The intersection where Roxborough Avenue hits Ridge Avenue has seen some big changes in the last few years. You may remember, back in 2012, developers demolished the Bunting House, a building constructed in the French-inspired Second Empire style that happened to not be designated as historic. Neighbors were miffed, to put it mildly, that a generic Wendy's was planned in its place. By early 2014, the ZBA approved the Wendy's despite neighbor objections, though they didn't allow a drive-thru as part of the plan. Passing by today, we see that neighbors can now buy a Frosty here, whether they like it or not.
Across the street on Roxborough Avenue, four new homes are under construction and like the Wendy's, they don't quite fit in with the surrounding neighborhood. There was an old home at 523-29 Roxborough Ave. until fairly recently, but that building is gone.
The developers have called this project Ridge Park, and the homes are drawing some pretty good attention from buyers. From what we can tell, two of the homes are under agreement at list prices of $625K and $655K, with another now listed at $675K. The homes are really large, each offering 4 bedrooms, 3.5 bathrooms, and 2-car parking. Always wanted a shower that's eight feet long by four feet deep? Would you love a large rear yard along with parking? Do you want to be able to walk a very short distance to get your hands on a Baconator? This could be your chance!
