About Me
I have recently retired from Harvard and for now live part of year on an island off the coast of Maine and part of the year in Jamaica. I have owned my condo for over 20 years, lived there while working at Harvard and served on the Condo board as Treasurer for the Peabody Court Condo Association. I check on the condition of the unit on a regular basis and have work done in between renters. The furnishings are the same as when I lived there and include some elegant family antiques giving the space a genuine "home" atmosphere well beyond the usual rental unit furnishings.
