About the owner: I have owned the Cambridge property for around forty years. During that time I have taught at the Harvard Graduate School of Education, run a successful software company, studied and taught yoga around the world and been the proud dad of my two sons. I spend the winter months in Cambridge and the warm summers Maine Lake.
Why the Owner Chose West Cambridge, Cambridge, MA, USA:
I chose this property for it's beauty, it historic location and its propinquity Fresh Pond with its peaceful natural beauty and the culturally rich offerings of Harvard Square.
The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
I love the house's design. I am told that the design was originally created by its first occupant, an emissary from France to the USA. I also delight in its location and its expansive and private back yard and decks.
