Oh, if only my parents had bought me real estate for my childhood birthdays instead of books and dolls. Let’s just say that if you bought real estate 30 years ago in the Boston area, right now you’d be sitting pretty. And speaking of pretty, check out these houses. Which one would you choose if money and location were not a consideration?
First up is a 6 bedroom, 4.5 bath house in Brookline, MA. Built in 1900, it is listed for $2,750,000.
This house boasts covered porches,
an updated kitchen,
Six — yes six — fireplaces,
lots of marble,
all on 1/2 an acre.
Next up is another 6 bedroom, 6.5 bath house. This new build is in Newton, MA and is listed for $2,598,000.
It has large windows,
a sleek kitchen,
an open floor plan,
lots of eco-friendly features like solar hot-water,
and a big backyard.
Last up is 3 bedroom, 2.5 bath penthouse in Back Bay — prime downtown location — listed for $2,650,000.
It has direct elevator access to a formal entry,
granite counters and stainless steel appliances,
city views from the master,
and an amazing rooftop terrace with custom lightning, speakers and built-in granite grilling station.
So what do you think? Would you chose the historic house, the high-tech new build, or the penthouse in Boston?
