If you're searching for a place with Harbor views and newish, glass-box towers aren't your thing, don't despair. Look toward the North End, the most-established neighborhood in Boston. What can you get for just under $1M to $2M? Maybe the best unobstructed harbor views in the city and a whole lot of character. Some features include high-beamed ceilings and exposed-brick walls, married with custom finishes that compete with any of the new-construction projects around.
