About

Fully furnished first-floor unit of a 2-unit condominium (the second unit, with separate entrance, is on the second floor). Walk to Porter Square in 8 min, Davis Square in 12 min, Harvard in 15-20 min. The house is located on a quiet street in a residential area, but two large supermarkets are within easy walking distance at Porter Square, various specialty shops are also close by; and many coffee shops, restaurants and other businesses are just a short walk away. Washer/dryer installed in unit. Hardwood floors throughout. Some of the furnishings include: central heating/air-conditioning, good size flat screen TV, DVD player; queen-size bed; dining room table and chairs; living room couch & chairs; some bookcases etc. The dining room is spacious enough to easily accommodate an office desk and "Aeron" office chair (see photograph). Closet space and lots of storage space for clothing in furnished dressers. Eat-in kitchen with appliances in excellent condition; gas range/oven; toaster, dishes, pots, pans, cooking utensils. etc. are also available. In addition to the full bath, the bedroom has a half-bath (with washlet) attached to it (1.5 baths was not an option on the form so I listed 2). Utilities separate (actual expenses to be paid by tenant). Cable TV, wireless high speed internet optional. Some storage available in basement also. Ideal for academics/sabbaticals and visiting researchers. Close to Harvard, Tufts, Lesley; near public transportation with direct service to MIT and Brandeis. Note: the unit is actually a two-bedroom with 1180 square feet of living space. During the time of the rental, however, one of the bedrooms (which functions as a study) will be used as a storage closet and is not part of the lease. Thus I have listed the unit as a one-bedroom. Minus this space (which will be closed off), the effective size of the apartment that is for rent is thus 1020 square feet. (That said, in the past, I have on occasion rented the unit with the study open and usable; I would be happy to do this again, at adjusted rent, if appropriate).
