About

Great three bedroom, two bathroom basement unit a quick walk to Harvard Square, with no shared walls and only one other basement unit. This dignified, secure building is across the street from the Radcliffe Quad. Laundry, storage, and bike storage rooms, as well as access to the beautiful private backyard, are just down the hall. Some utilities (water, garbage, recycling, heat) are included. Electric/gas are not included but have averaged about $100/month for the past decade. Internet/cable are not included - cost would depend on your provider. ---- The location is excellent - it's one of two basement units at 52 Garden street - across the street from the Radcliffe Quad (and Harvard shuttle stop), Google maps it at 0.4 miles from the Harvard Graduate School of Education on Appian Way, 0.4 miles to Harvard Law, and 0.6 miles to Harvard Square T and buses. It's just blocks from the nearby Harvard Botanic Gardens preschool, the Harvard Dance Center (Gym) and Observatory, Graham & Parks public elementary school & playground, and the bus stop for other Cambridge public schools is across the street at the end of the block. It's a well laid out 1335 square feet, and natural light is very surprisingly good for a basement unit - every room has at least one window. The bedrooms are around a corner from the living room for great separation of sound and space; both bathrooms are quite spacious; there’s built-in storage and shelving in the living room, and a little office nook at the end of the hallway. As a basement unit, there are exposed (sealed) pipes running across the ceiling, that heat the space really well, so you don't have to worry about warmth in the winter! Being in the basement allows kids to run and jump to their hearts' content, plus laundry is just down the hall, as is the storage cage, a bike room, and the door to the backyard. There is a set back main entrance and lobby with an electronic entry system, but the side door right on Garden Street provides convenient access to this unit. It's a very friendly building, with beautiful gardens and great neighbors. Parking is by city permit on the street. Please let us know if you have any questions! Amy & Jason
