This quiet, little square is Beacon Hill's poshest location. All of the property owners facing the square own the garden. This square is home to former Sec of State John Kerry, who is married to the heiress of the Heinz ketchup fortune.

Grand houses overlooking a private, communal garden - sounds impressive and exclusive. The private-only parking, red brick sidewalk and cobbles add to the scene as do the typical black window shutters.

It's two street east parallel to Charles Street. It has nice houses on either side of the square, and it's historically one of the most expensive ones in the country. If you are taking time to walk Beacon Hill don't overlook this part.

Beacon Hill
Visit this historic and ritzy Boston neighborhood to
soak up its classic New England charm as you stroll
down cobblestoned, gas-lamp lined streets. Bring your
walking shoes, camera, and select a nice day to wander
through the hilly neighborhood and check out its
exclusive addresses. Louisburg Square, Mt. Vernon
street, Chestnut street and the extremely narrow and
widely photographed Acorn street make a nice walking
