The old house at 275 Concord Street dated to 1959. And, whew, did it ever look it.
The 1,300-square-foot, single-story midcentury was pretty tired by 2013, sagging so much it resembled a piece of cheese that had dried out at the back of the fridge.
The few photos of the old interior matched the outside: about as dynamic and exciting as a bowl of oatmeal in this day and age. So when the house sold that year for $655,000, an overhaul commenced.
What came out the other side this year is a four-bed, three-bath, two-story looker that’s listing for just under $1 million.
The facade now resembles a more sleek and confident version of its old self. The interior packs in light, life, and a lot of open space than was evident in the aging version of the same building, with maple floors, barn-style doors, and some drought-friendly landscaping out back.
Concord Street is a short stretch in Crocker-Amazon, only about 1,500 feet from the city’s southernmost limits. Further north, a house like this would start at seven figures, so it will be interesting to see whether style or location wins out in setting the final price.
