              • Boston has an excellent public transit system (MBTA.com) and we are minutes from subway and bus stops, as well as a reliable taxi dispatch. We recommend parking your car during your stay, as driving and parking in Boston are very difficult and expensive. There is street parking, free and safe, available on Salem Street in front of townhouse on weekends only, first come, first served basis. For weekdays, there is a covered garage available in the neighborhood $25 a day (a good rate for Boston!): http://www.pilgrimparking.com/boston-parking-garages/nautica-garage.htm....moreless

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 1993

                      About the owner: Friendly art historian and designer. Born and raised in Asia and the US, I love international design and traditional folk arts, which is why my spaces are eclectic, decorated in European, Pan-Asian, and Moroccan styles. One of the main reasons I like sharing my spaces is because, in this way, I am also sharing experiences and beauty I have encountered while traveling.

                      Why the Owner Chose Boston:
                      It is a gracious and historically important early American townhouse, with lovely authentic architectural details. The interior spaces have the calm of the Neo-Classical and the intimacy of the Federal style. Boston is a great city for the arts and history, and a pleasure to experience because of its human scale.

                      The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
                      The fireplaces, courtyard garden with fountain, skylights, and hand-hewn beams are rare. Located in Boston's oldest neighborhood. And the art!
