1 Summer St
Somerville, MA 02143

The conversion of a Gothic Revival church spawned cavernous units such as this 4-BR, 3.5-BA condo asking $2,250,000. If it sells anywhere near that amount, it will set a Somerville price record. The ceilings are 60 feet in some parts and the spread comes with two parking spaces.

2. 70 Howard Street, #1E

Another cavernous puppy, the 3,000-square-foot 2-BR, 2-BA condo just hit the sales market. It's asking $2,250,000 as well. It, too, would set a sales record for Somerville.

3. 137 Sycamore Street

137 Sycamore St
Somerville, MA 02145

This 5-BR, 4-BA runs to well over 5,000 square feet, and comes with modern everything thanks to extensive renovations over time. It wants $1,999,999 after a $150,001 price-chop in late April. Even with that deep cut, 137 Sycamore would still set a Somerville price record were it to sell at or near its current asking.

4. 35 Lexington Avenue, #2

A new-construction number, this condo (and it is a condo despite being basically a townhouse) runs to 2,620 feet and features a 30-foot-long living room. The 4-BR, 3-BA is asking $1,995,000. It's the last one on the map that could set a city price record at its current tag.

Another new-construction offering, this is a 3,074-square-foot 3-BR, 4-BA asking a rather precise $1,589,900. It features ample parking: a spacious driveway and a 2.5-car garage (though we're not entirely sure what the .5 means).
