Within minutes of the B, C, and D branches of the Green Line, this four-bedroom apartment is pleasantly located on a tree-filled block between Comm Ave. and Beacon Street. Inside, a pair of columns delineates the large living room from the fireplaced dining area, and the bedrooms follow spacious suit. Hardwood floors furnish the bedrooms, while tile adorns the kitchen, which houses a stacked washer and dryer.

Already dreading snowy treks to catch the T? This place right on Comm. Ave. is here to save you. Since it’s directly across from the Chiswick Road stop on the B Line, your commute to the train should take all of 60 seconds. Also perfect for winter are these amazingly sunny digs, which are pet-friendly and come with a stainless- and granite-blessed kitchen. If you don’t mind sharing a couple of bathrooms between five roommates, you can each enjoy paying a modest $630 for rent.
