The bones of the house at 38 Lee Street in Jamaica Plain date from 1835, but the spread has of course been updated and expanded over the past 185 years. That included a large family room with cathedral ceilings added in 2006 and central air-conditioning installed in 2017.
The house comes with other touches, too, including an antique stove and a sizable lawn, at least by Boston standards—which should not be a surprise given that 38 Lee is in JP.
The 1,556-square-foot house with two bedrooms and two bathrooms is retailing right now through Coldwell Banker for $899,000. The median sales price for a Boston house in January was $655,000, according to the latest figures from the Greater Boston Association of Realtors.
