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.

Cambridge Real Estate – Cambridge Condos With Swimming Pools

swimmerAs a real estate agent in Cambridge I get to do a lot of dreaming.  “Oh, if I only lived here…”,  “Ooh – can you imagine coming home to this?” or “If I lived here I’d really get some exercise!”

My idea of heaven would be an indoor pool that I didn’t have to care for myself.  I love to swim but the outdoor swimming season in New England is not that long.  An indoor pool seems ideal – and all the better is somebody else is responsible  for the day to day upkeep.  If you’d rather get a tan and meet your neighbors while lounging poolside, a Cambridge condo with an outdoor pool may fit the bill.

Cambridge real estate buyers who  long to take a dip after work have a number of options:

Cambridge Condos With Indoor Pools

Cambridge real estate buyers who want the convenience of an indoor pool – and the possibility of giving up that gym membership – have options in several Cambridge condo developments. 

The Esplanade at 75-83 Cambridge Parkway, near the Cambridge Galleria and Boston and overlooking the Charles River, has a beautiful lap pool and an exercise room.  The Esplanade is a luxury building, with concierge, garage parking, and many units with amazing river views.
