When it comes to this property in Somerville, it’s about location, location, location. Just a seven-minute walk to Harvard, this home comes with great T access and closeness to all the restaurants, shops, and activity that makes up traditional Cambridge. The house also offers parking space for at least six cars.

“[The house] maintains the character and features of the period of the property with its curved windows, plaster ceilings, slate roof, and original fir floors,” says Coldwell Banker listing agent Elisa Spence.

While these traditional elements offer a classic feel, Spence describes the property as a “… historic property that has been completely renovated.” With upgraded electrical systems, central air, a jacuzzi tub, and even some new bamboo and pine flooring as well, everything is up-to-date and move-in ready.

This space is particularly promising for those who want to accommodate two families or run a businesses from home as it has a separate entrance to the perfect office space or apartment. With this kind of versatility and scenery, there’s no question why this home has garnered so much interest.
