Our home is recently renovated in 2012 in family neighborhood. We are 1 mile from Wellesley College on the Marathon Route and train station. Large kitchen ideal for cooking and entertaining. Our GMC Yukon seats 8 and is free for your use while here.
This house is on a quiet street which backs up to Perrin Park - the playground is idea for young children but there is basketball and a running track.
There is a master bedroom and three other bedrooms on the second floor. The master has a queen bed, one has a full, and there are two with twins. In addition our basement is finished and there is a queen sleeper sofa there. Of course we have air mattresses for any extra guests. The house is approx. 3,500 sq./ft not counting the finished part of the basement.
The yard is fully fenced. We do not have a dog yet, but you are welcome to bring yours (please clean up if possible). We prefer your dog be the under 60lb variety, but we are negotiable for an older friend.
Laundry is on the second floor, high efficiency and very quiet.
There is a bidet in the master bath (Toto).
At the end of 2014 we completed a large gas fire pit in our back yard which is perfect to sit around and listen to music, roast marshmallows and enjoys evenings all year long.
You have access to everything that we do.
As previously mentioned, a large SUV comes with the property. This can be left at the airport for you but may be tricky if the lot is full and they are working "valet" system. We can discuss, but we are flexible. It's an older Yukon XL but seats 8. I have one booster seat but could borrow more child seats if needed.
We have bikes, scooters, balls.. all sorts of equipment for kids aged 4 to 12. There are a few stores nearby and also a pond for fishing in the summer (but we skate on it in the winter). As expected we have video games, x-box and Wii. We also have several instruments in the basement (drums, bass, guitar, random purcussion).
Of course the house has wireless internet and you will be able to print if you need to.
For the cook, we have KitchenAid stand mixer, and many
Interaction with Guests
We can be as invisible or accessible as you need. Just know that we will be away and not watching our property. I am happy to get food/supplies in the fridge prior to your arrival - you should get here and relax. Our goal is to make your visit more convenient.
This is a sweet family neighborhood.
Most kids on this street have children under 5. There is a smattering of older kids, but they are very helpful with chores and being respectful of neighborhood rules./
We are close to the Wellesley train station. There is ample parking. If you stay with us we will help you figure out your logistcs.
please no smoking inside
pets okay - within reason
