When it comes to this gem of a property, we admired the hardwood floors and oversized windows, but what we’re most excited about is its location—just off Centre Street and a block from Jamaica Pond, where apartments are in high demand. Situated on the second floor, this corner unit is part of a row-house complex built in 1910. The listing describes a functional kitchen, but there’s an opportunity to customize the space and add value. If it’s possible to open the wall and connect the kitchen with the larger living space (see floor plan below), count us in!
