Cambridge 3-4BR single family house near Harvard & MIT-available for 5-8 weeks from 7/8-10/31/20

Our cozy home is ideally located halfway between Harvard and MIT, close to both Inman and Central Squares. It’s a short walk to subway, buses, food stores, shops, cafes, pubs, restaurants, live entertainment, and an easy drive to downtown Boston and access to interstates 90 & 93. We’re one of the rare single-family homes on a quiet block of similar 19th century wooden houses, and directly across the street from a dog and kid friendly park/playground.

The house is set back from the street in the middle of the block, offering quiet and privacy rare to the city. Its shady backyard features a red brick and bluestone patio, with tables, chairs and charcoal grill for outdoor dining, and a new cedar privacy fence. The front porch opens to another brick patio and a sunny garden of vegetables and flowers, available for the picking. The interior features hardwood floors, handmade rugs, photography and folk art, and original decorative tin ceilings.

The ground floor includes a modern kitchen & pantry, a half bath, 2 entryways and an open dining room/living room, an antique upright piano and a wood stove.

The second floor features: a master bedroom (queen size bed) with attached sun porch/office area opening to a small deck above the garden; a full bath (with old fashion claw foot tub), a second bedroom with queen size futon, the TV/family room (which can also be used as an extra bedroom with its double size futon). Up the stairs to the third floor is the third bedroom with a queen size bed, a skylight and its own bath. All bedrooms feature ceiling fans and window AC units.

Amenities include a washer and dryer in the basement; DSL wireless; ; AppleTV with free access to Hulu+LiveTV and Netflix accounts; and a landline phone.

Kids and pets are more than welcome.

About Me
I've done photography all my life as an art and as a job. Retired now, I ran a small commercial photo studio for several decades, and later worked as the head photographer for one of the top Boston area museums. My wife's career is that of a non-profit executive director, working with organizations in the fields of social justice, education, and social welfare. We've had several wonderful experiences renting our home to visiting academics and professionals and their families, and will be happy to provide references.
