Welcome to Centers and Squares

As a Cambridge real estate agent, the city squares of Cambridge, Somerville and Medford and the town centers of Arlington, Watertown and Belmont, Massachusetts are my home turf. And as a lifelong New Englander who’s lived within twenty miles of Boston most of my life, I can introduce you to other nearby towns as we search for your new home. If you’re planning to sell your home in Cambridge, MA or nearby you’ll find plenty of info about the home selling process here too. Questions? Send me an email or call me at 617-504-1737.

10 Francis Street Somerville – Single Family House for Sale

10 Francis St Somerville MA

10 Francis St Somerville MA

10 Francis Street in Somerville is a four bedroom house on Somerville’s Spring Hill above Porter Square.  It’s one of my favorite properties I’ve sold and it’s ready for new owners.

When I look for houses one of the most important criteria for me is charm – it’s a know-it-when-you-see-it quality and it’s in limited supply in the real estate search most days.  10 Francis Street has charm to spare.  High ceilings, maple and oak floors, lovely bullseye moldings, an amazing, beautifully trimmed archway, bay windows, a beautiful staircase to the third floor, stained glass – lots of wonderful details, sun streaming in the windows – it all adds up to something that gives that internal “click” that makes me fall in love with a place.

The house was lovingly maintained but not updated by long term owners.  The current owners have made important upgrades – replaced the furnace, updated the electric to 200 amps, rewired ceiling fixtures, and added some IKEA modular kitchen storage units.  New owners will probably opt to redo the floors, paint, etc.  There’s one full bath on the second floor and a functioning 1/4 bath in the cellar.

The yard is fully enclosed and there’s room to garden out back.  The sellers have planted a couple of fruit trees, blueberry bushes, raspberry bushes (that yielded many pints last year), and more.  Parking is on street with a resident permit.

10 Francis Street is walkable to Porter Square, Davis Square, and the bike path. 

10 Francis Street, Somerville MA is coming on the market for $469,000.  Showings begin on Wednesday, February, 23, 2012.  Call Liz Bolton at Coldwell Banker (that’s me!) at 617-504-1737 for more information or to schedule a visit.  I can also be reached via email at [email protected].
