Renovated earlier this year, this four-bedroom, three-bath home just north of Turkey Thicket Playground is a nice little home for the money. The main level consists of an open living, dining and kitchen area as well as two bedrooms and a full bathroom. Upstairs is a large master suite that has a bathroom with a free-standing, frameless shower, which is fairly unusual and modern for any home these days. The basement is a large multi-purpose space with another full bath, and there are two parking spaces out back. The property also has a large fenced-in backyard. For the full listing, click here.

Two-Bedroom Top-Floor Unit in Mount Pleasant

Even though it is under 1,000 square feet, this top-floor condo is priced appropriately for a two-bedroom, two-bath unit in Mount Pleasant. The main living area has hardwood floors and a number of windows, and the master bedroom has an en-suite bathroom and walk-in closet. The condo also has a fireplace and the building has a roof deck, but the listing price does not include a parking space, so if the eventual buyer has a car they may be circling the block at night looking for a spot.
