Sanford Mill Condos Medway MA 02053

Sanford Mill Condos Medway MA 02053

About Sanford Mill


I like to think of the Sanford Mill Condo in Medway as "a little bit of Beacon Hill meets down east Maine."   The old mill built in 1881 was converted to condominiums in 1989.   The developer kept the industrial charm and loft style look for the units highlighting the exposed brick, beams and long windows.    The mill sits on a picturesque falls of the Charles River.  

Not all the units are the same, some are garden style, some are 2 floors.   Even the old gate house was converted into a home.  

The complex consists of 69 units.   It is managed by a professional off site management company.   They are serviced with town water and sewer and have central air.  The condos are FHA approved.

What's Available?

As of today, April 21, 2015 there are only 2 units available.

Unit 11.  A town home style unit consisting of approximately 800 sq ft with 2 bedrooms and 1.5 baths for $182,500

Unit 2.   Another 2 story unit with a bit more square footage, 2 bedrooms and 1.5 baths for $199,900.  

                                                        What's Pending?   

There are currently 2 units pending sale.    

                                                        
Recent Solds


There are two units that have sold in the past 6 months.   Unit 17 sold for $177,500 and Unit 30 Sold for $220,000.

Excellent Location

Spring Massachusetts Style 2015

Spring Massachusetts Style 2015

How I know Spring is in the Massachusetts Air


Reminds me of a song.   Oh no, that is Love is in the air.   Well, I LOVE spring!    And spring for sure is in the air for the winter weary Massachusetts native.    


Yes, It's he'ah for sure.     Last weekend at a balmy 60 degrees, as I was showing homes (yes, in short sleeves) when I observed the very first signs.

No, it wasn't the buds on the trees or the crocus trying their hardest to poke through the ground, it was yes, I saw it with my own eyes, a couple of girls "laying out".  Their first attempt after a long winter of hibernation at getting "color"!   I have to say  regardless of the long winter, it  took me by complete surprise!  



We know spring is in full bloom when you see the human male parading around in shorts when it's less than 60 degrees, but laying out?   ( Is the term "laying out" used in other parts of the country I wonder?  For those of you that do not recognize that term, it means getting in the yard, putting down the beach towel and facing the sun usually with a bathing suit on to get "color")  

I remember years ago mentioning to my Mom that the trees were budding.    Her response.   "When you  start noticing that, it is a sign of growing old."    Thanks Mom.    As usual, Mom is right.   Bet those gals who were lying out didn't notice the buds this year!

My neighbor who winters in FL has asked me how her daffodils were doing.   At first I thought they weren't up yet but a closer look proved me wrong.   They are up and blooming.   But, I must say that they look a bit sad and pensive as they enter the spring air without the dramatic fan fare that  typically introduces spring.     Kind of like us people here in MA.    Do we dare believe that we are done with this winter?  

Regardless of the girls on the lawn and men in shorts,  the news media is not crying snow but rather highlighting the tick season.  Hallelujah! 

I pensively poke my head out to look at the yard.   April 17th.  Do you know, we still have a snow bank in the yard?   Well, actually it's not in the yard anymore.  Al shoveled it off, wanting to get the sand and salt off "his" grass.  A new twist to spring clean up for sure! 


Like the daffodils, we forge ahead and like the gals on the grass, I think we might be a bit aggressive at getting the lawn furniture out on the deck and placing tchotches strategically throughout the yard.

My wind chimes are out, likely already begun to annoy the neighbors.   
 But what they are really saying is HELLO spring!  


Bring on the black flies and the poison ivy!

Saying Good Bye To Old Man Winter

Saying Good Bye To Old Man Winter

Al and Cal Realty Group Spring 2015
The Mussi Boys Hurrying Spring Along

I don't know about you, but it's been the winter from hell for me!    On a personal note, it started out with news from the Doc that surgery was in order.    That went fine due to the very capable professionals at Tufts Medical Center in Boston and the great and friendly folks at Active Physical Therapy in Bellingham MA.  

On a professional note, it started with my client taking a trip to the ER after a long tumble down an entire flight of stairs while viewing a home.    Wet shoes, (thank you Mr. Snowman),  I am sure were the culprit.    It went downhill (and I don't mean skiing) from there, trudging through banks of snow showing "out of town-ers" listings, viewing homes with no heat and, believe it or not, actually finding a skating rink on the INSIDE of a what was I am sure a wonderful home.

While the weathermen were dancing and commanding the airways, the shut down of the T and the loss of business that local shops and restaurants have endured has been just too much this year.    

I'm ready for spring.     Don't get me wrong.   I love my new System 2000 (provided and installed by Palmieri Mechanical Services).   I appreciate the creature comforts that this warm system and my heated car seats bring.
But, I am ready for the humming of central air, the frizzing of my own hair, and the buzzing of small planes overhead.  And, yes believe to or not, I welcome the Boys of Summer.   I don't think I will complain this year when hearing the incredibly boring announcers or the distinct crack of a bat at each and every game that I am forced to listen to.  (Oh yea, Al is a fan.)  

To me, March says not just St Patty's day but, "GOOD BYE OLD MAN WINTER".    

Let the melting begin but let it go slow.      I am wondering if the waters at my favorite kayaking spot will reach the all time (in my kayaking lifetime) high of April 2010, when we could not pass under the bridge on 109 at the Millis/Medfield line.  I can't wait to get on that river.   As excited as I am for the snow melt and the high waters in the Charles River, please Mother Nature, give these Massachusetts homeowners a break by letting it happen slowly as not to terrorize their poor homes any longer.   

Good bye old man winter.  
I can't wait to be showing the exterior of a home, worried about mud vs. snow!  
 (please, don't remind me that I said this in April)
