$400K in Roslindale: You Never Do Hear About 'Music Rooms'

Where: 595 South Street
Price: $400,000
Sale Date: May 29
Square Footage: 1,900
The Skinny: There's lots to like in this sprawling single-family in Roslindale near the Arnold Arboretum: the enclosed front porch, the two-car garage, the fenced-in yard, the French doors, the wood-burning fireplace. But the last owner liked the space itself: Witness what appear to be two music rooms, one on the first floor and the other tucked in the basement. Brokers mention "offices," "in-law apartments," "au paire suites," "studies," etc., though you never read much about "music rooms" unless it's a titanically expensive listing. (You don't with this Roslindale listing, either: the listing photos did the talking.)
