It’s tour day! Happily it looks like a great day weather-wise for our tour. Our tours this time of year are a bit of a marathon and this weather suits me much better than the 80+ degrees that the runners faced on Monday.
I’m most excited today to introduce 1-3 Rockingham Place to my coworkers. My colleague, Allan Rikhi, and I have listed this big two-family house in the Cambridgeport neighborhood of Cambridge. It’s a beauty and bound to be popular.
1-3 Rockingham Place has a five-room apartment on the first floor. Upstairs is huge with nine rooms, including three bedrooms. two studies and a spacious family room. The house is filled with light and the upstairs decks have amazing views. Outside there are two separate patio areas, garden beds, fruit trees, mature shrubs, and parking. It’s truly an urban oasis.
This is the neighborhood where my father grew up – in fact the house our family owned for eighty years abuts the yard at 1-3 Rockingham Place. It’s a great place to live in a neighborhood filled with Victorian houses. The Charles River is around the corner, Magazine Beach is nearby, there’s a playground and ball field down the block, you can walk over the bridge to BU as my Dad did, and nowadays Trader Joe’s, Whole Foods, etc. are close by.
Yesterday when I stopped by Rockingham Place I daydreamed about how the neighborhood used to be in the 1930s, 40s and 50s. Growing up, my dad played baseball with the Rockingham Sox. Billy Harris, who used to live in 1-3 Rockingham Place was on the team. My aunt Irene who grew up around the corner on Granite Street remembers visiting the Harris’s house at Christmas time every year for a party.
It’s time for new memories to be made at 1-3 Rockingham Place. Call me if you’d like more information or would like to schedule a time to see this lovely home.
