Would you like to know more about Royal Street?
Here is the Royal Street website:

Are you from out of town? Allston is West Boston, a part of the city of Boston. Allston is connected to Back Bay and Fenway neighborhoods by Commonwealth Ave., Storrow Drive and the Mass. Pike [90]. As you move from Back Bay to North Allston, or Lower Allston as it is sometimes called, the houses change from traditional brownstone row houses to a mix of 1880 - 1920 Victorian wood houses.


See what past tenants have said about living here:


You really have been awesome...I will very much miss Royal
Street so thank you for everything you've done for me.
It really was a great place to live!


Richard - It's Katie ... from a few years ago!

I was coming up to Boston the weekend of July 14-16...
I will get in touch with you closer to the date if you
are going to be around. Hope all is well with you! Tell
Victoria I said hi!!!

(fyi, 47 Royal Street is still my 'most favorite'
apartment ever!!!)



Hi Richard and Victoria,

I'm very, very sad to let you know that we will not be renewing
our lease for our apartment.

I really wanted to let you know how much we have really loved being
your tenants, but even more importantly your neighbors. I hope that
I can keep in touch with you and (Victoria...) stop by your garden
in the Fenway once in a while! We can share vegetables and I can
bring some cupcakes.


Sara (and Chris & Carlos)

Richard and Victoria,

First, let me say thank you all for being so accommodating. I love my
apartment, and I am truly fortunate to have such considerate and
responsive landlords.

I hope you all have a wonderful holiday that is full of cheer.


Richard and Victoria,

I had never lived in a place as long as I lived on Royal Street.
Thanks for treating me like family.
