Including in West Roxbury, the North End, downtown, and Jamaica Plain

A scale. One side of the scale is holding a heart. The other side of the scale is holding a the symbol for money: a dollar sign. The central part of the scale reads Curbed. In the background is a pattern with keys. Illustration.

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! This week, the magic number is $750,000 in Boston.

Unit 6C at 88 Kingston Street in downtown Boston runs to 829 square feet and includes one bedroom and one bathroom. The $750,000 tag also covers a garaged parking space. The condo fee is $378.

In the North End, Unit 4 at 18 Cooper Street offers two bedrooms and one bathroom amid its 809 square feet. The condo fee is $313.

Unit 1 at 2 Cottage Street in South Boston runs to 1,292 square feet and includes two bedrooms as well as two and a half bathrooms. The duplex also has a rear deck. The tag covers a deeded parking space. The precise tag is $749,999 and the condo fee is $216.70.

In West Roxbury, $749,999 buys an entire house: 283 Temple Street, a 1,740-square-foot colonial with four bedrooms and three and a half bathrooms as well as a back deck and a yard.

We end in Jamaica Plain, where another colonial is asking $749,900. The three-bedroom, one-and-a-half-bathroom 16 Malcolm Road is 1,900 square feet and is a bit of a fixer-upper.
