Neighborhood Spotlight, New Listings Dec 2019

Historic home lovers can get their kicks this Sunday, December 15th, when four beautiful Compton Heights homes will be hosting open houses from 1-3pm. Each home is for sale, ranging in list price from $315,000 – $675,000.

Compton Heights is about 250 acres in the center of the city and located just east of Grand Avenue and a block south of Reservoir Park. It is one of the earliest planned residential developments of the American 19th century and the entire neighborhood is a local historic district.  It is valued for its proximity to so many great parks, restaurants, amenities, and access to downtown – not to mention its many stunning homes. The Compton Heights Neighborhood Association website is a great resource for neighborhood history buffs.

A map and additional contact information is at the bottom of this post. We hope to see you this Sunday.
