A Marlborough Toe-Dipper That's Kind of a Steal

Here now, a special Renters Week 2012 edition of From Curbed Marketplace, highlighting an intriguing real estate listing from the many thousands of properties found in the Curbed Marketplace. Browsing the Marketplace and spot a property worthy of being featured? Drop it to the tipline.

This 1-BR, 1-BA near the Copley stop of the Green Line is one snug number. It's nothing like the grand townhouses and duplexes and floor-throughs we might associate with prime Back Bay. But what of it? It's a 700-square-foot starter rental asking $2,750 a month, which is a bit of a deal, considering the median rent for downtown Boston rests somewhere around $3,136.
