Perhaps only in the Boston area can a house marketing itself as a cottage retail for $875,000.

The 1,081-square-foot 673 Hammond Street in Brookline’s slice of Chestnut Hill does just that. The three-bedroom, one-and-half-bathroom property is on sale as a “cottage” through Hammond Residential.

And, given the location and the look of the place, the $875K tag does not seem all that unreasonable or odd. Plus, an abutting cottage-slash-farmhouse sold last year for $899,000. Touches such as the surrounding yard, the parking for three, and the decorative stove in the living room seem to only bolster the asking, which is not unusual for Brookline.

What’d you think?
