Welcome to Curbed Comparisons, a regular 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! Next up is $750,000 in Boston.
The 119-year-old house at 24 Brainerd Road is on offer for $750,000 even, and has six bedrooms and two bathrooms. It runs to 2,597 square feet, and there’s parking and a garden. The whole thing is a bit of a fixer-upper though.
Unit U609 at 121 Portland Street is a 726-square-foot one-bedroom, one-bathroom in a building that includes concierge service and a fitness center. The tag is $749,999, and there’s a condo fee of $499.54.
In Dorchester’s Neponset area, Unit 2 at 35 Chickatawbut Street is asking $749,900 for its 1,811 square feet, which includes two bedrooms and two and a half bathrooms. The tag—and the $225 condo fee—includes two garage parking spaces below the unit.
Unit 306 at 99 Sumner Street is part of a new waterfront development called the Mark. The 778-square-footer includes one bedroom and one bathroom, and there is storage available for purchase on the same level as the unit. The asking is $749,900, and the condo fee is $532.14.
Unit 4 at 55 East Springfield Street is also new—sort of. It’s a floor-through two-bedroom, one-bathroom by way of a gut-renovation. It runs to 736 square feet. The tag is $749,000, and the condo fee within the four-unit building is $250.
