Property Description

Located in the heart of Cambridge is this hidden gem. Originally built in the 1850s this single-family house features historic detailing blended with modern updates. High ceilings on the main floor with wide pine floors and an exposed brick chimney will surely be the talk of guests. The open floor plan offers space for socializing, entertaining and watching snow fall in the winter through the over-sized historic window. An open stair with period railing leads to the second floor with two bedrooms and a full bathroom with blue mosaic tile and free-standing clawfoot tub. Walk out onto a sunny 225 sq ft Fir roof deck and create your own urban farm-to-table experience. The top-level is home to the 3rd bedroom with skylights and a continuation of the exposed brick chimney. On a quiet secret village setting yet walkable to Harvard, Central, Inman and Kendall Squares. Current owners rent parking space in the neighboring garage, fees have been paid through 2019 and can be renewed.
