Entire beautiful floor in a Victorian Mansion (Newton Corner) all inclusive

Spacious 2 bedroom 2200 sq. feet with modern bathroom and kitchen to share on the 3rd floor of a beautiful home. The kitchen is a small galley kitchen, microwave and burners but no oven. You could have access to the main kitchen with notice. Heat/Central AC/Electricity/Wifi included.

The entry is through a back door and up our back staircase. We can close the doors to the staircase, but we typically use that as well, so the fit from a personality standpoint is important for us.

Parking for 1-2 cars off street. Use of yard and deck. 5 min walk to Newton Corner and express bus into downtown Boston. 15-20 minutes via public transport and/or 20-30 min by bicycle along river cycle paths to virtually any of the Boston/Cambridge universities. Beautiful quiet family oriented neighborhood, and Newton grammar and middle schools within walking distance. It is fully furnished, but furniture can be moved to accommodate. Available in December 2019 or later (date negotiable). Prefer 6-12 months.

We will travel periodically and want some help with dogsitting/housesitting during the travel if possible. If not possible, not a deal breaker.

We have two mature dogs and an adult son who lives with us but is a FT student and works, so need someone who will tag team with him occasionally (but have a dog walker/sitter too). The dogs are friendly and well behaved, trained and in a routine. If you don't like dogs don't apply.

Washer/Dryer (free) in basement.
