Rising Demand for Waterfront Views

May 6, 2017 |

We real estate agents see it repeatedly the minute warmer temperatures return. Many Boston luxury homes buyers are so attracted to waterfront views that they are willing to give up many things on their “must have” list in order to purchase a unit with water views. Needless to say, the sudden growth and emergence of the Seaport area have not only attracted many of the new buyers, but also have gotten the seasoned Boston luxury real estate buyers thinking of water views, even if they had no interest of locating to the waterfront neighborhood. Water views to most Boston luxury homes buyers meant views of the Charles in the Back Bay or Beacon Hill within their comfort zone. But this is no longer the case. Read More

The Crown Jewel of Historic Boston: The Appleton House

January 21, 2017 |

Boston is one of those unique cities in the country with an abundance of historic, luxury homes where the country’s forefathers once lived. Most of these houses in the Back Bay and Beacon Hill were ultimately subdivided into luxury coops, condos and apartment dwellings with high price tags, given their prime locations. Some of these Boston luxury homes have been meticulously renovated with all new and modern amenities while others have been completely gutted for contemporary flare. It is more and more rare to find a building or house with all original attributes intact and/or restored. The crown jewel of these mansions is without a question 39 Beacon Street on Beacon Hill, overlooking the Boston Common and down the hill from the State Capitol building. A most coveted location in Boston luxury real estate. Read More
