a fully-furnished, sunny, renovated apartment in a quiet, owner-occupied
Victorian house in Harvard Square, the center of Harvard University.
The house is located on a wide, tree-lined street of brick sidewalks
and classic 19th century Victorian houses. Built in 1888, the house
is a cross-gabled Queen Anne with a corner turret and a full-width porch
which is listed in the National Register of Historic Places as Bertha
The apartments are clean, light and functionally modern with simple
traditional character inherent in the building. Each has a private interior
entrance. The apartments are outfitted such that guests are able to
arrive from the airport with only
their luggage and can commence with the purpose of their visit unencumbered
by homemaking tasks and expenditures. Further simplifying household
administration, a single monthly payment covers rent, heat, hot water,
electricity, air conditioning, wireless Internet access, and all furniture and furnishings. The
guest feels at home upon arrival and integrated into life as a resident
Cantabrigian. A guiding principle for the owners is their own threshold
of suitability of the apartments were they visitors themselves.
In Cambridge pedestrian travel and public transport have primacy over
the automobile. With a location so accessible to Harvard, MIT, other
schools, and to transportation, the residences are ideal for visiting
faculty, other academic affiliates and executives.
