Where the 'Children of the Street' Play in Beacon Hill

It was Chestnut Street last week; this week's it's another nut: Acorn.

The 2,902-square-foot townhouse at 3 Acorn Street, along one of Beacon Hill's narrowest and prettiest lanes, dates from 1825 and has the kind of urban charm that studied-abroad young professionals swoon over: The townhouse is "as much Europe as Boston," according to the listing from Keller Williams. "Outside, children of the street play beneath gaslights on cobblestones away from auto traffic." The 4-BR, 4-BA spread, with two balconies and a private courtyard, last traded in July 2010 for $2,400,000. Before that, it was way back in 1998, when the sales price crested $1,000,000. Yours now for $2,995,000.
