We're looking for a responsible individual/couple/family to rent our home while we are on sabbatical. The house is located on a beautiful, quiet, safe, friendly, tree-lined street. It is a short walk to public transportation (Green Line MBTA) and a small village shopping area with restaurants, parks, a lake, and playgrounds. The public school system is outstanding, with the elementary school a 10 minute walk. Downtown Boston is 20-30 min by car or public transit; major universities and medical centers are all close by. The house is classic New England with abundant light, bay windows, modern appliances, renovated kitchen, wrap around porch, back deck and yard, and outdoor Weber gas grill.

We are located in the Waban village of Newton, a city of about 80,000. Often referred to as the Garden City, Newton is a very livable, pleasant town close to Boston yet far enough away to be quiet and peaceful. We are conveniently located next to the Mass Pike (I-90) and route 9, but you cannot hear them from our house. We have lived in this house for 22 years and raised our three children here. We absolutely love the house and area. There is a beautiful park called Cold Spring Park a 5 minute walk away which has a 2 mile forested circular path, great for walking, running, and cross country skiing. Tennis courts, basketball courts, and playgrounds for young children are close by.

The restaurants in our area are outstanding. Walnut Grille is one of the best vegetarian restaurants in Boston. Buttonwood is a small upscale bistro - all are in walking distance. Terrific coffee, whether it be Starbucks or local cafe's.

Additional photos of the house and surrounding area available on request.
