Open House Weekend Tour: Living in the Old South End

View as Map

Is it too soon to call present-day, as we-know-it South End the Old South End? With swaths of the area undergoing a radical transformation, parts of it will soon look nothing like the rows of brownstones we now know. While we impatiently wait for these developments to take shape, let's not forget about what makes the South End a desirable place to live in the first place. The renovated and restored brownstones, dating back to the 19th century, serve up luxury and historical charm all in one. To make it easier to choose from, we're just browsing under the $1 million mark.
