Cambridge 3BR single family house near Harvard & MIT-available for summer 2020

Our cozy home is ideally located halfway between Harvard and MIT, close to both Inman and Central Squares. It’s a short walk to subway, buses, food stores, shops, cafes, pubs, restaurants and live entertainment; and a quick drive to downtown Boston and access to interstates 90 & 93. We’re one of the rare single-family homes on a quiet block of 19th century wooden houses, and right across the street from a dog and kid friendly park/playground.

The house is set back from the street in the middle of the block, affording a sense of quiet and privacy rare to the city. The shady backyard features a red brick and bluestone patio, with tables, chairs and charcoal grill for al fresco dining. The front porch opens to another brick patio and a sunny garden of vegetables and flowers, available for the picking. The house features hardwood floors, handmade rugs, photography and folk art, and original decorative tin ceilings on the first floor and hallways.

The ground floor includes a kitchen with modern appliances, a pantry, half bath, entryway and an open design dining room/living room with an antique upright piano and a wood stove.

Their are four rooms on the second floor: the master bedroom, which includes an enclosed sun porch/office area with a separate entrance opening to a small deck above the garden; a full bath (with old fashion claw foot tub), a second bedroom with full size futon, a TV/family room (that can also be used as an extra sleeping space with our air mattress). Up the stairs to the third floor is the third bedroom with a full size bed, a skylight and its own bath. Window AC units are available for all bedrooms.

There's a washer and dryer in the basement; the house has DSL wireless, a landline phone, and AppleTV with free access to Hulu+LiveTV and Netflix accounts. Kids and pets are more than welcome.
