The Skinny: This 2-BR, 1-BA condo in a Back Bay building with bones from the 1880s went for about what you'd expect, according to Trulia. Similar homes have sold for an average of $622,650 recently. (Above is a YouTube of the apartment. The age we live in.)

The Skinny: This pricey South End puppy has a downstairs neighbor that happens to be the most expensive non-Back Bay, non-Beacon Hill listing in Boston. This 2-BR, 3-BA is no slouch itself selling for above the sales-price average of $1,383,333 for similar homes, according to Trulia. No easy trek to Dunkin Donuts, however.
Address: 43 Mount Vernon Street #5
Square Footage: 1,200
The Skinny: This 2-BR, 3-BA Beacon Hill condo blew right past the average price for other similar homes sold recently ($896,500), according to Trulia. Also, it's in a building dating from 1899, 100 years after the death of George Washington, whose Virginia estate gave the street its name. So there's that.
