Boston condo description

ONE WEEK MINIMUM FOR 2015 MARATHON. Our 2 bedroom, completely renovated garden level condo has a large, comfortable living area open to the kitchen. The fully outfitted kitchen has granite counters, a gas stove and washer/dryer. Free wifi-- please note there is NO TV.
The master bedroom has a queen sized captains bed with drawers underneath and a full closet. The guest bedroom has a trundle which opens to a queen, a desk, and a walk in closet. Hardwood floors throughout, super clean. FOUR PERSON MAXIMUM capacity.
The brownstone is well-kept and on a quiet block. The Charles River is a block away, with bike and walking paths, sailing or a gazebo boat ride. Sunsets over Cambridge on the other side of the river are not to be missed. In summer enjoy free concerts at the famous Hatch Shell. World-class shopping and dining are a few blocks as well. Stroll to the Museum of Fine Arts or Gardner Museum or go the opposite way to the nearby Public Gardens and the Boston Common. The Hynes Convention Center is a 10 minute walk.
Fantastic location--walk to everything or hop on the subway (the T) a few blocks away and the entire city, plus Cambridge is there for you. Colleges, the State House, the Freedom Trail, theater, museums, restaurants, historic sites, window or real shopping abound. Many tour companies, including the Duck Boats, can be boarded a few blocks away. Take in a Red Sox game or the Symphony and stroll home under the stars!
PARKING is available at a garage 5 blocks away; street parking limited. YOU DO NOT NEED A CAR TO SEE BOSTON/CAMBRIDGE from here; subway 4 blocks for wherever you do not want to walk.

              Location

              Car: Not Necessary

              Walk to the beautiful Public Gardens, visit the high end designer shops and restaurants a few blocks away; antique shops, colleges, museums all a walk or short subway ride away. Take a sail or a gazebo ride down the Charles River with sunsets over Cambridge on the other side. Enjoy the best Boston has to offer like the locals, without a car and living in a newly furnished brownstone in the most gorgeous neighborhood. Very safe and quiet location.

               

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2011

              About the owner: We are seasoned travelers who prefer to rent or swap a place to a hotel for a more authentic and comfortable stay. This way we hit the local shops, eat out only when we want and have more time to sight see and immerse ourself in a neighborhood.

              Why the Owner Chose Boston:
              We love the Back Bay and wanted a place in the city. We use the place ourselves so it is not a generic rental and is well kept.

              The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
              Running along the Charles; walking to the museums; a show at the Huntington Theater; drinks and tapas al fresco on Newbury or Boylston street; morning coffee while walking through the Public Gardens; bringing a picnic to a shady spot on the Esplanade; discovering new crooked side streets on Beacon Hill and gawking at the houses there.
