Tia Zaferakis of Conway Cityside is offering the four homes with prices ranging from $799,000 to $1,350,000.
South Boston is a neighborhood undergoing a major transformation with renovations galore and home sales booming. It is one of the city’s hot spots as people shopping for homes discover all that makes this neighborhood so appealing.
South Boston has beaches, parks and plenty of places to shop and eat. There’s also a feel of an old-fashioned neighborhood where people actually do have a chance to get to know each other’s names.
Discovered among the many homes currently being updated, there’s a rare find – new construction.
At 654 East 7th St., a new four-family building is under construction. When finished, this will be a lovely place with the four new homes being built on a vacant lot.
Tia Zaferakis of Conway Cityside is offering the four homes with prices ranging from $799,000 to $1,350,000. Units 1 and 2, on the garden and street levels, include rear covered parking under for one car each in the rear. Both homes offer two bedrooms and two bathrooms.
Units 3 and 4 on the upper two floors offer two-car side-by-side parking. Both of those homes have three bedrooms and two bathrooms each. All four homes have their own private decks.
The homes are expected to be ready for closing in late August.
Brian Kaplan, one of the two developers of this project, said, “Each of the homes is a little different. No two bedrooms are exactly the same and no kitchen is exactly the same.”
Kaplan is working with Mark Little and Abacus Builders and General Contractors on this project.
The workmanship is solid and superb. Careful thought has gone into every aspect of all four homes.
The focus this week is on Unit 2, currently listed for $899,000. This charming home includes approximately 1,236 square feet of living joy.
Environmentally conscious, a Carrier central air conditioning control with a NEST thermostat and a Navien tankless on-demand gas water heater was chosen and installed. There’s easy-on-the-eyes recessed lighting.
The gorgeous five-inch oak flooring throughout this home (except in the bathrooms) with a clear polyurethane satin finish, the refined baseboard moldings throughout and the crown moldings in the kitchen, living room and dining area are aesthetically pleasing. The brushed nickel door hardware and the Benjamin Moore finish paint are more refined high-end touches.
The fluid living area is a great place to enjoy entertaining or simply relax. To handle the audio and visual pleasures, the kitchen and living areas have built-in audio speakers while both
The highly functional, perfectly laid-out and visually appealing kitchen will make meal preparation a breeze. The abundant Macaubas Wave quartz countertops (white with gray hues) and designer ceramic crackle white tile backsplash enhance the white Shaker-style solid-wood cabinets, adding another touch of class. Other elegant features are two pendant lights over the large center island/breakfast bar and polished chrome or brushed nickel cabinet hardware.
Kitchen appliances are from Bosch and include a 30-inch gas range with hood, built-in microwave, refrigerator and dishwasher.
The open dining area is a perfect place to enjoy eating the culinary delights. The new owners will have an allowance of $300 for lighting in that space.
The living area is made more inviting with a large electric fireplace and striking light-gray floor-to-ceiling tile surround.
A glass door slider within an entire wall of glass leads to a large, private covered patio. The patio flooring is pale tan tile that complements the interior red oak hardwood floors.
There are many benefits to having a patio with a roof. Here are a few to consider: you can sit outside at any time, day or night, rain or shine. Although you will be getting your Vitamin D requirements, you will not need to be concerned about getting sunburned from the direct sunrays. You can enjoy the out-of-doors on rainy days without getting wet or fear of melting away. It might even be fun to sit out in the winter and watch the snow fall. Another benefit is having comfortable outdoor furniture that isn’t affected by the elements, so the pieces will last longer. The covered patio – a perfect place for extended entertaining.
The large master bedroom suite is an easy place to relax. Four large windows are perfectly placed to take advantage of the afternoon sunlight. The closets are large enough to handle plenty of clothes and accessories.
The en suite bathroom is attractive and highly functional. The beautiful Italian Carrara wall and heated floor tiles enrich the white Skaker-style vanity cabinet and Cambria Swanbridge quartz vanity top (marbled background with grays and pinpoints of charcoal). The Kohler Verticyl sink has Kingston Brass Continental faucets with a polished chrome finish.
The glass-door shower is large and includes a Delta Vero faucet with two body sprays and a hand-held spray to wash away the tensions while making cleanup easy. Another environmentally sound element is the Kohler dual-flush toilet.
The second bedroom is also spacious with a sizeable closet.
The guest bathroom features designer cottage white tub wall tiles with a beautiful Italian Carrara hex floor pattern. This bath boasts a very inviting five-foot soaking tub, heated floors and a Kohler pedestal sink with a Kingston Brass Continental faucet with polished chrome finish.
The new owners will also have a $1,000 allowance to customize the two bedroom closets with their own desired mix of drawers, shelves and hanging rods.
The laundry area will include an Electrolux washer and dryer.
The location of this home is great. It is a very short walk to the L Street Beach. Castle Island and the Medal of Honor Park are not that far away. It’s easy to find public transportation.
There will be an open house for Unit 2 from 2 to 3:30 p.m. on Sunday, June 10.
