SUN-FILLED DREAM HOME

Cambridge Townhome Rental Photos and Description

Beautiful architect-designed home in desirable neighborhood

Make yourself at home on Chestnut Street. We are now booking for Labor Day and beyond! Flooded with light, this architect-designed fully furnished 2,600-square foot town home offers an open floor plan with 8 beautiful room areas; southern exposures; a single-home feel; 3 potential bedrooms (currently furnished as 2 bedrooms, 1 study and 1 playroom); 2.5 architect-designed bathrooms with custom marble and travertine; stunning master bedroom suite that occupies entire third floor and includes Bain Ultra air tub, 16' cathedral ceilings and private deck; sliders to a large back deck on the first floor and additional porch on the second floor; white picket fence and safety gate; 20-minute walk to Harvard Square; 5-minute walk to the Charles River; 10-minute walk to grocery stores, pharmacy and restaurants; 10-minute walk to Central Square and Red Line subway stop; tree-lined streets in quiet, desirable neighborhood; laundry; 2-zone central ac; cable and internet access; grand first floor ideal for family interaction and entertaining; stainless steel appliances in kitchen; 1 off-street (driveway) parking with brick pavers and 1 on-street parking visitor's permit; and Queen Anne premium wood windows, crown mouldings and wainscoting.

Your comfort and pleasure are important to us. We can compile a list of attractions if you let us know why you are visiting. (Are you dropping off your child at Harvard? Check out the molten chocolate cake and creme brulee at Finale in Harvard Square! Do you have young children? A new Boston-area LEGOland just opened this spring! Are you interested in glass-blowing? The glass-blown flower exhibit at the Harvard Museum of Natural History will glass-blow your mind!) We will greet you at noon on check-in day to hand off the keys, answer questions, and be sure you have everything you need. We are within walking distance of two grocery stores, but if you want to send a grocery list in advance, we'll stock the fridge for your first night, save receipts, and you can reimburse us for the food. If you are treating your spouse to a wedding anniversary trip, we can set up the master bedroom suite with candles, rose petals--and champagne! If you are celebrating your child's birthday, we can help arrange decorations and a cake. Please just let us know how we can make your trip a special one.

RATE UPDATE: We are now booking for New England foliage visits and most autumn holiday weekends, including Thanksgiving. Please note that some holidays have slightly higher booking rates. We are also booking for Patriot's Day Weekend, which is the same as the Boston Marathon Weekend. We're also booking for Harvard/MIT Commencement weeks. Thank you for your interest!

About Linda Garmon

I'm a documentary filmmaker.

Linda Garmon purchased this townhome in 2009

Why Linda Garmon chose Cambridge

This home has a beautiful vibe. Enjoy the beauty during special times of year: First, the property is within walking distance of both Harvard University and MIT, so book it for your child's graduation. Running in the Boston Marathon? You'll see the tulips poking out through our white picket fence. Visiting historic Boston and the nearby beaches during the summer? We have central air conditioning--and concerts at the Hatch Shell.

Want to holiday in a quaint part of the world? Our home is cozy and inviting and filled with light even during the winter months.

What makes this townhome unique

The home is spacious, sunny, pleasant, nicely decorated, and in a wonderful location. It is within walking distance of both Harvard University and MIT, if you are attending a relative's graduation!

Charming, Excellent Location, Clean & Well-Furnished
  • 5 of 5
My family of five were very comfortable in this sunny, charming and meticulously maintained home. The home was spotlessly clean and lovingly decorated with furnishings that were in excellent condition. There is a beautiful garden surrounding the home. The location is ideal - in a quiet and safe residential area, close to Harvard, MIT, Whole Foods, lots of restaurants and a quick & easy drive into Boston to see the Aquarium, Museums, Newbury Street shopping and the airport. The owner, Linda, had thoughtfully stocked all the essentials needed for our stay and even offered to bring more, if we ran out during our 8 day visit. She was very gracious and easy to get a hold of for questions and offered useful tourist information. It was pleasure to stay in such a cheerful, very clean (even in all the nooks & crannies) and completely renovated home. We have stayed in numerous VRBO rentals all across the country and this is one of the best! We look forward to staying here again on our next visit!

Home is well located, very comfortable and very clean. My wife and I spent a week there and will definitely be back again next year. The owner is extremely helpful and courteous. An excellent property that is even better than the pictures suggest.
