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.
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.
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.
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.
The updated home is on the market in Cambridge, Massachusetts, for $2.3 million.
