About

Located on a quiet street in sought-after West Cambridge, the condo is on the first floor of a well maintained two family owner-occupied late 1800s Cambridge home. Hardwood floors throughout; large eat-in updated kitchen with modern gas stove, dishwasher, and granite countertops; spacious and open living and dining rooms with bay windows and period details; new central AC (a rarity in Cambridge!); in-unit modern washer & dryer; a full bath; and a large mudroom/three seasons porch off of the kitchen. On the lower level accessible by interior stairs from the kitchen there is a large finished basement space and a half bath. Enjoy this versatile extra space as a family room, to welcome visitors, or use it as an office, rec room, or an extra bedroom - lots of possibilities! There is landscaped side yard with garden furniture and seasonal berries for your exclusive recreational use, one off-street parking spot, plus easy and permit-free street parking. Condo is fully furnished to comfortably accommodate 4-5 people (queen bed in BR1, double trundle bed in BR2, 2 persons sleeper couch on the lower level). Dishes, pots/pans, kitchen appliances, linens, towels etc are all provided so you will have all you need for a comfortable stay. No owners' clutter to deal with, lots of space throughout. Private back entrance from the side yard. Well behaved pets (cats/dogs) considered (with size and breed limitations due to insurance constraints). Fantastic location and neighborhood! Harvard is within quick and easy reach (3 direct buses to Harvard square stop within a block/few minutes walk, bus ride is under 10 minutes); alternatively you can pedal to Harvard on a bike path (and there is a public Blue Bike station with bikes for rent one block from the house), or even stroll in nice weather – Harvard sq is just under 2 miles away). From Harvard you can take the red line T to MIT and anywhere in Boston, including other Boston-area universities, or buses to local towns such as Somerville, Medford (Tufts U), Arlington, Brighton, Brookline, etc. Shuttle bus to Bentley goes down a street one block from the house. The house is just steps to Fresh Pond reservation, an urban oasis for walking, jogging, and biking. Within several minutes walk is acclaimed Sofra café, a large supermarket with pharmacy, a library, several playgrounds, and more. A 10 min walk in one direction takes you to a quaint Huron village with shops, restaurants, and other local businesses, and a 5-10 min walk in another direction leads to bordering Watertown and Belmont with a variety of ethnic and American restaurants and local shops. Escape the congestion of Harvard square and enjoy more space indoors and out without giving up proximity and easy access to Harvard!
