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 $900,000.
In Allston, Unit 211 at the year-old 180 Telford Street is asking $899,888. The two-bedroom, two-bathroom runs to 1,115 square feet, and the W/D is brand-new. The $741 condo fee includes access to amenities such as a gym and a shared courtyard.
Now to the upper reaches of the South End, where Unit 1 at 63 Appleton Street is asking $899,000 for its 869 square feet, including two bedrooms and one bathroom. There is also a private patio out back and a W/D inside (obviously). The condo fee is $222.
