317 Spruce St
This cozy condominium sits within a former "row house" at the intersection of Orange Street and Spruce Street in Chelsea. It stands just four blocks east of the location where Spruce Street passes underneath Highway 1 and the Revere Beach Parkway. Residential properties line this street.
Developers constructed the original building in 1900. It attaches to the neighboring brownstone on the east. Part of the building projects into the rear, and today includes at least one deck.
This multistory mid-rise building consists mainly of red brick masonry and decorative white stone trim, with red and white siding on the upper level of the home (which includes dormers). It offers a duplexed front entrance, accessed with steps. Rectangular windows in the building admit natural light, contributing to a bright, airy ambiance. On either side of the central portion of this structure, the sides form angled casements, a style consistent with that of the adjoining residence.
Enjoy the Convenient Nearby Public Transportation
A small paved parking lot partially surrounded by a chain link fence adjoins the building on the west; online sources do not indicate whether or not this amenity belongs to the condo. Reportedly, today this condominium includes at least three units, including both one and two bedroom units.
Online sources do not indicate extensive information concerning the current condo association HOA fee. The units range in size from under 600 square feet to more than 700 square feet. Some units enjoy a fireplace and mantle, and many offer elegant interior wood accents.
One particularly attractive aspect of this building relates to its location. Residents discover public transportation nearby. A bus stop lies just two blocks east of this location along Spruce Street. Additionally, online sources have rated this surrounding Addison-Orange neighborhood as one of easiest to tour by foot in Chelsea.
Grocery stores, restaurants, and a variety of services stand within a two mile radius of this site. With online highway access ramps just a few blocks west, residents can readily access attractions within the Greater Boston Metropolitan Area from the Orion II condominiums. Chelsea High School stands within 0.4 miles of this location, and Clark Avenue School (serving grades 5 through 8) lies even closer, barely 0.2 miles away. Residents must travel slightly further to reach public elementary schools, but do not need to journey further than a mile away.
