The history

The sellers bought this house last year and redid it with entertaining in mind: it has an open floor plan and a large deck leading onto a tree-lined backyard. The custom, glass-lined staircase makes an attractive focal point for the main-floor gathering space:

Big selling point

The interior gets lots of natural light, thanks to three large skylights.

Possible deal breaker

The house is quite narrow, and there are only two bedrooms, neither of which is particularly large. Even so, it’s a lot more living space than many other people have at their disposal in this condo-heavy part of town.

By the numbers

• $1,175,000 • $3,940.11 in taxes (2017) • 12.5-by-120-foot lot • 3 skylights • 2 bedrooms • 2 bathrooms
