Built 43 years before the United States gained its independence, this antique Cape in Milton is a rarely available treasure. Not only does it have a storied past—it’s nicknamed “the meeting house” and was once a gathering place for Milton’s elite—but the place also boasts an agreeable price tag.

Indeed, with an asking price of $684,888, the five-bedroom abode is a relative bargain. The home is listed for just $271 per square foot, which is about half the price per square foot for a condo in Jamaica Plain. The property is quite close to the city’s border and sizes up to just over a half acre. Inside the Cape, there are built-in bookcases, several fireplaces, hardwood floors, and crown molding. The home is topped with a spacious bedroom carved out of an attic addition—it’s complete with skylights and exposed beams.
