West Roxbury cape sells fast after steep discount

House had been in the same family for nearly 60 years

The 1,428-square-foot cape at 14 Hackensack Circle in West Roxbury dropped on the sales market on Aug. 19 for $687,000. Its price quickly came down to $649,000—and the 3-BR, 2.5-BA spread that had been in the same family nearly 60 years just closed for $615,000.

That is $72,000 off the original asking for those scoring along at home.

The seven-room house dates from 1950, and includes touches such as a screened-in porch, new recessed lighting, and a fenced-in backyard.
