Stunning Loft - Walking Distance to Harvard - Parking and Private Deck - Fully Furnished from MIT Professor

I am looking for a responsible subletter to take over my loft while I’ll be on sabbatical on the West Coast.

This stunning loft is ideally situated within walking distance to Harvard Square, up-and-coming Union Square, Porter Square, and the Red Line. It’s an exciting area with many other cool amenities, for example, a large climbing gym within a two-minute walk. I am a professor at MIT and easily bike or walk to work. The unit is part of a 6-unit loft condo building with pleasant and respectful neighbors.

This loft features 1800 sq ft over 3 levels of living. The unit has hardwood floors throughout, an open layout chef’s kitchen with walk-in pantry. The unit has vaulted 30' ceilings and two walls of glass that open "garage door" style. The bedroom has an en-suite spa-like master bath and two walk-in closets. Another vaulted ceiling creates a dramatic effect of light and space. The unit also features a private roof deck perfect for entertaining, including a hammock and sun sail. In addition, the unit comes with one direct garage parking space.

The unit is fully furnished and has top-of-the-line designer furniture (dining table and chairs, sofa/bed, bed, desk, etc.). In addition, the unit has a piano, a WaterRower, projector to watch movies, several plants, etc.

Additional features: A/C, balcony, dining room, dishwasher, disposal, stone counter tops, hardwood floors, high ceiling, loft, microwave, Vitamix mixer, modern kitchen, parking, roof deck, storage.
