1870 Beacon Home for $315,000

This nicely updated Beacon home boasts a lovely garden as well as mountain views. As with many of the properties you’ll find in Beacon, this one wouldn’t be about bucolic country living but rather relocation to an artsy little town where you can get a nice house for your money.

And this house is nice, though not extravagant. I like the spacious yard, the gleaming white moldings and the clawfoot tub. The attic has been converted into a studio for work-at-homers. According to public records, the house was bought ten years ago for $176,000, so the price jump shows the big upswing in the Beacon real estate market. That said, the sellers originally listed this one as $339,000 six months ago, and they’ve come down on the price twice. How much do you think this one is worth?

Stats on the jump.
