Home to a large number of college students who are drawn to the lively bars and clubs along Lansdowne Street and the vibrant activity of game-day, Fenway is also home to a large population of professionals who enjoy the urban environment and a wealth of cultural and recreational opportunities.

The Fenway Real Estate Market
Fenway’s most iconic and well-known feature is naturally the ballpark at its center that shares its name. But to set this up as the sole feature of note in the Boston neighborhood would be a mistake. Fenway has transformed a great deal in the past few decades (like many communities in Boston) and is now a multi-faceted and thriving cultural center in the city.
Fenway-Kenmore is among Boston’s officially recognized neighborhoods but like many other areas, Fenway can be split up into several sub-areas, each with a character all its own. Fenway’s neighborhood features a fascinating juxtaposition of new builds that replaced several historic buildings and numerous iconic brownstone townhouses and brick walk ups. Many of these stunning character properties were built between 1880 and 1930.
Aside from the crowds that swell Fenway’s population on gameday, the neighborhood has become well known as a hot spot for students. The student population has accumulated for the area’s convenient location close to numerous schools. This includes portions of Boston University, Northeastern University, Berkeley College of Music and the Boston Conservatory of Music. Rental housing can be found throughout the area, and many of the historic 5 and 6 story townhomes have been converted into condominiums or rental apartments.
Fenway Community Highlights
Fenway is an iconic neighborhood of Boston. To the north is the Charles River and the infamous Fenway Park sits at the literal heart of the neighborhood. Aside from Fenway Park at its center, Fenway’s other well known landmarks include the iconic Citgo sign, serving as a beacon of Kenmore Square. The high student population has brought with it a larger number of the types of businesses that cater to this demographic. This includes trendy restaurants and stores. No longer just the area Bostonians can grab a hot dog and watch the Sox play, Fenway is now home to a delightfully diverse assortment of gourmet foods and fascinating stores.
Although there is a kind of commercial district along Boylston St that features a Target, the majority of businesses in Fenway are sprinkled throughout the area and made up of smaller, locally owned establishments.
Fenway also features a number of beautiful green spaces that provide a welcome respite from city life. Back Bay Fens is one of Fenway’s best park and it that lines the riverbanks, featuring a network of walking trails amid mature trees.
With so much variety to offer, it’s easy to see why many homebuyers choose to make this lovely neighborhood their home. To start your real estate search in Fenway, contact Terrier Real Estate today! Their Boston REALTORS® are here to help.
