Many Chestnut Hill homes are known to cost a pretty penny, so nice to know that there are other cheaper—and equally charming—options like this 4-bedroom home with a price tag of $299,900.
The 4-bedroom, 1-bath twin is part of the James Monahan house. According to real estate agent Kristin McFeeley, the property was built at the turn of the century in 1886 for laborers and artisans working on some of the larger estates in Chestnut Hill.
Some of its original features from that time remain, including the wide-plank wood floors, millwork, and crown molding.
Over the years, certain rooms of the 1,648-square-foot home have been updated, including the kitchen, which features hand-laid mosaic tiles. The one bathroom on the second level features Art Deco-style tiling and a rounded cast iron tub.
The huge backyard is worth pointing out too, especially for the low price tag. We imagine some pretty epic barbecues and al fresco dining parties could be had there under the pergola and by the fire pit.
Again, the asking price of this home at 7632 Ardleigh Street is $299,900.
