Only eight of the 95 one-bedroom condos currently on the market are in two to three-unit buildings – the oddly named style “2/3 family” that often puzzles buyers.  Most two-families or triple-deckers have apartments or condominiums with at least two bedrooms.   Because of those floorplans more often than not Cambridge one-bedroom condos are found in larger buildings.

Other one-bedroom condos are available in modern buildings in Cambridge built in the 1980s or in the last few years.  These are often luxury condos – many have concierges, pools, exercise facilities and garage parking.
