2 Hardy Street
Located just off Beverly's newly updated Rantoul Street, 2 Hardy Street is simple in nature but big on energy efficiency. This affordable family housing project by Harborlight Community Partners offers 6 two-bedroom units, each with front-to-back layouts across the building and spacious floor plans. What happens behind the walls and ceilings is where the efficiency comes to play, exceeding building insulation code requirements and utilizing high efficiency mechanical systems with fresh air intakes. The triple glazed windows are a perfect choice.
A close walk to the train station, restaurants, and the post office, the residents have virtually everything they need within walking distance. Keeping with the aesthetic of the adjacent residential community, the building exterior includes clapboard siding with shingle accents and a mansard roof to top it off. It’s as though it's been there all along.
