Sunny 3 bed 2.5 bath +office near Harvard, MIT, and public transportation

This sunny and fully furnished home is perfect for a family visiting Harvard, MIT, BU, or a nearby school for the year. It is located on a quiet residential street only 3 min walk from Central Square (the heart of Cambridge!) and 20 min walk from Harvard or MIT.

This 1850s townhouse has a small front porch and backyard. The first floor is open-concept and includes a newly renovated and well-stocked kitchen, expandable dining table, half-bath with W/D, and a mudroom. The second floor has 2 bedrooms (1 queen bed, 1 toddler crib), an office, and a full bath with shower. The finished basement has 1 bedroom (1 queen bed), full bath with jacuzzi tub, kitchenette, second set of W/D, and private entrance -- perfect for older children or guests. The backyard includes a picnic table. Please note: The third floor/4th bedroom is currently in use for personal storage, so is unavailable.

The house is comfortable year-round thanks to central heating, air conditioning, ceiling fans, and several skylights.

Depending on the tenant’s needs: the lease can be modified to include our car (2018 RAV4); the children's bedroom can be set up for 1 or 2 small children (or converted to a bedroom with a queen mattress); and we can arrange for regular cleanings.

About Me
I am a physician researcher, and my husband is a data scientist. We have an infant and a toddler. We will be going to Australia for a year and are hoping to find a family to stay in our home while we are away. The house is well situated between Harvard and MIT, also close to BU, and conveniently located near public transportation, shops, parks, and entertainment. It is well-stocked with kitchen supplies, outdoor gear, books, and everything you might need for kids in the 0-2+ year old range.
