Is the mansion of your dreams out of your reach, budget-wise? Well, come on down to one of Boston’s most up-and-coming neighborhoods, Roxbury, and see how you can live in a mansion for the price of a condo.
An actual condo, Unit 1 at 76 Perrin St. offers you 1,498 square feet of hardwood-floored living space — including 11-foot ceilings, well-preserved Victorian details, three oversized bedrooms, hardwood floors, a cherry/granite kitchen, central air conditioning, off-street parking, a picturesque private common patio, generous basement storage, and an ideal corner lot location — all for only $279,000, plus a $304 condo fee that includes water, sewer and master insurance. Join me for a tour of a rare find.
The building’s side bow window creates an elegant sitting space in the formal living room.
The kitchen has been fully updated with cherry cabinetry, black granite counters including a central island, and stainless steel appliances.
The common patio is enhanced with a gravel surface, a stockade-fenced niche for a small garden, an evergreen screen, and an arbor leading out to the off-street parking, where one space is available for Unit 1.
And just look at what’s available in your neighborhood: the YMCA, Boston Latin Academy, Gertrude Howes and Little Scobie playgrounds, Blue Hill Convenience Store, Save-A-Lot and Warren markets, Breezeway Bar & Grill, Crown Fried Chicken, ample bus service, and lots more.
