This lovely 2 bedroom is an easy walk to the subway and colleges. People from all over have stayed here, and they've often remarked how welcoming and unique it is. It's a great place to enjoy your coffee on the front porch, gather with friends on the back deck or share a meal in the open dining/living area. The street is quiet and shaded by trees, but everything you need (grocery, pharmacy, restaurant, coffee shop, bar, flower shop, you name it) is just a 5 minute walk away.
The apartment is the entire first floor of a charming 3-story house including a washer/dryer, bath, and full kitchen. You have exclusive use of an open covered front porch with chairs overlooking the garden. The back yard with a deck shaded by a tall River Birch (which my three children and I planted in 1990) is also a lovely place to eat or gather with company.
Other things to note
There are window bedroom air conditioners
I have lived in Cambridge for 33 years in the same house (except for 5 years when our family lived in a Harvard Director's residence). My 2 daughters now live in Brooklyn and my son is in Hong Kong but they had a great time running up the front stairs and down the back stairs onto the deck growing up and often visit. We've always had international visitors living here (and still do) and hosted many student and community events I really enjoy welcoming people from all over the US and overseas and introducing them to Cambridge. The girls and I sing world music and we often have travelling musicians/singers stay here. In the fall , I plan to host some Group Muse events in the house.
