125 Mt. Vernon Street. The Old Charles Street Meeting House.
I was looking at new listings yesterday and this one popped up. I have to say I have yet to see this, but it looks pretty unique and unlike anything else that usually comes up in Boston. It looks like it could use some updating, but how much is the question. You are definitely paying for location and history, but at $1225 per sf, we will have to see if it gains that $4.9 million asking price.
Before seeing this listing I did not know of the history of this building, but it is definitely rich with everything Boston history is all about. Wikipedia and iBoston have a good brief history description of this home and gives a little insight into the 1980’s restoration and renovation.
All photos are from MLS and the listing is offered by Bruce Mclean of Coldwell Banker.

Here is a clip I found about Boston’s Molasses Disaster. Thought i’d put it up on my blog because it’s a pretty interesting story and a good clip.
Battery Wharf is one of the more recent luxury developments in Boston’s Waterfront neighborhood. The views are amazing and the amenities are plentiful. The other thing that is equally notable is the history behind this wonderful location. I am always looking around Youtube for interesting videos and i came across this historical clip of Battery Wharf. If you are considering moving to this location, or if you already live here, its good to know Boston’s history of this location which dates back over 350 years.
