Fixer-Upper Friday: A Multi-Family in Taunton
It's surrounded by just over an acre of land.
68 Railroad Avenue, Taunton
Size: 1,728 square feet
A home listed for $93 per square foot seems unfathomable in Boston’s current market, yet it’s very much a reality at this two-family home in Taunton. Located less than an hour outside of Boston, the building certainly needs some work. There’s freeze damage, missing plumbing, and non-functioning utilities—nothing some good old-fashioned elbow grease can’t fix, right?
Inside, the house has hardwood floors, spacious units, and a finished space on the third level. The property, which sizes up to 1.25 acres, includes a reasonably large detached garage. There’s also a second building on the lot, which could be converted into an in-law apartment, a workshop, or a studio.
With a fairly low asking price of $159,000, there’s plenty of room in the renovation budget to create chef’s kitchen and a master suite. Plus, when it’s finished, the second unit can be rented out, further defraying the costs of this soon-to-be dream home.
