Winthrop, MA- Newman Properties’ affiliate Dighton Gardens LLC has purchased a 38-unit, residential property at 87-90 Winthrop Shore Dr, Winthrop, MA.
This is the first residential property purchased in Winthrop, as they look to expand their portfolio North of Boston. The purchase price for the property was $6,000,000. Financing was provided by Hanscom Federal Credit Union. This acquisition was part of a 1031 tax exchange.
This asset is broken up into two neighboring buildings, with 19 units in each structure. A paved courtyard joins the two addresses to create the feeling of a singular complex. At 5.3 miles from downtown Boston, this asset features quick access to downtown and the airport, while providing beachfront living with spectacular views for the residents. The buildings consist of a total of 11-2 bedrooms, 5-1 bedrooms, and 23 studios.
Matthew Newman, Principal and CEO of Newman Properties, commented that after 15+ years of success in the East Boston market, the company is looking to expand into towns North of Boston and have started with Winthrop and Salem. There are colleges, hospitals, and quaint yet bustling downtown areas. He feels these oceanfront communities have tremendous appeal and value for people moving out of the immediate Boston neighborhoods.
Settled in 1630, Winthrop is one of the oldest communities in the country. It was named for John Winthrop; a governor of Massachusetts and John’s son Deane Winthrop’s home, built in 1637 is now an historic site and museum. On one side of Winthrop there is a panoramic view of the outer harbor and on the other a view of the Boston Skyline and the inner harbor. In between, we have the look of a quaint and friendly New England town with shops, parks, marinas, inns and miles of lovely beaches. An excellent public transportation system brings people to Winthrop from Boston in just 20-minutes and from the airport in five. Winthrop is also just a short boat ride away from many communities on both the North and South Shore.
