Dorchester townhome condo offers more for less

If you think you have to settle for a box, a bedchamber, or a corner of an attic for your first-time home, come check out 99 Claybourne St. in Dorchester. For only $249,000, this 1,603-square-foot tri-level townhouse condo offers three bedrooms, three full levels of living, a granite/stainless kitchen, a bath with Jacuzzi, private garage parking, and even a private address.

The open-plan great room brings a touch of ballroom elegance to your living, entertaining and formal dining with its gleamingly polished hardwood floor, its designer light fixtures, and its delicate floor-to-ceiling sliders, one with a colonial fanlight transom.

The sliders open out to an expansive private deck with friendly views of the neighborhood reaching out to the harbor waters.

The great room opens back to a gourmet kitchen, fully updated with black granite counters, state-of-the-art stainless steel appliances and classic custom white laminate cabinetry, all wrapping around in a C configuration for convenience.

The wall-to-wall carpeted master bedroom has its own ballroom grace. Its twin closets are retrofit with mirror sliding doors reminiscent of dance-studio mirror walls, and its classic casement windows pour in the sun with a European flair.

The master bath is updated with a Jacuzzi and elegantly tiled in Italian tumbled-tile, matched with a granite vanity counter of similar color. The unit also contains a half bath.

The 6-unit townhouse community is pleasantly situated on a private tree-shaded crescent in a quiet neighborhood with a full array of urban amenities: Fannie Lou Hamer Community Garden, Center for Community Health, a Mother’s Rest Park, Lucy Stone School and Schoolyard Park, John Marshall Elementary School, bus service along Washington Street, the Red Line subway at Fields Corner, and more.
