Brighton unit 2nd to none in affordability, amenability, accessibility

Don’t be misled into thinking this building entrance’s classical details, fancy door and well-trimmed hedges mean it’ll cost you a fortune to live there. No, the buyer of Unit 2 at 38 Ransom Road will have the good fortune of 555 square feet of hardwood-floored living space with high ceilings, fully applianced kitchen, sizable bedroom and bath, and on-foot accessibility to shopping, public transit and a whole lot more, all for only $169,000.

For that price, you also get a humdinger of a living-dining room, ready for your occupancy and your creative design sense. The carpet can be removed and the floor refinished for a higher-class housewarming.

The kitchen is “prep” for your culinary pursuits with custom paneled cabinetry, a full range of up-to-date appliances, and even a chest of drawer and cupboard built-ins.

The bedroom is roomy enough for a sizable bed, bookcase and workstation yet cozy enough for a good night’s rest.

The bath is fully updated with attractive tilework, pedestal sink, and mirror-door medicine cabinet with overhead makeup lighting.

The $275 monthly association fee includes heat and hot water, water and sewer, laundry facilities, master insurance, exterior maintenance, landscaping and snow removal.

Located on a quiet tree-lined street, 38 Ransom Road is accessible to a multitude of neighborhood amenities. The Commonwealth Avenue Green Line trolley to Boston College, Boston University, the Back Bay and downtown Boston is steps away, as is Whole Foods Market on Washington Street. Other neighborhood offerings include laundry and dry-cleaning services and fine eating establishments such as Brighton Cafe, Chang’s House and Tasca Tapas Restaurant.
