About the Property

Studio Apartment, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)

A most elegant condominium awaits you on the first floor of this lovely 1860 Victorian home close to Harvard Square. The 30' living/bedroom has restored period moldings, hardwood floors, large windows, a large sisal woven area rug, and a decorative fireplace. The front of the room serves as a sitting area, with a sleep sofa, while the rear has a handsome 19th Century four-poster queen-sized bed. (The bed is slightly shorter than a standard queen.) There is a gleaming white tiled bath, a full separate kitchen, a pleasant deck off the kitchen with full morning sun and a lovely garden on the side of the house. As one of the finest Cambridge vacation rentals, this unit includes cable television, a stereo system with CD and cassette player, high speed Internet, a landline telephone with an answering machine and free laundry in the basement. In the friendly neighborhood of Inman Square, on beautiful Maple Avenue with its large trees and homes, you are near nationally-recognized restaurants, an easy 12-minute walk from Central Square and less than a 15-minute walk from Harvard Square.

Rents monthly in the winter.
