Hi.

Welcome to the MASH where we gossip about current real estate listings.

Enjoy!

44 Mayfield Avenue - SWANSEA

44 Mayfield Avenue - SWANSEA

This is a 3 bedroom, 5 bathroom house on a 27 x 115.33 foot lot at 44 Mayfield Avenue in Swansea.

And with that lot size, with that many bathrooms, I don't get why this isn't a 4 bedroom house.

Especially since, from the before floor plans...

It looks like they gutted the whole house.

Here are the before photos (and I included them all because they are worth the look) from when it was listed in April 2015 first at $899,000 only to have an increase 6 days later to $969,000...

I'm not sure what it sold for, but 8 months later, the place has been flipped and is back on the market.

For the most part, I like what they have done (I am not including the brick on the front).   I'm not sure I am really into the glossy, grey cupboards, but they are fine.  The rooms are a good size with good bathrooms.

I just wish they had built a 2 storey addition to provide more first floor living space and to add another bedroom (or maybe just move the 2nd to 3rd floor staircase that is taking up a LOT of room).

And at an initial asking price of $1,799,900, I think people would expect more living space and a 4th bedroom.

So, it's not much of a surprise that this place had a price drop.

The new asking price is $1,699,900.

It still needs another drop.
