Imagine living in the heart of city life close to public transportation, Harvard, MIT, and Boston College, Boston University, shopping, and dining. Commuters will love easy access to the Mass Pike, Storrow Drive, and Memorial Drive.

The immaculate unit is full of thoughtfully designed updates and modern style with cherry wood floors, high ceilings, granite counters, and a neutral color palette. The freshly painted interior welcomes you with an open concept layout. Sunlight streams through the large bay of windows in the dining area with a seamless transition to the open concept living room. A decorative fireplace offers a visual centerpiece with its dramatic floor to ceiling brick façade.

The open concept kitchen is inviting, offering an efficient space for creating favorite recipes with stainless-steel appliances, a granite countertop, custom cabinetry, a new dishwasher, a built-in microwave, and recessed lighting.

The main level continues with two bedrooms and a bathroom. Both bedrooms have the same cherry wood floors, ceiling fans, and ample closets for storage. One of the bedrooms has an exposed brick accent wall for a chic, industrial feel. The bathroom is tastefully done in neutral tones with a granite topped vanity, ceramic tile flooring, and a tiled tub with shower.

More living space awaits on the finished lower level offering lots of versatility to use as a spacious family room, recreation room, home gym, or whatever you desire. The area is bright and cheerful with a bank of high windows and recessed lighting. A bonus room on the lower level works well as a private office to work or study comfortably from home and has a large double closet for additional storage. Enjoy summertime entertainment or relaxation on the covered patio area. In-unit laundry and off-street parking means added convenience.

What a wonderful opportunity to invest or enjoy a carefree lifestyle in a prime location with so many amenities right outside your door and an easy commute to downtown Boston. As an added bonus, 189 Cambridge Street is part of Harvard’s Allston campus and eligible for the school’s activities and resources. The area also qualifies for enrollment at Boston Latin School.
