Tasteful, furnished 1 bed condo in heart of Porter Square

My home is in a former residential hotel that has served students and professors since it was built in 1920. In an elevator building, my condo is 1 bed/1 bath. The unit has a large living room with a home office, a large couch, and a grand piano; a formal dining room; and a recently renovated kitchen (gas burners & stove, new appliances). Located on the NE corner, the unit gets lots of morning light and has windows on two sides of the unit. Looking out on Mass Ave from the living room, you can watch the action while in the back bedroom it is quiet. The Porter Square T stop is a three minute walk away (you can see it from the windows!). The Harvard campus is just half a mile away; Lesley University has its gallery and art studios across the street. Plenty of shopping and restaurants in the neighborhood, as well as area parks. Well-maintained laundry available in the basement (accessible by elevator); wash & fold laundry service available across the street. Biweekly cleaning service included with rental: vacuuming, dusting, linen changes (no laundry service). See pictures of unit in link below.

About Me
I am a licensed, independent, clinical social worker specializing in elder care in the Cambridge, MA area. I had a baby 6 months ago and with the pandemic, I have been limited in who can help with the baby for risk of infection. As a result, I've moved out of my lovely home and in with a friend who helps with the baby. I have a cat, and my unit will accept a cat or small dog. There is a grand piano (a Yamaha) in the living room, in good working order. My father is a pianist (I studied the cello) and when he moved a few years ago I was the lucky recipient of his piano. My travel has been relatively limited, but I've really enjoyed travel to Croatia, Bosnia, Russia, Greece, and Turkey. My dream is to go to Indonesia.
