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’s townhouse? Let’s find out! Next up is $600,000 in Dorchester, Boston’s largest neighborhood.
A parking space and basement storage come with Unit 1 at 112 King Street, a two-bedroom, two-bathroom condo asking $590,000. The 994-square-foot spread also includes a new private deck. The condo fee is $113.
The $595,000 tag for Unit 2 at 23 Ely Road covers a private garage with two spaces. The 2,206-square-foot condo includes three bedrooms and one bathroom. The condo fee is not available.
