The bones of the 15-room, 3,767-square-foot colonial at 14 Myrtle Street in Jamaica Plain date from the 1850s, but the house has been thoroughly updated in a contemporary style.
It includes six bedrooms and four bathrooms as well as a sizable yard and a proximity to Jamaica Pond. The house also retains some of the original hardwood floors, and the third floor is built out enough for a conversion to an in-law or other suite.
The spread does not come cheap: It’s on sale through the Muncey Group at Re/Max Destiny for $2.145 million. Then again, at $569.42 a square foot, that could be considered a downright steal for modern Boston, especially for a house.
