The South End is constantly regarded as one of the top places to live in Boston. The array of attractions from museums, to art galleries, the Boston Ballet, the Calderwood Pavilion, the countless churches, parks, dog parks, boutique stores, coffee shops, markets, and fine dining options, are all just some of the many reasons that make this neighborhood so quaint and highly sought after by buyers.
Near the Back Bay, South Boston, The Fenway, Downtown Boston, Dorchester, and other desirable neighborhoods, the South End gives one that small and pleasant neighborhood feel that is uniquely positioned right in the heart of the city. The neighborhood is also known as one of the most expensive to live, yet for good reason.
The most notable streets of the South End where a great deal of the activity occurs is along Columbus Avenue, Tremont Street, Washington Street, Berkeley Street, and West Newton Street. These, alone with the other streets and districts are commonly lined with mid-nineteenth Century brick bowfronts. A mix of Renaissance Revival, French Second Empire, Italianate, Greek Revival, Gothic Revival, Queen Anne Style, and Egyptian Revival are all present. It thus goes without saying that the South End is one of the most artistic and diverse communities in the city. It is this combination of people from all ranges of backgrounds that make the South End such an exciting and special experience to call home.
