Colonial Village sign surrounded by flowers and treesThe Colonial Village Condos in Arlington MA are some of the least expensive condominiums in Arlington Massachusetts and excellent opportunities for first time real estate buyers.

Built in 1962, Colonial Village is on Colonial Village Drive off Lowell Street.  The complex consists of 144  condos in a dozen three-story 12-unit brick buildings (it's a gross of condos!).

In the center of the complex is an outdoor pool.  There is outdoor parking for residents but there is no guest parking.  Most units come with one or two parking spaces.

In each building there are four apartments per floor.  The first floor units are partially below grade. Smaller one-bedroom condos are approximately 420 - 440 sq. ft. Larger condos, configured as one or two-bedrooms, are in the 640 - 665 sq. ft. range.  All the condos have one bath. Many have hardwood floors.

Many of the units have been renovated over the years. Others can be found in original condition with retro charm.

Current condo fees are approximately $250 to $350 per month and include heat and hot water.

Liz, great hyper local post, and wow, 100K? Way to go! I love what you are doing.

Now here is the kicker. I am way behind in reading all my subscribed blogs, I opened this one up, and smacked me right between the eyes. My family lived there when I was born! I went on a map and checked it out, I am positive of that. Wowee... way cool!

You are doing a fantastic job Liz! Way to go!

Thanks Matt! Happened in a flash it seems.

Hi Andrea ~ That is too cool!  What an amazing coincidence.  Falling behind... how could that be?! I was boggled when I read about your leadership roles you're juggling too - yowza!

Liz - this is a wonderful overview of these condos. I remember showing them multiple time, and selling one as well to a fellow from India. I was amazed, at the time, at the prices. Sounds like that hasn't changed.

Hi Jeff ~ They're a nice option for sure. I really like the "vintage" (ha!! that's like the first time I found my childhood toys in an "antique" shop) touches in some of them.

Liz, a walk down memory lane, after we moved to Winchester my mother still insisted on doing our grocery shopping at a little grocery store around the corner. The owners were Vi and Nish, and we went all the time. They were such nice people. The name of the store is on the tip of my tongue, it will probably come to me in the middle of the night. If it does, I am CALLING you, LOL.

Hi Sandy ~ It's not a common price point around here so the location and amenities make for a very nice value.

Too funny Andrea!  And isn't that the way - it seems to jostle around in your sub-conscious - sometimes it's a week later - and aha! I remember whatever it was.  I have always stuck with local businesses etc long after I've moved - I'm usually one state behind.  To this day I drive to NH to the hairdresser.
