Summer Avenue in Reading Boasts Gorgeous Historic Homes And 176 Summer is One Of Them

Summer Avenue in Reading, MA has been touted as one of the most desirable streets North of Boston to live on. Boston Magazine featured it in an article a few years ago in 2007 called: If You Lived Here...You'd Never Want to Leave. In fact, that year was 2007. (Oh, by the way: The average price per square foot sold for homes on Summer Ave in 2007? $216. And in 2017? $317. The Average Days Until Offer? How about 132 in 2007 and 15 in 2017! ) Obviously, the cache of Summer Avenue, and the "West Side" of Reading as whole has not dwindled for a moment, but  has actually grown, in the hot real estate market North of Boston. 

176 Summer Avenue, a sprawling, historic 5 Bedroom / 2.5 Bathroom Greek Revival is back on the market. Last year it was listed for $849,000 and now has been re-marketed for $899,000. Sure, it needs some updating, but with features such as a wrap-around farmer's porch, double-parlor living room, fireplaced library, top floor "turret" with majestic views of the West Side of Reading, and bonus ENORMOUS barn ready to be renovated, this home is dream waiting for the right buyer.
