Boston is an amazing city that hosts many wonderful living opportunities, from studio apartments to Brownstones to multi-family homes. Here are the top three multi-family homes Boston currently has to offer for under $1 million:
#3: Suffolk Country Standout – $727,000
This three-family home was built in 1925, yet with its new renovations, it fosters the perfect balance of modern influences and historical charm. With three floors plus an unfinished basement, this property offers spacious living opportunities. The first floor has a living room, dining room, kitchen, and two bedrooms; the second and third floor both have newly renovated kitchens with granite countertops, wood cabinets, new bathrooms and hardwood floors throughout. Additionally, the third floor offers central air and views of the water, as the location of this lovely listing is just a short walk to the beach. Situated on a tree-lined street, not only is this home perfect for families because of its interior, but also because of the small-town feel of its location. Plus, parking is available in a detached garage, the driveway, and on the street. Originally, this home was priced at $770,000. It has since reduced to $727,000 – an absolute steal, and a can’t-miss opportunity in the Boston marketplace.
#2: Jamaica Plain Jewel – $899,000
Built in 1880, this two-family home features a spacious interior with many modern upgrades, yet still maintains stunning period detail. Major renovations were done between 2009 and 2010, including kitchens, bathrooms, decks, forced hot air heating systems, and roof work. Additional roof work was completed in 2014, as was blown-in insulation.
Today, the home is in a wonderful condition for families of all sizes. Unit #1 has two bedrooms, one bathroom, an eat-in kitchen with a pantry, a living room, a dining room with a built-in china closet, and a rear deck. Unit #2 has four bedrooms, two full bathrooms, an eat-in kitchen with a pantry, a living room, a dining room with a built-in china closet, three additional bonus rooms, and a rear deck. Additionally, there is a full-size basement on the property with generous storage space and head room.
While there lacks a garage or driveway, there is permit parking available on the street, as well as plenty of commuter-friendly travel options for residents. These include a short walk to Forest Hills MBTA Station, Arnold Arboretum and the shops, restaurants, and bars of South/Centre Street and Washington Street. Priced at $899,000, this Boston multi-family home ranks as the second-best available in Boston at this time.
#1: Brighton Beauty – $950,000
The best and brightest multi-family home under $1 million goes to this Brighton beauty. A two-family home, this property includes two updated and well-maintained units that provide modern conveniences while maintaining period charm.
The first-floor unit has a living room, dining room, two bedrooms, a full bath, a spacious, updated kitchen with a pantry, in-unit laundry, and access to the porch with gorgeous views. The master bedroom has a sitting room, as well. The second floor unit includes the same amenities, but the living and dining rooms are combined into one large, open layout concept. The second floor also has a third bedroom, access to the enclosed 3-season porch from both the kitchen and master bedroom, and private use of the attic.
This property also has a two-car detached garage and a full basement that is divided to give each unit half for storage. Not only are there many amenities within this property itself, but it also boasts a desirable location; 1/3 mile away from the Oak Square Bus Stop, 7/10 mile from Boston College, and is in close proximity to various shops, restaurants, Saint Elizabeth Hospital, the Mass Pike, a public golf course, and a YMCA. Priced at $950,000, this gorgeous property takes the cake as the best multi-family home in Boston under $1 million.
