Potential Buyers at Strada 234 (234 Causeway Street), a luxury concierge building in Boston’s North End Waterfront are not left wanting with the panoramic views and amenities offered by unit 1209, a two-bedroom two-bathroom 1,233 square foot condo that has recently been listed for sale.

44 Snow Hill Condos Sold Out

It was somewhat of a long time coming, including a change in listing brokerages, and some price reductions, but the 5-unit new luxury redevelopment at 44 Snow Hill in the North End is now sold out.

We’ve featured 44 Snow Hill several times as one of the best, and most reasonably priced, North End condo developments due to its craftsmanship and attention to detail. The majority of the units sold for over 98% of (the reduced) asking price, and some came with a full year of pre-paid condo fees.

Residents have moved in, and can now enjoy the 90 second (we timed it) walk to the Waterfront. For further details and/or questions on sales at 44 Snow Hill, feel free to contact us, or leave a comment on the blog.

44 Snow Hill

If we were to tell you that there was a small luxury condo development in the North End with the best craftsmanship available, you’d expect that it would be hard to get into the building, wouldn’t you? Well, after being on the market for over 130 days, and going through a price reduction to $499K in May, Unit 3 at 44 Snow Hill is still available.

44 Snow Hill

We’ve featured the development at 44 Snow Hill several times here, and we will continue to do so, because it is one of the most reasonably priced luxury condo developments out of all the new North End condos.

For more information on the two-bedroom, one-bathroom, 723 square foot Unit 3, please contact us.

Cooper Street Condos – The North End

Cooper Street is at the heart of the North End, and there are currently two available Boston condos for sale. 29 Cooper Street is a penthouse two-bedroom, while 52 Cooper Street is a slightly larger penthouse two-bedroom (which has been on the market for almost a year).

Situated in 5-unit and 10-unit buildings respectively, these two penthouse units have nice amenities (in unit washer and dryer, stainless steel appliances, recent upgrades, etc.), and have seen recent price reductions. 52 Cooper Street currently comes with a $3,500 credit at the time of closing (the seller is more than likely motivated after having their condo on the market for what is approaching a year now).

In the North End, you’re oftentimes paying a premium to physically be in the North End – space is tight, the streets are European-like, and it’s a charming place to be. That said, some of the one-bedrooms leave you wanting more.

We visited seven condos, while the first five served as a prelude to the final units on Snow Hill Street…here’s a brief look at the units visited:
