Monthly Estimate* How much can I afford?

Feels like Nantucket in the city, yet just .7 mile to Harvard Square, & the Red Line to MIT, MGH, & Boston's legal, financial, & retail districts. Lovely light-filled 1886 gem tucked away on a side street at the heart of the charming & sought-after Old Cambridge neighborhood. Just a block from many recreational opportunities along the Charles River & the Cambridge Skating Club. Open living room with wood-burning fireplace & 2 exposures, open kitchen/dining with 2 exposures & glass doors to private deck & fenced garden. Delightful for entertaining. Good-height ceilings, many windows, & very good cross-ventilation. Handsome wood floors. 19th-c. stained-glass window. 3 bedrooms. Recently upgraded bath. 2 bedrooms have delightful pitched ceilings. Lovely views from house's windows of surrounding neighborhood. Full basement. Newer systems. This is a very special offering.
