This stairwell between the 1-BR, 1-BA Back Bay condo and a private roof deck interjects itself into the scene like a drunk at a Christmas party. We're O.K. with that.

Asking Price: $1,049,000

Stop. Stop right there. This stark, almost post-modern well connecting this 2-BR, 1.5-BA Jamaica Plain loft looks to have everything: style, utilitarianism, even a shiny buff to bounce natural light off. Bravo!
