12 - 26 Lake St Somerville MA

The Union Place Townhomes - 12 townhouses on Lake Street in Somerville, MA were built in 2003-2004.  There are four buildings, each with three  three-level townhouses. Whenever I drive down Washington Street in Somerville and notice the view of the Lake Street townhouses I'm delighted - the new pastel paint job is so cheery - it puts a smile on my face every time. Lake Street is a U-shaped street that runs behind Somerville Avenue just as you get to Union Square by the ever popular Market Basket.  The restaurants and shops in Union Square are right around the corner and in a few years we hope there will be a Green Line T stop in the Square.

14-26 Lake Street Features

  • Three level townhouses
  • Two-car garage with direct access
  • Laundry and utility room on the first level
  • Three bedrooms
  • 2.5 baths

14-26 Lake St Somerville Real Estate Sales

The most recent sale at Union Place Townhomes was in 2008 when a townhouse sold for $445,000.   The addresses of the townhouses in the complex are a bit convoluted (see below) making it difficult to pull just the MLS listings for townhouses in the complex.  If any real estate is available on Lake Street Somerville it will appear below.

Cambridge House With A Tree In The Middle

Cambridge House With A Tree In The Middle   I came across this photo from an office tour earlier this year.  It was an amazing house at 44 Grozier Road in West Cambridge.  Designed in the early 1980s by architect /owner Eduardo Catalano, it was definitely one of the most unusual houses we've been lucky enough to tour.
Tree Growing In The Middle Of A Cambridge House

Tree Growing In The Middle Of A Cambridge House

There were many memorable elements but the one that caused the biggest stir was the tree growing up in the middle of the dining area, pictured here. More about Catalano and his most well known designs can be found here, including additional photos of the house on Grozier Road. I can remember a couple of us wondering if the house would be too "out there" for Cambridge home buyers or if perhaps some design enthusiasts would be in the market and able to afford it.  We needn't have worried - the house sold immediately - for more than $400,000 over the asking price.
