The holidays are a surprisingly good time for Real Estate, especially for exclusive homes that appeal to discerning buyers.
Even though the Spring market is the traditional “hot” time for buying and selling homes, the end of the year has some distinct advantages for property owners, such as lower inventory volume and committed purchasers. Add to this the allure of luxury homes, potentially decked out in their festive finest, and suddenly, the December temps for real estate just got warmer.
Two stunning properties that fit the winter bill are offered by respected Coldwell Banker agent Felicia Captain. NEL teased the first, 20 Old Farm Road in Newton (pictured above), in our Fall print issue’s profile of Captain, but now this estate-like home is fully completed and ready for its first owner. Designed and built by esteemed local firm Arco Design & Build, the elevated transitional/contemporary home features the finest of finishes, expansive living spaces, and more than 1/2 acres in a beautiful neighborhood. “This is quite a unique property,” says Captain “It really stands out in terms of design and luxury.”
The six-bedroomed 82 Sargent Road, in Brookline’s exclusive Sargent Estates, is the second listing that Captain feels is a dream home for the right buyer. “This nearly 9,000 square foot home in a parklike setting is perfect for someone who appreciates the exclusivity of the neighborhood, ” she says, noting that this private-feeling section of Brookline is home to many notable individuals and immensely appealing to sophisticated buyers.
Either of these magnificent properties would be the consummate new home for a buyer with an eye toward luxury, quality, and idyllic suburban living.
