Micro-Living in Boston's Most Famous 'Hood, Back Bay

View as Map

There are a couple of things that come to mind when people think of Back Bay in Boston: strolling along tree-lined streets and the multitude of shopping and dining in the area. The reality of buying in this neighborhood is not so picturesque, with smallish living space accompanied by not-so-small price tags. This week's open house tour features homes under 1,000 square feet and ranging from $1.25M to $549K. The upside to it all is that with all the things to do in the neighborhood, you won't be home much anyway.
