Welcome to Curbed Comparisons, a weekly column that explores what one can rent or buy for a set dollar amount (or thereabouts) in the Boston area. Is one woman’s studio another woman’s townhouse? Let’s find out! Today, the magic number is $800,000 in Quincy, Boston’s southern neighbor.
We start in West Quincy, where $499,900 buys a 1,472-square-foot colonial single-family at 38 Greenview Street with three bedrooms and one and a half bathrooms. There’s a backyard and a back deck.
In Quincy’s Marina Bay, $499,000 buys a 1,262-square-foot two-bedroom, two-bathroom condo with a balcony at 100 Marina Drive. The price covers two garaged parking spaces. The condo fee for Unit 303 is $728.
The cottage at 8-10 Shoreside Road in Houghs Neck is being marketed essentially as a redevelopment—or at least a serious renovation—opportunity. The 1,654-square-foot, three-bedroom, two-bathroom single-family, with the land around it, is asking $499,000.
Unit 2304 at 10 Seaport Drive is another Marina Bay listing. Its 1,116 square feet include two bedrooms and two bathrooms. The $489,900 tag—and the $466 condo fee—cover access to amenities such as a gym and a shuttle to the Red Line.
We end at 80 Arthur Street in the South Quincy-West Quincy borderlands. Unit 1 there is asking $489,000 for its 1,250 square feet, two bedrooms, and two and half bathrooms. The end-unit townhouse’s price includes two garaged parking spaces. The condo fee is $100.
