On The Market: Temple Place at Lower Mills

Fresh on the market are 9 beautiful single-family townhouses in the popular Lower Mills section of Dorchester!  Located walking distance between two Red Line T stops and the Neponset River Walkway, Temple Place is close to everything you need from the supermarket to yoga to some of the best new restaurants in the neighborhood like the Yellow Door, Ester, and the Sweet Life Bakery!

The details:
These units are spacious, modern and feature three bedrooms, two and a half bathrooms and comes equipped with stainless steel appliances, as well as large capacity, front load Energy Star washer and dryers, a Stormwash Energy Star dishwasher, and blanco quartz countertops.  The stoves are 5 gas burner/griddle convection and a large capacity over, along with a range microwave with 300 CFM venting systems and LED displays.  The kitchen tiles are matte grey subway tiles. The master bath tiles are made in Italy – “Italia” tiles.  Unlike natural tiles, “Italia”  tiles resist stains and etching updating, and are an extremely durable tile with an organic aesthetic.

The floors in the units either have a white oak with a natural finish or a  white oak stained in classic grey finish. Both modern and clean!

Each unit includes one-car garage parking (forget shoveling this winter) and a separate off-street parking space.  Another bonus? Each unit has a beautiful to deck to enjoy!

The history on Lower Mills:
This section of Dorchester was the epicenter of the chocolate-making world in 1765.  (If the wind is just right, you can still smell the sweet scent of chocolate!) Doctor James Baker and John Hannon ground cocoa beans in a sawmill on the banks of the Neponset River to make the first American-made bricks of chocolate. According to the Dorchester Reporter, the mill produced almost 900 lbs of chocolate in 1773. The Walter Baker & Company factory is a quick walk from Temple Place.

Open houses this weekend, Saturday, Sunday, and Monday, 11am-1pm
