Predominantly historic row houses, brownstones, and single family homes, with a few mid-rise concierge condominium buildings.
The winsome housing stock in historic Beacon Hill was mostly built starting around 1800; many of the original homes still stand, though they have been renovated to modern-day standards while preserving much of the historic quirk and charm. One of the most expensive areas of Boston, Beacon Hill homes were built on steep inclines, the Flat of the Hill, and along cobble stoned streets. Lovely back gardens abound, along with roof decks with jaw dropping views of Boston Common and the Charles River. Beacon Hill is a mix of single families, condominiums, and rental apartments.
