5 beds, 3 full / 0 half baths, 2807 sqft, 2 parking. Condo ($375 condo fee.)

Listed 02/28/18 | Sold 05/24/18

My notes: Large, updated condo. Four bedrooms on upper (3rd) floor and one on the main (2nd) floor. The one on the main floor is off the kitchen and I have trouble envisioning it being used as a full time bedroom, but could be a nice office or guest room. Between that room, a family room, dining room, living room, sitting room, and kitchen all on the main level, there is a lot of entertaining/common space!

Status: SOLD
Listed 02/26/18 | Sold 05/01/18

My notes: Grand gorgeous single-family in sought-after location. The accessory apartment can only be accessed from the main house - so probably more suitable for au pair suite or in laws than it would be for rental income. Nice big yard too.

My notes: 2 bedrooms on each level of this second and third floor unit. Bright with lots of windows. On the main level, one of the bedrooms is smallish, and the other might more naturally be used as a living room if not needed for sleeping.

4620 sqft.
Status: SOLD
Listed 02/28/18 | Sold 05/04/18

My notes: Promising house for a family that wants a single-family with a bonus apartment for rental income, au pair, or in-laws. The third floor apartment has a private entrance, or can be accessed through the main house, depending on the scenario. Basement has high ceilings and has potential to be finished. Fenced backyard and deck. In the main house, the second floor has only one bathroom - would have to take square footage from one of the bedrooms if wanted to add a master bath. I think developers will also be interested in this one. I expect the price to be bid up.

Listed 09/23/17 | Sold 09/04/18

My notes: Spacious (palatial?) single-family on Fisher Hill with indoor pool, outdoor patio, the works. But, very dated - could use updating throughout, including kitchen, bathrooms, and more. That's probably why it has been on the market for 149 days - waiting for the right buyer who can to do this kind of project for themself.

My notes: Large, funky 4-bedroom in excellent location close to Beacon St. Top two floor of this building. Overlooks Star Market. Good light. The master bedroom is very large, and the other three are small. Kitchen and the three bathrooms and decor overall are dated and could use updating/renovations. Priced fairly. Lots of potential for the right owners.

Listed 02/14/18

My notes: Second and third floor of a 2 family. The top level is the master suite, but no door separates it for privacy from the main level. 1 zone for heating and a/c - the second floor was of course much warmer than the main level. Nicely updated interior. Exterior needs love and paint.

3 beds, 4 full / 0 half baths, 3252 sqft, 1 parking. Condo ($732.86 condo fee.)
Status: SOLD
Listed 02/14/18 | Sold 05/31/18

My notes: First floor and lower level of the Empire Building on Beacon St. Although it has a lot of square footage, it’s spread out in a way that there is not as much entertaining space as you might expect: there is the rec room downstairs, and the open kitchen/living room upstairs. Three bedrooms. In the front of the unit the windows are smaller garden/below grade feeling, but on the sides and back there are full windows even on the lower level. In 2012 there was a major fire in the building. Back then it was an apartment building. In the renovation they turned it into condos around 2014. A number of units sold recently. In the past 24 months, of the ten units, 4 were sold, and 2-3 others were listed and failed to sell, including this unit. This unit was listed for $1,575,000 on April 26, 2017, then dropped to $1,499,000, then dropped again to $1,445,000 end of May, before being withdrawn June 17th. (And re-listed about an hour ago). Unit 1, which is probably the most similar unit in the building, sold recently, on June 14, 2017. It was listed for $1,499,000, and sold for $1,400,000. ($478/sqft). It is very similar, except approximately 300 square feet smaller. It also is a first and lower level unit.

2848 sqft.
Status: SOLD
Listed 02/08/18 | Sold 03/30/18

My notes: 2-family, each unit has 3 bedrooms, a living room, dining room, kitchen, and hallway. Kitchen and baths are dated. The potential here is if you were able to do a major renovation and add square footage, either by pushing out a dormer in the attic, or probably easier, finishing some portion of the large basement which seemed to have good ceiling height.

Listed 02/06/18 | Sold 04/30/18

My notes: The building location is very convenient between Coolidge Corner and Brookline Village. This unit on the third (top) floor of this building. Parking is rental for $200/month, and is right across the street. My understanding is that the sellers used to rent this unit, and then three years ago they bought it directly from the owner. Then they renovated the kitchen, bathroom, and bedrooms, which all look nice. Both bedrooms have large closets.

Currently 3/16 units in the association are rented out. No planned assessments coming up, and about $49k in reserve fund. Seems to be well managed by Danin Management Company. Lovely place.

Status: SOLD
Listed 01/24/18 | Sold 02/26/18

My notes: This is a small, attached, single-family in need of a gut rehab. The floor plan might be challenging though if you want to keep three bedrooms, because there is no bathroom on the second floor, and not a lot of space to add one without taking away one of the bedrooms.

My notes: Gorgeous new construction with high end finishes and a very thoughtful layout. (Ask me for the floor plan). It has a large bedroom with ensuite bathroom on the ground floor, great for guests. There is a lot of square footage in the finished lower level as well, including a kitchenette and additional bedroom, that could be used as an au pair suite. Newton Street is a busier street, but the house seemed quiet on our visit.

4 beds, 2 full / 1 half baths, 1968 sqft. Single family.
Status: SOLD
Listed 01/10/18 | Sold 03/09/18

My notes: Small single-family houses are in high demand, and I'm expecting this one to sell very quickly and for above ask. Despite this going into a long-weekend, I could see this going for as much as $1.7M ($200K over ask). They plan to hold all offers until 2pm Tuesday. There are 3 parking spots total: 1 in garage, and 2 tandem blocking spots in the driveway. Additionally, they say that there is a neighborhood understanding that you can park one car on the street in front of the houses. Quiet, private side-street. Can see the park from the house.
