This is the former site of the Crompton's Potato Chip factory as can be seen on the ghost signage that was discovered on the façade of the building.ÂLocated just on the edge of Norris Square park, and a quick walk to the Berks Street subway stop, and all the restaurants opening up along Front St, this neighborhood is exploding with development all around. The current owner renovated the inside of the garage in 2016 and used reclaimed materials from a former factory in the neighborhood, the interior wood, windows, doors and siding as are all repurposed. The two story house that faces Hancock Street is a 1 bedroom, 1 full bath home with kitchen, and new windows. This would be perfect to use as a rental or Air Bnb.
