Great Value But Not Selling

Margaret Szerlip…Newton, Top Brokers

72 Beacon Street, Chestnut Hill…..I am not the listing agent for this house….I do wonder why it hasn’t sold.  Great location, substantial brick home, 5 bedrooms, 6 1/2 reovated baths, new windows, amazing views.  So what’s wrong with this house?  The only thing wrong with this house is the paint colors!  Just imagine this house painted in light airy colors all relating to one another with the same trim throughout the entire house.   It would make the house a much more modern looking.  This house is a MUCH better buy than a cookie cutter newer house in Newton.  Call me if you would like to view this home.  617-921-6860
