Cozy Commonwealth Ave. 1-BR asking more than $1,000 a foot

Hasn’t sold since 1997

The 665-square-foot Unit 1 at 167 Commonwealth Avenue last traded way back in August 1997 for around $270,000 in today’s money (those were the days).

It’s now on the market for $699,000—one of several solid options in Boston for around $700,000—and it looks very lived-in ... in a good way. That is, the clearly cozy spread retains the charm of its building’s 1890s bones, not least because of that fireplace.

Have a look around.
