Quiet house in the heart of the city : Cambridge, MA USA

Greetings and welcome to our home in the city of Cambridge! 

We have recently completed renovations on our light-filled 100 year old two-family house. We have a lovely new kitchen with a large, granite center island, two brand new bathrooms, a living and a dining room, two queen-sized bedrooms, an office, new windows and refinished floors and walls. There's a large front 2nd floor balcony for sitting and a back porch off the kitchen, a driveway and two-car garage, front and back yard gardens, and very friendly neighbors. We love our home, take good care of it, and would take loving care of yours. (Downstairs, on the first floor, there is a separate apartment which is the home of a very quiet, gracious woman whom you will rarely see but who will be there if you need her. )

We are within easy walking distance of Harvard Square (Harvard University) along with Porter and Inman Squares (which we recommend,) and a half block from numerous stores, excellent restaurants, and the bus and train lines. Theatre and a variety of live music venues are an easy walk from our home; Boston is a simple ride across the river.  NYC is 4 hours away by bus or train, as are the beautiful rocky coasts of northern New England.

We have a very friendly indoor cat.  If you would be interested in taking care of him while you are here, we would be delighted. (We can also make other short term arrangements for him if you'll be using our home as a base for travel in New England.) We'd be happy to take care of your pets in exchange. We are also open to exchanging cars if you are.

Please feel free to write us with any questions you might have.
