Give me an “A”!

Though many residents of neighboring towns may be surprised, those currently living in Attleboro  won’t be shocked at this news…

Buyers from all over (especially higher priced Boston housing markets) are now seeking out Attleboro as a place to purchase a home and settle whether living a single, couple, or family lifestyle.  Attleboro’s proximity to major routes and train lines make it the perfect location for commuters when traveling North to Boston, South to Providence, or West to Marlborough.   Home prices are on rise but still affordable compared to other markets.  The energy of the downtown and continued revitalization throughout the city definitely appeal to those wanting to get in early on a growing real estate market.  Resources are being invested into schools, building, businesses, infrastructure… all of the factors that contribute to creating a great community and solid real estate investment.

IMG_7862Are you interested in moving to an energized area focused on progress?  There are charming properties close to downtown, luxury apartments near the new train station, mature established neighborhoods, beautiful  new subdivisions of single family homes, and new upscale Townhome projects all offering their own unique benefits. Attleboro truly offers homes for all lifestyles!

IMG_7961I, of course, take great pride in selling our new construction projects  – Brigham Hill Estate, Flynn Terrace, and Ides Hill Commons – but, “new” does not always appeal to everyone.   There are so many great established neighborhoods offering a variety of home styles at a variety of price points.

I’d love to help you explore all that Attleboro has to offer.  Give  call, text, or e-mail anytime and let me know if you are thinking about buying, what price range you would like to target, and general criteria for you new home (i.e. bedrooms, bathrooms, garage, yard, location, style, etc.).  I’ll do a little research and get right back to you.  Happy to give recommendations for mortgage officers and banks if you need help getting started with financing as well.

And, certainly, if you are thinking about selling – let me know!!  I have countless buyers searching for the right home in Attleboro.  Buyers are out looking and ready to buy!

Field Trip Back in Time

1780 ColonialHave you ever seen a property on-line and just had to see it?

Last night I had a buyer ask me to find out a little more about a home built in 1780 before she packed up her kids and made the trek down here.

The property is currently vacant, bank-owned, winterized, and electric is turned off.  Normally that means a phone conversation or a few e-mails back and forth with another agent to get the “scoop”.  However, the antique lover in me just had to check out this Attleboro charmer myself so I grabbed a friend and a flashlight and off we went this morning.

First let’s get the negatives out of the way… it is on a main road (and really only about 20 feet off of the main road). Minimally (from what we could see) it needs plumbing updated, floors leveled, chimney(s) rebuilt, some electrical work,  kitchen & bath renovations, updated heating, and yard cleared.  BUT …

1780 Colonial1780 ColonialYou enter off of the back into a mudroom area with wood floors, this leads into a family room area across the back of the home complete with wide pine floors, beamed ceiling, and fireplace.  When facing the front of the house, to your left off of the family room is a small kitchen with wood cabinets which would be great opened up into the fireplaced family room.  In the back corner of the house to your right is a second set of stairs and a full bath.  There are two good sized rooms in the front of the home on the first level with the front entry in between.  Both of these rooms offer great built-ins, closets, wide pine floors,  fireplaces, and more charm!1780 Colonial 1780 Colonial

Upstairs follows a very similar layout… two large rooms in the front of the house each with a fireplace and then one large room across the back that has a small room (above the mudroom) off of it. A second floor laundry is in the back left corner (above the kitchen) and another full bath is in the back right corner (above the first floor bathroom).   The space and plumbing could be there to create a master suite out of the back of the second floor with walk-in closet and ensuite bath.  Plus you could still have two other bedrooms and a full bath.

But wait, there’s more… off of the second floor bath is a staircase to the third floor which appears to have had two other finished rooms at one time. On the third floor, it is clear, the chimney will need help (it has fallen in). The basement offers lots of usable space, tall ceilings, and cement floor.1780 Colonial 1780 Colonial

Set on a spacious almost half acre lot abutting a little stream, this Colonial rehab is clearly not for the average buyer …but if you love a home with a story, have vision & patience, and access to some cash (either in your account now or through a 203k loan program), the unique charm and space is there inside and out to keep the right buyer happy for years to come!
