16 Florence Ave Medford MA 02155

The medford house was nice a new, on a very quite street on top of a hill. It was just as densly packed in. I think it made me realize that one of the things I really want it to stop being in my neighbors lap. I don't want a large yard, but I don't want to be able to spit on my neighbor's house from my window (not that I would.) I think this is one of the things that's really bothering me about this house and loosing T access just for a newer house in about the same neighborhood density is NOT worth it.

53 Lake, billerica, MA

Man, this was a pretty house from the out side. And a lake. Well it was dark, but my heart cries for a lake, don't know why. The biggest problem was the tavern, which was expected, however the problem was supprising. It was not very busy, since it was late on a Monday, but it had an exhast fan out the side of the building pointed at the house and that fan made the most annoying noise. Now it wasn't that loud, but it was loud enough to be heard in my car with the windows closed and it was super super annoying. The parking lot was also right across the street from the house. A real shame. Such a lovely house in such a great setting.

I am getting a better idea of what I want, so all these failures are still productive. I'm still not sure the house I want exists.

In general, they don't...

you should should know that the florence ave house will get a fair bit of traffic noise from 93. You might want to take a look at west medford as well. its kind of like winchester without the taxes and cache.

Really? It was decently far from 93, I felt.

I'm looking "all over." Pretty much anywhere that's a 30 minute drive or less from w92 witha strong preference for "north."

I find going to see houses really helpful to figure out what i want (those kind of less tangible aspects of houses). How important is T access to you by the way?

Given my other constraints I can't see actually keeping T-access. So I think it's something that would be extremely nice, but not really in our budget.

When you find your house, you will know. It won't need justification. But you need to kiss a lot of frogs before you find your prince.
Getting to know where to look for the warts is a worthwhile activity.
