About

Bright, spacious, gracious house on one of Cambridge's most picturesque streets. Behind the Victorian exterior lies a fully renovated and elegantly furnished duplex equipped with all mod cons. Lower level features living and dining rooms, fully-equipped kitchen (Viking stove), powder room, and a large wrap-around terrace perfect for al fresco meals. Upstairs, there is a massive master bedroom suite with its own sitting area and full bath; a very large study with a skylight and built-in bookshelves; a smaller room currently configured as a den with a Queen-sized sleeper sofa, desk, and TV; and another full bath, with washer-dryer. There is ample closet space in the unit. The basement has an elliptical trainer and home gym area, plus tons of storage for bikes and other gear. The house fronts onto a calm tree-lined street and backs onto its own yard and garden. There is off-street parking and potential use of my car and bike. Just 4-5 minutes on foot gets you to Whole Foods and Inman Square cafes and restaurants; a 10-15 minute walk takes you to Harvard or Central Squares (and Red Line T). This house would be perfect for a couple, a pair of friends, or a family with one child. A sunny, quiet retreat, supremely central to the best of Cambridge.
