So, there’s that house you always pass, and you think, “what a cool little dormer — that window is only 12″x12″.” You think, “why doesn’t someone slap a coat of paint on that miniature bungalow?” You think, “Boo Radley lives there.”
Beverly has some beautiful vernacular architecture, but the contractor’s special at 73 Livingston Avenue is a gem for lovers of small-footprint antique houses. Once this place has been loved into a “condo alternative,” someone is going to have a unique piece of Beverly history. $199 per square foot, great neighborhood, convenient access to I128, closer to the train than my house!
This is a nice Tudor in the very posh Beverly Cove area: 16 Corning Street is just $257 per square foot at $485k.
2 Locust Street is in the Kernwood Neighborhood, which I wrote about last week — country club, graveyard, close to the water….$210 per sqare foot.
