My favorite story about this home is that the last time it was on the market, the family living there was raising chickens. Since the sellers were moving to Texas, my clients and I figured they wouldn't be bringing the birds with them, so we wrote them into our offer -- and got them! It turned out to be a short-lived experiment with urban farming, and alas, the chickens now have a new home.
As it turned out, being in the midst of coronavirus, we ended up selling this home off-market for $1,085,000, so I am only posting this after-the-fact since it is valuable info as a comp for future sellers, buyers and agents.
What a rare opportunity – a turnkey single family in a great Somerville neighborhood, with a beautifully landscaped yard and parking for three cars! This light-filled home features high ceilings, well-proportioned rooms and plenty of space for all the things we need our houses to be these days – office, gym, meditation space... Enjoy the warmer months grilling on the patio, growing veggies in the raised garden beds, or just doing your zoom calls from the shade of the pergola. Conveniently located in the heart of the city near the library and City Hall (not to mention Sarma!), with easy access to Routes 28 and 93, Sullivan Station and just over a half-mile to vibrant Union Square with its many cafés, restaurants, shops, farmers market and community festivals. And… the future Gilman Square Green Line Station will be just a few blocks away!
