Gut-renovated Hyde Park house with five bedrooms asks $725,000

It’s a little too expensive to be a starter home, but it’s miles more affordable than similarly sized places farther into town

The 4,448-square-foot house at 5 Christy Lane in Hyde Park, near the Boston-Dedham border, is at $725,000 a little too pricey to be a starter home—even for Boston’s southernmost neighborhood.

But it is much more affordable than similarly sized, even smaller, places farther into town. Head to a neighborhood such as Back Bay, Dorchester, or the South End, and a prospective buyer would be facing a tag well beyond 5 Christy’s $162 a square foot through the Scanlon Real Estate Team.

The house—gut-renovated 15 years back—has five bedrooms and four bathrooms as well as a fenced-in yard and a pool. There’s also central AC and a finished basement.
