New, 1 comment

Single-families in Roxbury and Hyde Park; condos downtown and elsewhere

Our latest Curbed Comparisons looks at what $800,000 or thereabouts commands in several Boston neighborhoods as summer releases the city from its slimy grip. Come along.

↑ We start at the one-year-old condo complex at 121 Portland Street in downtown. Unit 701 there is asking $799,999 for its 764 square feet, two bedrooms, and two bathrooms. The tag includes outdoor space (and the patio furniture on said outdoor space).

The condo fee is $575.90, which covers amenities such as access to a fitness center and 24-7 concierge.

↑ In Roxbury, $799,900 buys an entire brick Victorian. The 2,378-square-foot 85 Blue Hill Avenue includes four bedrooms and three and a half bathrooms, plus a finished basement and off-street parking.

↑ Now to busy, busy East Boston’s Jeffries Point, where $799,000 buys Unit 2 at 303 Sumner Street, a 1,305-square-foot two-bedroom, two-bathroom in a new-construction building. Rental parking is available nearby. The condo fee is $277.26.

↑ Out in Hyde Park, there’s a newly built colonial for sale at 13 West Milton Place. It runs to 2,744 square feet; and it includes four bedrooms and two and a half bathrooms. It’s asking $799,000.

↑ We end in South Boston, in Unit 203 at 655 East Second Street near East First and L streets. The two-bedroom, two-bathroom runs to 1,092 square feet; and the $799,000 tag includes one garaged parking space. The condo fee is $304.14.
