Property of the Week: 5 Essex Street, Somerville

Posted on June 24, 2011


Have you thought about owning a two-family home in Somerville? Maybe living in one unit and renting out the other to help pay your mortgage? How about a place that’s both in great condition and has potential because of its proximity to a future Green Line T stop?

Don’t miss my new listing at 5 Essex Street, Somerville! This lovely 2-family home is tucked away on a pleasant side street while still being close to shops on Medford Street (.6 miles to Magoun Square) and around the corner from Highland Ave (.4 miles to Highland Kitchen restaurant).

Inside the home offers 2665 square feet of living area, elegant high ceilings, hardwood floors, a beautiful owner’s unit with a modern eat-in kitchen, updated bath, spacious living/dining room, decorative fireplace mantle, pocket doors and a pantry/study. Upstairs is a 6 room, 4 bedroom apartment with 2 full baths and a modern kitchen with granite counters. This unit is currently rented for $2250/month. There are laundry hook-ups for each unit in the basement plus a finished room and 3/4 bath (not included in the square footage). Systems include 1 heating system with 2 zones (forced hot water by gas), 2 hot water heaters and circuit breaker electric.

Outside are 2 off-street parking spaces, a pretty bed of climbing roses in front and a private, beautifully landscaped garden and patio in the back. Offered at $559,000.

First Open House Sunday, June 26th, 12-2 PM.
