Scattered among the charming brownstones are a bounty of distinctive restaurants and unique boutiques, especially on East Berkeley and Washington streets, along with many cultural gems to explore.

The South End continues to be one of the hottest neighborhoods for real estate sales in Boston. Among the latest homes to get new owners, Unit 3 at 219 Shawmut Ave. sold on March 29 for $1,760,000. The home was listed by Steven Cohen Team of Keller Williams Realty and bought with Cuiyun Ruan of JC Realty.

This delightful South End home sits in the very popular 8 Streets Neighborhood of the South End, considered to be one of the most convenient places to live in Boston. The 8 Streets Neighborhood Association defines this area as all of Dwight, Taylor, Milford, Bond, Hanson and Ringgold streets embraced by Waltham Avenue from Tremont to Washington, the odd numbered side of East Berkeley from Tremont to Shawmut, plus the even numbered side of Tremont Street (from 500 through 560) and all of Shawmut Avenue (from 211 through 304) running from East Berkeley to the alley between Waltham and Union Park. To round out the character of the area, the association has also adopted Bradford Street, Union Park and Upton Street.

This lovely neighborhood is dotted with multiple green spaces. Ringgold and Peters parks feature playground amusements, sports courts and ball fields, plus lots of benches and picnic tables scattered in the sun and shade.

While Ringgold is often considered a hidden gem and a Halloween hotspot, Peters Park is bigger and boasts the South End’s largest dog park.

The Berkeley Community Garden is a special place to enjoy the colorful array of plants and flowers along with delicious fruits and vegetables. You can also demonstrate your own green thumb, if you’re lucky enough to win the early spring lottery for a complementary plot.

All this and much more, many within walking distance, is available in the South End for the new residents to enjoy when not at home, work or school.

The home itself is a 1,625-square-foot treasure that affords three bedrooms and two baths, plus gleaming hardwood floors and recessed lighting throughout – all on the third floor.

The large kitchen showcases grand stainless steel appliances and generous cabinet space and countertops inviting the chef(s) and baker(s) to have a great time whipping up fine feasts and decadent desserts. A convenient breakfast bar is available to keep the culinary artists company or to enjoy an informal meal.

Family and guests will feel special, enjoying those sumptuous gourmet creations in the dining room. A door leading to the deck that overlooks the community gardens and offers a dazzling view of the skyline expands the entertaining area.

The master suite was designed for comfort and convenience. The roomy bedchamber provides a haven for rest and renewal. The very large walk-in closet was customized to handle the practical needs.

The spacious en suite bath was crafted to satisfy the sensual desires. This lavish room hosts a separate soaking tub to relax and melt the tensions of the day away, an oversized walk-in glass enclosed shower with multiple shower heads to invigorate and inspire and a long vanity with two sinks to handle other appeals.

The new owners will also enjoy one direct access parking space behind building.
