Light streams in through the oversized windows.  If you like high ceilings you’ll love 185 Morrison.  I don’t know how high these ceilings are – very high is all I can say!  There’s a wall of built-in bookcases in the expansive dining / living room and a library ladder to help you reach the top shelves.  The original chalk wells remain as a reminder of the building’s origins.

The list of improvements is long and includes a sleekly styled kitchen renovation with Liebherr and Jenn-Air appliances and Caesarstone counters, a remodeled bathroom with Duravit sink and rain shower head, custom lighting throughout, oodles of custom fitted closets, replacement windows and more.

There’s a parking space behind the building, a spot to stow your bike downstairs, extra storage and common laundry. 

The photographer came this morning so check back for some beautiful shots of 185 Morrison Ave in Somerville.  The condo comes on the market tomorrow and can be seen by appointment or at the open houses on Friday, April 19th from 5 – 7 pm and Saturday and Sunday, April 20th & 21 from 1 to 2:30 pm.  If you’d like more info or want to set up an appointment please call Liz Bolton of ReMax Destiny- that’s me! – at 617-504-1737.

NorthPoint Cambridge

NorthPoint Cambridge

NorthPoint Cambridge

Last week, as part of our weekly tour, ReMax Destiny agents headed over to NorthPoint Cambridge.  Condos at NorthPoint have been selling like hotcakes so we were excited to get a presentation about the development and to tour a number of condos.  Amy Clements, Sales Director at NorthPoint, and a representative from the development group spoke to us about what’s in the works.

NorthPoint Cambridge is a 45-acre parcel.  A former railyard, the property will be transformed into a new Cambridge neighborhood featuring a 10-acre park at its center.  It will be a mixed use community with residential space – both apartments and condos, office and lab space, retail establishments, and a public transportation stop once the Lechmere Green Line T stop is relocated to NorthPoint.

Development stalled at Northpoint Cambridge in 2007 when the original owners became embroiled in a court battle.  The project is back on track after new investors, including former LA Laker Magic Johnson, took over in 2010.  Condos at NorthPoint are now selling like hotcakes with more than 30 contracts signed in January 2013.

Plans for North Point include a total of twenty buildings.   There will be three million square feet of residential space, 2700 residential units in total.  The next phase of development at NorthPoint Cambridge will be a 20-story, 355 unit luxury apartment building.  That building will include:

  • 8000 sq. ft. of retail space
  • “Click cafe”
  • Basketball court
  • Outdoor lounge / bar for residents

Today the condominiums at North Point are in two buildings, constructed in 2008.  1  Earhart (formerly called Sierra) and 2 Earhart Street (formerly called Tango) have over 300 units between them.  The smaller building, One Earhart / Sierra, has 99 condos.  Two Earhart / Tango has 230 units and includes a 12-story tower.  Many of the condos are two-level loft style units.

When we toured the development last week 78% of the condos had sold and closed.  86% were sold or under agreement.  Given the pace of sales those numbers have probably changed by now.

Northpoint Cambridge Condos Feature

  • Condo fee includes heat and hot water
  • Parking
  • 24/7 concierge with a desk in 2 Earhart
  • On site building manager
  • Bamboo floors
  • Central air conditioning
  • In-unit laundry hookup
  • Some condos have a patio, deck or Juliet balcony
  • Stylish finishes, fixtures and appliances including Arclinea cabinets, Phillipe Stark Duravit sinks, and Bosch dishwashers
  • Two pets allowed – no breed or weight restrictions

Residents at NorthPoint have easy access to the Green Line at Lechmere and to the Orange Line at the Bunker Hill stop.  The EZRide bus service stops at North Point and continues to Kendall Square, MIT and North Station.  Boston is a hop, skip and a jump away and the Charles River is just down the street.

Here are some of the condos for sale at NorthPoint Cambridge.  There may be others available – to see all the options we need to visit the development.   If you’d like more info or want to see condos at NorthPoint I would be happy to arrange for a presentation and tour.  Amy Clements, the Sales Director at NorthPoint, explained that she is happy to work with other agents – so having an agent represent you will not be an issue and will not mean that you pay any more.  Give me a call at 617-504-1737 or email me at [email protected] and we’ll explore NorthPoint together.  Liz Bolton, ReMax Destiny

Modern Cambridge Condo With a Yard

369 Franklin St Cambridge MA

369 Franklin St Cambridge MA

New to the market, 369 Franklin Street Unit 101 in Cambridge offers a rare combination – a condo in a modern elevator building with its own exclusive use yard and patio.

After looking for several months with a Cambridge real estate buyer this year, I know how difficult it is to find a modern Cambridge condo with *any* outdoor space – even a small balcony to call your own.  369 Franklin Unit 101 is truly exceptional with sliders from the living room to a private patio and a yard space that extends the depth of the building.

Inside, the condo has one bedroom plus a second that’s been converted to an office with a beautiful built-in desk.  The condo has bamboo floors, central air conditioning, in-unit laundry, a garage parking space, and a kitchen with Corian counters, a gas stove, and plenty of cabinets.  The building is extremely energy efficient and has an elevator and a small penthouse exercise room with a great Boston skyline view.  It’s a pet friendly building with one household pet allowed and a second with trustee approval.

Listed at $489,000 by Elizabeth Bolton – that’s me! – 369 Franklin Street Unit 101 can be shown by appointment or at several open houses this week.  Call me for more information at 617-504-1737 or click on the Contact button above to send me an email.
