About

Condo occupies the top two floors of a baby-Victorian duplex built in the 1860s. There are 4 other units in our building, owner-occupied except for one, by academics and professionals. Ours is almost exclusively furnished with antiques, many of them heirloom pieces. It has all the dishes, linens, etc that you need. This is our home, and we’re looking for someone to take good care of it while we are in Pasadena for the academic year. The first floor has an open plan. There’s an office with a pullout couch (with a real mattress, more comfortable than most beds), desk, chair, coat-closet, and built-in bookcases. It has French doors. There’s also a sitting room, with another couch – perfect for curling up with a book! And a spacious kitchen. We cook, and the kitchen is set up with everything you need from dishes to pots and pans and spices. It has excellent appliances: a large refrigerator, gas stove/electric oven, microwave, Bosch dishwasher. There’s also a Miele washing machine in the unit and coin-op dryer in the basement. Upstairs there are two bedrooms. The larger one has a double bed and dresser with sizable closet. It opens up onto deck in the trees. The other has a twin bed and closet system. There’s one bathroom at the top of the stairs with a tub and shower. The condo has the feel of the suburbs. Morning light streams in through east-facing windows. The deck could double as a tree house. It’s on a very calm (one-way, one-block) street. But it also has all the conveniences of the city. It’s very close to a sizable park, athletic fields, tennis courts, Trader Joe’s (10 minute walk), Whole Foods (5 minutes), the T (8!), buses, and the running path along the Charles. It’s about a 20-minute walk from both MIT and Harvard, 25 to BU. There are many ZIP cars in the neighborhood as well as a car rental agency. This is a perfect location for bikers – and there’s bike storage in the basement with easy bulkhead access. All utilities included. We have central air and heat, high-speed internet, and wifi. Twice monthly cleaning service. You’ll love living here. We do.
