So excited to be bringing this great listing on this week — was such a treat to find it for my client when she bought a few years back, and happy to help her find a new owner for her lovely home…
504 Franklin St, Cambridge — 2 BR / 1.5 ba, 959 SF condo — listed at $599,000
Charming townhome in lovely Riverside neighborhood between Harvard and Central Squares, with easy access to both T Stations! This fully-renovated 2-bed, 1.5 bath condo has the feel of a single-family home with a separate entrance, two levels of living space, private outdoor space and parking (technically one space, but two small cars can fit tandem). And soooo much character! Must be seen in person to be truly appreciated. With its gorgeous magnolia, apple tree and gardens, and tranquil park across the street, this home is an oasis in the city, yet less than a half-mile to the train, and surrounded by restaurants, cafes, bakeries, several grocery stores and live music venues. Both Harvard and MIT are easily accessible and the Charles River is just down the street – the best of everything Cambridge has to offer! 100% owner-occupied, pet-friendly association.
I normally don’t like to post out-of-season pictures of my listings, but I think we’ve all seen enough snow for the year, and this place has such amazing outdoor space, that I’m throwing that all out the window. Feast your eyes on all this lovely green and pink!
So much to love in this vibrant neighborhood!
