Fully Equipped, High-End Furniture 2BR Near Harvard/MIT

Cambridge, Massachusetts, United States
Rates from USD $4100 | Monthly

Apartment or Condo | Entire Home
Available Dates:
From August 1, 2024 until July 31, 2025

Description

Move-in date as early as late June/early July, if desired. Preference for stays of 9-12 months but willing to consider semester-long rentals. Please inquire about rates for semester-long stays. Tastefully decorated with high-end furniture and equipped with everything you need, this is a beautiful 2BR apartment located within a short walking distance of Harvard Square. I provide everything from bedding and linens to cookware and towels as well as small kitchen appliances. Both bedrooms currently have a desk. Limited storage in basement storage unit. Unit has one assigned parking space. If you know the neighborhood, you know how difficult parking is in this area as well as generally around Harvard and Porter Sqares, Central, and Cambridgeport. It is a major amenity to come home to a parking spot! 10 minutes walk to Harvard Yard, 12 minutes to Harvard Square. 10 minutes walk to Central Square T. Apartment is located on a small, quiet and leafy side street between Mass Ave and Harvard St. Very safe and residential neighborhood. Heat, water, hot water, garbage disposal included in rent. Cooking gas (ca. $12), electricity (ca. $30-40, appliances only), internet extra. Washer/dryer in basement for small monthly fee. As in all buildings in the area, heating costs as paid by landlord to the building association have unfortunately gone up massively since winter 2023. Luckily for tenants, hot water and heat are included with the rent, meaning no unwelcome surprise high energy bills in the colder months. Removing the furniture from the current second bedroom and replacing it with children's beds, for example, can be discussed for a fee. The apartment currently does not have AC, due to the location/building type it stays reasonably cool even during sweltering summer days. But just in case people prefer it, I am having window units installed this summer throughout the apartment. They will be in place by the time a new tenant moves in. Available as of July but move-in dates are somewhat negotiable. Preference is for a year-long lease or something close to that but will consider shorter stays for one semester. Video tour available upon request. If interested, please get in touch with a little bit of information about yourself, I look forward to hearing from you!
