The square footage on this townhouse on Washington Street near the John Harvard Mall makes us think that the space is, well, spacious. No curved lenses for these listing photos, no sirree, not with 3,052 square feet unfolding over just two bedrooms and three bathrooms (though, we readily acknowledge a buyer could spin more bedrooms out of the place, but still...). And that doesn't include a fenced-in brick patio, plus spacious deck. As well, the house has the usual amenities: convection wall ovens in a chef's kitchen; a living room with working fireplace that opens to a library and/or study for that unquantifiable pretentious look; detailing dating from the late 19th century. Wide open as of earlier this month for $1,589,000 (or barely $520 a square foot).
