And what a corner! For only $369,900, Unit 2 at 165 M St. in South Boston provides the ultimate in corner exposure and corner quirk.
This is due to the “flatiron” configuration of the renovated 3-unit 1910 building at the acutely angled intersection of East 7th and M streets, not to mention the lucky placement of your 935-square-foot, 2-bed, 1-bath unit right at the corner.
And a corner of convenience it is. Located in the thick of South Boston’s historic, exciting City Point district, 165 M St. has on-foot access to the beach, the bathhouse, exciting places to eat and shop, and ample bus service.
Bright sun, high ceilings, a spacious hardwood floor, and a brick fireplace built in the style of the old brick ovens of colonial Boston make the living room a special place to relax or entertain.
The living room’s uninterrupted flow into the dining room contrasts with the dining room’s corner intimacy and the living room’s corner bay, for moments of both open gathering and intimate conversation in this versatile unit.
The all-white kitchen is conveniently configured in a galley plan but is open to the living and dining areas so as not to feel confining.
The master bedroom is fit for a king-size bed with room to spare and light aplenty, as well as a private deck.
The second bedroom is bright and spacious enough for family room, media room or home office use.
Unit 2 also has its own oversized private basement storage with washer and dryer.
