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.
In my book, the star of our weekly tour of new Cambridge and Somerville real estate listings this week was 369 Franklin Street, a condo near Central Square new to the market at $459,000.
Now, granted, I’m biased since this is my new listing – but the condo is a standout. It’s in a luxury building built in 2003 and has two bedrooms and two full baths, including a master bath. The condo is bright and sunny with an open layout and a gorgeous kitchen. Building amenities include an elevator, garage parking, a big backyard with patio for grilling, and an exercise room with city skyline views.
Franklin Street is a tree-lined side street that parallels Mass Ave. The Red Line T station and Central Square are just blocks away. Harvard Square, MIT and Boston’s Back Bay are close by.
I’ll be hosting an open house at 369 Franklin Street on Sunday, June 5, 2011 from 1 – 2 pm.
Our Wednesday tour had something for buyers in all price ranges. We toured properties ranging from an East Cambridge one-bedroom listed for $249,900 to a single family near Brattle Street listed for $3,500,000.
The East Cambridge one-bedroom condo was at 180 Third Street, Cambridge. It was bright and cheery and is convenient to both the Red and Green Lines. 180 3rd Street is listed at $249,900.
On the other end of town, in Porter Square, we toured a townhouse at 12 Mount Vernon Street in Cambridge on Avon Hill in Porter Square. The townhouse has three bedrooms, two baths, garage parking, and two decks. It’s new to the market at $875,000.
Single family home buyers will want to check out 29 Belmont Street in Somerville. This house on Spring Hill, not far from Porter Square, is very charming. It was a long tour and we enjoyed a break sitting in the inviting living room before continuing on our tour. The house is sure to be popular at $499,000.
13 Kennedy Road in Cambridgeis tucked away off Brattle Street. The many large windows in this modern house, designed by architect James Freeman in 1963, take full advantage of the large private lot. Surrounded by so much greenery it’s hard to imagine you’re so close to Harvard Square. This very special house is listed for $3,500,000.
