House hunting anywhere near Boston with less than $500k to spend is kind of like searching for a parking spot in the middle of a snowstorm—tiring, disorienting, and sometimes altogether futile. But set your sights just five miles north of downtown Boston to take in this rare find, on the market for $425k.

Built at the turn of the 20th century, the Tudor style construction originally served as a Catholic schoolhouse, until it was remodeled into 22 condos in 2006. Today, take the elevator to the top-floor and navigate your way to this corner unit, and you’ll encounter a striking, sun-soaked space. Original beams give the room a circus tent-like appearance, with the wooden planks meeting at a 13-foot-high peak.

While the living area is open—windows on two walls usher natural light into the space—the floor plan zones the area into four “rooms”: the kitchen, dining room, living room, and study. And, unlike many lofts, this one offers a truly separate bedroom with three windows of its own.

Though it was initially developed as a designated artist loft, after 30 days on the market this airy unit will open up to the public at large. So, non-artists, give it another two weeks and put in your offer.
