Looking forward to spending more time in this great Davis neighborhood, same as my last listing at 92 Bay State Ave — it is lovely and leafy and on a sunny day, the neighbors are all out working in their gardens, walking their dogs, pushing strollers and stopping to chat with each other. It really is the type of place most of us would like to live…
20 Foskett Street, Unit 3, Somerville
The perfect blend of classic Victorian character and modern renovation in a beloved Davis neighborhood! This top-floor home offers hardwood floors and beautiful woodwork, lots of windows, two large bedrooms with great closets, stylishly renovated bathrooms, a central eat-in kitchen with custom cabinets and a pantry, and a charming living room with french doors opening onto a deck with gorgeous long views. Additional perks include in-unit laundry, ample storage throughout the unit and in the basement, and a shared yard that is a gardener’s dream with a shade tree, assorted annual and perennial flower gardens and raised beds for growing herbs and veggies! Amazing location in a tranquil residential neighborhood of parks, playgrounds, the library and the Community Path, yet less than a half mile to vibrant Davis Square, with its restaurants, cafes, movie theater, music venues, and the T! Well-run, 100% owner-occupied association.
