Last Updated Yesterday


Enormous yet refined 1000 sq. feet (90 sq. meter) one bedroom plus enclosed "sitting porch" and eat-in kitchen in historic 1927 building. Twice the size of many other one bedroom apartments on this site. Elegant Pre-war apartment with lots of charm, stunning woodwork, hardwood floors, and many built-in bookcases. Giant living room (330 sq. feet, 30 sq. meter) with seven big windows. Sixteen windows total. Pet friendly. Private parking spot adjacent to entrance. Perfect location right in the heart of Northampton, two blocks from The Academy of Music and Mama Iguana's. This particular apartment was built to be the finest apartment in Northampton in 1927. It constitutes one half of the fourth floor (the top floor) of Mayfair Manor, at 123 South Street, facing downtown. Maybe your great aunt lived here, back in the day. You know, the cool rich one. Large cedar closet, just like Grandma used to have. Original heavy brass fittings on glass fronted kitchen cabinets. Original 1927 tile work in bath. Original (recently refinished) hardwood floors throughout. Sixteen large windows with three exposures, overlooking Northampton with seasonal views of the nearby dome of Sage Hall at Smith College. Step out your door and be in the very desirable heart of it all, 0.2 miles from the Smith College gates. Walk score so high it destroys the walk score app. This apartment is great for someone looking for a lot of space in a perfect location. Rent includes heat and hot water. Please note that apartment is unfurnished; that it is on the fourth floor and that there is no elevator; and that we are seeking a tenant from 1 May 2021 through at least 30 April 2022. (Longer term possible.) Please call Jennifer at Robinson Real Estate (413) 530-9893 - realtor fee applies. Be ready to tell Jennifer what brings you to this area, and how long you plan to stay.
