This week's open house tour happens to be in Back Bay, one of Boston's most architecturally rich and desirable neighborhoods. The featured homes, all clocking in under $1,500,000, feature fireplaces, period details and upgrades to comfortably suit 21st-century living. And these are all within a half-mile radius of each other, so put on your walking shoes and take a stroll this weekend though Back Bay. Better get moving, too, because while Back Bay is known for the odd monster trades, listings in this price range don't last very long.
