Millbrook Condos – 993-995 Mass Ave Arlington

The Millbrook Condos at 993-995 Mass Ave. in Arlington MA offer 99 condominiums in two buildings.  The complex was built in the early 1970s and gets its name from the mill brook that runs behind the buildings.

Millbrook Condominiums - 993 Massachusetts Avenue, Arlington

Millbrook Condominiums - 993 Massachusetts Avenue, Arlington MA

I’ll never forget my first visit to 993 Massachusetts Ave.  It was early spring, and even though the large sliding door overlooking the brook was closed, the sound of rushing water was mesmerizing.  Brought me right back to nights we spent camping by a stream when I was growing up.

Millbrook Condos at 993 Mass Ave Arlington

The condominiums in the 993 building are often described as “lofts”.  That confused me since the building doesn’t look a loft building. Turns out “loft” refers to the open upper level bedroom.

When you walk into a 1st or 2nd floor condo here you’ll walk past a half bath and a galley kitchen into a two-story living /dining room with sliders one above the other.  An open staircase brings you up to a loft-style bedroom with a full-bath and generous closet.

It’s a dramatic space and my thought – after I soaked in the sounds of the brook – was that you could build a really tall bookcase wall here.  It’s a smart setup with the lav downstairs for guests and a private full bath tucked away upstairs.

Most one-bedrooms are about 600 sq.ft. – a bit under or a bit over. There are some two-bedroom units ranging in size from about 800 to 1000 sq.ft. The fourteen units on the third floor are laid out on one level.  There are 69 condos in the building which has an elevator, laundry facilities, and storage cubbies.

Some of the condos in the building are in original condition while others have been smartly updated.

995 is a more traditonal building with 30 condos in a five-story elevator building.  There are  studios, one-bedroom and two-bedroom flats.  Condos on the 2nd – 5th floors have a spacious balcony that can be screened.
