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.

276 Harvard Street, Cambridge – The Elmhurst

The Elmhurst and The Kenwood - 276 Harvard St - 40 Inman St, Cambridge MA

276 Harvard Street, Cambridge MA – The Elmhurst   This classic early 1900s brick building is at the corner of Harvard and Inman Streets.  Built as The Elmhurst and The Kenwood Apartments, today there are 16 condos in the building which bears two addresses – 276 Harvard Street and 40 Inman Street.

The building was designed by Cambridge architect George H. Tyler in 1904.  The interior detail is exceptional.  Outside you’ll find a wonderful large yard complete with flowering trees and a grilling and picnic area. 

Rumor has it that the building can be seen in Love Story as home to Ali McGraw’s apartment. I’ve yet to revisit the movie since I heard that but it’s on my to-do list.
