The unbeatable location offers easy walking distance to both Porter and Harvard Squares. Everything you need is only steps away including public transportation, a bike lane along Beacon Street, Star Market, coffee shops, and endless shopping and dining. If you prefer driving to walking or biking, you will appreciate the two underground parking spots in the building’s heated garage.

An inviting, common courtyard welcomes you to the unit’s private entry where modern style awaits in this end-unit with an open concept floor plan, three levels of light-filled living space, and soaring ceilings.

The two-story foyer welcomes you as lovely red oak hardwood floors begin to flow throughout.

Entertain to your heart’s content with an open concept kitchen and dining area featuring granite countertops, stainless steel appliances, a breakfast bar peninsula, cherry cabinetry, gas cooking, pendant lighting, a tile backsplash, crown molding, and recessed lighting.

Relax by the centrally located gas fireplace with a marble surround as large double windows welcome the sunshine. A convenient half bathroom adds the finishing touch on the main level.

Outdoor living is easy with a glass door to a private patio perfect for summertime fun or grilling with friends. There is an additional common patio area to share and a community garden right next door.

Two family bedrooms on the second level offer versatility, both full of natural light with hardwood floors and large double closets. Choose one as a home office or den, if desired. The full bathroom is nicely done in neutral tones with a tiled tub/shower and a pedestal sink.

Retreat to your private, treetop paradise in the third level primary suite with a large walk-in closet, recessed lighting, hardwood floors, and a vaulted ceiling for an added feeling of expansiveness. A sliding glass door is perfect for enjoying a summer breeze or for gazing out at the cityscape beyond. The spa-like master bathroom has a dual sink vanity, skylight, Jacuzzi tub, and a tiled shower.

The heated underground garage offers two parking spots, bike storage, and additional storage as needed. Even the garage ramp is heated to melt snow during storms for easy access in and out.

The building is Energy Star certified due to its carefully selected building materials and design including on-demand hot water, quality insulation, efficient appliances, and insulated doors and windows. What an amazing location set just across the street from an architectural landmark, The American Academy of Arts and Sciences, and just outside the Harvard University campus. Commuters will appreciate the bike lane, the Red Line Station at Porter Square, and easy access to highway routes. It’s the luxurious urban lifestyle you have dreamed of.
