Sunny Spacious Home In Ideal Mid-Cambridge Location

I'm very happy to welcome academic visitors to my cheerful and tranquil Cambridge apartment while I'm living abroad. This elegant, light-filled 2 bed/1.5 bath condo has an open floor plan and warm personality with classic Cambridge style and quality amenities. It occupies the second floor of a triple-decker house on a quiet, tree lined street in a beautiful mid-Cambridge neighborhood.

The apartment has shiny hardwood floors, rugs, bay windows and classic woodwork throughout; recently renovated kitchen and bathrooms; tasteful furnishings and décor with character.
An expansive living room opens onto dining room and kitchen with peninsula, stainless steel appliances, and built-in cabinetry. Lots of natural light throughout. The large main bedroom has views overlooking yard and trees. Study/second bedroom is ideal for daily work and occasional guests. A fold-out futon couch in the living room can also accommodate visitors, and half bath is useful with guests.

A common first-floor entrance leads up a set of stairs to landing with private entrance to the unit. Front yard is landscaped with abundant flowers in growing season, and rhe large back yard is framed by towering pines, which provide privacy from neighbors. An outdoor dining table, grill, fruit trees, lawn chairs, and garden are shared with very nice upstairs neighbors. The washer and dryer units, dedicated for the unit only (neighbors have their own) is in the basement. Basement storage available. Upstairs neighbors and nice community on the street/neighborhood are helpful, kind, and quiet.

You're just a 5-10 walk to Harvard, Central and Kendall Squares, a 1-min walk to Inman Square’s terrific restaurants and shops, close to public transit, and minutes from Harvard and MIT. Ten minute walk to the Charles River for running, cycling, walking, or picnics! In the heart of Cambridge with easy access to Boston, this location is deal for walkers (WalkScore 89), bikers (BikeScore 91), and visiting scholars.

Available July 1, 2018 for a 1-year lease, with option to renew.

Please note that this apartment is suitable for 1 or 2 adults only, or parents with very young infants; I cannot accept families with toddlers or school-age children on this lease. The second bedroom functions as a guest room and study, not as a permanent bedroom. Thank you for understanding!
