This freshly built townhouse off Linden Avenue near Porter Square shares property space with the Isaac Story House, the one-time home of the judge and legislator who lived in Somerville for much of the late 19th century. While there is that history, the new townhouse (one of two at 9 Linden) is thoroughly modern. The kitchen's Martha Stewart-branded, for one thing, and there's central air and heat as well as two parking spaces. More than that, the spread is debuting in a rapidly changing (read: gentrifying) Somerville. The 1,440-square-foot, 3-BR, 2.5-BA townhouse wants $950,000. That's barely $659 a square foot. Too much for even the New Somerville? Just right? Too little?
