This Tudor-style home at 9915 S Bell Ave in Beverly sold in July for $212,000, with the understanding that it needed some TLC. It originally was built as a duplex, but could make a good single-family with the right repairs, according to its old listing.
Judging by the home’s new listing, that’s exactly what its owner has done over the past four months. The home, now priced at $449,000, is loaded with all sorts of bells and whistles — new plumbing, electrical systems, HVAC, windows, and decks, a kitchen decked out with granite countertops, maple cabinets, and stainless steel appliances (an attached office has maple and granite finishes, too), two fireplaces, master suites on the first and second floors, and a first-floor laundry room with new appliances.
The home is on a 60′ x 130′ lot, and has a fenced yard and a detached two-car garage accessible from a side driveway. 2008 taxes were $3,674.
Four other Beverly homes that sold in 2010 are back on the market, at anywhere from $57,000 to $239,900 more than their last sale prices.
