What $3M Buys Now in the Back Bay-South End Borderlands

View as Map

Back Bay and the South End are no strangers to multi-million-dollar homes, especially in that area where the neighborhoods meet. In fact, one might consider a home for $3,000,000 in either enclave somewhat affordable compared with the multitude of seven-figure asking prices in the area. This week's open house features restrained traditional brownstones and an eclectic sixth-floor spread (that recently slashed its price to below $3M). Each newly renovated and awaiting a new homeowner, too.
