Just recently Rick and I watched in its’ entirety, all 11 seasons, 275 episodes, of the television sitcom Cheers. And while we had fun listening to Carla’s timely cutdowns, especially towards Diane, it mostly made me reminisce of a fall break trip we took to Boston a few years back!

First off, Boston is fabulous, if you have not been, please make a point. Here are just a few of our favorite Boston spots!
- Museum of Fine Arts Boston
- The Mary Baker Eddy Library
⇒While at the library, look across the street for the hidden Bodega. Just walk up to the Snapple machine!
- For another GORGEOUS hidden gem, make reservations at Yvonne’s.
- Oysters are a must, try Neptune’s!
- And while there are a ton of history tours, we chose a walking PIZZA tour of the North End and had a blast!

While I could go on and on about all the fun things we did that I highly suggest you check out, I’d love to give you a more intimate tour of the city’s famous neighborhood, which just happens to be home of the beloved bar, Cheers!

Dubbed one of the most photographed streets in the country, Acorn Street in Beacon Hill looks very similar today as it did when the 19th century trades and artisans lived in colonial Boston. The cobblestone streets lined with perfectly preserved brownstones, gas street lamps and charming front doors is what makes Beacon Hill one of the most prestigious neighborhoods.

This is our least expensive home but boast wonderful amenities. Built in 1890, this property just happens to overlook Acorn Street! It has been updated, but love how they have left original moldings in place as well as the faux painted marble baseboards in the living room.
Stats: $2,825,000.00 / Built 1890 / 2,065 sq ft / 3 Bedroom, 3 Bath / Favorite Feature: Private Roof Deck!
Greek Revival at it’s best for this five floors plus a roof top cupola. It also seems to have a fabulous and reasonable price tag attached to it! The best part of this one? It has such wonderful bones, updating these furnishings to modern day will be a breeze!
Stats: $7,975,000.00 / Built 1837 / 3,484 sq ft / 6 Bedroom, 5 Bath / Favorite Feature: Massive Kitchen Skylights!!
Boasting 5000+ square feet of private garden, over 60 windows and three exposure sides, this gem is our oldest home to feature. Although this one has been updated just a little too contemporary for me in some areas, the opportunity to have practically a freestanding home in Beacon Hill would make me look twice!
Stats: $15,000,000.00 / Built 1803 / 5,662 sq ft / 6 Bedroom, 9 Bath / Favorite Feature: Historic Oriel Window
This one is by far my favorite. Six levels with a bow front, all the way to the top, draped perfectly with a climbing vine this property conveniently comes with two street front private parking spots. Laundry on three levels, wine cellar and panoramic views from the roof. It’s got it all folks!

Corner lot townhouse!! This is our largest home and it does not disappoint. It has been completely updated and is nothing less of sophisticated luxury. Comes with a valet garage space, high end finishes and an open floor plan! Truly a rare find in Beacon Hill!
