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.
