Studs To Shingles – my take on construction activity and new developments in our lovely town. Some are in plain view and some off the beaten track – all soon to add to the astonishing and diverse housing stock in town.
20 Pleasant Street was a 3 unit property with 1,586 square feet on a 10,600 sf lot. It was marketed for $949K, and sold for $925K. It is being totally renovated most likely into three units. Its been amazing to watch the topography changes on the Pleasant Street frontage. It looks like it will be a terrific new development.
MLS COPY when it was listed for sale: This 3 Family Antique is located in a desirable West End neighborhood on a 10,600 s.f. lot. In addition, there is a free-standing garage. The first floor contains 2 apartments; 1 two bedroom/1 bath; 1 one-bedroom/1 bath. There is attic space over the one bedroom unit. Upstairs is another two-bedroom/1 bath unit with a large, stand-up attic space. There are peeks of the water from this level. The lot fronts on Pleasant and backs onto Carnes Lane (parking access is off Carnes.)
34 Commercial Street was a three bed four bath single family house with 2,560 square feet on an 8,104 sf lot. It was marketed for $1.695M, and sold for $1.6M. The new owners are doing what looks to be an outstanding renovation and adding a pool to boot. We loved this house and showed it several times when it was on the market. It had a dramatic interior and an A++ location on the “Gold Coast” – even though it is not on the waterside.
MLS COPY when it was listed for sale: One of the best locations in the West End, this beautiful single family home is a short stroll to the beach, yet is not in a flood zone. The classic Cape exterior belies the soaring Great Room, as you step in the front door. Flooded with sunlight, this stunning, unique & airy space, has an interior balcony recently built in 2012, which gives one an interesting perspective on the Great Room & a lovely view of the lush & private front yard with peeks of the water. The master bedroom & bath also completed in 2012, provides a private getaway from the main living area. There is a cozy den with gas fp off the main room, which would also make a great home office. A rare 3 car heated garage is reached from Point St. It has a large guest room above with a full bath.
31 Creek Road is a new construction single family house with three bedrooms and four baths with 1,538 square feet. (listing courtesy of Cove Real Estate) It is being marketed for $1.179M and is down the dirt road across from Victor’s Restaurant or at the end of Nickerson all the way down Creek Road. The lot sold for $425K last year. BTW below is a VERY old aerial photo used in the listing data with none of the new West Vine buildings or Victor’s buildings. An interesting view of the “olden” days!
