Weekend Open House Tour: the Common as Your Backyard

View as Map

Boston is touted as America's most walkable big city, but how walkable is it? We used one of Boston's oldest and most prominent landmarks (out of a few dozen), Boston Common, as a starting point to map out open houses in a half-mile radius. Surprisingly, we found homes that range from the low end of half a million to $3M-plus. From renovated historic red brick homes to newish full-service buildings, having the Common as your backyard may be the best feature of them all.
