On The Market: 46 Follen Street, Cambridge
Looking to rent near Harvard? An incredible townhome, attached to one other in the building, just came on the market just blocks from Cambridge Commons and Harvard Square on a quiet, tree-lined street.
The building used to be the Lincoln’s Inn Society, a Harvard Law School social club founded in 1907, but was completely gutted and dramatically transformed in 2010 two luxurious townhomes, one of which is currently available for rent.
“It’s a historical home that has been transformed into this modern, beautiful townhouse,” says Re/Max Luxury Living listing agent Allison Shannon. The home spans four levels, a unique find for the area.
Upon entering the space, there is a foyer, which opens into the living room, leading into the state-of-the-art kitchen, and then out to the large patio. A beautiful staircase in the center anchors the entire space, creating flow throughout the spacious levels. Downstairs is a media room or au pair suite, which has direct access to the patio. Upstairs are the sleeping quarters, with the master bedroom and en suite bath on the second floor, as well as laundry and another smaller bedroom with en suite bath, finishing with the last two bedrooms on the top floor.
Shannon explains that the unit has been attractive to professionals or CFOs, particularly those coming to Harvard Business School. “If they’re coming into town for a couple of years and are looking for a beautiful place to stay, they are used to a certain type of lifestyle,” says Shannon, “and this home certainly accommodates that.”
