Furnished Rooms in Brookline Home near HMS, Longwood Medical Area

FURNISHED ROOMS IN BROOKLINE HOME WITH PRIVATE BATH, WALK TO HMS/LMA/NU/Longwood -- perfect for visiting professor or scholar - short term fully furnished; quiet, private, comfortable, ideally located.
.6 mile (14 min) walk to HMS or Longwood Medical Area; bus 66 to Harvard Square; 5 min walk to T (D Line, Brookline Village or C line, Coolidge Corner).

My two kids grown and flown; their quiet, private, fully furnished rooms are available for short-term or long-term monthly rental. I'm ideally situated in Brookline Village, near corner of Harvard and Aspinwall; many coffee shops/restaurants and small parks, a 5 min walk to bus/subway, walking distance to Longwood Medical Area, HMS. Public transportation nearby gets you anywhere you can't walk or bike (bike paths everywhere; Emerald Necklace greenway nearby).

My home is a duplex (3 floors; one of 2 condominium units side by side) w/ 3 bedrooms and 2 baths and a finished basement; the vertical layout makes for very nice privacy inside. Door separates my(owner's) third-floor ‘suite’ from the second floor at second floor level; I have 3rd floor to myself w/ my private full bath, and the second floor (yours) has 2 bedrooms and the second full bath. The smaller bedroom (available on or before January 1st, $1,300/month) has a twin bed, desk and chair, closet and two large windows, one overlooking rear private sitting garden. The larger front bedroom (available now, $1500/month) has a full size bed, desk and chair, small couch, dresser, closet and three windows, two of which overlook quiet street and park.) Both rooms share the second floor full bath which has marble floor/counter, bath tub and shower.

The neighborhood is very quiet, safe, and quaint. I have very pleasant private outside space for reading/grilling, etc, w/ table and chairs, grill, and hammock. Living room, dining area and kitchen offer all the comforts and amenities of home. Fully equipped kitchen has granite countertops, dishwasher, disposal, stove, microwave. Living room has gas fireplace, TV, piano, high ceilings, crown moldings. Central air and wifi throughout. Large washer and dryer in basement; linens provided.

Rent rate is fully inclusive and by the month; prefer longer term (quarterly/semester, 3+ months)

I've hosted visiting professors and scientists from Italy, Hungary, Brazil, Colombia and Australia; scholars from China; relocating executives from Jupiter and Bethesda. Ideal for someone wanting a safe, comfortable home and academic environment, or someone moving to Boston wanting a well maintained, neat and clean place to live while exploring the Boston area for more permanent housing. No smoking, no pets, no drama, no overnight guests (exceptions by agreement). If you are interested, please contact me with your dates and needs. Thank you.
