About John J. GallagherJr.

My family lived blocks from the property when I was born. I grew up in the Boston area and went to schools here. This property has been in my family for over 100 years and recently I completely renovated the house. When we are not traveling we live here and love the home and the location.

John J. GallagherJr. purchased this house in 2007

Why John J. GallagherJr. chose Area IV

The entire Boston area has so much to offer, including sightseeing, sports, beaches, boating, museums, restaurants, bars and fabulous universities. Our home is in the middle of it all. Everything is new: appliances, windows, floors, baths, tankless hot water heater. We have it all!

What makes this house unique

We designed this house with the idea of a large family or several couples being able to stay here comfortably. Everyone has their space. Once you open the front door (after parking your car in the driveway!) you immediately feel at home. Visting children at school? Coming for a big game? Have a family wedding? Need a backyard space? Dishes, pots and pans and lovely appliances are all here for your use too. But the location is the best part of this lovely home. Be one of the first to list with us.

Thoroughly enjoyed out stay.

  • 5 of 5

We had 3 couples staying in Cambridge to see Boston for the first time. Your place was very comfortable. Thank you for providing so many amenities. Never had that before. We did not eat much at the house because the food out in Boston was so great, so it was nice not to have to do a heavy duty grocery store trip. We never wished we had our won car because the public transportation in Boston is so great, once we figured it out! I would return to Boston in a minute and would recommend the 15 Union Street house.

Enjoyed our stay

  • 5 of 5

We used this house as a base for exploration for a family of 5 on vacation + college tours. We used all three bedrooms plus the fold-out sofabed. Interior of house was functional and comfortable. We had a rental car so having parking was very nice. Location is relatively quiet. 5-10 minute walk gets you to shops and central subway station.

Great house, very spacious!

  • 5 of 5

We came as a group of graduate students for an event at MIT, and this house was a wonderful, homey spot for us. The house is room, clean and quiet. John was kind enough to help us out when we accidentally locked ourselves out, too. Overall the house was a great find.
