Swanky new boutique projects such as the Whitwell at 32 Derne Street and the Maison Vernon at 39 Mount Vernon Street (not to mention the floor-throughs at 25 Beacon) are apparently driving up the average condo price in ever-tony Beacon Hill.

A new analysis of current market-rate asking prices by real estate research site NeighborhoodX makes it plain. The most expensive listings are all at the aforementioned conversions. And then comes the average condo price for the neighborhood: $1,423.

Still, for all the mega-listage, there were six listings between $678 and $965 a square foot, relatively inexpensive sums for Beacon Hill. Not for other neighborhoods, though: As Constantine Valhouli at NeighborhoodX points out to us, Beacon Hill's most affordable condo asking ($678 at 5 Myrtle Street) is more expensive than the priciest Jamaica Plain asking ($620 at 156 Green Street).
