Cleveland Circle penthouse studio offers more for less

The classical grandeur of 24 Sidlaw Road in Brighton might make you think you have to fork up a fortune to dwell therein. But what’s less obvious to the onlooker is the 360-square-foot, 2-room Unit 21 that awaits the first-time homebuyer’s admiration and approval for only $149,900 — an unbelievable price for a penthouse studio as well as a dignified front entrance and a vibrant neighborhood.








Unit 21‘s chief asset is its open-plan versatility and flexibility: each room has more than one use. For instance, the living room is also the bedroom, courtesy of a custom Murphy bed that pops down and out behind what first appears to be a French-doored highboy.

The kitchen is also the dining room, for a unified prep-and-eat experience. The kitchen is fully updated with granite counters, advanced appliances and custom cabinetry, and the red-orange walls add a dash of elegance to your formal or informal dining experience.

Another privilege of living at 24 Sidlaw Road is the fitness trail around the Chestnut Hill Reservoir nearby, in addition to the parks, ballfields, skating rink and swimming pool right across the street from Cleveland Circle.

Cleveland Circle is the place to be for upscale restaurants and bars, pizza places, Dunkin’ Donuts, hardware and laundry needs, CVS, and access to three trolley lines: the C line to Brookline, Washington Square restaurants, and movies at the Coolidge Corner Theatre; the D line to Newton, Brookline Village, and the Longwood medical area; and the B line to Boston College, Allston Village and Boston University. All three lines continue into downtown Boston.
