Top-floor North End spread with harbor views asks $795,000

It’s not quite a starter home in one of Boston’s most historic neighborhoods, but it’s close

Given its location alone, it can be hard to find a starter home in Boston’s North End—a spread in decent shape and not asking too much vis a vis the neighborhood’s median condo sales price as of 2020 of $732,000.

Unit 5 at 59 Fleet Street highlights this reality. The 792-square-foot spread with harbor views from pretty much every room is asking $795,000 through Redfin.

The corner unit with one bedroom and one bathroom—as well as a washer-dryer—is in a building dating from 1900 and carries an HOA fee of $477. What’d you think?
