Furnished, well appointed one bedroom apartment on the first floor of an owner-occupied two-family home. Quiet street in Huron Village near the Fresh Pond reservation. Public Bus to Harvard (10 minute ride) is half a block away. 2 Bikes (with helmets) are available with unit for your use.

The floor-thru unit has the following features: large Living room with a seating for 5 people - the American Leather sleeper turns into a very comfy double bed for guests - and curtains to shield the room for privacy from the rest of the unit; Dining room has a built-in china cabinet; eat-in kitchen with pantry and cork flooring, back hall with in-unit washer and dryer; bedroom (queen bed) with large closet; foyer with a desk and laser printer, with 2 additional large closets, bathroom with heated tile flooring.

Basement storage is available if needed. Kitchen is well equipped including new Nespresso machine for delicious morning coffee which can be enjoyed on the front porch.

We have a garage where bikes are stored and a driveway, but would need to negotiate regarding its long-term use. There is ample on-street parking using our resident permit.

The neighborhood is quiet and residential; Huron Village (10 minute walk) has a couple of grocery stores, several small restaurants, a bookstore, some boutiques etc; a 12 minute walk away is a shopping plaza housing a Whole Foods, Trader Joe's and various other stores.

We are in the greenest part of Cambridge - Fresh Pond Reservation has a 2.2 mile walking/running loop; Mount Auburn Cemetery is nearby and is a treasure of walking paths, trees and history, and Danehy park has 4 soccer fields, a running track and several baseball fields.
