The 1,264-square-foot Unit 3 at 53 Rutland Street in Boston’s busy, busy South End includes vaulted ceiling in the open living room-dining room-kitchen area as well as plenty of exposed beams (if that’s your sort of thing). There’s also a ton of natural light.

But the crowning feature of the duplex penthouse retailing now for $1.5 million is just that: a private roof deck with views of downtown Boston. The condo also comes with deeded parking, central air, and in-unit laundry.

As for that tag through Compass’ Adam Geragosian, it’s on the pricier side for the South End, at least according to the latest available stats. A report that tracked closed deals at the end of 2019 showed a median condo sales price in the neighborhood of $975,000. Stay tuned for start-of-2020 figures.
