Here’s a look at recent Cambridge triple-decker sales.
Many of Cambridge’s triple deckers have been converted from rental housing to condominiums. But there are a good number of extant triple-deckers and seven have changed hands since the beginning of the year.
Like most of Cambridge real estate this year, three-deckers sold quickly and well. Three of the seven sold for over asking. The average time on market was 36 days but five sold in two weeks or less.
These three-deckers were all around town – Strawberry Hill, Cambridgeport, Inman Square, North Cambridge, Huron Village, and just outside Harvard Square.
Here are the triple deckers that have sold so far in 2012 in Cambridge. The second column shows the total room, bedroom and bath count.

Arlington Historical Society Triple Decker Lecture This Tuesday, Stuart Brorson of the Arlington Historical Society will give a talk on “The ‘Menace” of the Triple Decker” that will answer the question – if you ever thought to wonder – why there are so many triple deckers in Cambridge and Somerville but relatively few in Arlington and other nearby towns.
Brorson’s lecture will touch on architectural features of the triple-decker, public perceptions of this new style of building, and what the triple-decker can tell us about the period in which it was popular.
There’s relatively little information readily available about triple deckers so this is a not to be missed event for architecture enthusiasts or for anybody who’s ever called a triple decker home.
“The ‘Menace’ of the Triple Decker” lecture is scheduled for 7:30 pm on Tuesday, October 26, 2010 at the Arlington Heights Nursery School, 10 Acton St, Arlington, MA 02476.
Open to the public. Admission is free for Arlington Historical Society members or $3 for non-members.
