PROS This fourth-floor unit is in a turn-of-the-century elevator building across the street from Roche Bros. — not to mention Macy’s and dozens of other retailers in Downtown Crossing. Warm wood floors welcome you in the foyer, and the remodeled bathroom at left has marble tile and vanity plus a laundry closet. The kitchen is updated with granite counters and island seating; it’s part of a large, open living and dining space with designer light fixtures and handsome built-in shelving. The main bedroom is bathed in sunlight pouring through large windows; a separate office has walk-in closets but no windows. Condo fee includes heat and hot water. CONS No balcony or outdoor space, but Boston Common is a block away.

PROS This second-floor corner unit in Ink Block’s Sepia building has access to a common roof deck plus an underground tunnel to Whole Foods. A bright, modern kitchen with an island anchors the open living area, which boasts high-end finishes and appliances and has sun-harvesting floor-to-ceiling windows throughout. The master suite has a walk-in California closet, plus a luxurious private bath with a multifunction toilet and a step-in shower. The second bedroom, off the living room, shares access to the main bath, and there’s a laundry closet off the entry foyer. Condo fee includes 24-hour concierge and deeded garage parking, plus a gym and lounge down the hall. CONS For all the perks, a nearly four-digit condo fee may be hard to swallow. As of press time, property is under agreement.
