Welcome to Curbed Comparisons, a regular column that explores what one can rent or buy for a set dollar amount (or thereabouts) in the Boston area. Is one woman’s studio another’s townhouse? Let’s find out! Next up is $850,000 in different Boston neighborhoods.
The 2,500-square-foot colonial at 222R Dana Avenue in Boston’s southernmost neighborhood went up just this year. It has four bedrooms and two and a half bathrooms, as well as a fenced-in yard, a deck, and central air. There’s also garage parking for one.
Unit 4 at 54 Pleasant Street in Dot’s Savin Hill is also new construction. The 1,247-square-foot two-bedroom, two-bathroom with central air is part of a 17-unit project that went up in 2019. The tag and the $394.33 HOA includes a heated parking space.
The 1,050-square-foot Unit 1 at 80a West Cedar Street is a rare three-bedroom in Beacon Hill for under seven figures. The duplex also has three full bathrooms and in-unit laundry. (“Motivated seller,” apparently, according to the listing.) The HOA is $467.24.
Unit 2C at 293-295 Commonwealth Avenue is a 793-square-foot two-bedroom, one-bathroom on the second floor of a brownstone. The HOA is $432.05.
The $849,900 tag for Unit 1R at 220 Commercial Street covers a separate attached commercial space with two offices and a sitting area. The condo itself runs to 1,495 square feet, and includes one bedroom and one bathroom. There’s central air too. The HOA is $683.
