BOSTON (MyFoxBoston.com) – How much would you pay to live in Boston’s historic Beacon Hill neighborhood? More importantly how much would you pay for a parking spot there?
A recent listing on Mass Realty asks just that.
With a $650,000 price tag, the spot located at 70 Brimmer St., unit 236 is listed for a whopping $3,800 /sq. ft.
According to the website, spaces first went up for sale as condos in 1979 at a cost of $7,500, and, according to the Bates Real Estate Report blog, in October a spot sold for $390,000.
The garage is located just a block away from Boston Public Garden in one direction and the Hatch Shell in the other. What’s more it’s just a short walk from the State House and all that downtown Boston has to offer.
Regulations say the garage is only open from 6:30 a.m to midnight (1 a.m. on weekends) and “There will be no access to the Garage outside of those hours.”
In addition, cars have to be parked by employees, who must be notified 15 minutes before a car is to be removed.
If you’re a truck or SUV owner this spot is not for you, according to the website vehicles over a certain size are not permitted. In addition, vehicles are not allowed to have roof or rear attachments.
By comparison, the most expensive livable condo listed on Mass Realty is located at 25 Beacon Street. It's listed for $9 million, or roughly $2,500 /sq. ft. It also includes two garage parking spots.
