It’s once in a blue moon that gems like this one hit the market. Perched atop Roxbury’s Fort Hill—right across from Highland Park and the Fort Hill Monument—the brownstone is a looker inside and out. Its stately brick exterior conceals a strikingly modern interior with sleek, colorful updates.

The building consists of a grand, three-floor townhome and a one-bedroom garden-level unit. The main house boasts soaring ceilings and impressive woodwork throughout, not to mention exposed brick and a two-story atrium over the main living area. The newly renovated kitchen features green custom cabinets and a door to a private deck, while upstairs, a master bedroom comes with a full bathroom, a gigantic walk-in closet, and an office. There’s a second outdoor space in the form of a private patio at garden level, plus those views of Highland Park from every front-facing window. All that stunning living space comes to $411 per square foot—a fraction of what you’d pay for a brownstone in Back Bay or the South End.
