Tiny Beacon Hill one-bedroom packs a lot in

The price, though, pencils out to more than $1,200 a square foot—such is the Boston market for now

Unit 3F at 16 Hancock Street, a nine-unit building in super-historic Beacon Hill dating from 1880, is only 430 square feet. But it packs a lot in via closet and cabinetry space—and the sole bedroom is a bonafide bedroom, not an alcove as in some studios.

The price, though, is very Beacon Hill: Unit 3F is asking $550,000—or $1,279 a square foot—through Keller Williams’ Jonathan Mathews.

At the end of 2019, Beacon Hill condos were going for an average sales price of $1,433 a square foot, according to a report from appraiser Miller Samuel and brokerage Douglas Elliman. Might such figures—and askings such as the one for Unit 3F—come down due to the novel coronavirus pandemic fallout? They might. Or maybe not. Stay tuned.
