Rates from USD $3500 | Monthly

House | Entire Home | House Sitting Negotiable
Available Dates:
From July 1, 2025


Welcome to Arlington, one of the safest and friendliest towns in the Cambridge/Boston area. Near Harvard, MIT, Tufts and accessible to all the universities in the area. The Home ------------ This 1850s historical home was internally gutted to create a modern, cozy, bright and airy townhouse retaining much of the original charming architecture with beautiful, traditional wooden flooring, and modern amenities like a dishwasher, laundry and central heating and cooling. The house is on 3 levels, with bedrooms on separate floors for greater privacy, each with its own en suite bathroom (plus a half bath on the main level). The master bedroom boasts a generous walk-in closet. Work or relax in your own private backyard/garden with a patio for BBQ’ing, enjoying outdoor breakfast, or just taking in the surrounding greenery and animal life. The Neighborhood ------------------------ The immediate area has everything you need, even if you don’t have a car. Two grocery stores, a pharmacy, hardware store, local wine store and multiple banks are a 2-5 minute walk away. You’ll also find diverse restaurants, bakeries and cafes just nearby (happy to give recommendations!), with many other options in Cambridge and Somerville not too far away, along with a wonderful public library (where you can even check out an instant pot and an ice cream maker!) and community education opportunities. You’ll love your neighbors, who are professionals, academics, artists and overall genuinely warm and welcoming people. Staying Active ----------------- Tennis courts, a running track, baseball and soccer fields, basketball courts, public nature parks, playgrounds, an 11 mile walking/jogging/biking trail (Minuteman Trail), a beautiful pond in the center of town (perfect for kayaking, walking, picnics, fishing, turtle watching, etc.), gyms, martial arts, yoga, community pool, ice skating and many other amenities are all within walking distance! Day Care and Schools --------------------------- For the little ones, there are two 5-star day care and preschool (bilingual!) options just around the corner, with many others nearby (including Mandarin education). Arlington boasts many excellent schools in the top tier of the state, all walkable from this location. Transportation and Parking ------------------------------ There is very frequent bus service just a 2 minute walk away going into Harvard Square with connections to the Red Line (metro). You can also bike to the Red Line via a beautiful commuter jog/bike trail. Other connections are also nearby. The driveway can accommodate two vehicles for your own parking needs, with an EV charge port just across the street. Daytime guests will have no trouble finding free parking on the street nearby. Contact Us -------------- We have no doubt that you’ll love this space and neighborhood as we have. We’re happy to provide in-person or on-line tours to help you make your decision. Don’t delay, please get in touch :).
