The 3,400-square-foot, three-level house at 15 Rock Hill Street in Medford’s West Medford is on sale as a renovation opportunity—“needs work,” as the Re/Max Andrew listing puts it.
The potential is there for at least seven bedrooms, and the house includes two bathrooms. There are those three levels of living space, too, and a sizable yard surrounds the place as well. The bones of the house—a Dutch gambrel/Victorian hybrid—date from 1900.
What’s the tag just to get things started? Fifteen Rock Hill is asking $879,900, or $258 a square foot. Given the likely renovation costs, it’s appropriate that the asking could be considered a bit of a steal for the Boston area. A recent report pegged the average price per foot for detached single-families in the region at $330. What’d you think?
