Charming furnished studio apartment near Harvard Square

A light-filled, semi-open-plan two-room studio (with separate small bedroom and bathroom) on the third floor of a Victorian building between Harvard and Porter Square. White walls, hardwood floors, charming vintage details. Shared access to backyard patio, a couple minutes walk down the street to the lovely Radcliffe quadrangle (great for picnics). Historic, quiet, leafy residential neighborhood, along with all necessary shops, cafes and restaurants within short walking distance. Half a minute's walk to major bus lines, ten minute walk to Red Line subway stops. Easy on-street parking, washer/dryer in the basement. I have lots of cute stuff and a great book collection! Two tenants lived here in the past, though I think it probably works best for a single person. I have a guest mattress I put in the kitchen for short visits.

I've lived here happily for 5 years and would like to continue to do so, but I have a one-year sabbatical at Stanford for the 2019-20 academic year. My landlord doesn't want me to sub-let the apartment, but is open to renting it out to someone (maybe you!) for a fixed-term one-year period, then returning it to me when I get back to Cambridge.

I would love to leave my furniture in the apartment, to avoid putting everything into storage. So I'm hoping to find someone here: 1) who is such a good prospective tenant that I could persuade my landlord to allow me to sub-let to them!, or 2) who would be willing to look after my furniture when they took their own independent lease for the apartment. The landlord is actually a super nice guy, and maybe we can make this work. Happy to chat on the phone about any of the details.
