360 Cummins Highway, Roslindale
Size: 1,430 square feet
Fixer-uppers within city limits aren’t exactly bargains. Although this two-family in Roslindale is listed for $599,999, the property’s value lies in its expansion potential.
Built in 1910, the three-bedroom home is situated on a 10,000-square-foot lot. That’s reasonably large for being on a busy thoroughfare like Cummins Highway, especially with its spacious backyard and off-street parking area. It’s this extra room on the property that makes it ideal for expansion.
The house, of course, needs a slew of updates, which are not limited to a scrubbing of the exterior and cosmetic retouches on the inside. However, there’s plenty of room for an addition in the back—perhaps a few extra rental units or a sleek-looking workshop. The grassy yard means there’s potential to get creative with landscape design, too. You’ll just need to bring your imagination.
