About this listing
My home is an original Victorian townhouse in Boston's historical neighborhood. It has 4 floors with guest rooms upstairs.
This room is on the street level, front, and would have been originally the household dining room, now converted for guests.
This is a spacious room (formerly the dining room) of a 19th century row house .The room has a double bed, and a writing table and sofa.....The bath is situated on the same floor, but the bath is shared with one other guest from the floor above, and the bath is accessible only from the abutting kitchen (which is reserved for the owner and not part of the rental unless by special arrangement). The house is an older home and this room in particular retains the character and quality of a traditional antiquated Victorian home, somewhat dark with original wainscoting, chandelier, marble fireplace and other 19th century features.....not for those who have a preference for modern style living.
Guests are provided with entrance key and have no restrictions about coming and going at will, provided they are respectful of privacy and quiet enjoyment for other guests in the house. Kitchen privileges are not included in any of the rentals except by special arrangement with the owner. The house is conveniently located to numerous coffee houses and restaurants, and the owner also finds outside dining a special convenience over cooking in the house.
This neighborhood is the largest historical district for residences in the US. Several square miles of 19th century townhouses registered as documented historical sites. Mine is an original Victorian, restored and retaining its 19th century characteristics. Most other houses have been modernized into expensive condominiums. The neighborhood caters to young people, with high income, and is now considered "trendy" and "chic".... Conveniently located to all of Boston's tourist attractions.
Public transit is exceptionally easy to access. Parking of cars is a problem for on street parking, although public garages are nearby.
