It’s rare to find a 3-bedroom condo in Cambridge — much less one with two full baths — for less than a million in Cambridge. And yet this week I have the pleasure of listing one! A rare opportunity for someone to get that extra bedroom or home office they need, or an amazing investment opportunity, given the proximity to MIT, Harvard’s main campus AND the Business School across the River.
Come check it out at my open houses:
- Thursday, June 20, 11:30 am – 12:30 pm
- Saturday & Sunday, June 22 & 23, 12 – 1:30 pm
15 Howard Street, Unit 1, Cambridge
Amazing value for a 3-bed Cambridge condo equidistant to Harvard, MIT & HBS! This lovely first floor unit features three good-sized bedrooms, an open-concept eat-in kitchen / living room, two full baths, plus great perks like in-unit laundry, air conditioning, a large common patio and basement storage. And the location is prime — a residential street between the Charles River and Central Square, abutting a large park (with off-leash dog hours!), less than a half mile to the train, very close to Trader Joe’s, Whole Foods, HMart, Harvard, MIT and HBS. Walkscore = 92 (“Walker’s Paradise”), Bikescore is 98 (“Biker’s Paradise”) and there are many convenient commuting options with easy access to the Red Line, the 47 bus to Longwood, Memorial Drive and the Mass Pike. Building is well-maintained with low-maintenance vinyl siding and a new roof. Self-managed, pet-friendly, 100% owner-occupied association. Don’t miss it!
