Boston condo description
Thanks for your interest!
Regrettably, I am not accepting any bookings at this time. I'm sorry I can't accommodate you. If you're heading to Paris, please use the link to check out my apartment there.
Great location! Walk to Tufts. Perfect for Harvard, MIT and exploring Boston. No need for a car; the "T" is steps away. ASK ME FOR REVIEWS!
Space and light. Gleaming floorboards, high ceilings, and 100-year-old exposed columns and beams co-exist with crisp granite, chrome, and stainless steel. It’s an industrial look – but warm, welcoming, comfortable, and luxurious.
The loft is a grand 2600 square-foot luxury loft that occupies two levels in a former 19th-century pillow factory.
The sun-drenched space is comprised of an upper level furnished with an eclectic mix of modern classics and antiques. On this floor are the expansive living, dining, and kitchen areas; enclosed master bedroom (king-sized bed); full bathroom; and laundry closet with washer and dryer. A unique custom-designed work station provides ample space for laptops and papers.
A broad, open stairway descends to the Zen-like lower level. This peaceful sanctuary contains a king-sized platform bed; sitting and work areas, closets, and a knockout bathroom with black granite tiles and a glass-enclosed shower. It’s really like a loft within a loft.
Between the two king-sized beds and a queen-sized Italian leather sleeper sofa, the apartment can sleep six comfortably. Whisper-quiet central air-conditioning keeps you cool all summer long. And thousands of books and CDs are available for your enjoyment for those quiet evenings at home.
A secluded entry porch has a café table and chairs for two. The private outdoor area is another great spot for morning coffee or afternoon sunning.
The loft has a large washer and dryer and a fully-equipped kitchen with upscale appliances and everything you need for gourmet cooking, at-home dining and entertaining.
All lofts are strictly non-smoking.
A private, reserved, off-street parking spot just steps from the entrance is included. A second spot is negotiable.
The loft is just over the Cambridge line in Somerville, two short blocks from the Davis Square Redline “T” stop. The cognoscenti know Davis Square as one of the most vibrant, desirable, and well-located of Boston’s many fabled squares and neighborhoods — a prime destination for strolling, shopping, dining, art and cultural events. In fact, Utne Reader called Davis Square one of the 15 “hippest places in North America.”
You can walk to Tufts and Harvard from the loft. Using the “T,” a pleasant four-minute stroll from the loft, you can be in Harvard Square in 5 minutes (2 stops), MIT in 8-10 minutes (4 stops), and in the heart of downtown/tourist Boston in 12-15 minutes (6 stops).
Even though the loft is mere steps to the myriad shops, cafes and restaurants of Davis Square, it is very quiet – tucked away from the hustle and bustle on a residential side street.
The loft is two blocks from the colorful neighborhood center. Among many other stores you’ll find owner-operated bakeries and small groceries; a wine shop, ice-cream parlor, butcher and 24-hour convenience market; funky retail boutiques; drug stores, post office, copy shops, banks; personal care and professional services; health and fitness providers – over 300 shops and businesses.
With over half a dozen cafes, Davis Square is prime people-watching territory. Home to academics, artists, students, musicians, and families that have lived for generations in the same house, Davis Square attracts a culturally rich and diverse population. The Somerville Theater, listed on the National Register of Historic Places, is known citywide as a venue for independent and mainstream films, and cutting-edge concerts. Across the street, Johnny D’s serves up great food along with nationally known jazz, Cajun and blues bands. Davis Square hosts the weekly Somerville Farmer’s Market and many ongoing street fairs and arts festivals.
Choices for dining out are numerous and intriguing. Whether you’re hankering for Asian or American, Indian or Italian, Mexican or Mediterranean, Davis Square will please every taste with award-winning restaurants.
Please contact me for an extensive collection of guest comments and reviews that will be helpful in giving you a feel for the loft, the neighborhood, and my attentiveness, as the owner, to my guests' comfort and enjoyment.

Wonderul Loft & Even Better Owner to Work With!
I almost hate to write this review, because I would prefer to keep this place all to ourselves for future use! Such a modern feel, yet has some of those old charms that it just rounds out this amazing place. The house is so close to town & the T that you almost don't need a car. The owner is so helpful in not only giving you wonderful writtten instructions/recommendations/pointers, but you could also reach him via email to ask about anything that comes up. This was our first stay, but definitely not our last. We will be trying to make this a yearly retreat! Thank you!
