill is Suffolk University Law School, the Massachusetts State House, the Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court, and the Chester Harding House – which was once occupied by the well-known painter Chester Harding – and now houses the Boston Bar Association. The Club of Odd Volumes is located in a historic building in Beacon Hill, and is a private social club whose members are people who love anything to do with books. Also found in the area is the Headquarters House – a museum based out of a house built in the early 1800s.
Offering a little diversity that other neighborhoods may not, the Boston African American National Historic Site – which displays pre-Civil War structures portraying the history of the African American community – can be found in Beacon Hill. The Museum of African American History, the largest museum dedicated to African Americans found in New England, is also located in Beacon Hill. With fun, beauty, affordability, and historic significance, Beacon Hill would make a great choice as a long-term residence.
