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 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.
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.
