Boston's ultimate residential address

There is no more exclusive or pedigreed Boston residential address than 89 Beacon Street. The most prestigious block on the "flat of the Hill" became the seat of Boston power and wealth. Here, in the heart of one of Boston's most historic and revered neighborhoods, intellectual, artistic, and literary luminaries such as John Singleton Copley, Daniel Webster, and Henry David Thoreau made their home. So too did the city's social elite—the Boston Brahmins—of the mid 19th century, Putnams and Parkers, Sears and Grews. Oliver Wendell Holmes described Beacon as "the sunny street that holds the sifted few."

These wealthy merchants claimed the townhomes that were being built almost in partnership with the Public Garden emerging directly across the street. Just as the lush landscaping of America's first public botanical garden would come to define Boston's ultimate urban oasis, 89 Beacon Street and its sister townhomes would come to define the most desirable and opulent Boston residential addresses.

This coveted location puts the very best of Boston at your fingertips. It's an easy walk over to historic Charles Street and its cosmopolitan shops or, just as easily, to all that sophisticated Back Bay has to offer. Whether you seek the daily conveniences of contemporary life or the delicious pot pourri that is Newbury Street, it's all here where Beacon Hill and Back Bay come together—boutiques and gourmet grocers, fine restaurants and sidewalk cafes, fitness centers and flower stalls, antique shops and art galleries.

From this exclusive address, one can walk to the Financial District or the Theatre District. Just a block away is the pedestrian bridge to the Esplanade and its open invitation to run (or relax) along the Charles River. There's sailing on the Charles in summer, skating on the Boston Common Frog Pond in winter, and wonderful year round dining options, all within walking distance. If you're traveling by car, you'll be glad to know it is truly just a minute or two from your own gated parking area to Storrow Drive and the highways that can take you anywhere. But perhaps you will simply choose to stay in and enjoy the luxury and beauty of your own home.
