Welcome to Centers and Squares
As a Cambridge real estate agent, the city squares of Cambridge, Somerville and Medford and the town centers of Arlington, Watertown and Belmont, Massachusetts are my home turf. And as a lifelong New Englander who’s lived within twenty miles of Boston most of my life, I can introduce you to other nearby towns as we search for your new home. If you’re planning to sell your home in Cambridge, MA or nearby you’ll find plenty of info about the home selling process here too. Questions? Send me an email or call me at 617-504-1737.
The Newport Road condos are popular with Cambridge real estate buyers. These handsome yellow brick buildings occupy the entire block, lining both sides of the street and fronting Mass Avenue on both sides of Newport Road.
Newport Condo Association
The buildings were constucted in 1916 and have the wonderful detail you would expect in fine buildings of that era. There are 83 units in the association with condos on four floors and some lower level units. The association is professionally managed.
The addresses for the buildings are 1-8 Newport Road and 1775 and 1783 Mass Avenue. It’s a location that can’t be beat – in the Agassiz neighborhood just blocks to Porter Square and a stroll to Harvard Square down a lively, store and restaurant lined stretch of Mass Ave.
