The Muncey Group listing for the 2,910-square-foot brick colonial at 29 Rockwood Terrace in Jamaica Plain’s Moss Hill area makes it very clear right away: “Opportunity knocks for developer/builders or end-users seeking to make their vision a reality!”
In short, the 60-year-old house needs some work. Or it needs to be knocked down.
It sits amid a 15,910-square-foot lot born of the combination of two parcels. And that lot is in a prime location, near as it is to the Arborway and to parkland such as the Arnold Arboretum and Larz Anderson.
The house itself does come with touches such as a recently repainted exterior and a brick facade, two wood-burning fireplaces, and a finished lower level not included in the above square-footage.
Either way—as a renovation or a development opportunity—29 Rockwood will cost you as only a Boston fixer-upper can: It’s retailing for $1.25 million.
