Looking down the quaint, quiet streets of Bay Village today, you might be surprised to know that the small neighborhood was once filled with speakeasies, movie distribution centers, and movie theater equipment companies. After housing demand increased in the Boston area, many of these commercial buildings were rezoned for residential space.

Take 38 Melrose St.: It’s a two-bedroom, 2.5-bathroom, 1,568-square-foot townhouse listed for $1,565,000 and located in the former Paramount News Building. The home is open concept and features stainless steel appliances, a private deck, and a bonus entertainment room.

There’s an open house on Sunday, October 30 from noon to 2 p.m.
