A unique freestanding single-family, 4 bedroom, 3 bath home with private yard surrounded by trees in the heart of Cambridge's Observatory Hill / Huron Village neighborhood. For a 3D virtual tour, type the following link information into your browsere on this link: First Floor Features: Master bedroom with ensuite bath with shower, two smaller bedrooms, full bath bathroom. High vaulted ceilings with skylights throughout the first floor. Fabulous living room, classy, large open plan kitchen with island. Fantastic dining room adjoining the kitchen on one side & a sliding door to the deck and yard. Basement Features: A stairway from the first floor leads, on the right side, to a large room has historically been used as the fourth bedroom (or a good sized office); there is an adjacent lobby area adjoining a bathroom with shower and a stairway and door leading to the yard. There is a large space containing a washer and drier and laundry space and which also has substantial storage opportunities. On the left side of the stairway there is a large room which is perfect for a playroom (for kids), a pingpong table, or a “man cave” for multimedia television viewing. Finally, adjacent to the last room is a reasonable size room perfect for a home office from where one can zoom to work. Outdoor Space: The yard is unusually large, perfect for barbecuing, entertaining, playing badminton. There is a good off-street driveway that can accommodate two cars in tandem. Mechanical Systems: Central system heating and hot water are powered by a modern gas furnace and hot water tank. Living room and master bedrooms have split system air conditioning. House available with four good quality existing beds. Lease Terms: Price is $5,500 per month. Tenants to pay all utilities (gas, electric, water and sewer), and other services such as cable, internet and telephone services. Tenants are responsible for a broker’s fee. Lease required, to run for twelve, six or seven months from January 1st. Pets are negotiable. Transportation: The house is located in the middle of a quiet street, but is close to major arteries: Garden St., Concord Ave., Walden St. and Huron Ave. You can walk to Harvard Square in 20 minutes and to Porter Square (where you can meet up with the Red Line, a commuter rail line, and buses) in 15 minutes, passing many beautiful houses. There are bus lines running on Concord Ave. between Walden St. and Harvard Sq. Shopping and Eating and Other Amenities: The Boudreau branch of the Cambridge Public Library is located at the end of the Donnell St.. There are good opportunities for shopping and eating here in Huron Village within a few blocks. The Danehy Park complex, — where one can jog, run fast, play soccer, baseball or basketball — is just a few blocks away. Equally close is Raymond Park, which has a children’s playground, serves as an off-leash dog park (during certain hours), is a venue for frisbee playing, and which provides the home for Cambridge Family Microsoccer (soccer for kids aged 4-6), and provides practice fields for some of Cambridge Youth Soccer’s younger teams. This is a “must-see” for tenants who are looking for a great single family home in the city that has few with great outdoor space on a quiet street.
