One of these houses is not like the others. Behold the newly constructed two-family home at 55 Hull Street: a contemporary composition of clean lines and glass. The place sticks out like a sore thumb, but it somehow works. Sure, its facade looks a bit different from the surrounding brick abodes, but that’s part of its charm. The narrow rowhouse is in line with the character of the neighborhood while still flaunting some personality.

Inside, the European-style units offer kitchens outfitted with white quartz countertops, stainless steel appliances, and two-toned cabinets from Italian maker Arrital. Unlike the North End’s typical cramped, aging condos, these units are open and airy, thanks to abundant natural light. Each two-bedroom also comes with its own private outdoor space. As an added bonus, it’s just down the street from the Skinny House, a quirky landmark built out of spite.
