You’ll often encounter the term “Blietz-built” in listings for North Shore homes and condos. It’s shorthand for a high level of quality and thoughtfulness in design and siting, and award-winning landscaping.
The Blietz-built (early 90s-era) Courts of Regent Wood in Northfield is one of the most lavishly landscaped environments on the North Shore.
The development is a mix of large townhomes, condominiums and single-family homes set around a series of ponds and fountains. It has, over time, become a destination for people who’ve sold larger single-family homes and want to remain in the area in a maintenance-free community.
The buyers of this home owned a beautiful home on several acres in Northfield, with an indoor swimming pool pavilion and a tennis court.
Prior to moving to their new home at the Courts of Regent Wood, they had it beautifully updated by Benvenuti and Stein. Then they decided they didn’t want to give up the pool and tennis court at their existing home, and put this home on the market at an asking price of $1,049,000 just a year after purchasing it for $1M.
