On the Market: A Mod Harvard Square Townhouse
36 Irving Street #5, Cambridge
Size: 1,302 square feet
Situated steps from Harvard Yard, this funky townhouse is unique to Cambridge. The modern abode was designed by architects Doug Bell and Gerald Fandetti in 1978. As Curbed notes, the duo designed townhouse communities throughout Cambridge between 1973 and 1981, completing about 170 of them. The loft-style dwellings have rooms divided with levels rather than walls, and incorporate natural materials and plenty of light.
This unit on Irving Street offers exposed beams, skylights, and expansive windows. An airy, one-of-a-kind living space connects to the kitchen and a dining area. There’s an open mezzanine study that overlooks the living room, and outside, there’s a spacious deck and a fenced-in side yard.
