Almost everyone who knows me knows what I’ve been doing with a lot of my time for the last few months, and that is getting “The Condo” ready to sell. The time is finally here, it is on the market, and the public open houses are this weekend! Here is the page on this site that I’ve been updating as things progressed, and here is the official listing posted by our agents Peter Cote and Aubree Webb on Caldwell Banker’s site.
Here’s a longer and slightly different description that I put together…
Check out this rare, spacious three bedroom Cambridge condo on tree-lined Willow Street in the conveniently located Wellington-Harrington neighborhood between Inman and Kendall Squares. This 1250 square foot unit is on the top floor and features large windows with Southwest exposure that provide beautiful sun light all day long as well as excellent views of the MIT/Kendall Square area and Boston skyline. It has 9′ high ceilings, bay windows, natural wood floors and recently updated electrical throughout. There is a spacious living room, dining room and master bedroom plus two smaller bedrooms. The large eat-in kitchen has a brand new refrigerator and dishwasher, and it is adjoined to a laundry room with washer and dryer. It also has a specially lit bathroom and private 20′ x 8′ deck with fantastic sunset views. There is also 200 square feet of additional storage space beyond the listed 1250 square feet in the form of an 8′ x 6′ room off of the deck plus another large private, deeded 16′ x 10′ room in the basement.
There is plentiful, always available on-street parking by city permit, and it is within a block or two of Cambridge’s protected bike lanes in all directions. It is also walking distance to the Kendall Square Red Line and Lechmere Green Line MBTA stations, as well as only a five minute walk to the proposed new Union Square Station on the Green Line Extension. You will also be within walking distance of the scores of excellent restaurants and cafes in Inman and Kendall Squares as well as the Kendall Cinema at One Kendall (Kendall Cinema 0.3 mi Tech Sq 0.5 mi. Kendall T 0.7 mi. Central T 0.9 mi. Lechmere T 1.0 mi. Inman Sq 0.5 mi. Harvard 1.4 mi. MIT 0.7 mi.).
This home is kid and pet friendly, and it is right across the street from Jeffrey John Curley Park as well as just steps from Donnelly Field and the new King Open and Cambridge Street Upper Schools & Community Complex Project. It is perfect for a young couple, small family, or as an investment property.
Finally, here is a gallery of pictures that I’ve taken.
