Top Five: The Most Expensive Homes in the South End

A few weeks ago, I posted Boston’s five most expensive homes for sale, and, not surprisingly, they were all in Back Bay and Beacon Hill. Newton and Brookline had a couple of estates that came close, but not quite enough to break into the top five. Cohasset topped them all with a $16 million estate, but that’s too far away to be part of the city.

The South End didn’t show up in the top five. It didn’t even come close. It probably doesn’t even show up in anywhere in the top twenty. Not long ago, the South End was a dismal neighborhood with nothing going for it except drugs, prostitution and violent crime. Now it has seven-figure home sales, trendy restaurants, and the Mommy Brigade: all signs it’s making a pretty good comeback.
