Built in 1826, this brick rowhouse for sale in East Cambridge looks nothing like the glass towers springing up in nearby Kendall Square. With gleaming hardwoods, exposed beams, and plenty of bricks, the abode is overflowing with antique charm.

There’s nothing rustic about the place, though—it was upgraded a few years ago with top-of-the-line fixtures, a new kitchen, and charming gardens. The elegantly appointed home feels more like an English cottage than a single-family in the city thanks to its fireplaced dining area and small, cozy rooms. Outside, a sizable private patio provides some space to stop and smell the roses.
