Luxury meets Victorian charm in this spacious, newly renovated, 3-bedroom condo in a 2-unit home, located within walking distance to Harvard, Tufts, and Lesley, as well as the Davis Square MBTA, Porter Square MBTA, and Alewife MBTA red line train stations, which offer quick access to MIT.

The architectural details perfectly compliment the open-but-not-too-open-floor concept, complete with exposed brick and shiplap walls. This beautifully designed unit, soaked in natural light, occupies the second and third floors of the house and features a dining room with large bay windows, a gas fireplace in the living room, a master bedroom with walk-in closet and en-suite bathroom with heated floors, double sinks, and French shower door, and a designated room for the Peloton bike, luxury massage chair, and new washer and dryer. Children and guests have privacy with the location of the two bedrooms and second bathroom on the third floor. The top floor also offers access to the unit’s private, sizable rooftop deck, fully furnished with a blissfully tree-shaded sectional sofa, umbrella-protected dining area, a mobile bar, and storage for outdoor covers, tools, and accessories. With a quick-assembly outdoor movie screen and projector and readily accessible second set of tableware, you may never want to leave the 3-season urban oasis. The deck is equipped with all the covers and tools necessary to enjoy it in the spring, summer, and fall, and to protect it during storms and New England winters.

The location of this unit is ideal in Cambridge - a small, brand new park across the street, Pemberton Farms Marketplace (a local, gourmet grocery store, deli, liquor store, and garden center), high quality eye-, dental-, and medical-care facilities, and excellent local private and public schools (The International School of Boston, The Cambridge Matignon School, The Peabody Elementary School, and Rindge Ave. Upper Campus), all within short walking distance. Situated right on Massachusetts Avenue, transportation to and from this unit is a breeze. If you prefer to drive, resident street parking is plentiful, and Mass. Ave. offers you quick access to Route 16, Route 2, and of course, Mass. Ave. itself. Alternatively, catch the Mass Ave. MBTA bus a few steps away, bike on the Alewife Linear Bike Path just around the corner, take the train from any of three nearby MBTA stations, or simply walk to your choice of fantastic local restaurants, bars, and shops in North Cambridge and Somerville. Just a quick jaunt to top-rated restaurants like Season to Taste, The Painted Burro, Foundry on Elm, Rosebud, The Abbey, Gustazo, Alden Harlow, Harvest, and so many more, you will have no shortage of options for dining or takeout.

If cooking is your thing, the kitchen is fully stocked with all the appliances and tools a chef needs, including a dishwasher, oven/stove, smokeless electric infrared grill for indoor or outdoor use, microwave, toaster, coffee maker, grinder, Verismo, Instant Pot, slower cooker, air fryer, blender, bar tools, tableware, and more. This smart unit also boasts Ecobee thermostats, four televisions - each equipped with Apple TV, a HomePod, strategically located Hue smart lights, Ring doorbell, and a record player. You will not find yourself wanting for anything in this home, meticulously furnished for easy living by a couple who are taking a year away to travel and work abroad.

There is no smoking in this home.
