Amazingly affordable Back Bay unit


Wish you could live here? Think you can’t afford it? Think again. For a mere $315,000, Unit 1 in this historic 1866 Back Bay brownstone at the prestigious address of 182 Beacon St. can be all yours. And this 511- square-foot, 1-bed, 1-bath garden-level corner unit is a great way for Boston Brahmin wannabes to get their foot in the door — through a separate entrance, to boot.

Flanked by cast-iron fencing, Unit 1‘s entryway will make you feel like you’re living in a “gated community” for less than half the price.

Unit 1‘s great room encompasses a multitude of uses — dining, home office, living — in one fell swoop of a space, with ample corner exposure, a woodburning fireplace, and a quiet, cozy garden-level location.

The great room directly accesses all other points in the unit, including a kitchen that has been fully updated with granite counters and backsplash, classic custom cabinetry, and state-of-the-art appliances including a smooth-top electric cooktop.

Ample hardwood floor area for a king-size bed, generous closet space for a growing wardrobe, sizable windows with plantation shutters, and a comfy-cozy garden-level location for a good night’s sleep add up to great bedroom value for the price. The bath is finely appointed with neutral but variegated tile finishes, a pedestal sink, and an all-in-one tub/shower.

And look at what the location offers for the money: fitness trails and sailing along the Esplanade around the corner, shopping and dining along Newbury and Boylston streets, the Boston Public Library and subway service in Copley Square, and much more.
