Cambridge townhouse a fall haven – Boston Herald


On one of those blessed New England fall days when it’s 65 and sunny, that light jacket weather, you want to live in a neighborhood where you can throw on that aforementioned jacket and go for a walk so you can take it all in. For this highly specific but deeply enjoyable moment, is there a better launch spot than mid-Cambridge?

Start at 339 Harvard St. #2, which just so happens to be on the market, and you’ll find parks, the Cambridge Public Library, the Esplanade and Central Square just moments away. The townhouse’s location is pure convenience. But practical matters aside, it’s also quite lovely thanks to period elements, including picturesque bow windows, ornate fireplaces and trim work.

The living floor is split into two areas: the formal living room with French doors and custom cabinetry, and the dining and family area, which includes the kitchen. This latter space offers spacious seating for formal meals by the bow window arrangement and a cozy gathering spot in front of the fireplace.

On the second level, two large bedrooms open off the sculptural staircase — the primary with its double closets, sunlit en suite bath with soaking tub, and fireplace, plus a guest bedroom that opens to a magnificent 24-foot deck.

Open house hours are Saturday and Sunday, Sept. 24 and 25, from 11:30 am to 1 pm For more information about the property, listed at $1,650,000, contact Gail Roberts, Ed Feijo and Team with Coldwell Banker Realty — Cambridge, 617-780-4354.
