Beacon Hill Real Estate

Beacon Hill is one of Boston’s oldest neighborhoods as well as one of its most expensive and sought after addresses. Gaslights accent the narrow cobblestone streets lined with some of the finest examples of Federal and Greek Revival architecture. Home to plenty of past and present Brahmins, Beacon Hill includes three sections: the south slope, the north slope, and the “Flat of the Hill” along its 1/6 of a square mile area. Picturesque Acorn Street is an alleyway that is one of the most photographed streets in the United States, adorning postcards, paintings and many Instagram feeds, much to the chagrin of Beacon HIll’s 9,000 residents. The Charles River Esplanade Hatch Shell hosts summer concerts as well as the traditional Fourth of July fireworks celebration. Read more about Beacon Hill real estate.

More About Beacon Hill Real Estate

 Beacon Hill Location

Beacon Hill originally boasted three hills — Beacon Hill and two others nearby which were leveled for development purposes. Before the hills were reduced, Beacon Hill was situated just behind the current site of the Massachusetts State House. Today, Beacon Hill sits along the riverfront of the Charles River Esplanade, just north of Boston Common and the Boston Public Garden. Beacon Hill is bounded by Storrow Drive, and Cambridge; Bowdoin; Park, and Beacon Streets.

Beacon Hill History

Beacon Hill played an important role in the development of Boston because of the three peaks that initially defined the area. Beacon Hill was originally dubbed “trimount” in reference to these hills. “Trimount” later became “Tremont Street,” a nearby roadway. Once the State House was constructed in 1795, developers leveled the hills to fill in the Charles River. These early real estate developers looked to create an esteemed residential district on the newly flattened landscape and helped fund the construction of the neighborhood’s first mansions. Today the term “Beacon Hill” is used to refer to the state government or the legislature itself, in addition to the prestigious neighborhood. The area is also known as a popular Sunday hangout and renowned for the upscale antique shops lining Charles Street.
