Firehouse #2

I’ve always had a soft spot for the Firehouse at 1406 Harvard Ave just down the street from me. Unit #2 just came on the market.

It’s listed at $449k. They bought it for $509k back in March of 2006 and unfortunately paid a large premium since the sale before that was for $465k in February 2005.

    Looks nice, but you know that when it comes to converted firehouses, my heart will always belong to .

    Too much wood – the interior looks like a sauna. And would it kill them to list a square footage?

    btw, that Unhappy Hipsters site is hi-larious!

    From an old listing it looks like it is 1000 square feet.

    Almost bought there when they were first selling, they had been apartments. Somebody spent a lot of money fixing that unit up, cause they sure didn't look that nice when they were apartments. In fact it was the cost (and time) of fixing the units up which stopped me from buying – my mistake.
