Open House Weekend Tour: Quintessential South End Summers

View as Map

It's Labor Day Weekend and maybe your last weekend to enjoy summer, so take a stroll through one of Boston's quintessential neighborhoods—before it changes its look from classic brownstones to steel and glass towers. While the city might seem deserted around this time of year, the real estate market has not taken a vacation so there is plenty for you to see. A few of these classic brownstone buildings might be short on living space, but the close proximity to some of the best restaurants and art galleries (you are in the South End, by the way) makes up for it. Buying into this neighborhood can set you back anywhere from $399,000 to $1,850,000, though. Your call.
