When you think Boston, you think Beacon Hill. The historic neighborhood is lined with the iconic Federal-style rowhouses along its narrow streets. Gaslit lamps line the brick sidewalks, and the gold dome of the Massachusetts State House can be seen between the trees at the top of the hill. Which is all to say, it's a beautiful neighborhood. These Beacon Hill homes are beautiful inside and out, too.

67 Mount Vernon St.

Mount Vernon Street has pretty much always been home to decadent, expensive housing, even as far back as the early 1800s, and this duplex is no exception. At $1.75 million, the spacious penthouse takes over the entire top two floors of a Beacon Hill row house. Within the 1,636 square feet there are two bedrooms, a study and a large living room with a wood burning fireplace. Plenty of windows fill the home with natural light and great views of the neighborhood, including a picture window is the study that looks right onto the Hill and the Charles River. If you want even more scenery, head up to the private roof deck, which, according to the listing, is situated at one of the highest points in the neighborhood, so you really get the most out of living in Beacon Hill.
