About

A contemporary townhouse in Cambridge with 3 very large bedrooms, including two bedrooms with their own bathrooms. Great for families with kids. Ask if you need any info on local schools. More pictures available once you contact me. Large open fully equipped kitchen. A huge kitchen island is perfect for family breakfasts and dinners, cooking with friends, and even kids' homework. Oven, stove, dishwasher, microwave, toaster oven, refrigerator, trash compactor and garbage disposal. Dishes, pots, pans, coffee maker and other cooking utensils all included. The dining room holds a large dining table and 8 chairs. The living room has comfortable leather couches, two glass side tables and a glass coffee table. If you have kids, don't worry -- all our furniture is sturdy and easy to clean. Second floor has a family room with TV, a library/office nook (with plenty of bookshelves and a desk) and a large master bedroom with a queen bed and an attached bathroom. There are two large well organized closets in the master bedroom (one of them is a walk-in closet) and three sets of dressers. On the third floor, there are two large bedrooms and a laundry room with energy-efficient washer and dryer and an ironing board and storage space. One of the bedrooms has two twin beds, a large dresser and a desk, the other -- a couch with a fold-out bed, a twin bed, desk and bookshelves. Both bedrooms have large well-equipped closets (one of the bedrooms has a walk-in closet). More beds can be added upon your request, including bunk beds or cribs. There is a full bathroom on the third floor, accessible through two doors: directly from one of the bedrooms and through another door, so that those who need to get to it at night don't have to go through the bedroom. In the basement, there is a storage room and an attached large garage that can fit two cars. If you aren't driving, you can store all your bikes and other things there. There is a lot of guest parking for all your guests. This house has what no other place in Cambridge can offer: the association indoor swimming pool, open 24/7, completely free and like your private swimming pool, except better, because all the maintenance is done for you. There is also a jacuzzi and hot tub there, as well as two shower rooms. The pool is not large and it's somewhat shallow (1.5m on the deepest side), but it's great for kids, and there are swim instructors whom you can hire for private lessons there. Enjoy the beautiful grounds, while snow plowing and maintenance are taken care by the association! All paths and roads are promptly cleared early in the morning. You will be right near Fresh Pond, with beautiful walking paths, and within easy walking distance of multiple restaurants and shopping centers: Whole Foods, Trader Joes, Star Market grocery store, as well as TJMaxx, Staples and other stores. Walk to Alewife T station or to Mt Auburn cemetery park or to Charles River and beyond. Even Harvard Sq. is only 30min WALK away. If you are a runner, run all the way to the Esplanade and into Boston, or, in the other direction, into Arlington, Lexington and beyond -- all on the safe paths, not on the roads. Parks abound nearby. Right on the bus stop that goes into Harvard Sq T station. Plus many other buses within 5 minute walk -- so you can get to wherever you are going on public transportation easily any time of day. And if you are driving, enjoy your own garage. Kids are welcome! There are three playgrounds within less than five minute walk. We are responsive and responsible owners and will make sure your life here is comfortable. Central A/C, central heat. The house is very energy-efficient. We offer an option of all utilities included for an additional fee. You move in, and everything is ready for you. Cable modem and working wifi are provided. You will need to sign up for your own cable service ($66/month).
