Beacon Hill’s grandeur is epitomized and celebrated on the Front Slope. This posh neighborhood has attracted Boston gentility for centuries. The Front Slope sits prominently between the riverside Flat of the Hill and the North Slope, with the 50 acre Boston Common and the Boston Public Garden – two of Boston’s most expansive green spaces – directly to the south. Although this area only includes 7 streets, when properties hit the market in the Front Slope neighborhood they command real attention. For a taste of ‘old’ Boston flavor, look no further than the Front Slope.
The Front Slope sits tucked between the riverside Flat of the Hill and the North Slope, with the generous Boston Common and the Boston Public Garden – two of Boston’s most expansive green spaces – directly to the south. The Charles River to the west makes for terrific walking and biking opportunities, and the proximity to Cambridge means easy access to Harvard and Central Squares. The Financial District and Downtown Crossing are just a few T stops away, and the conveniently located Redline means you’re minutes away from everything the city has to offer.
