0 Page Terrace, Dorchester has been listed in the MLS today. A single family property may be built on 0 Page Terrace with City of Boston approval. Page Terrace is a 3,150 square foot lot with 48.9′ linear feet of frontage located along the northwest side of Page Terrace, a paper street. The City of Boston may require Page Terrace to be fully developed, at the buyer’s expense, as a condition of 0 Page Terrace’s approval. 0 Page Terrace is located in the Mattapan Neighborhood District’s 3F-5000 Subdistrict.
There are two additional lots located along the northwest side of Page Terrace totaling an additional 5,153 square feet with an additional 128.9′ linear feet of frontage along the northwest side of Page Terrace and an additional 40′ linear feet of frontage along the southwest side of Page Street that may be included in the sale of 0 Page Terrace. If those two additional lots are included in the sale then the amalgamation would total 8,303 square feet with 177.8′ linear feet of frontage along the northwest side of Page Terrace and 40′ linear feet of frontage along the southwest side of Page Street.
The 3,200 square foot lot with 80′ linear feet of frontage located along the northwest side of Page Terrace and 40′ linear feet of frontage located along the southwest side of Page Street, known as 14 Page Street, is encumbered by a Department of Neighborhood (DND) deed restriction that impedes the ability of any home(s) to be built on that lot of land “…whether permanent or temporary in nature except a tool/gardening shed, garage and or fencing…“; that deed restriction would need to be lifted in order for any home(s) to be built on that lot.
Stuart Schrier of Schrier & Associates, P.C., an attorney at a law firm located at 1005 Dorchester Avenue, Dorchester, believes that there’s a possibility of lifting the deed restriction but there are requirements that would need to be met in order for that deed restriction to be lifted. Schrier & Associates, P.C.’s phone number is (617) 436-1200.
If the Department of Neighborhood Development deed restriction can’t be lifted on 14 Page Street than any home(s) would have to be built between 0 Page Terrace and the “middle lot” which would total 5,103 square feet with 97.8′ linear feet of frontage located along the northwest side of Page Terrace. 14 Page Street, however, may be able to be included in any floor-to-area ratio calculations or used to satisfy any front, side or rear setback requirements for the amalgamation of three lots.
There are four additional lots located along the southeast side of Page Terrace that are currently undeveloped but I’ve spoken with the owner of those four additional lots in the past and he was unwilling, at the time of our conversation, to enter into any serious discussions concerning a partnership agreement or a sales agreement.
The seller of 0 Page Terrace will wait for the buyer to obtain City of Boston approvals.
