About Back Bay

Back Bay real estate is best exemplified by its elegant brownstone homes on quiet Marlborough Street and stately Commonwealth Avenue. In the 19th century, Back Bay attracted the wealthiest members of society who had some of the most noteworthy architects of the time design and build their new homes. Most of those buildings still stand today. Many of these brownstones have been totally renovated into luxurious modern single family homes and condominiums. If you are looking for a larger, full-service luxury condo building, here are some of the best luxury buildings in the Back Bay.
