New Longmeadow Rehab – Shady Side

Well, we have another rehab in the beautiful town of Longmeadow underway.

This property is a huge executive ranch set in one of the premier neighborhoods of Longmeadow. The home is 3 bedrooms, 2.5 baths, has a huge master suite with master bath, and is nearly 2,600 square feet with a two car garage.

The house was in the same family since it was built and needs tons of updating. We are doing a new kitchen, new baths, new flooring, new paint, new lighting, new roof, new windows, lots of landscaping, new garage doors, new driveway etc…….

Overall its a pretty straight forward rehab, but the sheer size of the house and volume of work will be the main challenge with this project.

We made this deal during the heart of the winter when their was 18 some odd feet of snow on the ground… which made assessing the grounds and exterior of the house a bit more challenging. Once all the snow melted up we realized their was quite a bit more yard clean up and exterior work needed then we thought.  Oh well…. that’s what you get for buying houses in the winter in New England!

Here are some before pics of 130 Shady Side Dr. (Look at all that snow)

There it is….. straight out of the 60’s!!

The house is so big that they have two furnaces to heat the two separate zones of the house.

We’ve had our contractors out working at the house for the last 3 1/2 weeks and it is nearly complete. The guys are flying right along!!!!

I’ll post some updates of the progress soon.
