This quiet, little square is Beacon Hill's poshest location. All of the property owners facing the square own the garden. This square is home to former Sec of State John Kerry, who is married to the heiress of the Heinz ketchup fortune.

Grand houses overlooking a private, communal garden - sounds impressive and exclusive. The private-only parking, red brick sidewalk and cobbles add to the scene as do the typical black window shutters.

It's two street east parallel to Charles Street. It has nice houses on either side of the square, and it's historically one of the most expensive ones in the country. If you are taking time to walk Beacon Hill don't overlook this part.

This place is so tranquil. You need to come her in the morning hours. Surrounded by period apartments. Definitely a must.

Robin Cook, John Kerry and others have called this area home. Watch where you walk because the tree roots break up the sidewalk. If you are familiar with some parts of Brooklyn, Philadelphia or Baltimore, you may get a sense of deja vu.
