The South End in Boston is best known for it's brick rowhouses and brownstones, snuggly packed in on quaint streets within an easy stroll of a cafe and boutique store at every turn. However, the past few years have offered new construction condos with a modern flair. ArtBlock, located at 725 - 735 Harrison Avenue in the SOWA district of the South End, is the wonderful example of contemporary new construction, that fits perfectly into the neighborhood. What ArtBlock (and similar new construction buildings) offers, is the chance for developers to deliver exactly what the current condominium market asks for: open spaces, big & energy efficient windows, high ceilings, centrally located and well appointed kitchens, central heat & AC, a smart use of closets & storage, elevators, AND let's not forget garage parking! ArtBlock also incorporates the artist, offering live/work style lofts for area artists in addition to standard market condos. Currently on the market is unit 406, a one-bedroom / one bathroom fourth floor corner unit that boasts all of the above, plus: polished concrete floors, three exposures, extra large kitchen island, and the ability to easily add a second bedroom with almost 1200 Square Feet of bright & modern living space. Price: $625,000 Size: 1164 Square Feet Condo Fee: $469 (includes: Heat, Hot Water, Sewer, Master Insurance) One Bedroom (with ability to add second) One Full Bathroom Garage Parking ($50,000 extra)
In April 2010, I represented a buyer client looking for a raw loft space to renovate to his own style. What we were able to find was an 1150 Square Foot top-floor at BrickBottom Lofts in Somerville. Here's a quick before and after gallery after 2 years of hard work! Interview to follow soon.....
Looking for a unique place where you can put some sweat-equity in and get a fantastic loft in return? Brickbottom Lofts in Somerville has just that type of unit on the market right now. Listed for $299,900, this upper-floor unit has 1008 Square Feet of living space that could use a little TLC, but the fruit of a little labor could go a long way. The current kitchen, although serviceable, would benefit from stone countertops, a backsplash, updated lighting and new appliances. The good news here is that the kitchen is in the perfect spot and is a great size for this space. There is also an existing island and overhead cabinets - so the footprint is there - it just needs that right buyer, with some flair to make it shine! The bathroom (once again: the right size and layout for this unit) would be a fun project for anyone willing to roll up their sleeves and crack open the toolbox. A tiled and glass enclosed shower, modern vanity and lighting (ok, paint is a must, too) would give this bathroom a boost. There are two bedrooms, however, the bedroom closest to the kitchen - if opened up so the unit becomes a true one bedroom- would increase the light and main living space would be extremely functional. Existing features include ceiling fans, double-entrance doors, factory sized windows, exposed raw elements (concrete), and a deeded garage parking space. Located in Somerville's first artist loft building (however units can be purchased by those other than artists), Brickbottom Artists Lofts are located next to the new green line extension, has easy access to 93 / 28 / East Cambridge / Boston, and boasts an on-site gallery, award winning common courtyard and vibrant community.
