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.

11 Homer Ave Cambridge – Come By On Sunday

First open house at 11 Homer Ave Cambridge

First open house at 11 Homer Ave Cambridge

I’m holding the first open house at 11 Homer Ave in Cambridge MA tomorrow from 1:30 to 2:30.  I hope you can stop by!

11 Homer Ave just came on the market for $419,000. It’s an unusual opportunity to buy a single family at this price point in the Cambridge MA 02138 zip code.  It’s tough to get a two-bedroom condo with parking for much less than $400,000 so this house offers the chance to have your own home at a condo price – and to add value with renovations and updates.

The house has been well loved by one family for decades.  I’ve always thought that houses have vibes and this is a happy house.  The entry stairhall is gracious and the big windows let in lots of light.  You’ll probably spend a lot of time in the large backyard once the snow melts.

New buyers will want to do updates but it would be possible – if you couldn’t afford to do it all at once – to live in the house and do upgrades over time as you can afford them.

The kitchen will likely be a favorite gathering spot. It’s good-sized with room for a big table, lots of cabinets, and plenty of counter space.  There’s a dishwasher and a gas stove. Remove some wallpaper and paint the cabinets, maybe put on some new hardware – you could get more good years out of the kitchen before you did major renovations.

There’s a large bath on the first floor.  Upstairs, the new owners may opt to turn one of the four bedrooms into a second bath.

The cellar has good ceiling height, great storage, a place for a workbench, laundry hookups, and a door to the backyard. There’s a brick and concrete block garage that will fit a compact car plus parking for another car in the driveway.

Mount Auburn Cemetery with its meandering landscaped paths, bird watching opportunities, and regular tours and lectures is across the street.  Fresh Pond Reservation – a favorite destination for walkers, runners and dog owners – is down the block. In addition to the two mile path around the pond there’s also a golf course and playground.  Want to vary your jogging route? – the Charles River isn’t far.  A branch of the Cambridge Public Library is around the corner on Aberdeen Avenue.

The bus on Mount Auburn stops at Homer Ave – you’ll be in Harvard Square in minutes.  In addition to the bus – it’s actually the electric track-less trolley – there’s easy access to commuting routes from 11 Homer Avenue.  You can quickly get to Memorial Drive, Storrow Drive, and routes 2, 3, 93, 95, and 128.

11 Homer Avenue Cambridge MA 02138 will be open tomorrow, Sunday, February 20, 2011 from 1:30 to 2:30.  If you can’t come by call Liz Bolton – that’s me! – at 617-504-1737 to schedule an appointment to see the house.
