When a reader sent me the listing for what looked like a fairly nondescript older home in Cambridge, Massachusetts, I was surprised to see how pretty and light-filled the rooms are after a remodel updated them for a younger generation of homeowners. It’s on the market, so let’s take a look!
A New Old House For Sale in Cambridge
The listing says:
If the Buddha got a job at Google and moved to Cambridge, this is where he would live! Sited on a private way where Avon Hill meets Radcliffe, this renovated home elegantly merges clean, contemporary design with the rustic warmth of reclaimed barn floors, exposed beams and shelving.
“The stunning kitchen features a 12’ island with limestone counter, high-end appliances, and walk-in pantry.”
Walk-in pantry with sliding barn door:
Sunroom with Skylights:
“The sunroom is washed in light, and offers access to the patio and garden.”
A Light and Bright Dining Area:
“The open layout connects the living and dining areas with the kitchen.”
“The tucked-away office provides a quiet retreat on the first floor.”
First Floor Layout:
There are 3 bedrooms, 3 baths, and 1,754 square feet
Although the house was built in 1870, it looks much more contemporary after the remodel.
It’s easy to imagine a young family living here.
Raised Ceilings in the Hall:
“The airy second floor features soaring ceilings above the center hall and in two of the bedrooms, made even more dramatic by skylights and exposed beams.”
Thanks to Susan for telling me about it. She said it would go quickly, and she was right. By the time I finished writing this post, it already had a pending offer!
How was your weekend? I worked on taxes while watching old “MTM Show” episodes, which made the process a little less painful. And then I spent a few hours trying to unravel the secrets of an old castle in a Kate Morton novel. Another mystery I’d like to solve: why we still have to deal with Daylight Savings Time… 😉
