Charming furnished studio apartment in Cambridge, near Harvard Square

This is a large (650 square feet) tastefully furnished, open plan studio apartment on the third floor of a two family home in the heart of Cambridge. The unit is bright and sunny with many windows and two skylights. There is a large bathroom with a shower. The kitchenette comes with a microwave, convection oven, refrigerator, and a two-burner stove top. Linens, dishes and cooking equipment will be provided. The sleeping alcove comes with a queen bed.

There are two closets (one is a large cedar lined closet) plus ample under-eave storage areas.

Heat, hot water, and electricity are all included in the $1900/month rent. There is a washer/dryer in the basement laundry area for the sole use of the tenants. There is also a large deck in the back of the house which we can share.

Our home is within walking distance of Harvard University and about 1 mile to MIT. Very convenient to public transportation.

We live and work in our home (we are both psychologists and consultants) and we are retired faculty of Harvard Medical School. We do have a dog, a sweet Labrador Retriever named Rosie.

Addendum: We plan on having the apartment open by February 1st but because of the Covid-19 pandemic, it is possible that our tenant (a Harvard student) will have to remain in the space until she graduates in May 2021. We will know more as we get closer to November.

About Me
My husband and I are both psychologists who met in graduate school and married 39 years ago. We are now semi-retired but we both served on the faculty of Harvard Medical School where we taught and supervised residents in psychiatry at Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston, MA. for many years. We live in Cambridge, a few blocks from Harvard yard and love being in a vibrant college town.

We arrived in Boston from Chile in August 2013 with my wife Carolina (Pediatric Neurologist) for a two year Masters programme that I made. We found this apartment through a UMass Professor (and friend) who recommended the website. This apartment was certainly the best place to live for our two year-stay in this lovely city. The neighborhood is wonderful, in the middle of Cambridge, close to metro station (Harvard and Central Square), plenty of bus routes nearby and the best university atmosphere, cultural events and food scene in Boston. The apartment is spacious and comfortable and ideal for study. It has a nice view to the street and Boston highline. We used the deck many times to meet and celebrate spring and summer time. Pamela and Bob were always very nice and caring, and made sure we had all the necessary help to live comfortably and enjoy our stay in Boston. They are great people and we hope to have them soon in Chile! Excellent LeoM 3/7/2017 6:46:00 AM
