The SocketSite Scoop On 67-69 Belcher (As Promised)

Born a furniture warehouse, 67-69 Belcher was destined to be demolished and redeveloped (into condos) in the early 1980’s.

You Had Us At Heated Granite Floors (And We’re Not Granite People)

The little (and not so little) things that caught our eye at 801 Teresita: heated granite floors, a Duravit sink, Axor fixtures and skylight in the bathroom; Scavolini, Sub-Zero, DCS and (two more) skylights in the kitchen; a landscaped backyard (which the master bedroom overlooks); and a corner lot....

Not Overheard Everyday: Don’t Hit Your Head On The Fireplace

Not Overheard Everyday: Don’t Hit Your Head On The Fireplace

It’s the central staircase and fireplace designs that caught our attention. And perhaps it’s also interesting to note that it last changed hands on 2/24/2006 (for what we’re assuming was a pre-remodel price of $1,300,000). ∙ Listing: 1420 Douglass (3/2) – $1,695,000 Read More »

A “Completely Unique Creative Remodel” On Jackson Street

A “Completely Unique Creative Remodel” On Jackson Street

It’s being billed as a “ompletely unique creative remodel…resulting in a modern floor plan that’s open, flexible, yet warm & inviting.” And while we’re definitely conceding the first part, and honestly admire the vision, the kitchen leaves us scratching (and perhaps sympathetically rubbing) our heads. ∙ Listing: 3042 Jackson...

Less “Uber Cool” Cash For An “Uber Cool” House (745 Detroit)

Our original mention generated a bit more debate and controversy than we expected, and we’re really not trying to stir the pot, but we do have to note that the asking price on 745 Detroit was just dropped another $100,000 (now listed $205,000 or 12.1% below original asking). And... Read More »

This Old Church Became This New House On This Old House (Got It?)

And should the listing for 220 Danvers spark some divine design inspiration, keep in mind that 3726 Cesar Chavez remains on the market as well (286 days and counting). UPDATE (9/7): Closed escrow on 8/08/07 for $2,050,000 (3.5% over asking). ∙ Listing: 220 Danvers (3/3) – $1,980,000 ∙... Read More »
