Villa Cordoba condominiums are two-bedroom homes that have one bathroom. They are spacious, with each unit having 1200 square feet of space. They also are priced to be affordable at $263,000 to $275,000. Located in a building that was built in 1976, these homes are now highly prized in this city. The ample space, as well as the plentiful amenities inside each unit, help them sell well and remain occupied.
One of the biggest rooms in one of these homes is the living room. With its wall-to-wall carpeting, it is large enough to include a full set of furniture, as well as other furnishings like a china hutch or set of bookshelves. It has a large picture window that is more than seven feet wide. This window lets in ample sunlight and overlooks the condo property. The kitchen and dining room are next to the living room. The dining room is carpeted while the kitchen has tile flooring. The kitchen also has a breakfast nook space in it in which to place a small table and two chairs.
The two bedrooms also have carpeting and come with their own large windows for natural lighting. They also have deep walk-in closets for extra storage. The bathroom has tile flooring, as well as a large tub and shower. The building has an on-site shared laundry for residents' use. Residents also are entitled to deeded on-site parking.

Affordability is clearly what sets this condominium apart from many of the condominiums in surrounding towns. When it comes to monthly mortgage, tenants can expect to pay about $927 per month for a single bedroom unit and less than $1,500 per month for a dual-bedroom unit, which is certainly very reasonable, especially considering that the community is located in one of the Boston suburbs that are always in demand. This places the total property cost for each unit to be between $220,000 and $300,000 for the varying spacious units that are available at this condominium.
Of course, like just about any condo or townhouse, an owner can expect to pay a homeowner's association fee; typically, this is over $400 per month, but it includes hot water, heat, gas, and maintenance, which includes snow removal, property landscaping, and repairs. This development is steadily being kept in good shape; in fact, it was just in 2013 that the property underwent a roof upgrade.
The community has a parking lot for the use of the owners and their guests, and there is also extra storage space available for owners in a dedicated on-premise storage facility. As mentioned, the community has both one- and two-bedroom units for sale, and many of the condos that are available are equipped with some nice amenities like balconies and patios. Each unit is carpeted and the spaces are heated via baseboard heaters. Each condo also has an air conditioner situated in the wall, and there is more than ample storage space in the numerous closets situated throughout each condo unit.
Kitchen areas are spacious and well-equipped; each comes with a large refrigerator, a stove/oven combo, and some units even come equipped with a dishwasher. Kitchen floors can be either be coated in tile or hardwood, and most units also have an adjoining dining area space for family dinners. The bed and living rooms are also very spacious so that residents will have plenty of room for their pursuits; some home even come equipped with walk-in closets.
When it comes to convenience, as mentioned, the town is in fairly close proximity to Boston, and there are several highway options in the surrounding area that makes commuting very easy.

Both Interstates 95 and 93 are in relatively close proximity, which means that traveling around and outside of the state is very easy.
For those without an automobile or those that want to travel more eco-friendly, the area also has its share of mass transit options as well. The trip via train is scarcely longer than by car; it only takes about 26 minutes to commute by the Orange Line to Boston's North Station from Melrose Highlands.
This area of town also has its share of retailers, a few medical centers, and more than one place of worship. The condo is near a Whole Foods, and there's plenty of shopping opportunities on Route 1.
