Beginning in 1857 and continuing until 1880, the Back Bay, the body of water separating Boston from Brookline, was filled, adding 450 acres of land to the city of Boston. Today it stands as one of the city’s most resplendent neighborhoods. Marked by historic and exclusive boulevards, such as Newbury Street and Commonwealth Avenue, the Back Bay is home to the northern portion of the City’s Emerald Necklace, the green space that threads its way through the inner core of the city. The neighborhood is also one of the busiest retail sections of Boston, with a thriving commercial center along Boylston and Newbury Streets, and including the nearby Prudential Center and Copley Place.
Perfectly situated in the desirable St. Botolph neighborhood along the Southwest corridor, this charming 1 bedroom garden-level home has an updated kitchen, beautiful Grecian white marble bath, gleaming hardwood floors and a delightful private patio with ivy trellis. This move-in ready unit features recessed lighting throughout, a king-size bedroom with walk-in closet and a Mitsubishi ductless cooling/heating system all in a professionally managed & pet friendly association. Located on a quiet, tree-lined cul-de-sac, yet in the middle of all the Back Bay and South End has to offer Symphony Hall, Copley Place/Prudential Center, Titus Sparrow Park, Whole Foods & restaurants & shops galore with easy access to the MBTA Green/Orange lines & commuter rail. Showings start Friday, 8/1 at OH from 4-5PM with an additional OH on Sunday, 8/3 from 1-3PM. Offers, if any, reviewed on Monday, 8/4 at 6PM.
