Beacon Hill’s grandeur is epitomized and celebrated on the Front Slope. This posh neighborhood has attracted Boston gentility for centuries. This historic district is flanked with such storied landmarks as the Massachusetts State House, the Parker House and, well, the Boston Common! – Park-side living naturally comes at a premium and you can expect to pay it if you want to live in this sub-neighborhood. 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.
One can expect the Front Slope to produce around 30 sales per year over $1M. Sellers tend to wait for a little less than sixty days before an offer is made on the property. In the Front Slope, homes sell for $1,374 per square foot on average but it is not uncommon to see the best properties trade for well over $2,000 per foot.
The Front Slope abounds with opportunities to wine, dine, learn, and explore – and an exclusive group of residents enjoy the perks. Today’s business executives and yesterday’s high net worth families tend to congregate in this small area of Beacon Hill. Families will love direct access to the Boston Common, and even the casual athlete finds much to love along the Charles River walkways.
