Walk to Davis, Union or Porter Squares in less than a mile (15 min). Bike to Harvard, MIT and Tufts in 10 min. Uber to Boston in 15. The flat is spacious, stylish and convenient with gorgeous antique bones and expected modern conveniences, too.
Gorgeous high-ceilinged double parlor Victorian apartment in stately 1905 owner-occupied two-family on Spring Hill. Beautiful original detail preserved but with important updates such as a brand new heating system and plenty of outlets.
I will do short term but would be happy too to have a three or six month tenant - ask me for details. The bedrooms will have a queen and a full bed respectively and there will be a single pullout in the larger bedroom as well, and an available air mattress for additional guests in the LR.
Come see this elegant home situated walking distance between three thriving squares: Davis/Porter/Union all less than a mile away.
Three Little Figs for your cappuccino and Highland Kitchen for your ale and trout and kale are a five-minute stroll, as is Once/Cuisine en Localefor great live shows, and the Somerville winter farmer's market is but a block away--who needs Whole Foods! But if you do there is a new one on Beacon just five minutes drive. Or head down to Davis for great cinema, restaurants, bars, brunch places etc.
Enjoy the sun on the front porch every morning and the shady little backyard patio all summer.

Accès des voyageurs
Your two bedroom unit is yours to relax in and enjoy. (I live in the upstairs unit and I'm usually around if you need me or if you have questions, otherwise you probably won't see me:)
Échanges avec les voyageurs
(I live in the upstairs unit and can be reached, but after you're settled in you probably won't see much of me:)
Parking: If you will have a car, I can lend you a guest permit for Somerville resident parking areas (like my street) for short stays. If you will need to park a car longer than 3 days and you would like an extended guest parking pass, homeowners can order a date-specific one (good for up to 30 days) from the city. PLEASE NOTE: Requests for a date-specific parking permit must be made at least 4 weeks in advance. Cost may vary between $25 and $50 dollars, and payment must be made in advance via (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN).
Please take good care of my place and enjoy it while you are there! I expect common sense and courtesy and they are always appreciated. No parties, no additional unscheduled guests. Rinse your recycle bottles before you dispose of them. Turn heat and AC down before you head out for the day (apartment heats and cools very quickly). And tell me if anything is wrong/broken so I can hopefully make it right/whole timely. No smoking ever in the house of any kind please, outside on the porch in moderation or in the yard only and only if you must - thanks!
