There’s an exciting new condo development just being completed, down in the Lower Mills section of Dorchester.

About the condos

Each home at The Schoolhouse was thoughtfully designed to maximize the comfort and efficiency of the space. The finishes complete the effort and showcase fine craftsmanship. With a variety of designs these one, one plus, and two bedroom homes offer you an opportunity to match your home to your lifestyle.

About the buildings

The Schoolhouse is comprised of two buildings. The existing historic school received an extensive historic preservation overseen in part by the Boston Landmarks Commission and provides several homes with unique living space.

The new building is adjacent to the original school and has been designed to complement many of the historic building’s features. The two buildings are linked together by a one story glass conservatory allowing for inter-building access and creating unity for The Schoolhouse development.

In the common areas are a media center, fitness center, bike storage, general storage and available garage parking.

They are having a Grand Opening this coming Sunday to show off their just-completed model unit. It is being held Sunday September, 9th 2007, from 12:00 – 3:45 pm at 36-40 River Street, Dorchester Lower Mills.

Ten units have been released with special pre-completion pricing ranging from $275,000 to $370,000.

These new homes have 1, 1+ and 2 bedrooms. The spacious layouts include hardwood floors throughout, stainless steel appliances, granite counters and washer/dryer in unit.

The units range in size from 766 square feet to 1,032 square feet and each unit comes with private storage and one deeded space of outdoor parking behind the building. The common areas feature a media center and lounge with a gas fireplace, fitness center and bike storage.
