The Most Amazing Greater Boston Homes for Rent in 2015

There was no shortage of gobsmacking condos, apartments and houses to rent in the region this year. We wanted to look back at some of the more show-stopping ones in terms of decor, architecture and simple head-spinning price. Our gallery commences with a 5,000-square-foot Georgian on Mid-Cambridge's tony Brattle Street, which hit the rental market in October for $16,000 a month, address unknown. It was offered fully furnished, wooden horse sculpture in the sunroom apparently included.


Can't go wrong with Millennium Place in a gallery such as this. Penthouse B there became the Downtown Crossing complex's priciest rental yet with a $35,000/month tag back in September. The spread included a wrap-around terrace with a hot tub.

Penthouse 3 at 110 Stuart Street (a.k.a. the W Boston) dropped on the rental market in late November for a cool $25,000 a month. It was offered fully furnished, wall prints and all.

Above is the deck that was on offer for $35K/month in the spring through Penthouse 1D at the Mandarin Oriental. The condo-turned-apartment also came with three curved flat-screens.

The 4,000-square-foot Queen Anne Colonial at 26 Parker Street in Cambridge proved when it debuted in the spring for $14,000 a month that sometimes elegance is all you need. Have a look inside.

The capacious Unit 806 at 360 Newbury Street went up for rent in the early spring for $18,000/month. Bonus? The penthouse is in the only Boston building that Frank Gehry has ever designed.

The 6,300-square-foot Mansard at 131 Sumner Street was Newton's priciest rental listing during the most awful depths of that most awful winter. It was asking $14,000 a month.

The 5,000-square-foot, nine-room triplex at 14 Chestnut Street dropped on the rental market during the dog days of summer for $24,000/month. The converted house it's in dates from 1822. Amazing.
