Bright Brookline contemporary with three bedrooms asks under $900,000

In the same neighborhood in the same town where Tom Brady’s asking $33 million-plus there’s a humbler yet very nice spread for sale

As the known universe awaits the mid-March free agency of Tom Brady, along comes 749 Heath Street in Brookline’s slice of Chestnut Hill to remind everyone that not all housing in the tony town is as titanically pricey as No. 12’s Woodland Road estate.

Recall that Brady and wife Gisele Bündchen are asking $33.9 million for their custom-built 5-acre estate, also in Chestnut Hill. A sale or lack thereof might signal Brady’s intentions re: returning to the New England Patriots next season.

Meanwhile, we’ve got 749 Heath, a townhouse-like contemporary with three bedrooms, two and a half bathrooms, and not a hefty price tag by Brookline standards. The 2,060-square-foot home is asking $899,000 through Hammond Residential. What’d you think?

The condo’s asking per square foot is $436 and change.

The townhouse-like home dates from 1984.

The condo is part of a two-unit property.
A bedroom with a high ceiling and a bed, and there’s lots of natural light.
There are three bedrooms.

It’s appropriate that a Heath Street home should have some greenspace.
