Where: 299 Tappan Street, #3
Sale Date: Dec. 27
Square Footage: 920
The Skinny: Sure, Brookline isn't the most hospitable place real estate-wise. Or the most affordable. But this 2-BR, 1-BA off Washington Square is as good an entry as any: It's almost eerily designed to appeal to the first-time buyer on a budget, with flourishes like recessed lighting, exposed brick, ceiling fans and built-in shelves, all in a tidy space with plenty of natural light. Oh, and near the Green Line!
