Where: 7 Worcester Square
Square Footage: 4,600
The Skinny: The kitchen in this South End townhouse makes us wish we cooked more than boiled eggs and dehydrated apple slices. Designed to the specifications of owner Christopher Kimball, he of Cook's Illustrated and America's Test Kitchen fame, it's a knock-out of charming functionality—19th-century self-sufficient sustenance meets 21st-century foodie self-indulgence. And the rest of the house? Well, O.K., there are 7 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms and five floors with roughly 950 square feet each, plus a basement. Everything last traded in 1991 for $370K.
