Transit-oriented development is definitely the wave of the future in the Hub (or at least a wave of the future). This 103-year-old manse in Brookline, however, has embraced the trend as well.
The $1,899,000 listing from The Gillach Group for 25 Cotswold Road not only touts the 5-BR's "welcoming open floorplan w/ stunning details" and its "great light & finished office in the bsmnt." and its "central air + renovated master bath"—it also touts the 4,405-square-foot house's "perfect location!" How dang perfect? In walking distance of two branches of the Green Line. Twenty-five Cotswold last traded for $1,700,000 in December 2008, just after the economy fell apart. This marks its post-Great Recession debut. Applause.
