On the Market: An Elegant Brick Townhouse in Cambridge
With a private courtyard around back.
15 Shepard Street, Cambridge
Size: 2,346 square feet
You’re much more likely to spot a brick rowhouse in the South End than, say, in Cambridge, which makes this one for sale off of Mass. Ave. a rare find. A stone’s throw from Harvard Square, the 1873 home is elegant both inside and out.
From the street, the brick beauty exudes Victorian charm. That charm extends around back, too, where there’s a leafy fenced-in courtyard with plenty of room for a garden. Inside, the house has a decidedly modern feel, with recessed lighting, an updated kitchen, built-in bookshelves, new windows, and a new heating and cooling system. Antique accents include a marble fireplace, pocket doors, and a grand central staircase.
