36 Fairmont Street, Unit 1, Cambridge

This beautiful home is near and dear to my heart, as once-upon-a-time, I rented the top floor unit, and so this was my home too. I can't say enough great things about the neighborhood -- so convenient, a great place for dog walks, and with friendly neighbors who even host annual block parties. I'll be just a tiny bit jealous of whoever buys it :)

With 1,100 SF of living area and a great finished lower level perfect for a guest room or home office, this Cambridgeport condo has better space than many 2-bed units. Housed in a 19th century mansard Victorian, this charming home offers a flowing layout with spacious living areas, high ceilings and period details like crown molding and a marble mantle in the living room. You'll love the beautifully renovated kitchen with cabinets all the way to the ceiling, the large master with its full wall of windows, and the great lower level bonus space. The large private patio is a perfect retreat for outdoor dining, gardening and relaxing.
