Cozy Cape House in Historic Newton Neighborhood —2BR with garage, fully furnished, walk to Boston trains

A cozy, fully furnished 2-bedroom Cape style home in the quiet, family-friendly historic neighborhood of Newton Upper Falls. Steps to public transportation, pubs, and small village shops. Located near Route 9, Routes I-95/128 and the Massachusetts Turnpike for convenient access to surrounding New England towns.

Ideal commuting distance to Cambridge and Boston if working at Harvard, Boston College, Longwood Medical Center, Boston University, Wellesley College, or Brandeis. The city of Newton is nationally known for its high-quality public education both at the elementary and high school levels and is also rated as one of the safest communities in America. The home is conveniently located near parks, playgrounds, and hiking trails along the Charles River.

The layout: the first-floor includes a kitchen, dining room, living room, a breezeway/porch sitting area, and a full bath. Hardwood floors throughout the house (aside from the bath and kitchen). Upstairs there are 2 bedrooms (linens provided) and a washer and dryer in the basement. Attached is a one-car garage and room to park 2 cars in the driveway.

Super economical gas/hot water heating system; new gas stove and roomy French-door refrigerator. Cable and internet ready. No smoking either in the house or on the premises.

From the neighborhood, you can branch out and explore the city of Boston, catch the Red Sox at Fenway Park, visit multiple museums or take in the symphony or theater productions. You would be mere minutes away from city life while enjoying a quiet, safe retreat in the suburbs.

Wishlist — prefer to rent my home August 1, 2019 to June 30, 2020 but dates are negotiable. Hoping that my home will feel like your home away from home as it’s a perfect spot for a couple or a small family on a sabbatical year at one of the many nearby Boston area hospitals or universities. Prior families who have rented my house have been from Norway and the Netherlands for their sabbatical in the US and they’ve loved their stay.

Home can also be rented unfurnished. Kindly contact me for the monthly rental cost if you are interested in leasing it unfurnished. My preference, however, is to lease the home furnished (the cited monthly rent for this post).

Am seeking tenants who will enjoy the unique aspects of living in a quaint New England neighborhood.

Interested? Kindly send me an email. Hoping to “meet” you soon on Skype or another VoIP platform if you’re interested in learning more!
