Massachusetts has been known over the years as an expensive place to live, mainly because of the real estate selling prices.  Boston, the capital and largest city has the highest median price per square foot among the largest 100 cities in the US. However, you can find modern housing for reasonable prices all over the Bay State. Single-family homes and apartment buildings in the market happen to be built several years ago and had been remodeled recently with the latest appliances and utilities. Because of the history, quality, and location, asking prices can get pretty high, therefore, we are disclosing in this post the most expensive, historic and luxurious properties in the state.

3. 389 Grove Street

Price Tag: $2,385,000

And I quote, “Sun-splashed, fireplaced living room with soaring ceilings and french doors opening to stone patio. Formal dining room with adjoining built in bar, spacious sun room overlooking stunning gardens, stone walls and pool.” Wait until you see the landscaping that the birds-eye-view drone shot couldn’t even capture all of, and maybe check out the interior afterwards. The stone bridge over the pond leads me to believe someone must have an affinity towards English gardens. Also towards spiral staircases, which we support wholeheartedly.

2. 150 South Street

Price Tag: $2,400,000

This home, get this, was once part of the N.C. Wyeth family compound! To say it’s “steeped in history” is one thing, but to see and feel it for yourself is another. Immense wealth and acute attention to the importance of beauty in our homes. Both are visible in the character of the family that brought this beast to life. “Beast” is the most accurate word, as it’s almost intimidating that such a feat was managed into becoming what we see today. Leaded glass windows. English oak wood reclaimed from a Beacon Hill estate. If your family hasn’t been generationally wealthy for the last couple centuries, this home will fool the best of them. If it has, you’ll feel right at home.

1. 1297 Central Ave

Price Tag: $2,500,000

No need to choose, this house has both, as well as an au pair suite, formal living and dining rooms, and almost as many garage stalls as there are bathrooms, and there are a lot of bathrooms. A stunning master suite, one of many bedrooms decorates the interior, and, not last or least, a bonus room above the garage waiting for further finishing instructions from whoever’s finds themselves lucky enough to sign for this titan. 

Clocking in with a Price Tag of $3,595,000, it would have topped our list if it were move in ready. Construction is expected to finish this year, 2020, and in addition to customizing the bonus room, buyers even still have time to pick colors, finishes, and amenities.
