About

We are ideally located in a very attractive residential area and on a very quiet street just 3 miles west of the city of Boston. Additionally, Boston College is 1.3 miles away, Boston University is 2.2 miles away and 1.8 miles away from Brigham and Woman's Hospital, Dana Farber and Beth Israel Hospitals. There is public transportation on the Green Line (C and D) within 1 block. Or, you can drive in quite quickly and easily into the city of Boston, Cambridge, Newton not to mention a quick hop onto 95/128 or the Mass Pike. Across the street from our home, we have a really nice green park with a playground, field for playing or resting, walking path and 6 tennis courts. Within a 5 min walk, we have outstanding multi-cultural and outstanding restaurants in Washingston Square and more up the road in Coolidge Corner and Newton Center which is also loaded with shops, more restaurants, coffee shops, banks and even a weekly Farmer's Market plus everything else one needs! Our home is a beautiful Victorian built in 1898. We have hardwood floors throughout our house and beautifully carved mahogany fireplaces. There are stained glass windows and a kitchen skylight. We have a mix of antiques & contemporary furniture, oriental rugs and a variety of art decorating our home. We feel it’s both comfortable and appealing. We have 3+ bedrooms, 3 1/2 baths, big and open kitchen (eat in) with a professional 6 burner range/oven, 2 sinks, dishwasher, formal dining room, living room and office/study. The 3 bedrooms and 2 full baths are on 2nd floor. On the 3rd floor we have two very large rooms and a full bath which could be play areas for children, more office space, artist studio or however you may want to use it. We have central AC to beat the summer heat and a yard with a garden and a patio for outside grilling and dining to enjoy the summer months. Our neighbors are very friendly. We are a family of three. Marc is a Technology and Business Consultant running his own company and Melanie is Private Chef and and artist. Our son, Calder, is in 11th grade. We still have his "kid" toys and games that we are happy to share with you if you have children. We have no doubt you'd be comfortable here in our home and love the area!
