Every large city has its massive homes, with costs running well into the millions, and to that end Boston is no exception! The following are the 5 most expensive (and stunning) homes in Boston.
89 Beacon Street was for sale as of early March for a staggering price tag of $15.995 million! That's almost SIXTEEN MILLION dollars for this historic brownstone penthouse. Located in downtown Boston, the property boasts 5,703 square foot, with 4 bedrooms and 6 baths. The inside is luxuriously decorated, and it comes complete with a rooftop patio for entertaining and exclusive parking in its 1-car garage.
776 Boylston Street is a close-runner for second place in the race to being the most expensive home in Boston, priced at a whopping $13.5 million. This Boylston Street home is bit smaller than its predecessor at 3,500 square feet and boasts 3 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms included in that space. This lushly decorated, historic unit overlooks the entire downtown area of Boston from its location in Back Bay, and offers one of the most complete service and amenities packages available anywhere in the city.
400 Stuart Street #19D clocks in at spot number three with a colossal price tag of $10.5 million (which has recently been dropped to $9,995,000). For this 4 bedroom, 4.5 bathroom unit that totals about 5,000 square feet of living space, the HOA fee is also just shy of $4,000 per month, on top of the mortgage. The condo comes with all the amenities anyone could want, including a 24-hour concierge doorman, an onsite gym, a playroom, club room, conference room, library, outdoor sundeck, fire pit, restaurant, and even a pet spa, just to name a few of the comforts that this apartment comes decked out with.
25 Beacon Street is a $9,350,000 condominium that was just built in 2017 and has a staggering HOA fee of over $6,150 per month. This 3,583 square foot condo includes 3 bedrooms and 3.5 bathrooms, as well as a spacious great room and a state-of-the-art kitchen. There is also a 24-hour doorman and the condo overlooks the State House Gardens and the Boston Commons. This is 21st century living in an 18th-century neighborhood at its finest.
1 Franklin Street costs $5,350,000 and is a 3 bedroom, 3.5 bathroom end unit which consists of 2,222 square feet of living space. In addition to the steep price tag, the HOA fee exceeds $2,500 per month for this unit. 1 Franklin Street has a great view over some of the most historic landmarks in Boston, including the Charles River, Boston Common Public Garden, and the Back Bay Skyline. 11.8-foot ceilings help the condo feel more open and even larger than it already is. The unit also comes with a private screening room, library, function room, and other amenities for its residents as well as 2 garage parking spaces.
These are 5 of the most expensive homes that are located in Boston as of 2018. Expensive, yes, but that's the price that one will pay for an extraordinary location and (and view!) in a historic part of downtown a large city such as Boston. That's not even mentioning the pure luxury of these homes, in addition to the endless amenities that are included.
Though these properties are a bit out of budget for most of us, there are still real estate treasures to be found at every price point. For more information on purchasing your dream home in Boston, please feel free to contact us.
