Eagle Hill Attracts New Condo Buyers

In September, Tony’s Realty successfully sold three condos in a newly redeveloped triple-decker on Princeton St in Eagle Hill. The condos ranged from 801 to 841 square feet, and the selling prices were between $220,000 and $235,000.

These units have many of the modern day amenities found in new condos: stainless appliances; granite countertops; hardwood floors; central air; ample storage. Two units have two bathrooms, and one has a private patio.

Eagle Hill has become attractive to some condo buyers because they can often get more square footage in a quality product than can be found in other East Boston neighborhoods. They “get more bang for their buck.”

The neighborhood has traits buyers find attractive: quaint local restaurants like Rino’s, Saigon Restaurant, and Angela’s Café; small corner stores; diverse architecture; and a diversity among residents that includes recent immigrants, East Boston natives, families, and young professionals. There have also been some recent and wonderful improvements such as the new fountain at Souza/Putnam Square, the Border St Community Gardens, and the Condor St Urban Wildlife area. And Eagle Hill’s proximity to the new Bremen St Park, especially its new Airport T Station, is making the neighborhood attractive to many buyers who realize it is within walking distance to a new Blue Line T Station. More successful Eagle Hill condo developments similar to this recent Princeton St property are expected.
