About Susan Roberts
I practice law in the Boston area, serving small business clients as their real estate and general counsel. In addition to serving on several nonprofit education and library boards, I'm active in my town's governance and serve on town committees involving real estate development. I love music and am a huge Boston sports fan. Between work, spending time with my kids, and going out with friends, I'm pretty busy, and love being so.
Susan Roberts purchased this House in 2007
Why Susan Roberts chose North Brookline
This home has been in our family for more than 60 years. It is large and lovely, in a special area so close to Boston, yet in a neighborhood all its own. Coolidge Corner is among the most desirable places in all of Massachusetts to live in, and our house is smack... dab, right there. The location can't be beat.
What makes this House unique
Beside our home's terrific location, the house features a large and comfortable kitchen with TV, 3 large bedrooms (one of which has the bed in the adjoining sunporch), an art deco bathroom, and a TV viewing foyer. It is the top floor unit of a two-family condominium, and is our permanent home. Other family lives in the first floor unit below. We are renting our unit out during the times that we'll be away.

Beautiful, well located apartment
We had a great stay.
The location is fantastic -- a block and a half from Coolidge Corner (where there is a T line, restaurants, movie theater, groceries, etc) but on a quiet side street so noise is minimal and kids can walk around safely. There are several parks nearby -- the nearest is about two blocks away (though kids need to cross a Pleasant St, which is modestly busy, to get there). Easy walking / biking / public transit to tons of stuff (BU, Kenmore square, fenway park, longwood area, MFA, ...).
The apartment is big -- 3 nice bedrooms, a comfortable kitchen with its own table, a big dining room, living room and a separate TV/sitting area. It is nicely furnished with some especially beautiful wood pieces in the living room, dining room and master. It's a second-floor apartment with windows on all four sides of the building, so it gets tons of light all day. It has parking, which is hard to come by in Brookline.
The apartment was very clean. The linens and towels were nice -- definitely above hotel-grade. The kitchen was fully equipped.
- The laundry is a bit hard to use (down a narrow staircase in an unfinished basement).
- For longer term stays, there is not enough available storage. The owner cleared out a fair amount of space for us (some hanging space in two closets, some drawers in a dresser, stands for suitcases). This would have been plenty had we been there for only a few days, but we were there for several weeks and found ourselves constantly tiptoeing around the owner's personal belongings. This probably will not be an issue for other guests, since most people will probably stay for less time. Also, we were the first renters -- the owner will probably iron out the kinks over time.
The owner was very responded quickly and helpfully to all our questions.
Overall, a great stay.

Wonderful Stay! Location Could not have been better!
My 3 & 5 year olds instantly fell in love with this "pink house". We loved how spacious it was and its central location. Just 2 blocks from coffee shops, restaurants, pharmacy, you name it. Centrally located for public transportation, it did the trick.
The unit was spacious and we appreciated the eat in kitchen along with the roomy dining room. The bedrooms came with A/C window units (which we used), and all rooms had overhead fans. Parking on site also made this location perfect for our needs.
Susan was a pleasure to work with. Instructions were easy, and everything was explained well.
thanks for a great stay!
