When my clients and I found their Medford home in 2015 it was, shall we say, in need of a little love. A true *grandma* house that hadn’t been touched in years, it was clear that whoever bought it would be taking on a project that would involve some serious time and money.
There were many long and detailed discussions between my clients and I before they finally decided to bite the bullet — although the work was somewhat daunting, the house had a lot of space and great bones and they loved the location — a small residential cul-de-sac in the Tufts area of Medford. Fast forward a couple years and voila!

This spacious home in the Tufts-area of Medford may be just what you’re looking for! The owners have already completed major aspects of home renovation — wiring, plumbing, systems, walls — plus opened up the main floor, remodeled the full bath, added a half bath, plumbed for an a future master bath, and brought the laundry up to the first floor. Due to a job opportunity out of state, they are selling before they’ve renovated the kitchen, allowing a lucky new owner to design it exactly as they’d wish, either now or at some point in the future. Top this all off with a lovely new front porch, level fenced-in back yard and off-street parking for two cars. Located on a cul de sac in the Tufts area of Meford, 7 Sturtevant has a great neighborhood feel with easy access to shopping, restaurants, several parks/playgrounds, Davis Square and the proposed Green Line Extension.
