Beautiful, spacious apartment available from mid-January 2020

We want to rent our spacious fully-furnished apartment (the ground floor of a two-family house) from mid January to August 30, 2020. Exact start and end dates negotiable, but minimum rental should cover (approximately) the winter-spring and/or summer 2020 terms. The apartment is 1350 square feet, with a large master bedroom, modern ensuite bathroom, second bedroom that we use as a study, sun room that we use as a second study, living room (with working fireplace), dining room, sunny breakfast nook, a second bathroom, and fully modernized gourmet kitchen. Washer/dryer in basement. Wireless internet and cable TV. Central air. Tandem parking in adjacent driveway. Ideal for a professional couple since there are two separate work spaces.

We are on Huron Avenue across from Fresh Pond Reservoir, the main open space in Cambridge, much used by walkers, joggers, and cyclists. The apartment is 1.5 miles from Harvard Square, a pleasant 30 minute walk or a brief ride on public transportation, which is nearby.

We are looking for responsible, cat-loving tenants who will water our plants and care for our beautiful, very friendly, indoor cat during approximately the first three months of the rental. (We will have him with us for the rest of the time.) Rent includes heat, all utilities, and other fees as well as cleaning.

This is a nice large apartment in an excellent location at a reasonable price for Cambridge. When we had problems the owners were quick to fix them. There's a large lake across the street, soccer fields and playground a few blocks away, supermarket within walking distance, etc. Definitely a good find. Excellent Ravi 9/3/2017 6:46:00 PM
