The colonial at 75 Preble Street near the Red Line’s Andrew stop in South Boston looks a lot bigger than its 708 square feet. Besides, there’s outdoor space, including a deck, and a 300-square-foot unfinished basement.
The house—a rare enough find in that nook of Boston—has one bedroom and one bathroom. It also has a stark backsplash in the kitchen and gorgeous hardwood throughout. There’s a washer-dryer too.
It’s all the product of a significant renovation in 2005. The bones of 75 Preble date from 1890.
Oh, and the price: It’s asking $569,900—or $804 a square foot—through Compass. The latter is competitive for Boston houses in general. A Greater Boston Association of Realtors report covering closed deals in January pegged the median house price at $655,000. The average price per square foot, though, was $413.
