Sunny Cambridge two-bedroom clocks in at under $600,000

The spread in a two-unit property just off Danehy Park also comes with central air

Cambridge is one of the more expensive towns or cities in a Boston region that is expensive overall anyway. Properties in the Boston neighbor can easily run to around $1,000 a square foot, and yet bidding wars are common in the city (or maybe it’s because of those bidding wars that properties run to around $1,000 a square foot).

But along comes Unit 1 at 264 Walden Street near Danehy Park in Cambridge’s western reaches to prove that not everything is super-pricey. The 763-square-footer with central air includes two bedrooms and one bathroom. There’s also access to a yard.

The price tag is $585,000 through Re/Max Destiny—or $766 a square foot. So it’s not exactly cheap, but, for Cambridge, it might be considered a bit of a bargain. A Greater Boston Association of Realtors report, for instance, pegged the median condo sales price for Metro Boston, including Cambridge, at $692,500 in January.
