Introducing 1 Melrose Street unit 1 located in Bay Village. Many folks look at Bay Village and think it looks a lot like Beacon Hill without the hill, and they are not wrong to think that. Many of the architecture you can find in Beacon Hill you can often find in Bay Village since many of the builders who built Beacon Hill lived in Bay Village. When people first started to build in Bay Village they were restricted on how high they could build homes and the type of material they could use which is why many of the homes in Bay Village are not larger and were often made of brick and often with a granite foundation. Most Bay Village buildings were constructed between 1825 and 1899 and represent a variety of architectural styles, ranging from Federal to Greek Revival to Victorian.
Bay Village is also very unique because unlike its surrounding neighborhoods which have both residential and commercial around them Bay Village is 95% Residential and only 5 % commercial space. Another unique thing about the neighborhood unlike other neighborhoods like Back Bay and South End most of the time if you don’t live in Bay Village or aren’t visiting someone who lives in the neighborhood your unlikely to cut through the neighborhood which makes it feel very private and is often very quiet regardless what street you live in. Bay Village also since its small often doesn’t have the same issues with parking that South End and Back Bay may have. Residents can often find parking and there are even visitor spots. Many Residents in Bay Village park their car and don’t move it much since they can often walk to South End, Back Bay, Theater District and Chinatown.
