Description

If you are looking to rent a lovely home, conveniently located in a safe suburb with a small city vibe and an abundance of natural beauty? This home is for you! The town of Arlington is consistently voted one of the best suburbs in the U.S. It's friendly, hip, easy to get around, and just 6 miles west of Boston. Additionally, our schools are ranked in the top 25 in Massachusetts, and outstanding Universities are easy to get to - Harvard and Tufts are just a 10-minute drive or 20-minute bike ride. MIT is just a bit further. This spacious home is sure to please with - • 3 bedrooms • 2 full baths, each with shower and tub/one has a large jacuzzi • 3 additional rooms, all with comfy couches and stuffed chairs, beautiful artwork & charm • 4 eating areas - dining and large modern kitchen plus open-air front porch, enclosed back veranda and back yard w/ tables and chairs. This turn-of-the-century home blends traditional and modern designs, calming and cheerful colors, with abundant natural and well-placed light sources house to create a Feng-Shui vibe . These strategic combinations elicit the art of living in the flow, making the home a natural mood enhancer and functional yet creative and cozy space. The majority of items in the home are 100% natural: wood, fibers, ceramics, glass, metal, crystal, marble, etc. THE LIVING ENVIRONMENT The sunroom has decor and artwork that pops with color and vitality during daylight hours. Natural light from double windows and four daylight bulbs in the ceiling fan hanging just below a skylight makes this room feel simultaneously vibrant yet serene. The half-wall open staircase leads to the upper-level hallway, which has dimmable, recessed lighting that, along with a 15-piece votive candle wall assembly, turns the sunroom into a tranquil sanctuary at night. The well-appointed kitchen has all stainless-steel dishwasher, sink/disposal, refrigerator, and double oven/stove, complementing a beautiful quartz countertop. The Italian red tiled floors, white shaker cabinets, and geometrically designed metal ceilings add a unique blend of modern and traditional. Dimmable lighting creates a serene ambiance for dining. These appealing features make cooking and dining a pleasurable experience. The enclosed porch is steps away. Bringing in ample natural light with a triad of exposed window views the outdoors feels like it lives within. A large room off the kitchen doubles as an entertainment space, even as its simple yet elegant design serves as an office or reading room if not needed as a third bedroom. The triple pocket doors ensure privacy as the room easily converts to a bedroom with a comfortable plush queen mattress convertible couch. A modern full bath with tub/shower, marble countertops, and designer lighting is steps away. Brimming with sunshine, three walls of oversized windows encase the open floor design of the living room and dining area. Comfy couches and area carpets covering the beautiful hardwood floors are adjacent to a natural wood-burning fireplace. The glass dining table has six natural cane chairs and a unique dimmable light fixture hovers above. The next level has two bedrooms and a spacious bathroom with a jacuzzi, a separate shower, and a bidet. The oversized primary bedroom has two double-mirrored closets with great depth for extra storage. Added amenities include: • Two skylights. • A ceiling fan. • Dimmable recessed lights. • A pellet stove for warmth and ambiance. • A mirrored makeup desk. Relax your muscles in the massage chair before you fall asleep in the cozy Tempur-Pedic queen mattress and bed. The second upstairs bedroom is outfitted with a queen bed, headboard, nightstand, dresser, and desk in matching natural blonde wood. A windowed wall lets in plenty of light, and a dimmable overhead light provides a peaceful glow at night. I'm glad you are considering my home for your home away. I look forward to speaking with you!
