What I Like about the Village at Crown Colony One of the best condominium complexes in Quincy, Massachusetts in my humble opinion is The Village at Crown Colony. The property is located on Village Drive in Quincy which is in the back of the Crown Colony Office Complex. It is really close to the Quincy Adams T Station. The Village at Crown Colony is designed to look like a quaint New England Village. All of the homes are essentially townhouse style condominiums. There are 100 units in the complex. The complex is complete. The units were built in the late 1990's. They are all really well kept. On site, there is a common clubhouse which can be rented out for parties and functions. In the lower level of the clubhouse, there is a small gym where you can work up a good sweat without having to...

Courtesy of Michael C. Mahoney | |Realtor from Milton, Mass | The NorthCompass Group | Guiding You Home www.NorthCompass.com I am just about to go over and meet a person at a condo complex who owns a condo which has been put on the market twice before by two separate agents in the last 200 days. I had a very nice discussion with her about the condo she owns in Quincy. It turns out that the family has owned the condo for a very long time. However, in preparing her condo for the sale, the owner had recently painted the entire inside, had fresh carpet installed, and bought new stainless steel appliances for the kitchen. I thought her description of the condo over the phone was absolutely terrific. I then did a little research on the condo in the MLS system. I wanted to see how the propert...
