Movin’ On: Our Condo For Sale!

Andrew and I have decided to sell our condo- I’m itching for a new personal project and location wise it makes more sense for us and our work to be in the heart of the city until we find a house to renovate somewhere slightly “burb-esque”. E-mail me for pricing and addition information- and please pass along to anyone you know who might be interested!

28 Prince Street, Boston, MA
The unit is the first floor of an craftsman style home, renovated in 2007 on one of the prettiest and most desirable streets of the Pondside area of Jamaica Plain- Jamaica Pond at one end, the Arnold Arboretum at the other end! Perfect for a young family, this area of Boston is a fantastic mix of a suburban neighborhood feel (there is a street potluck every summer) with the convenience of the city. The shops and restaurants of Center Street are a 5 minute walk and you can be in Back Bay or at Fenway in 10 minutes!

The details:
*1,450 square feet.
* 3 large bedrooms/ 2 full marble and granite baths.
* Central air/ heat and radiant heat floors in the kitchen and baths for chilly winter mornings!
* Renovated HUGE eat in kitchen with granite, stainless steel appliances.
* Pantry with wine fridge and built in wine rack and glass cabinetry.
* Private patio/yard and deck.
* Wood burning fireplace.
* Tons of storage and half the basement deeded to the unit for storage (full size washer and dryer down there) or could be finished for a gym/ workshop/etc.
* Featured on the cover and in the Boston Globe Magazine.
* Included with purchase is a 10 hours of design time with Erin Gates of Element Interiors to make the space your own (would also entertain selling it furnished if desired)!

E-mail Erin at for more information!

  3. I LOVE your home! What paint color did you use in your living room and hallway? I’m new to your blog and haven’t gone through your archives yet!

  4. I am still totally in love with your little pantry!! Good luck with the sale!!

  5. Your place is gorgeous and I am sure it will sell quickly. I love it how you include with the condo 10 hours of design services :) I would love to see the new makeover of your existing condo and of the new place, of course.

    I saw a post a couple of days ago on AT that someone was looking for a condo in JP. You should definitely email that person.

    Good luck with the condo sale and real estate hunting for the Beacon Hill digs!!!

  6. Where in Boston are you planning on moving to next? Can’t wait to see what you do with the new house!

    Also, where did you get your chairs in your living room? They’re exactly what I’m looking for.

  7. Best wishes selling your place quickly. Can’t wait to see your next project. Cheers!

  8. I love everything about your place! You will sell it in no time…and the 10 hrs of design time will certainly sweeten the deal!

  9. Good Luck! I don’t think you will have a hard time selling it at all! Its beautiful.
    Light a Votivo Candle, Red current during your open houses. Many of my girlfriends have had amazing luck selling when they do that! Have fun!!!!
    XOXO, Alexandra

  10. i absolutely love your white dining room chairs! I sell real estate in GA, good luck!!

  11. what a fabulous home! absolutely beautiful. Now if only I were moving to Boston and actually had the funds to purchase my own home ; ) Good luck!

  12. I have always loved your condo- I wish the BF and I were in the market to buy at the moment. I would snap it up in a heartbeat!

  13. I would totally love to live there! I’m so excited to see what you do to your new house! Good luck with everything. =)

  14. I’m sure you’ll have no problem selling your house. It’s really lovely! I’m a little sad since I’ve seen a lot of your projects shown here but that means there will be a new space your talented hands will get a hold of and we’ll hopefully see those transformations here!

  15. I think it is fabulous that you are including design time in the sale, but I don’t know how anyone will improve on perfection!

  16. Your condo is beautiful! I remember reading about your space a while back. I was very impressed and it was inspiring too, because the architecture of my house is so similar. I’m sure you’ll have nooooo problem selling.
    Congratulations on taking the leap!

  17. Well, I bet this won’t last long! Love the little doggie on the sofa, the master and those wonderful dining chairs. Looking forward to seeing your next project! (Sure you won’t miss this beauty?!) -susan

  18. If you decide to sell your art and furniture before moving out, you better let us know of when and what because I will be right there for that yard sale :)

  19. How lucky your buyers will be! I’ll spread the word. SO happy because I think you are considering the South Shore, my neck of the woods!?? Yippee!! I have THE BEST REALTOR ever for you. So nice, hard-working and all- around awesome. She loooooves to show houses as much as I (still) like looking at them. Peggy Dinger, Coastal Countryside in Cohasset 781 771-3270.

  20. Oh Erin, congrats on moving on. You’ll surly have some of the best MLS photos the area has seen in a long time!

    P.S. I used to live on the other side of the pond, at 100 Goddard. I lived in the servants quarters of the main house. What a wonderful neighborhood! :)

  21. I wish you lots of luck Erin! And even though we have our home, I would gladly purchase your dining room set :).

  22. hi! I love the chair in your kitchen area… my parents use to have one and I hated it but I adore how you (I presume) painted it black! What's this style chair called?
