Boston Rent for Renovated Properties: What $5,000/Month Gets You

Including in Back Bay, Charlestown, and the South End


Boston is one of the few cities in North America where $5,000 a month is not a gobsmackingly astronomical amount of rent. Still, the sum can lease quite a bit of quality, including recently renovated flats just about anywhere in town. Our latest Curbed Comparisons is a Renovation Week special: renovated apartments available for $5,000 or thereabouts.

↑ First up is Unit 401 at 75 Clarendon in the South End-Back Bay borderlands. The 1,000-square-foot 2-BR, 1-BA comes with exposures on three sides, in-unit laundry, and a private deck. Recently renovated, it's asking $5,000 even a month.


↑ The top-floor Unit 2 at 3 Mount Vernon Square in Beacon Hill has a private deck and in-unit laundry, too. Its recent overhaul left it with brand-new cork flooring, among other touches. The 1,200-square-foot 2-BR, 2-BA wants $4,950 a month.

↑ Smackdab in the middle of Charlestown is Unit 1 at 20 Cedar. Recently renovated, it's a snug 661-square-foot 1-BR, 1-BA. The tag? $4,900 a month.

↑ Unit 3 at 180 North Street in the North End includes a new kitchen and a new bathroom. It has the potential, too, for up to four bedrooms. There is one bathroom and the rent is $4,800.

↑ The 3-BR, 1-BA penthouse at 61 Marlborough Street in Back Bay includes a private roof deck as well as a renovated kitchen (note the cabinetry). Unit 9 is asking $4,800.
