The Hawes Building offers life in one of the prime historic locations in Boston. If the $600,000 to $625,000 price range suits your needs, this condo building is one to keep your eye on. The sunny kitchen allows you to spend a lot of time there, complete with a breakfast bar area that has built-in storage that is ideal for wine. Your open living area, immediately off the kitchen, features crown moldings and recessed lighting. There is also a part of the living area that is an ideal space for an office, complete with natural lighting and shiny wood flooring.

Bathrooms in these condos have touches that include porcelain pedestal sinks. You'll want to use the extra space in the bathroom if you'd like to add storage for towels or other items you need at hand. The exposure in the bedroom allows you to wake up to lots of sunlight every morning. There is also closet space that will help make it easier for you to put everything away where it needs to be. You'll enjoy how the space available lets you express more creativity in your decorating.

Much of the building's charm comes from touches that are reminiscent of historic homes in the area. The exposed brick adds a distinct touch of class to the stairway area. Another pleasant addition is the carved wooden staircase that has exquisite details. There is a private deck that lets you wholeheartedly savor the magnificent views. Reserved parking on the street makes things easier when you need to have a place near your door. Another advantage of living here is the fact that you have reserved storage. It's always very convenient when you don't need to leave your building to have access to a secure place to store additional items.

Buying a condo in Boston’s red-hot real estate market can be a daunting proposition. If you’re looking to purchase a condo in the city and are focusing on South Boston, you should take a closer look at the Hawes Building. Although this isn’t one of the many luxury condo developments that are so ubiquitous downtown, it is a well-maintained building with generously appointed units and affordable prices. Securing a condo here isn’t always easy, so it pays to get all of the help that you can get. Start by connecting with Boston City Properties.

The Basics

Situated at 278 K Street in Southie, the Hawes Building is an unassuming building that is often overlooked by condo hunters. It offers a convenient location, and it is within easy walking distance of a wide array of services and amenities. Units in this building offer generous amounts of space, and prices are quite competitive when stacked up against similar-sized units in other developments. As is the case just about everywhere in the city lately, however, vacancies don’t tend to pop up here too often. When they do, they’re typically snapped up quickly. Therefore, it is imperative to arm yourself with as many resources as possible.


If you want to own a condo in a development that offers a laundry list of top-shelf amenities, this isn’t the building for you. As noted previously, this is an understated and unassuming condo building. As such, it isn’t packed to the gills with upscale features. This is reflected in the very reasonable dues that are assessed per month. The building has been renovated and modernized extensively through the years, and its infrastructure is sound. Residents enjoy top-notch security, and all units have voice intercom systems that add a great deal of convenience.

Condo Options and Features

The building itself may not have a lot going on, but the condos within it are truly first-rate. All of the condo homes in the Hawes Building feature open floor plans and high ceilings with recessed lighting. Most of the units here have gas fireplaces that come very much in handy on bitterly cold winter nights. Throughout most of these units, you will find premium hardwood flooring and high-quality carpeting. All units have full-sized washers and dryers, which is a major perk, and they all have private decks that provide even more living space. Kitchens in these condos are truly top of the line, and they include things like stainless steel appliances, granite counters and breakfast bars.

In this building, a three-bedroom, one-bathroom unit offering around 1,400 square feet of space is currently selling for around $625,000, which is a terrific price given the quality of the condo and its size.
