The magic Of A Two Family House

Sold For: $1,720,000

Flexibility, space and value are the hallmarks of two family ownership. Combined with a smart renovation, they make 110 Fayerweather Street truly irresistible. The current owners live in the upper duplex to which they’ve made many thoughtful improvements over the years. They opened up the back of the house to create a large and bright kitchen/living space with a big island, endless storage, and the tools needed to do some serious cooking. During much of the year they move seamlessly between their kitchen, their “proper” dining room and their cozy living room. In the warmer months, they have the additional option of spending their evenings on the screened porch (right off the kitchen) or sitting under the stars on the protected rear patio. Upstairs there are three bedrooms: one for their daughter, one for guests and a master bedroom for themselves. They mostly park their 2 cars in the driveway yet there is a small garage for a compact car – they use it for storage. And finally, they reap the benefit from the one-bedroom apartment which is currently leased for $2,000/month.
