Discover South Boston Real Estate

The South Boston real estate market has seen a significant boom in the past few years as the area has undergone many gentrification and beautification projects. Many homes for sale in South Boston now sell above one million dollars, making it one of the most expensive places to live in the city. In fact, the South Boston neighborhood of City Point once saw the highest prices in the whole of Boston real estate.

The East Side of the neighborhood is the most expensive area due to its prime location near Boston’s downtown core. Also, this area was one of the first places that was gentrified, which ultimately strengthened the price of its real estate. Now, this part of South Boston is filled with brand new condo complexes and townhomes that offer luxurious interiors and top rated amenities.

The West Side of the community is less expensive than the East Side because it hasn’t seen as much gentrification in recent years. Nevertheless, the homes in this area are absolutely stunning, offering Victorian architecture and charming interiors. You won’t find character like this in any other part of the neighborhood.

South Boston real estate can be characterized by its stunning Victorian row houses that line the streets with architectural beauty. Plenty of the homes for sale in South Boston were built at the end of the 19th century, so it’s common for them to have brick exteriors and bay windows. Although many of these places have been recently renovated to have modern interiors and designs, they still maintain their original charm through the wood flooring and archways between rooms.

The best part about the homes in this community is that many are located near the waterfront. This means that you’re only a stone’s throw away from the best summer spots. Another perk of living in this area is that plenty of properties have stunning views of the city skyline. It truly doesn’t get any better than this.

South Boston Community Lifestyle and Amenities

Located to the south and east of the Fort Point Channel, South Boston is a vibrant community known as Southie. It was once a hotspot for the Irish Catholics in the 20th century, but the area now attracts all types of people, especially young professionals who want to be near the downtown core, but have ample living space.

It’s not only the phenomenal selection of homes on the real estate market that attracts so many people to South Boston. The neighborhood’s charm and vibrancy is also a part of the equation. The community is home to tons of gourmet grocery stores, top-rated restaurants, and quaint cafes, making it an extremely convenient place to live. The best spot to find all of these places is along West Broadway.

In addition to all of the restaurants and cafes, South Boston has tons of community parks and playgrounds, which makes it the perfect place for all types of lifestyles. Young families can visit one of the many playgrounds peppered throughout the community. Other popular parks include:

  • Joe Moakley Park
  • Thomas Park
  • M Street Park
  • South Boston Maritime Park

The Shoreline by Dorchester is possibly the most popular attraction in the whole of South Boston. It’s home to Castle Island and 22 acres of parkland. There is also a beach access that visitors frequent during the summer months.

Dorchester Heights is a historical landmark in the community which remembers the place where George Washington forced British troops to evacuate during the war. This spot is a beautiful park where you can enjoy the outdoors.

Living in South Boston is very convenient, especially since it is served by two red line Rapid Transit stations: Broadway and Andrew. There are also plenty of buses that will connect you to the rest of the city. But downtown isn’t not very far at all. It’s only a few minutes away, making your morning commute easier than ever!
