This 2-BR, 1-BA condo closed on Jan. 22 in a $485,500 deal after not even two months on the market. It last traded way, way back in September 2001 for $354,000. Interestingly, given the rapid change in Southie (why, just ask the cats from Southie Rules—or maybe don't), the 694-square-foot condo rests just around the corner from one of the more ballyhooed recent conversions in the neighborhood, that of the old Gate of Heaven property on 4th Street. Good god, it never ends.
