Pricing Ranges from $649,000 to $825,000
Four of the units were built in 1988 and need various updates. In some cases, kitchens have been upgraded, baths done over, or in the case of #12 at 222 Sandpiper Lane, the owners have done major work and in the process shown how beautifully these townhouses can be updated to reflect today’s design and living needs. It is the most expensive one available at $825,000.
But opportunities are available at lower prices. The least expensive condo is at 122 Cove Road #11 for $649,000. Investing $175,000 in new baths and kitchen would bring it up to the same price as 222 Sandpiper Lane. The choice is yours–update it to your own taste, or simply go with the work already done.
See below for the five townhomes available, along with links to the complete listing sheets with more information and photos. Buy now and you can help set the tone for the community for the next generation.
