It’s easy to look unfavorably upon modern, boxy condos that spring up in historical neighborhoods. This condo on the market, for example, sticks out like a sore thumb among Jamaica Plain’s Victorians and triple-deckers. But that seems to be part of its charm.

Situated a short walk from Jackson Square, the home overlooks a grassy stretch of the Southwest Corridor from its private deck. Below, there’s a fenced-in patio with plenty of room for a grill, a garden, lounge chairs, and outdoor dining. The condo’s interior is pretty impressive, too, boasting breezy open-concept living spaces with high ceilings. The gourmet kitchen comes complete with top-of-the-line appliances and a waterfall island. Other bells and whistles? A walk-in Elfa closet in the master bedroom, a Nest thermostat, central air conditioning, and carport parking—all for less than $1 million (a rarity within city limits).
