Sunny Loft in Central Cambridge Location

Location, location, location! This furnished, fully-equipped, beautiful studio-loft is in the heart of Central Square, a ten-minute walk to both Harvard and MIT. It’s a little under 500 sq. ft., with great finishing and Japanese storage design. It features a lofted bed with a queen size mattress and a full-size murphy bed in the living room with its own mattress and a thick memory foam topper. The unit has lots of closet space, exposed beams, and two skylights. There is a two-person breakfast table and a desk with chair that can serve as work spaces. There are two closets with ample space and a large drawer chest. The back door of the unit leads to a tiny porch with a George Foreman electric grill. The area is incredibly lively with restaurants, cafés, dance studios, gyms, parks, music venues, and so much more! H-Mart, Whole Foods, Target, Walgreens, CVS, and Trader Joes are all within walking distance. The Charles River is a lovely 10-15 minute walk down Mass Ave. There are also two Zipcar locations within a five-minute walk from the unit. The unit comes with one visitor parking pass permit so you can utilize off-street parking. The Central Square T-stop is less than 5 minutes walking from the unit. You won't find something that is both this central and this calm. Fall asleep to the peace and quiet of Cambridge's starry nights and wake up to the sunlight from your gorgeous skylights.

About Me
About myself: I'm a poet/writer based in Paris at the moment. This is my sister's apartment, who is a PhD student at Harvard University and will be spending the semester in NYC. This home is cozy, beautiful, and full of light and life. I hope it will offer you as much stimulation and professional thriving as it has done for her.
