Boston price comparison: What $750,000 buys around the city right now

Including JP, Southie, and Charlestown

In the Boston housing market, particularly in downtown, three quarters of a million dollars is not a lot of money.

Nevertheless, the sum can command some pretty nice properties. Our latest Curbed Comparisons proves it.

↑ We start in Jamaica Plain, where Unit 2 at 165 Wachusett Street is asking $750,000 on the nose.

The 10-room, 2,280-square-foot duplex includes two full bathrooms and the potential for four bedrooms as well as a back porch that has views of the Arnold Arboretum during winter.

The condo fee is $300.

↑ In Charlestown, the detached single-family at 60 Cook Street runs to 1,386 square feet and also includes the potential for four bedrooms.

There are one and a half bathrooms as well as a deck in front of a fenced-in yard.

The asking is $750,000 even.

↑ Unit 3 is a duplex spread at 655 East Sixth Street in South Boston.

The 1,170-square-foot two-bedroom, two-bathroom is asking $750K and includes plenty of exposed brick as well as two private decks (back and roof).

The condo fee is $150.

↑ Now to the Leather District, where the bi-level Unit 102 at 121-123 Beach Street is asking $749,000.

The 1,358-square-foot loft—the ceilings run to 15 feet—has one bedroom and one and a half bathrooms

The condo fee is $487.

↑ We’ll end at 80 Broad Street in downtown, where Unit 706 in the full-service building is also asking $749,000.

It’s a 732-square-foot one-bedroom, one-bathroom. The condo fee is $604.
