Sunny, Furnished Studio w/ Magnificent Treetop View near Harvard Square

Newly renovated, modern, furnished studio apartment just outside Harvard Square in a well managed condo association building at 29 Concord Avenue. You can enjoy cooking in a fully stocked modern kitchen.

The building was designed by famed architect, Hugh Stubbins, Jr. in 1965. This sun-filled, treetop studio is on the 5th floor with a private balcony and a magnificent view. Building amenities include an 8-story atrium, an elevator, private storage, and common laundry. A 10 minute walk to the Harvard Square red line MBTA & LMA shuttle to Harvard Medical School, surrounded by Harvard University, and a very short distance to the Longy School of Music, and the Cambridge Common. The location is rated as "Very Walkable," a "Biker's Paradise," and "Excellent Transit" by walkscore.com. There is plenty of on street parking with a Cambridge resident sticker which means your car must be registered in Cambridge.

This studio apartment has just been remodeled into a modern, sun-filled, apartment with constant comfort / whisper quiet Mitsubishi mini split air conditioning and all new furniture and kitchen appliances, including a Wolf induction cooktop, a Whirlpool built-in oven, a Liebherr refrigerator, a whisper silent Bosch dishwasher, and a microwave. The furniture includes an Eames designed coffee table, Hans Wegner designed chairs, a beautifully grained acacia wood dining table. a deliciously comfortable white leather sofa, and a custom built Murphy Bed with Sealy's premium top of the line queen sized mattress that disappears with ease into a custom made cherry wall cabinet. The bathroom is enveloped in beautiful floor to ceiling tile. The balcony window is graced with Hunter Douglas soft drapery like vertical blinds. It gets its electricity through a 100% Green Renewable Energy program and all lights are LEDs.

The studio remodeling effort was designed in collaboration with a local Harvard Square architect specializing in turning small, city dwellings into efficient, spacious and elegant living environments. An award-winning lighting designer designed the all LED lighting and a local woodworker built the murphy bed and storage cabinets.

About Me
My name is Carolyn and my husband, Bill, and I will greet you and give you the keys to the apartment or the studio (or our home if you are renting our guest room) when you arrive. Starting in 2010, we spent 3 years working with an architect, lighting designer, contractor and landscape designer to re-envision our home and to create an apartment on our first floor. Our home, our apartment and the garden have turned out to be delightful retreats in the middle of a bustling city environment. In April of 2015, we purchased the studio condo near Harvard Square. Over the next several months, we worked with the same architect, lighting designer and contractor to create a truly beautiful space near Harvard Square. One of the many joys of living in Central Square is that we walked to M.I.T. where we both worked in the IT department for many, many years. We retired in early 2018.

Wonderful studio very well equipped and furnished. The location is amazing as well the owner Carolyn. I highly recommend this place! Excellent Elena D'Onghia 12/10/2018 5:24:00 PM
This is a dream of a sabbatical set-up. First, the location is tremendous. A seven minute walk from Harvard Square, a seven minute-walk from Mass Ave west of the Square and a seven minute walk from Hi-Rise Bakery on Concord. Second, the unit is idyllic. Designed in the tiny-house tradition, modern design, with ample storage in gorgeous cabinetry, tricked out appliances (convection oven, induction stove top, great knives and cookwear), a tree-house view, laundry the easiest one can imagine. Finally, the best landlords ever--totally responsive, as interested as you are in prioritizing your comfort and convenience. We picked out a rug together, discussed my full-length mirror needs, and talked politics, all in one visit. The price can't be beat for all of the above. Parking available, close to public transport, and a really friendly but not intrusive building. I recommend most highly and without reservation!! All upside, no down.
