Bright Lights for Winter Nights: Boston Waterfront Real Estate

By

When you want the most luxurious place to live in Boston, look no farther than the waterfront area. The charming properties lining the waterfront on all sides of downtown Boston bring you the best in luxury living, top location, and a great view of the Boston harbor lit up every night. Look in a few areas to find the right property to purchase in Boston so you can enjoy the best the city has to offer in dining, neighborhood attractions and modern living.

Back Bay luxury apartments and homes are situated in a great location, just off the Charles River and near plenty of Boston attractions. Living in Back Bay, you will be just a few minutes’ walk away from historic Copley Square, which is home to Old Trinity Church, the Boston Public Library and the John Hancock Tower, which is the tallest skyscraper in New England.

The area is the most desirable in Boston, with a great view and plenty of shopping and entertainment. The federal-style rowhouses will charm you with their old-world character and high-end renovations.

For the best waterfront views, North End is the place to be. This neighborhood, situated just north of downtown, features the historic Paul Revere House and the Old North Church, but has all sorts of modern amenities as well. North End condos are in easy walking distance of over 100 restaurants and have a great view of several wharfs along the Boston waterfront.

Just south of North End, you will find Rowes Wharf, a strip of luxury residences, restaurants and hotels on the water just east of downtown Boston.

Happy couple in love in their new home

Finding Love is Like Find the Perfect Home

You may not realize it, but finding the perfect Boston luxury home is actually a lot like find the perfect mate!

Finding true love and finding a home you will truly love, both start with you looking for something that will be in your future.  Like dating, when you search for a new home, you go searching for something attractive, comfortable, and even sexy.  There are certain criteria or conditions to be met like size/heart, how many rooms/weight, date built/age, updated appliances/nip-tuck, missing shingles/hair loss, etc.

Each home has its upside and downside just like each date.  Is it a warm place/does he have heart?  Are there too many stairs/is she understanding?  Can I hear the neighbors through the walls/is he listening to me?

So you keep searching and dating, then finally, you find it!  The perfect Boston home and the perfect person.

If you need help find a Back Bay condo or Beacon Hill condo, or want to tour luxury homes for sale on Boston’s Waterfront or North End, contact CL Waterfront Properties LLC.

Happy Valentine’s Day!

Most Romantic Boston Restaurants

By

Most couples make it a priority to get out of the house and have a ‘Date Night’ on Valentine’s Day, something the can get lost over time.

Barlola in a great date spot for Valentine's Day in Boston

Tapas are a Good Date Idea

The city of Boston is saturated with restaurants of all kinds!  You and your Valentine can enjoy some American cuisine such as Union Bar & Grill in the South End, or Towne in Back Bay.  Tapas/ small plates style restaurants are really popular, such as Cuchi Cuchi or Dali in Cambridge, Barlola in Back Bay, and the Ristorante Damiano in the North End.  If French foods are more what you had in mind, Sel de la Terre has locations in Back Bay and a new Waterfront location as well, or take a trip to Beacon Hill Bistro in Beacon Hill.  Moroccan cuisine makes a unique evening at hot spots like Tangierino in Charlestown.  Of course Italian cuisine is extremely popular, such as Tresca and Prezza in the North End.

Let’s face it; Italian cuisine is the obvious choice for 99% of people going out on Feb. 14th!  The North End/ Waterfront area provides you with the ultimate setting for a Valentine’s Date Night!  The smell of garlic, pastries and espresso in the air, little Italian men selling roses on the street, the violin player making his way to every table in any restaurant that will have him, and the vibe on one of Boston’s most historic streets Hanover just adds to the perfect back drop for the night.

Marco, Best Date Restaurant

Marco, Best Date Restaurant

One of the best North End/Waterfront locations to make the night special is in a tiny restaurant of 10 tables, a stone fireplace, and the feeling of actually being in Italy –Marco.  Marco is hidden on the second floor located at 253 Hanover St, above Café Paradiso.  When you call to make your reservation, make sure you ask for the table near the front window and fireplace, your date will be VERY IMPRESSED.

Once you have finished dinner, make your way onto Hanover Street to one of Boston’s most historic landmarks – Mike’s Pastries – for a cannoli.  If an after-dinner glass of wine is your choice, Bricco on Hanover Street or the wine bar located on Richmond St – Vinoteca di Monica, are the perfect stop!  After a big meal and a few glasses of wine, a great way to wake up for the trip home is to sit and finish the night with an espresso at Boston’s first Italian Café – Caffe Victoria on Hanover St in the North End.

Enjoy your Valentine’s Day and make is special for that someone in your life!
