The 24-unit condo building at 373 Commonwealth Avenue where Back Bay starts to meet the Fenway/Kenmore Square area dates from the early 1890s. Its Unit 302 retains vestiges of that birth, including in some of the hardwood flooring and part of the fireplace mantel.
But what really pops about the place—on sale now through Keller Williams’ Stephen Chase for $839,000—are some of the bright crown moldings and the ceilings, particularly in the two bedrooms. The condo also has one bathroom as well as large closets in said bedrooms.
As for that price, it’s tricky to analyze. Taken as whole, the $839,000 is probably on the north side of what Boston condos go for now. A Greater Boston Association of Realtors report for January pegged the median condo price at $700,000. The same report, though, said units that month sold for $812 a square foot. Unit 302 is asking $445.
