Affordable corner penthouse unit in the South End

Afraid of getting nickeled-and-dimed by your dream home? Check out this five-and-ten: Unit 5 at 10 Douglass Park in Boston’s chic South End, where a mere $379,000 will buy you a double-whammy of desirables in today’s city living: corner exposure and penthouse loftiness.

This 1,075-square-foot, 2-bed unit is far above dime-store level in other ways as well, boasting an open floor plan, an updated kitchen, lots of windows, hardwood floors, in-unit washer & dryer, generous closet storage, intercom system, one-car parking, and convenience to public transportation, shopping, restaurants, parks, universities and much more.

The multiple windows flood the corner living-dining room with multi-directional light, while the corner-notching puts each double window in an alcove and yields more wall area for more furniture arrangement possibilities, as well as a more intimate setting than most living-dining rooms.

The 2006 eat-in kitchen finds its own niche as a three-sided arrangement of C-shaped granite counterspace, classic custom cabinetry and stainless steel hardware. This consolidation of amenities frees up breakfast-table space, which is interconnected with the living-dining room for the optimum combo of an open floor plan with nooks and crannies.

The bedrooms are tastefully treated with wall colors that add to the coziness the wall-to-wall carpeting gives them.


A great neighborhood surrounds you from all four corners everywhere you turn on a dime: Carter Playground, Papa John’s Pizza, Slades Bar & Grill, Giovanni’s Market, Northeastern University and its Green Line trolley station, Orange Line subway service to downtown Boston at Massachusetts Ave., bus service from there to MIT and Harvard, Symphony Hall, and a whole lot more.
