The 2,202-square-foot cape at 77 Fairway Road in Brookline’s slice of Chestnut Hill could use some work. The wallpaper looks especially dated as does the pain, and the kitchen is in need of an upgrade.
But the 80-year-old three-bedroom, three-bathroom house has a sublime location: Just off Boylston Street and near Boston College. It’s also reasonably close to the Green Line.
And there is some charm in the bones, including the hardwood floors; and then, of course, there is the in-ground pool out back.
How much for the whole shebang? $1.399 million through Compass.
