Single-family home on Cambridge-Somerville border available May 2020

A gem on the Cambridge-Somerville border for the month of May in 2020. One of the only single-family homes in the area, this furnished house has two bedrooms, each with a queen bed (one BR can easily serve as a home office or nursery), one bath, a comfortable living room with an amazing gas fireplace for cozy winter nights, large dining room, ample kitchen, private fenced-in backyard, two reserved off-street parking spots. The house is fully equipped -- including brand new dishwasher, brand new range/oven, coffee maker, washer/dryer, wifi, etc.

The neighborhood is one of the best in Cambridge and Somerville -- active but much less busy than the main squares. Steps from a great cafe and bakery, wine and cheese shop, Whole Foods, pharmacy, public library, bike share, three parks (one with tennis courts) and some of the best restaurants in the area (Dali, Bergamot) and some great cheap eats (Thai, Indian, pizza). You can walk to Harvard and Lesley campuses/Harvard Square/MBTA Red Line station in 10-12 minutes. Or walk to Union, Inman and Porter squares in 15 minutes. MIT/Central/Kendall and Tufts University/Davis Square are a 35 minute stroll. Or hop on the bus for ten minutes and you are there -- the house is right on bus stops for 69, 83, 86 and 87 bus lines.

Very few properties in the area have the space, amenities and privacy of this house. The home is well-maintained and furnished and decorated with comfortable charm.
