My place is in the South End and the bottom two floors of a brownstone. It was fully renovated 2 years ago. There's a great park across the street and we're 6 blocks from the Prudential Center. It's very walkable to everything, close to the T (Mass Ave, Symphony, Hynes, Prudential), and very close to great restaurants like Five Horses Tavern, House of Siam, Shun's Kitchen, & Render Coffee. Although I couldn't get a good picture, there's a lovely patio out back with a basketball hoop for kids.
