Weekend Opens (4/25-4/26)

Posted by Dave Fratello on Saturday, April 25th, 2009 at 5:24am.

First things first, we're making a small change to the comment system – disabling the "threading" that was initially an attraction of the new system.

They've done some "upgrades" recently to the system, and you know what that means: bugs.

As to actual real estate news, though there are plenty of Hill Section offerings this weekend, none are new, so if you're interested in the Hills, we'll just refer you this week to the complete list of opens published in the Beach Reporter, which you can find at any time using the link in the right-hand column under "Prop. Search Tools."

As always, click on any highlighted address for more pics & details via Redfin. We ask MBC readers who visit these homes – or any open houses – to also report back in the comments here. Tell us what you see, what you like and what you don't like.


Sand Section

501 4th (5br/5b, 4100 sq. ft.) just got a mention Friday, too. It qualifies as a must-see this Sunday.

The home is a newer build (2005) down in the quiet South End, on a corner along Ingleside. Offers big bedrooms, nice outdoor spaces and a bright kitchen.

Purchase price in June 2006: $2.750m, now at $2.599m.

Open Sun. 2-4pm.



Tree Section

599 26th (5br/4ba, 3525 sq. ft.) is less than 10 years old (2001 build) and has lots of charm, but its corner lot also abuts fairly busy Blanche Rd. That'll be a problem.

A fantastic great room heads the list of our favorite parts. The lot's a bit bigger than the norm (5120 sq. ft.) and that affords a little more outdoor space, which is nice, if shady.

Pricing is interesting: acquired new in early 2001 for $1.275m, which was a lot back then. Now begins at $1.995m. Open Sat. & Sun. 1-4pm.


3528 Palm does not look like much, by profile.

Officially, it's 2br/1ba, 840 sq. ft. That's what $925k buys?

The listing explains that there's more to it – 2 additional structures that can't be counted, officially, but which you can enjoy nonetheless: a "large separate back house" and a "zen room."

Wow, a cottage had babies. Open Sun. 2-4pm.
