Great space to store bikes, strollers, skis etc. - landscaped fenced-in side yard with garden furniture for your exclusive (not shared) recreational use. Great space for your friendly pup too!

Tenant pays electric and gas directly to local utility company by establishing an account in their name. - well behaved pets (cats/dogs) considered (with size and breed limitations on dogs due to insurance rules). While best suited for a couple or a small family, the condo can comfortably accommodate a larger family group of up to 5 or even 6 people (queen bed in BR1, double trundle bed in BR2, 2 persons sleeper couch on the lower level). The condo comes fully furnished, including dishes, pots/pans, kitchen appliances, linens, towels etc. If desired, the rental can be provided partly furnished (with furniture but without bedding/dishes/etc). No owners' clutter to deal with, lots of space throughout (enough for a couple of your own small furniture items is needed). 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 university 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, sports fields (tennis, soccer, baseball, municipal golf) 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!
