Massachusetts Priciest Real Estate

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.

First, we will detail the historic brick townhouse at 8 Mount Vernon Place, Beacon Hill, Boston, the selling price of this real estate gem is US$25,000,000 ($2559/sqft). The second place is awarded to the family home located at 17 Louisburg Square, which is valued at US$20,000,000 ($2693/sqft). In third place, we have a beautiful residence located at 14 Walnut St. costing US$15,000,000 ($2106/sqtf).

Let’s now take a look at Boston’s most expensive condos which are all-new luxury properties located at the Back Bay and the Downtown area. 

First on the list is the new super luxurious Millenium Tower called “Grand Penthouse” for obvious reasons. It boasts over 13,000 sqft of living space with panoramic views of the Boston skyline and ocean. The price tag is US$45,000,000 being one of the condos most expensive in the world. The next two properties on the list are located at Mandarin Oriental residences. The penthouse at 776 Boylston St. Unit PH2E is a 6,800 sqft residence with sweeping city views, valuated at US$28,000,000. Followed by the residence 776 Boylston Street Unit E9A which has 3,500 sqft of living space, encompassing three bedrooms and luxurious appliances, valued at US$12,500,000.

5. 44 Nevada Road

Price Tag: $2,295,000 

Built in 2019, this property is hosted by nearly a quarter of an acre of land. A level lot and a backyard with so much room for activities, invite everyone you know to your move-in BBQ and break out the ladder toss. Found in a renowned school district, this twelve-room home couldn’t be more perfect for a family. With twelve rooms, a fully finished lower level, and loads of natural light, this home is the perfect balance between luxury and minimalism.

4. 1622 Great Plain Ave

Price Tag: $2,295,000

You’ll find this contemporary colonial fits 5,250 square feet on almost half an acre of land, and still we see a driveway and sprawling backyard that could team up for much better BBQs. Where to start? Marble bathrooms with a shower spacious enough for water polo, or maybe the multiple fireplaces. If you’re tasked with picking your favorite part of this property, best of luck to you.

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

If you’re going to click any photo on this list, make it this one. The Mary Poppins bag on our list, you might get lost in this almost 7,300 square foot estate.

Twelve rooms, chef’s kitchen, a basement with nine-foot-higg ceilings, and a library. The photos, the tour… this property speaks for itself.

BONUS: 27 Belle Lane

Our bonus home is currently under construction. Custom designed by Michael McKay, sitting on 1.8 acres, you’re looking at over 8,000 square feet of living space. Fifteen rooms sitting heavily at the end of a private way cul-de-sac, this monolith is a testament to what success brings– like an in-home theatre, or maybe a library. 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. 

All of these manors are currently for sale! If you’re interested in these, or any other properties, reach out to us here at Castles Unlimited. We’re eager to help and look forward to hearing from you!

First New Construction in Beacon Hill in 50 Years

The Chestnut Street Townhouse by Hacin + Associates in Boston, Massachusetts will be the first new construction in the Beacon Hill neighborhood in the last 50 years.

The original structure for the Chestnut Street Townhouse was thought to have been a stable before it was rebuilt as a house in the 1920s. Due to wear over the years the home was deemed unsalvageable, and is now being rebuilt for a second time. The designers and architects who worked on the Chestnut Street Townhouse were careful to preserve the historic architectural elements of the area, so as to complement rather than upstage the neighboring buildings. Period-evocative materials, such as brick, copper, wrought iron, and steel, anchor the building in the neighborhood’s historical context.

Skylights and a roof deck were added to brighten up the home. Luxury materials like marble and granite used in the kitchens and fireplaces add a modern touch.
