Beautiful townhouse, 15-minute walk to Harvard and MIT

A beautiful, fully furnished 3-bedroom townhouse, on a quiet one-way street. A backyard, and a covered garage (which is a rare luxury in Cambridge). Central heating and AC.

15-minute walk to Harvard and MIT, 8-minute walk to the subway, and 1-minute walk to the bus system. Amenities abound: minutes from cafes, restaurants, and playgrounds. 5-minute walk to a nice supermarket (Wholefoods).

The newly constructed home is modern, full of light and character, with large open living spaces that work perfectly for entertaining.

The ground floor contains the main entrance, living area, guest bathroom and fully equipped kitchen with top-of-the-line appliances, most replaced only a year ago. The private yard is directly accessible from the living room and perfect for *al fresco* dining.

The top floor has a sunny master bedroom (with walk-in closet and en-suite master bathroom with oversized spa shower), a large, sunny second bedroom with Juliette balcony, an additional full bathroom (with full-size tub), and a newly purchased washer and dryer. A small office could be used as an extra bedroom for an infant or toddler.

The finished basement has a cozy third bedroom, ideal as guestroom or playroom, full bathroom, independent entrance and wine cellar.

The townhouse features a gas fireplace, hardwood floors, large windows, top-of-the-line appliances, and two TV screens. (Equipment for small children also available, e.g. crib, high chair, gates for stairs, toys.)

We're not running a rental business. We're just away for a year on sabbatical. So our place feels like a real home, with beautiful furniture and attention to detail.

About Me
I'm a professor of philosophy at MIT. My wife Carmen is a food-writer and pastry chef. We'll be spending the 2019-20 academic year in Bologna and are looking for someone to stay in our Cambridge home while we're away.
