Either/Or House Lust: A Barrington Victorian or a Wayland Square Condo?

They offer similar square-footage at around the same price point.

They were both built in 1900. They’re both hovering in the mid-$400,000s. They’re both about 2,500 square feet. And they’re both on the market. The similarities end there.

Here’s where your lifestyle comes into play. Looking for a family home in a top-notch school district? The Barrington Victorian — complete with a turret room for sunny study sessions — is for you. A master of your domain sans kids, or with a big budget to send your little city dweller to private school in Providence? The Wayland Square condo, with a truly spectacular master bedroom suite accessible via spiral staircase, is the place to hang your hat.
