What You Can Get from a $350K Garage Parking Space in Charles Street
Charles Street Garage has been considered one of the choicer garage spaces for neighborhoods of West End and Beacon Hill. Because it has been transformed into a parking condominium, it is definitely one of a kind. The same conversion was performed on parking spaces at Brimmer Street back in 1979.
The garage spaces in Charles Street are very limited, and now, one unit is up for sale. When purchased, the buyer will have deeded rights to the parking space. The rights are described in detail and are regulated through the documents for the condominium. Those who are interested in purchasing the garage space must be a resident of West End and Beacon Hill.
If you are the lucky buyer of the garage space, you can take pleasure in one of the region’s best amenities. The garage will maintain its full services and will still be professionally managed. It will remain a valet parking garage and will continue operating every day for 24 hours. Aside from these mentioned features, there are enhanced services that will make the owner proud to call the parking space as the home of their vehicle. These services now include:
- Texting ahead of time to have the vehicle brought out upon request
- Maintenance and car detailing
- Drivers’ lounge
It is worth-mentioning that the lounge for drivers has always been there. However, it has been redesigned to further accommodate the requests of the vehicle owners for their relaxation and peace of mind.
It is a Big Opportunity
As pricy as $350,000 may sound for a garage space, it is actually a great offer. Beacon Hill neighborhood has always been the place for one of, if not the most expensive parking spaces in all of Boston. In fact, just in 2015, there was an announcement that a garage was put up for sale for a whopping $650,000. The price tag was so high that it was more than the cost of the Millennium Tower penthouse for every square foot.
Originally, parking spaces with single-deeds were sold for just $7,500. However, the values have increased, and since the year 2000, there has been a 97% hike in the average sale price. It is quite common for people who own a townhouse in Brimmer Street and nearby places in Beacon Hill like Charles Street to drop at least $350,000 for a parking space.
