The magic number $650,000 is twice the median sales price of condos throughout Massachusetts, according to the latest figures from the Warren Group. We thought it would be good, then, to check out what just below that buys you the City of Boston. Let's start with a 3-BR, 2-BA condo in Charlestown's northern reaches. Unit 3 at 10 Albion Place (pictured above) spreads over 1,260 square feet and wants $649,000.
Moving on, we find a century-old Victorian in Dorchester, at 20 Tremlett Street, asking $649,000 as well. It comes with four bedrooms, three and a half bathrooms, more than 4,000 square feet of living space, and five fireplaces.
If the Dorchester Victorian isn't doing it for you, how's about this Victorian in ever-changing Jamaica Plain? The 4-BR, 1-BA, 1,678-square-foot house at 12 Edge Hill Street off Hyde Square also wants $649,000.
Unit 2 at 49 L Street is new construction in the New South Boston. It's got two bedrooms, two bathrooms, 1,047 square feet and a deck with a gas hookup for grilling. The asking? $649,900.
We close with Unit 4 at 148 Warren Avenue in the always-coveted South End. It's by far the smallest of the bunch: 889 square feet with one bedroom and one bathroom. It's asking $649,000.
