Gorgeous high-ceilinged double parlor Victorian apartment in stately 1905 owner-occupied two-family on Spring Hill. Beautiful original detail preserved but with important updates such as a brand new heating system and plenty of outlets.
I will do short term but would be happy too to have a three or six month tenant - ask me for details, I'm flexible but prefer month-plus stays. The bedrooms will have a queen and a full bed respectively and there will be a single sized pullout in the larger bedroom plus an available air mattress for additional guests in the LR. *All guests must be listed at time of booking.* Any additional guests by express approval of owner only; may be subject to additional guest fee.
Come see this elegant home situated walking distance between three thriving squares: Davis/Porter/Union all just under a mile away.
Three Little Figs for your cappuccino and Highland Kitchen for your ale and trout and kale are a five-minute stroll, as is Once/Cuisine en Locale for great live shows, and the Somerville winter farmer's market is but a block away--who needs Whole Foods! But if you do there is a new one on Beacon just five minutes drive. Or head down to Davis for great cinema, restaurants, bars, brunch places etc.
Enjoy the sun on the front porch every morning and the shady little backyard patio all summer.
