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.

Millbrook Condos – 993-995 Mass Ave Arlington

The Millbrook Condos at 993-995 Mass Ave. in Arlington MA offer 99 condominiums in two buildings.  The complex was built in the early 1970s and gets its name from the mill brook that runs behind the buildings.

I’ll never forget my first visit to 993 Massachusetts Ave.  It was early spring, and even though the large sliding door overlooking the brook was closed, the sound of rushing water was mesmerizing.  Brought me right back to nights we spent camping by a stream when I was growing up.

The condominiums in the 993 building are often described as “lofts”.  That confused me since the building doesn’t look a loft building. Turns out “loft” refers to the open upper level bedroom.

When you walk into a 1st or 2nd floor condo here you’ll walk past a half bath and a galley kitchen into a two-story living /dining room with sliders one above the other.  An open staircase brings you up to a loft-style bedroom with a full-bath and generous closet.

It’s a dramatic space and my thought – after I soaked in the sounds of the brook – was that you could build a really tall bookcase wall here.  It’s a smart setup with the lav downstairs for guests and a private full bath tucked away upstairs.

Most one-bedrooms are about 600 sq.ft. – a bit under or a bit over. There are some two-bedroom units ranging in size from about 800 to 1000 sq.ft. The fourteen units on the third floor are laid out on one level.  There are 69 condos in the building which has an elevator, laundry facilities, and storage cubbies.

Some of the condos in the building are in original condition while others have been smartly updated.
