Fully furnished, 1-Bedroom modern, private duplex - close to T and walk to hospitals / universities.

Renovated in July 2013 and updated again in 2017, our apartment is a two level, one bedroom unit with a private entrance. It has a fully stocked kitchen, dinning room, living room, bedroom with walk-in closet, and a full bath. There is a queen-size bed in the bedroom and a pull-out sofa in the living room. The closet in the bedroom is large and empty with carpeting and could easily be a slumber space for young kids or perfect for a Pack 'n Play. The unit has wifi, cable TV, new central air conditioning, and new washer/dryer. It is fully stocked and organized for long term stays. We have designed it to be something we would like to rent when we travel. We wash every item that has been available to the previous tenant: all blankets, duvet cover, towels, bathroom rugs, sheets, etc. There is no smoking allowed.

On the outside it is a red brick with a small fenced garden and a boxed vegetable garden along the side. The unit's entrance is around the back with an electronic keypad on the door, so you can come and go as you please. Depending on the dates, we may also have a parking space available. The nightly rate for parking is $10.00. Please let us know if you will need a parking spot. If not, there are ZipCars very close by and several HubWay Centers (city bike rental) close by.

Location, location, location!

The apartment is on a four-acre secluded park, surrounded by willow trees with a walking path around. There are play spaces for the kids and quiet spaces for the adults. It is one of the reasons we live here.

It is located in the heart of Brookline, under one mile from the Boston border. The three town centers are each a 10 minute walk: Coolidge Corner, Brookline Village, & Washington Square. It is a 5 minute walk to the subway to Boston, Cambridge, and is a 10 minute ride to Boston (Green Line for the MBTA) and on the bus route to the Medical Area.

In Brookline you will find every nationality restaurant in these centers. There are dozens of places to get sushi, Indian, Mexican, Thai, Japanese, Two Kosher Middle-Eastern, Noodle Bars, Lebanese, Italian, Sports Bars with a full menu, French Crepes, Vietnamese, Kosher and non Kosher Chinese. Upscale traditional American (The Fireplace), Spanish Tapas, two Russian restaurants, and a new vegetarian take-out called Clover Food Lab in Brookline Village. Almost every restaurant will deliver.

The oldest, continuously run independent movie house is in Coolidge Corner. It shows amazing films that you won’t see anywhere else and it is right across from Brookline Booksmith, a fantastic independently-owned bookstore.

There are also lots of museums in the area and historical sites to visit. All are on one of the public transportation lines:

There are many more, but these are the big ones:
•The Museum of Fine Arts
•Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum
•Boston Science Museum
•Harvard Museum of Natural History and Art Museums
•MIT Museum
•Institute of Contemporary Art
•Quincy Market
•Fenway Park

About Me
We are a family who loves to travel and have the privileged to do so around our teaching schedule. We have a 4+ bed / 2.5 bed home that we have rented to families and visiting professors for many years when our travels take us out of the state or country for the summer. The house is steps from a secluded-four acre family-oriented park, that is in the center of town, under a 10-minute walk from all town-centers. Public transportation is a five-minute walk from the house and it takes approximately 10 minutes to get to Cambridge or Boston by train -- one mile to both Boston and Cambridge from the house. We also have a fully-furnished, just renovated one-bed duplex apartment attached to the house that we rent on short-term or long-term basis throughout the year.
