Marlborough tyvek house

How many years has the house on Marlborough at Davis been under construction? It couldn’t be any less than five years. Seems like only two years ago or so the owners covered it in Tyvek, and it looked like something could be happening.

Now the ever-unfinished house is on the market. The Waller Group has the property listed for $399,000, according to the Multiple Listing Service. For that price, you get a nearly 5,000-square-foot, three-story home with four bedrooms, two bathrooms, “bright, open living spaces,” a game room, office and guest quarters.

Listing agent Rudy Cipriano of the Waller Group says the owner, listed in public records as Ricardo Torres, ran out of money before he could finish the years-long project. “The city’s been real hard on him,” Cipriano says, adding that there is an offer on the house, and they expect to close in the next few weeks.

Cipriano says the house is on the market for $375,000 and has four bedrooms and three and a half bathrooms.

To compare, $399,000 could also buy a brand-new house in Kings Highway, a bit of a fixer-upper in Kessler Park or this renovated cutie near Rosemont Elementary School.
