Discover Back Bay Real Estate

Back Bay has one of the most exclusive real estate markets in the whole of Boston, offering million dollar townhouses that date back to the early 1900s. This waterfront neighborhood is famous for its Victorian architecture that boasts red brick exteriors and ornate roof lines. Because of the community’s outstanding location and undeniable beauty, the homes for sale in Back Bay are among the most expensive in the city.

Brick row houses set the stage for Bay Bay real estate, offering gorgeous interiors that feature tall, coffered ceilings, hardwood flooring, and stone countertops. Rich details like these create the perfect combination of stature and sophistication, impressing those with even the most refined tastes.

Many of the homes have stunning millwork in formal living rooms and home offices, which showcase the highest standard of craftsmanship. These homes truly represent splendor and wealth with their high-end amenities such as gourmet kitchens, breakfast nooks, and media rooms.

Although many of these properties were built in the early 1900s, plenty have been recently renovated to have modern amenities that make life not only comfortable, but convenient. Even so, these homes still retain their unique styles from when they were first built, giving these brick row houses charm unlike any other in the city.

In addition to the Victorian row houses, Back Bay real estate boasts brand new townhouses that mimic the designs from years past. These townhouses are brick clad just as the older ones are, but they are completely brand new in their interior designs. Many of them are equipped with the latest technology, such as smart home devices and energy efficient systems. These homes are the perfect option for those who desire the charm of the iconic Victorians, but require the features of the new-builds.

The Back Bay area also has its fair share of luxury condo buildings that grace the skylines with immaculate glass windows. Condos for sale in these buildings are absolutely stunning, providing every necessity required for a comfortable lifestyle. This means in-suite laundry rooms, open-concept living spaces, and private terraces.

Back Bay Community Lifestyle and Amenities

Back Bay is one of the oldest communities in Boston, with much of its architecture dating back to the late 19th century. Around nearly every corner you can spot historical buildings, such as the Boston Public Library, Trinity Church, and the Old South Church, which reveal the community’s rich pedigree.

When the area was first developed in the late 1800s, city planners devised wide, tree-lined streets that would be graced by stunning brick row houses. These stunning streets still exist today, making Back Bay absolutely gorgeous in its designs.

Now, this area is known for its high-end shopping and fine dining restaurants. Newbury Street and Boylston Street are where you will find designer boutiques and high-class restaurants. It has become an extremely popular spot among all Boston residents, and especially for those who live in Back Bay.

In addition to the street shopping, there are two massive shopping malls in the local area, so you never have to travel far for the essentials. Prudential Center and Copley Place are the two most popular spots.

What attracts so many people to Back Bay is its wide variety of parks and green spaces that are peppered throughout the neighborhood. Back Bay Fens is a picturesque park that locals frequent. It forms a part of Boston’s Emerald Necklace. Other fantastic parks include:

  • Boston Public Garden
  • The Charles River Reservation
  • Charlesgate Park
  • Esplanade Playground

Possibly one of the best parts about living in this affluent neighborhood is that it’s located in the center of the city. This means that you can commute to just about anywhere in Boston with ease—either by car or by transit.
