Boston’s Beacon Hill, home to some of America’s oldest families, is one of the city’s most exclusive and historic neighborhoods, The golden dome of the Massachusetts State House acts as a guiding light sitting on top of Beacon Street and overlooking both the neighborhood and the bordering, gorgeous, open spaces of Boston Common. Often referred to as “The Hill” by residents, the area encompassed within Charles, Cambridge, and Beacon Streets and Mugar Way is perhaps the most tranquil urban neighborhood in the country. Numerous independent shops, boutiques, taverns, and restaurants along Charles and Cambridge Street offer bountiful options. In contrast, the narrow, tree lined side streets on any of Beacon Hill’s slopes are a peaceful retreat from busy city life.
Nearly all the other neighborhoods and districts in the city can be easily accessed from Beacon Hill. The best of Boston can be found minutes away from the picturesque neighborhood. The Back Bay, North End, Government Center, Financial District, and the Theatre District are within short walking distance. World renowned Massachusetts General Hospital sits at the bottom of The Hill on Cambridge Street. This central location makes the neighborhood highly desirable for professionals who prefer to commute by foot. City permitted parking parking is available on most streets. Residences on Beacon Hill range from townhouses in Louisburg Square and along Beacon Street to newly converted condo buildings and property waiting to be converted throughout the neighborhood.
