New England's Oldest Cast-Iron Building Is an Option

The building at 120 Fulton Street in the North End dates from the early 1850s and is considered New England's oldest extant building in the cast-iron style. It once housed an elevator-manufacturing company and has long been a 25-unit condo complex. One of those units, No. 3A, just dropped on the sales market and therefore offers a rare glimpse into the brick-and-beam-and-arched-window wonderland that is 120 Fulton.

The 930-square-foot, third-floor corner unit has two bedrooms and one bathroom, and what to us looks like an immense amount of natural light (those arched windows again). The whole shebang is asking $799,000, with an open house scheduled for this weekend.
