Spacious, quiet 2+BR 1.5BA furnished West Cambridge condo. Yard, parking, WD, internet, cable TV

Located on a quiet street in sought-after West Cambridge, the condo is on the first floor of a well maintained two family owner-occupied late 1800s Cambridge home. Hardwood floors throughout; large eat-in updated kitchen with modern gas stove, new dishwasher and granite countertops; spacious and open living and dining rooms with bay windows and period details; a walk-in pantry/laundry room with new washer & dryer; a full bath; and a large mudroom/three seasons porch off of the kitchen. On the lower level accessible by interior stairs from the kitchen there is a large finished basement space and a half bath. Enjoy this versatile extra space as a family room, to welcome visitors, or use it as an office, rec room, or an extra bedroom - lots of possibilities! There is landscaped side yard with garden furniture for your exclusive recreational use, one off-street parking spot, plus easy and permit-free street parking. Condo is fully furnished to comfortably accommodate 4-5 people (queen bed in BR1, double trundle bed in BR2, 2 persons sleeper couch on the lower level, crib and high chair also available). Dishes, pots/pans, kitchen appliances, linens, towels etc are all provided so you will have all you need for a comfortable stay. No owners' clutter to deal with, lots of space throughout. Private back entrance from the side yard and window AC units for the bedrooms in the summer.

Fantastic location and neighborhood! Harvard is within quick and easy reach (4 direct buses to Harvard square stop within a block/few minutes walk, bus ride is under 10 minutes); alternatively you can pedal to Harvard on a bike path which is one block from the house, or even stroll in nice weather – Harvard sq is just under 2 miles away, a 30 min walk). From there you can take the red line T to MIT and anywhere in Boston, including other Boston-area universities, or buses to local towns such as Somerville, Medford (Tufts U), Arlington, Brighton, Brookline, etc. Shuttle bus to Bentley goes down a street one block from the house. The house is just steps to Fresh Pond reservation, an urban oasis for walking, jogging, and biking. Within several minutes walk is acclaimed Sofra café, a large supermarket with pharmacy, a library, several playgrounds, and more. A 10 min walk in one direction takes you to a quaint Huron village with shops, restaurants, and other local businesses, and in another direction a variety of local ethnic and American restaurants in Watertown and Belmont. Escape the congestion of Harvard square and enjoy more space indoors and out without giving up proximity and easy access to Harvard.

About Me
I am a faculty member at a local university and have been in Cambridge for nearly 20 years, first as a graduate student and now as a local resident. We list two rentals on Sabbaticalhomes, both in the same house - a downstairs 2+BR condo that we rent on a semester and longer-term basis, and our upstairs two level condo we occasionally rent when we are away.
