THE AFTERLIFE OF 20TH CENTURY’S OF TIMES AND A TIME PORTAL TO STREET. AS YOU KNOW, WE AT CHRONICLE LOVE EXPLORING BOSTON’S STREETS AND BEACON IS A BEAUTY. CRISSCROSSES COMMONWEALTH AVENUE AND KENMORE SQUARE THEN WINDS ITS WAY THROUGH A HALF-DOZEN BUSTLING NEIGHBORHOODS THAT RIPPLE ALL THE WAY OUT TO NEWTON LIKE THE DISTRICTS OF PARIS. WE BEGIN OUR HE CA STREET TRACK ON A BLOCK OPPOSITE GARDEN. THE STAGGERI ESCALATION IN THE PRICES OF RESIDENTIAL BUILDINGS TELLS YOU WHY A LOW NUMBER OF — THE MOST COVETED. THE FIRST PIECE OF REAL ESTATE I SOLD WAS 73 BEACON STREET. AND IN 2014 SOLD FOR ONE IT HAD APPRECIATED. GEORGE VALENTINE SHOWED US A CONDOMINIUM ON THE MARKET OF 81 $4.4 MILLION. BATH AND HAS 3100 SQUARE FEET OF LIVING SPACE. GREAT SEPARATION BETWEEN PUBLIC SPACE IN THE FORMAL ROOM, DOORS BETWEEN THE DINING ROOM AND LIVING ROOM. AND JUST LOOKING FROM HERE AT CAN SEE THE POND.
