UPTON STREET: Connecting Tremont and Shawmut’s retail corridors | By Rachel Bakish

Though inventory has been limited for many years in Boston’s desirable neighborhoods, sales activity is generally frenetic in Boston’s South End. Upton Street is an especially interesting case at the moment as there are 7 properties listed for sale on this street alone. Upton Street is an entirely residential street (it’s only 675 feet in total length) that connects the more heavily pedestrian stretches of Tremont and Shawmut Avenue where retail options await neighborhood strollers. We believe the timing of this concentration of listing activity to be a coincidence but the volume of overlapping listings may well cause some of the units to stagnate on the market. In particular, there are 5 properties currently listed with three bedrooms on Upton Street. They are all priced between $1.6M and $2.35M. None of these properties traded within their first week on the market which is somewhat rare for such a prime location within the South End.

There’s only one unit that is available for less than $1M and it includes both a parking space and a private deck! See the details on that unit as well as the larger units below:

A bonus room off the bedroom functions currently as an office and includes custom built-ins and additional storage.
