Somerville price comparison: What $600,000 buys right now

Mostly condos

This recently listed adorable Victorian at 330 Lowell Street in Somerville struck a chord among Curbed Boston readers. Here was a nice-looking house in a desirable locale for a non-astronomical amount of money ($579,000).

That got us to thinking: What else can one buy in Somerville for around—but not more than—$600,000? Our latest Curbed Comparisons answers the question.

↑ An end-unit townhouse at 57 Murdock Street is asking $599,000 right now through Benoit Real Estate. The spread runs to 1,290 square feet, and includes three bedrooms and one bathroom. Two off-street parking spaces come with.

↑ Unit 3B at 386 Washington Street runs to 922 square feet, and includes a pair of bedrooms as well as a bathroom. The main feature is a large private deck, though, with 360-degree views. The asking is $598,000 and the listing brokerage is Gibson Sotheby’s.

↑ The new-construction Unit 3 at 53 Kent Street is a 635-square-foot one-bedroom, one-bathroom with a private roof deck and one garaged parking space. It’s asking $589,900 through the Steve Bremis Team.

↑ Unit 1 at 86 Mount Vernon Street runs to 1,200 square feet, and includes two bedrooms and two bathrooms. There’s also in-unit laundry and a private porch (and two off-street parking spots). The whole shebang wants $584,900 through the Steve Bremis Team.

↑ We end with Unit 10 at 10 Campbell Park. It’s a 757-square-foot 2-BR, 1-BA on the ground floor; and it includes in-unit laundry and basement storage. At least one parking space included, too. All for $549,500 through Craft Realty.
