The redone spread near the Porter Square Red Line stop makes good use of its space

The floor-through Unit 2 at 8 Cambridge Terrace in Cambridge’s Porter Square area makes solid use of its 1,022 square feet. Check out the arrangement of the washer-dryer next to the fridge and below a nifty wine rack.

What’s more, the double-wide living room is the result of a wall taken down—which could be restored to make the spread a three-bedroom rather than a two-bedroom, as it is currently. Unit 2 also comes with a bathroom and with two decks.

And, while its $779,000 tag through Commonwealth Standard Realty Advisors might seem hefty, it’s kind of in line with what Cambridge condos are trading for as of the start of 2020. The median condo sales price in January for the immediate Boston region, including Cambridge, was $692,500, according to the Greater Boston Association of Realtors.

The average sales price per square foot for condos was $700. Unit 2 is retailing for $762. What’d you think?
