Unit 1 at 13 Vinton St. in South Boston is your ticket to first-floor convenience to everything under the sun — including the beach — and pet-friendly amenities galore — including a pet-friendly condo association — for a mere $218,000.
The original crown moldings and wide-pine floors of this 1890 building bring historical luster to the great room, while its high ceiling and open floor plan brings you contemporary loft-style headroom and flexibility in arrangement of your living- and dining-room sets, bookcases, entertainment center, etc. Just as convenient is the 512-square-foot unit’s layout: off one end of the great room is the eat-in kitchen, off the other are the bedroom and bath.
The eat-in kitchen is just as lofty. Unusually large for a unit in this price range, it has enough room for an entire dining-room set as well as a breakfast table. This space is made possible by lining up everything — including the kitchen sink — along one wall: custom paneled cabinetry, granite counter space, stainless steel refrigerator, four-burner gas range and cabinet-concealed dishwasher. The windowed alcove at the rear creates a more intimate breakfast space.
The unit’s corner location and oversized windows bring optimum morning light into the bedroom, while the high ceiling, crown molding and wide-pine floor fill it with Victorian charm.
The fenced-in backyard patio further stretches your dollar and your space with ample area for cocktails and cookouts, romping room for children and dogs, and gardening plots on the side.
Down the street is plenty more play area for dogs and kids in Joe Moakley Park and along the beach. In the immediate neighborhood are restaurants like Sergio’s Pizza and Sports Connection Bar & Grill, Tedeschi’s convenience store, bus service along Dorchester Street, Red Line subway service at Andrew Square, and lots more.
