This brick bow-front building suitably named Shailer Street Condominiums, is a quintessential model of Coolidge Corner residences and is the perfect illustration why so many homebuyers look to set down roots within these charming section of Brookline. This particular top-floor unit  is especially appealing, not only due to its spacious accommodations and location, but also for its economical value. An extensive gut renovation was performed only six short years ago, which included new electrical and plumbing systems, walls, windows, bathrooms and a renovated kitchen. What's left? Only to unpack and enjoy its comfortable surroundings and all that Coolidge Corner has to offer.

This spacious one-floor unit boasts over 1,600 square feet of living space within seven liberally-sized rooms. The bright and cheerful 12 x 17 square foot living room has been bathed in lime-yellow walls for a warm, welcoming reception while the neighboring 11 x 18 square foot dining area flaunts its 1930's vintage roots with a wood built-in china cabinet and wainscoting. The renovated 11 x 11 eat-in kitchen provides an inviting, comfortable setting with sage green cabinets and two windows drenching the space with natural sunlight.

Two generously-sized bedrooms at 14 x 11 and 10 x 14 square feet also contribute to the sizeable square footage within this unit as well as two full baths. Other amenities included in the unit are a laundry center, central air conditioning, nine-foot ceilings, ceiling fans, a hard-wired security system, exclusive roof deck rights and many diverse closet and storage solutions.

This complex is located in the heart of Coolidge Corner which is known for its plethora of retailing, restaurants and cultural activities and is easily accessible to public transportation. Also, its extensive renovations minimize future financial repairs, and that, coupled with its recent price reduction and extremely desirable location, make this a real estate investment a potential Brookline homebuyer cannot pass by.
