Magnificent 3 Family Home Overlooking the Heights

Magnificent 3 Family Home Overlooking the Heights

1st floor bedroom with adjoining sunroom

1st floor bedroom with adjoining sun room

A 3-family home in the heart of desirable Chestnut Hill is a rare find, especially one so suited to this neighborhood. This special property is perfect to an owner investor. Who cares about a view of the Boston skyline? This house has an even better feature.  Each unit has a perfect view of the spires of Boston College nestled behind the trees and gracious surrounding homes. (OK, I confess, I graduated from Boston College and have always enjoyed the beauty of the campus.)

The 1st floor unit has a flexible layout with options for various room configurations depending on your style and choices. There are 8 rooms total with 2 full baths and 1 half bath.  In addition, there is a charming a sun room.  On the other side of the unit is a family room or potential 5th bedroom.  The rooms are sunny and spacious rooms with shining hardwood floors and charming features such as a built in hutch, fireplace, and a lovely back deck overlooking a level yard.

The 2nd and 3rd floor units have been handsomely renovated. Both include kitchens with stainless steel appliances, granite counter tops, and warm wood cabinetry. The baths are elegantly updated with clean lines and plenty of creature comforts like the jet tub in the 3rd floor spa bath.

The entire building has been meticulously maintained. Even the common stairways in this home have been dressed in their Sunday best, with fresh carpeting and paint.

Massive triple decker in Newton

Third Floor Walk-up

When I saw the list price of $260,000 for a 3 bedroom Newton condominium, I wasn’t expecting much but went to do a quick preview for my clients. I was pleasantly surprised and got them in as soon as possible! Although a little rough around the edges, this home is a sleeper waiting for the right buyer.

It’s a spacious third floor condo which has bird’s eye views from front and back decks. With over 1100 square feet of living area, it has an eat-in kitchen, full dining room, and 3 equally spacious bedrooms. The light pours in even on a rainy day through the many windows illuminating the high ceilings, wide hallways, and attractive hardwood floors.  There is 1 deeded off-street parking space and a shared yard.

Welcome Home

Considering the strong rental market in Newton, this unit makes sense for an investor buyer. Katie Greeley, Senior Mortgage Originator from Greenpark Mortgage supports the argument for investment.

This is a nice opportunity. It’s hard to find an investment property in Newton where, after a reasonable down payment, you can come out cash positive. With the historic lows we’re experiencing in mortgage rates and reasonable housing prices, it’s a great time for a person to diversify their investments into real estate.
