Unit 5 at 30 Howard Street in the Davis Square area of Somerville has sold for $1,750,000, making it the priciest home sale ever in the city.
The record to beat was 2 Foskett Street, which traded for $1,725,000 in April 2015, and Unit 5’s record-smash was not unanticipated.
The penthouse is the product of two combined units carved from part of an old factory. The 4-BR, 2-BA runs to more than 2,500 airy square feet, plus 1,500 square feet of terrace. There are peaked ceilings throughout, never mind plenty of exposed metal.
The giant windows complete the capaciousness of Somerville’s most expensive home sale ever. Ed Greable at Keller Williams had the listing.
