Another Boston area designer landscaped a magical green garden in spring 2013, completing the creation of what visitors have called 'a little piece of heaven' in the middle of the city.
Parking options include metered parking, local garages, or, with a deposit, a 3-day temporary guest parking permit for on-street resident parking. Truly, a car is really unnecessary.
The owners, Bill and Carolyn, paid a lot of attention to detail as they created a modern oasis in the middle of bustling Central Square, Cambridge. The apartment is located on the first floor of their newly renovated home.
Just a block away from top-rated restaurants, including Rendezvous, Craigie on Main, Salts, Chi Chi's and Central Kitchen. Also, a block away is the Central Square Theater, home to The Underground Railway Theater and The Nora Theatre Company. The Middle East is renowned for their live music entertainment.
3 grocery stores within a couple of blocks. And, of course, there are the two world-class universities - MIT and Harvard - both within walking distance or one short subway stop away.
My name is Carolyn and my husband, Bill, and I will be here to greet you and give you the keys to the apartment when you arrive. Starting in 2010, we spent 3 years working with an architect, lighting designer, contractor and landscape designer to re-envision our home and to create an apartment on our first floor. Our home, our apartment and the garden have turned out to be delightful retreats in the middle of a bustling city environment. One of the many joys of this location is that we can walk to M.I.T. where we both work in the IT department.
Bill has lived in this home since he was a student at MIT. Several years later, I joined him and together we purchased it in 1984, the year our son was born. We love Central Square for it's rich weave of diversity and culture, restaurants and nightlife, education and the creative and whimsical local merchants!
