East Boston Home Sells in One Day

Recently, Tony’s Realty was fortunate to have listed a beautiful Eagle Hill single family home that sold in one day. Located on the first block of Princeton Street, this traditional Eagle Hill colonial was owned for many decades by the same family; it was put up for sale after the owner, a devoted Eagle Hill resident and community member, passed away.

A historic property built in the mid 1800s the home had been completely upgraded after a fire thirty-four years ago. While plumbing, wiring, insulation, and roofing were relatively new, the house had many remnants of the 1970s. Over the last six months, the owner’s family made every effort to make this historical home looks its best. They removed paneling from walls, tore up carpets and sanded original wooden floors, replaced bathroom fixtures, cleared out the back garden area and repainted every room. Extra furniture was removed, and a wrought iron staircase railing was replaced with a traditional wooden one. The kitchen had already been beautifully renovated.

The property looked like a model home, exemplary of one of Eagle Hill’s best homes. Also, the family knew it was best to competitively price this property so that it would not stay on the market in a sluggish economy. The house sold at its first open house to a wonderful family proud to take over from the previous family by calling this Princeton Street property “their home.”
