The Space

Beautifully renovated apartment in a Victorian mansion in quiet neighborhood, but close to Union Square in Somerville, Harvard Square in Cambridge and just a few minutes outside Boston.

This is the place to come to to relax and enjoy in a spacious oasis in a central location.

Union Square with lots of nice restaurants, bars and a farmer's market is just a few minutes down the hill. Davis Square and Cambridge Square are also in the vicinity, and to downtown Boston it's just a short drive by car away.

Or use the public transport, just 5 min to Highland Ave bus station which goes to either “T” train stations Davis Square or Sullivan Square.

The apartment has 2 bedrooms both queen beds.
One and a half baths.
Gleaming hardwood floors throughout the entire apartment. Spacious living/dining area with oversize windows overlooking the landscaped yard and other Victorians on this tree lined. Breezy hilltop oasis. Newly outfitted kitchen spills onto a sunlit deck to enjoy a good morning cup of coffee before you head out for your day.
Snuggle up in the rear deck and feel like you are in a tree house. Resting here or reading a book, you may not feel like leaving.

Washer and Dryer located in the large main bath along with a full sized tub/shower. Half bath off hall .

There are many major super markets one within walking distance.
Just down the hill from the house is "Union Square" with great bars, stores and restaurants including The Independent, Journeyman, Back Bar, Reliable Market (an Asian market), Market Basket, Block 11 Cafe, Sherman Market (locally sourced groceries) and the Saturday Union Sq. Farmers Market.

1.5 miles to Harvard/Cambridge
3.2 miles to Downtown Boston

Guest Access

You will have the entire 2nd floor of this Victorian Mansion. A deck for dining alfresco ,morning coffee or grilling dinner on the Weber BBQ. There is also a full sized washer and drier in the main bath with full sized tub. You will need to bring your own detergent.

Interaction with Guests

There is a lockbox for key retrieval so there can be no interaction if desired. Or you may run into me around the grounds I live on the first floor but have a separate entrance. Nearby for any assistance.

The Neighborhood

Our neighborhood has become hip: several great restaurants, including Colombian, Peruvian, Indian, German, Korean, an Irish bar and two coffee shops. Capone's home made pasta shop with olives, deserts and cheese is unbeatable. Our Union Square Saturday morning farmer's market from Memorial day to Thanksgiving is the best in Boston (commonly known!).

Getting Around

Buses go to red and green subway lines to major shopping areas and Harvard Square a mile away.

Other Things to Note

Notice to allergy sufferers - Since my dog is with me most of the time there may be a trace of him in the apartment though he wouldn't of been physically in the apartment.
