309 Park Street, $1,800,000

Two New Houses at 309 Park Street Backing Up to the Bristow Bird Sanctuary and Mead Park

The house in front, known as "Northeast", is 3322 square feet on four levels and has the option of an elevator. If the new owner does not want an elevator then there is a laundry room on the second floor and a food pantry on the first. 

The most striking difference between the two units is the placement of the garage. On the front house the garage is in the basement, freeing up extra space on the first floor for an office and a library. The rear house, "Southwest" is 3276 square feet and boasts a large, open plan with French doors to the back yard on the basement level perfect for a media room and pool table.

While these two houses are advertised as 3 bedroom, it would be a simple matter to add a bathroom on the third floor to support a fourth bedroom. 

These two houses have all of the features we've come to expect in Kaeser's homes such as gourmet kitchens with Wolf, SubZero and Miele appliances, Carrera marble countertops, custom cabinetry and millwork throughout. These houses have 9 foot ceilings on the first floor and 8 foot ceilings on the basement, second and third floors. They are heated with propane and sealed with Thermoseal closed-cell blown insulation.

Come this weekend to another open house and see for yourself why these two houses are so outstanding.

Under Construction: Two Freestanding Luxury Condominiums Bordering the Bristow Bird Sanctuary

This is the original concept for the two units proposed at 309 Park Street showing the Southwest condominium up by the street and the Northeast condominium in back. The plan showing a driveway between the units was changed to a left-side driveway in order to give each one a private yard. 

The first floor plan of the Southwest condominium (in front) features an open-plan kitchen/great room on the left, glass doors opening to a balcony on either side of the fireplace, and a side porch which opens onto a private side yard. 

On the second floor of the Southwest condo there are three bedrooms, all with ensuite bathrooms.  In front is a generous Master bedroom with walk-in closet. 

The biggest difference between the two condos is probably having a first floor garage on the rear condo. While convenient, it reduces first floor square feet by about 300 feet. Putting the garage underneath allows for the potential of a first floor bedroom instead. 

Rented and Rented: 474 Main Street

Both of the 4 bedroom condos at 474 Main Street were rented shortly after they were completed.

Here is a photo of the two units from the southwest corner.
