During its long history, the red brick building at 5962 North East Circle had had several incarnations, first as a post office and then as an apartment house. Now Michael Fazio, a real-estate agent for Sergio & Banks, has reinvented the building as Old Norwood on the Circle—though it took a little work.

When Fazio took over the building, its exterior was in good shape. He put on a new roof, but the inside, he says, was worn out. "We took it down to its shell and started over," Fazio says—though his crew did refinish the interior with crown and picture frame moldings, as well as other details, that suited the older character of the building.

At presstime, three of the building’s ten units had been sold. The remaining units, all of them ready for move-ins, were priced from $269,900 for a 700-square-foot one-bedroom condo on the second floor to $349,900 for a two-bedroom duplex with 1,700 square feet of space. Parking, all outdoors, costs an additional $10,000.
