Large 886 square foot apartment in a beautiful Victorian house near Cambridge. Off-street parking and close to public transportation. High 10-foot ceilings, decorative moldings, and rich colors give this apartment a cozy elegance. Newly installed split air conditioners make the apartment even more comfortable.
You enter through a private entrance to a living room/office space. Straight ahead is a small bedroom with a Queen-sized bed, dresser, closet, and side tables. To the right is an eat-in kitchen. To the left is a large living room that can also double as a second bedroom. The living room has a pullout futon coach and day bed. Note that the living room/bedroom space isn't private as access to the bathroom is through the living room.
Perfect for couples, roommates, or small families.
Amenities: The apartment has a complete kitchen and bath, with coffeemaker, microwave, toaster, dishwasher, dishes, pots, pans, etc., and a small washer and dryer. Linens, towels, and basic supplies are included as well. There is high-speed WIFI and a Smart TV. Newly installed split air conditioners add additional heat in the winter and cooling in the summer. The living room has games for kids.
This is a private apartment with a separate entrance. We live in the apartment above so it is easy to accommodate any reasonable requests. We are also available to answer any questions or address any concerns you may have. Ring our bell, call, or shoot me a text or e-mail.
Location: The apartment is located in a quiet tree lined block that is close to East Arlington restaurants and shops, the 77 bus line to Porter/Harvard, and the Minuteman Bike path. There is also a small park with a playground down the street.
It is a twelve minute walk to the Alewife Red Line T-station, where you can get downtown in less than 30 minutes, a five minute walk to a major supermarket (Stop & Shop), and a 20 minute walk to Davis Square. It is 1.3 miles (2 kilometers) to Tufts, 3 miles (5 kilometers) to Harvard, and is easily accessible to Route 2, I-95 and I-93.
If you are driving you can get to historic Lexington, Concord, and great hiking and leaf-peeping locations in less than half an hour.
Parking is available for up to two cars if stacked.
Private entrance inside a shared yard. Note that sometimes our super friendly 18 pound dog is in the yard, but he isn't usually left alone for long.
Interaction with guests
This is a private fully-furnished apartment with a separate entrance.
Other things to note
Since the pictures were taken we have added a flatscreen TV, along with better chairs, and additional lamps and paintings. Also, we now have a portable crib available and split air conditioning unit.
Check out is at 11:00. Check in is anytime after 3 p.m. If no other guests are expected after you, you may check out later. If the room is not reserved the night before your arrival, we can probably accommodate an earlier check-in.
When you park please use the space farthest away from the house. We need to fit 3 cars in the driveway.
When you check out please leave any used sheets, towels, or other linens in a pile in the kitchen.
