Louisburg Square

Beacon Hill


Louisburg Square, tucked in the heart of storied Beacon Hill, boasts some of the most desirable real estate in the country. It’s a tiny area that claims its own neighborhood within a neighborhood status. The “square’s” rectangular green space lies between Mt. Vernon and Pinckney Streets, and boasts easy access to the shops of Charles Street, the State House, MGH, and more. The district’s elegant character is enhanced by some of the most stately homes in Boston, including legendary six-level single-family homes.


Louisburg Square lies in the center of the Beacon Hill Neighborhood, and sits flanked between Willow Street and West Cedar Street, with Pinckney Street to the north. Steps away from the old Charles Meeting House and the always-buzzing Paramount Restaurant, Louisburg Square is truly the center of Beacon Hill. The Boston Common is two short blocks to the south, and the city’s financial district is located conveniently (10 minute walk) to the east.


In the desirable Louisburg Square, the real-estate market is characterized by stunning, six-level single-family homes. And inventory is minimal! – just one home, on average, is listed each year. The average will tell you that sellers wait around sixty days for an offer, but insiders know that Louisburg Square properties will often trade off-the market. Look for an average selling price of approximately $1,477 per square foot.


Louisburg Square is for the creme de la creme. There are no discounts to live alongside heads of state and business moguls. The rise of Beacon Hill adds to the lofty nature of these soaring, brick townhomes. The sea of brownstones exude frivolous charm across all four seasons. Residents are well apprised of their role in outfitting their homes with seasonal splendors. Though subdued and peaceful, the streets are rarely empty as the neighborhood beckons wanderlusting tourists and aspirational locals. Conveniences are never far afield in Louisburg Square with plenty of cafes and casual bistros littering nearby Charles Street.
