Size: 788 square feet
Bedrooms: 1

This one-bedroom condo is all about scale: Tall windows, 12-foot ceilings, and even the heavy double door you walk through to enter the unit. Which is to say nothing of the home’s crown jewel, a massive chandelier dripping down into the center of the large living area. Situated on the second floor of a brick bow-front building bordering Worcester Square park, the home’s age is another part of its grand appeal. The light pine floors, dotted with dark nail heads, date back to 1900 and the baroque crown molding is thought to be original, too.

Off the main hall, there are three smaller rooms: A narrow kitchen with stainless appliances, a bath with painted tile floors, and an incredibly stylish bedroom. Push through a pair of pocket doors with frosted glass panes to kick up your feet in the latter, which showcases somehow even more embellished molding than the rest of the unit. A starburst-style light fixture and cool gray walls modernize the 20th century glamor, and on the other side of a glass door is a truly timeless feature—a roomy balcony where your plants can get some sun, and you can lounge in the shade.
