This distinctive ivy covered building is on a side street  just off Mass Ave.

 

10-14 Remington Street – History

10-14 Remington Street was built in the Tudor Revival style in 1910.  The three story apartment building, named Remington Gables, was designed by architects Newhall and Blevins whose many other Cambridge buildings include 10 Dana Street and 8-10 Avon Street .

The building was featured in the December 1921 issue of The Architectural Record in an article entitled “Tendencies in Apartment House Design: Open Court Types.”  The author noted that the building’s ells in a back to back U/E shape “provide the tenants as much cross draft and exposure as they could expect to secure in a private house.”

Remington Gables is now thirty condos.  Condo features include:

  • One and two bedrooms
  • 479 – 980 sq.ft.
  • Leaded glass windows

  • Some condos have a porch
  • Some top floor units have created a loft in the gable

Steamy Day for an Open House

Hot day for an Arlington open house

Hot day for an Arlington open house

It was a very hot day for an open house.

I was hosting an open house at 166 Sylvia Street in Arlington

It was so hot I brought my own fan.

Despite the heat quite a few buyers stopped by.

One real estate buyer pointed out the indoor / outdoor thermometer.

100 degrees outside.  Ouch!

I’m ready for fall.

 

166 Sylvia Street, Arlington is a sweetheart of a house – cheery and beautifully maintained. It’s a wonderfully quiet spot yet public transportation and Mass Ave are close by.  This Arlington single family is listed for $409,000.  Call me today at 617-504-1737 to take a look!

61 Garfield St Cambridge Condos

61 Garfield Street - Agassiz Neighborhood Condo Building

61 Garfield Street - Agassiz Neighborhood Condo Building

61 Garfield St Cambridge Condos   Cambridge real estate buyers looking for a quintessential Cambridge condo near Harvard and Porter Square will want to look at 61 Garfield Street. 

This is one of Cambridge’s charming and popular “Harlow buildings”, designed by architect Hamilton Harlow in 1917.

 

61 Garfield St Cambridge – Neighborhood Info

Garfield Street is one of my favorite Cambridge streets – lined with large, distinctive Victorians and  just one block long.  It runs from Mass Ave to Oxford Street midway between Porter Square and Harvard Square in the Agassiz neighborhood. It’s such a fun stretch – there are always people strolling down Mass Ave well into the evening since there are a number of restaurants and cafes in addition to interesting shops and boutiques.

You’ll have a variety of transportation options here.  The bus runs down Mass Ave regularly and there are Red Line subway stops in Harvard Square and Porter Square.  For commuting by car there’s easy access to Route 2 or Route 93 in one direction and Storrow and Memorial Drives in the other.  And if you only use a car occasionally – easy to do with such good access to public transportation – there are Zipcar vehicles in the neighborhood.

61 Garfield St Condo Features

  • Four stories, walk-up
  • 17 one and two-bedroom condos
  • 673 to 1,030 sq. ft.
  • Bay windows
  • Maple floors
  • High ceilings
  • Fireplace
  • Basement storage
  • Common laundry
  • Heat and hot water included in the condo fee

61 Garfield St Cambridge Real Estate Sales

The most recent sale in the building was in December 2008 when a top floor two-bedroom condo with two baths sold for $472,983.

If condos are available in the building they’ll appear below.  Click on the small photo for additional photographs and more information.

The wall to wall carpet has been protecting the beautiful oak floors for decades.  Those of you who aren’t fans of wallpaper will be happy to see that there’s little of it here – most of the walls (plaster in excellent condition) are painted.

A playground is around the corner on Hibbert Street, buses to Harvard and Alewife stop two blocks away, and the Minuteman Bike Path is adjacent to Mass Ave at the base of Sylvia Street.  Sutherland Woods conservation area abuts the neighborhood.  Trader Joe’s, Wilson Farms, Arlington Heights and Lexington Center are a short ways away. 166 Sylvia Street is in the Dallin School district and Dallin is approx. six tenths of a mile from the house.

Union Square’s not far away and it’s an easy walk to Harvard Square.

Somerville and Cambridge real estate buyers looking for a spacious townhouse with every modern amenity will find lots to like at 22 Line Street.

22 Line Street Somerville MA Condos Feature:

  • Four level townhouses
  • 2161 – 2961 sq.ft.
