This fully-furnished apartment is more than half of the first floor of a grand Victorian house, built in 1860. It used to occupy the entire block on which it sits. It has 11-foot ceilings, two (non working) marble fireplaces and a living room with walnut paneling and butler's pantry. Perfect for an academic sabbatical of one to twelve months. It has a patio right next to the front door. There is a small park nearby for a short walk, and a bike path along the Charles River for more exercise. The apartment has its own entrance and its own off-street parking spot (potential for a 2nd space on request). Watertown, just west of Boston, is a small, quiet town of two- and single-family homes. There's very little traffic in our part of town. It's very convenient to downtown Boston, to Cambridge and to Route 128. There are many nice restaurants within a mile radius. You can walk to Watertown Square, where there are many amenities of a small downtown. The Charles River is a great place to explore. There's a bus to Harvard Square a short walk away. There's also express bus to Downtown and busses to Kenmore and Central Squares. It's a short ride to Harvard Square or downtown Boston. Very convenient access by car, bike or public transportation to MIT, Harvard, BU and Bentley. Previous sabbatical visitors have had positions at Harvard, MIT and Northeastern. Some of our visitors have appreciated the company of our golden retriever Oliver. He stays in our unit and an enclosed yard, but is available for playing, especially with kids.
