You'll often encounter the term "Blietz-built" in listings for North Shore homes and condos. It's shorthand for a high level of quality and thoughtfulness in design and siting, and award-winning landscaping.
The Blietz-built (early 90s-era) Courts of Regent Wood in Northfield is one of the most lavishly landscaped developments on the North Shore.
The development is a mix of large townhomes, condominiums and single-family homes set around a series of ponds and fountains. It has, over time, become a destination for people who've sold larger single-family homes and want to remain in the area in a maintenance-free community.
The home has been beautifully updated by Benvenuti and Stein, and put back on the market at an asking price of $1,049,000 just a year after it was purchased for $1M and then renovated.
