As Hyde Park and Oakley home prices rise, nearby Norwood is starting to get a lot more love. Take this grey brick foursquare with a charming front entry, which is already sale pending.
Wainscoting in the living room and an open-concept kitchen-slash-dining room make the first floor photo-ready; we also like the barn door upstairs and the third floor bonus room.
But of course, we’re partial to stories and this home has one of those, too. Apparently, the previous homeowners also owned a nearby jewelry store for more than fifty years, supplying—among other things—engagement rings to many a Norwood couple. “From what we’ve heard,” say the current owners, “the house was called the ‘love house,’ and the couple could be seen holding hands and walking to work into their 80s.” If that’s not a good omen for the next buyers, we don’t know what is.
