Last month, Homes.com compiled the five priciest streets to live on in 15 major US cities, including Boston. The data revealed that those looking to spend big bucks could drop roughly $2,600,000 to $4,800,000 million here.

Homes.com used its internal data to calculate the average home value. The costliest blocks were Louisburg Square ($4,761,261), Charles River Square ($4,033,437), Union Street ($2,856,322), Liberty Drive ($2,805,535), and a Back Bay section of Commonwealth Avenue East ($2,639,645).
