What You Get for Under $1.5M in Back Bay Right Now

View as Map

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.
