The exterior of this two-bedroom, two-bath, 1,659-square-foot condo features varied rooflines, dormers, and a turret, and the interior is far from cookie-cutter, too.

The unit, 40 Highland Ave., No. 7, is listed for $589,000. This corner penthouse takes full advantage of those varied rooflines, offering vaulted ceilings with exposed beams in the kitchen and elsewhere. The dining area off the living room is nestled into a turret with a cone-like ceiling. The home also features exposed brick, skylights, built-ins, hardwood floors, and recessed lighting.

The master suite offers skylights with remote-controlled blackout shades. Other condo amenities include a pantry, a private storage unit, a mudroom, a backyard, laundry space, and off-street parking.

There will be open houses on Saturday, Jan. 6, and Sunday, Jan. 7, from noon to 1:30 p.m.
