About John J. GallagherJr.

My family lived blocks from the property when I was born. I grew up in the Boston area and went to schools here. This property has been in my family for over 100 years and recently I completely renovated the house. When we are not traveling we live here and love the home and the location.

John J. GallagherJr. purchased this House in 2007

Why John J. GallagherJr. chose Wellington-Harrington

The entire Boston area has so much to offer, including sightseeing, sports, beaches, boating, museums, restaurants, bars and fabulous universities. Our home is in the middle of it all. Everything is new: appliances, windows, floors, baths, tankless hot water heater. We have it all!

What makes this House unique

We designed this house with the idea of a large family or several couples being able to stay here comfortably. Everyone has their space. Once you open the front door (after parking your car in the driveway!) you immediately feel at home. Visting children at school? Coming for a big game? Have a family wedding? Need a backyard space? Dishes, pots and pans and lovely appliances are all here for your use too. But the location is the best part of this lovely home. Be one of the first to list with us.

                                                          Thoroughly enjoyed out stay.

                                                          Donna P.

                                                          We had 3 couples staying in Cambridge to see Boston for the first time. Your place was very comfortable. Thank you for providing so many amenities. Never had that before. We did not eat much at the house because the food out in Boston was so great, so it was nice not to have to do a heavy duty grocery store trip. We never wished we had our won car because the public transportation in Boston is so great, once we figured it out! I would return to Boston in a minute and would recommend the 15 Union Street house.

                                                          Owner's Response:

                                                          Thank you for your nice words. We truly want people to be comfortable in our home and it sounds like you all had a great time. Come back again! John and Rosie

                                                          great place to stay

                                                          Linda P.

                                                          The house was perfect for us-4 friends getting together for the weekend. Location was great. With 4 women, it was great having 3 bathrooms! House was well-maintained and owners were responsive and flexible.

                                                          Great place to stay!

                                                          Amanda s.

                                                          This house was just what we needed for our family vacation!

                                                          Very good

                                                          Timothy G.

                                                          Great location, roomy house, thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

                                                          Disappointingly dirty and noisy

                                                          Kathryn L.

                                                          We were looking forward to spending almost 2 weeks in this home with our extended family for our son's wedding. However when we arrived after a long day of driving we found the beds unmade, used sheets on the beds, dirty laundry in the upstairs hall, scummy bathrooms and a dirty kitchen. Apparently the owner did not accurately communicate our arrival date to the lovely woman who cleans for him. She came over at 9:30 at night and helped us: brought clean linens for the beds and wiped down the bathrooms, then came back the next day to complete the cleaning of the house. The shower caddy in one of the bathroom is rusty and fell down on one of our family members. The sinks in 2 of the bathrooms do not drain well. Additionally, the attached unit next door is undergoing renovations so there is hammering and other construction noise in the mornings. This won't be a permanent thing, but it is happening now.

                                                          On the positive side, the beds are comfortable, central air conditioning was a plus on some very hot days, and the location is central. Unfortunately our disappointing arrival experience made me anxious to leave this house behind.

                                                          Spacious and clean

                                                          Bonnie F.

                                                          We enjoyed our stay.

                                                          The house met our needs - great location, clean and spacious. Well stocked too!
