About

We are looking for tenants -- ideally a family or two professionals -- to rent our cozy, sunny, 1st floor apartment in East Cambridge – steps away from Inman Sq, shops, restaurants – 10 min walk to Lechmere, 15 min walk to Kendall/Central/MIT, and a 20 min walk to Harvard. Bus stop (69, CT2) within 2 minute walk. The 2 bed, 1 bath, 1 den, furnished apartment has beautiful hardwood oak floors, and a beautiful private patio/garden. Water is included in rent. Gas/electricity/cable to be paid by tenant(s). One parking spot is included in rent in attached private, gated driveway. Unit has been occupied for the last nine years and very well-maintained by the owner-couple: Senior Govt. Administrator / Columbia University alumna, and Professor / MIT-EECS Ph.D. alumnus. Spacious, modern, chef's kitchen, dining-living area with a wine fridge, mango-wood dining table set for 6, tons of cabinet storage, beautiful white-quartz countertops, gas range with industrial vent and electric fireplace. Private backyard oasis – recently renovated with paved stones, curated perennials garden with all-weather, outdoor patio furniture set included. Den area with additional storage, W+D unit in finished basement. Apt will come partially furnished – details during showings. Owners are looking to rent the entire apartment with either a single annual lease (preferred), or two individual leases for the two bedrooms, for the summer of 2022. The total monthly rent for the apartment is $3800, and a suggested split is: $1850 and $1950 (incl. one parking spot) per month, respectively (in case of two tenants). Longer term leases -- for instance covering the duration of an academic program or post-doctoral appointment -- will be considered. Good luck with your search!
