138 Banks St #138, Cambridge
Size: 2,109 square feet
Bathrooms: 3 full, 1 half
A house like this is bound to turn heads. This Cambridge condo, with its stacked floors, sharp corners, and curved roof, might look more like a building block that an actual building. But while those down below might stop and stare, you’ll be too busy to notice as you gaze out at the view of the Charles River.
Built in 2016, this stand-alone condo is one of three in a tucked away enclave by Harvard Square. With three stories and deeded parking for two cars, there’s plenty of room to spread out, but with easy access to shops and public transit in Harvard, plus a walk along the Charles just a quick jaunt away. With glass walls, floor-to-ceiling windows, and two-bedroom balconies, you’ll have plenty of vantage points to enjoy a waterside view or the Boston skyline from three floors up.
On the main level, a living room with a gas fireplace, a European-inspired kitchen with stone counters, and a dining room sprawl out across an open floor plan. Through glass doors off the dining room, you have access to a private yard and patio perfect for al fresco dining or sitting outside with a glass of wine after a good meal on a warm summer night.
Head up the staircase to the second floor (while taking time to admire the view from the glass walls on the landing) and you’ll find a spacious main bedroom suite with a spa-like bathroom and walk-in closet. There are two more bedrooms on the third floor, each with their own spacious balcony for sitting on and watching the sun set over the city. A finished lower level with a full bath, laundry, storage, and outdoor access also offers space for a fourth bedroom, in-law suite, or even a family room.
