About The Owner

I am an artist, cook, gardener, mom and teacher. I love to bike around Fresh Pond, kayak on the Charles River, watch my children's sports games, head to Rhode Island (my hometown ) for the beach. I love the city and all it has to offer.

The Owner purchased this apartment in 1993

Why The Owner chose Strawberry Hill

Strawberry Hill neighborhood is the gem of Cambridge. This friendly neighborhood offers close proximity to the city with a nature setting. Its close proximity to Fresh Pond is such pleasure. I love being near the water. You can bike, jog, walk, bird watch, play golf, tennis or basketball. There is a play ground and a baseball/softball & soccer field. The community is diverse and friendly. The local businesses reflect that diversity. The Charles River is just down the street and it has many more offerings. Kayaking, Sailing, rowing, fishing, picnics, water park and outdoor Theatre. You can walk to the Harvard Stadium, ice rink and ball park. You can see the regatta. On sundays, Memorial Drive is closed to car traffic and you can enjoy the serenity.
