Historic House Renovated for Modern Convenience

Details

Home Description

This house was originally built in 1860. In 1900 the house was purchased and converted into a 2-family home to accommodate extended family. Today homes like this in Boston have been converted into apartments and condos. Retaining its original structure each room in this historic 2 address house has been renovated to offer all of the modern conveniences that make for a pleasant stay. House characteristics of that era like steep stairs and smaller room sizes could prove challenging for some visitors, but perfect for those looking to fully experience the history of Boston. This upper unit has 2,200 square feet of living space divided into 12 rooms consisting of 4 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, kitchen, living room, dining room, den/5th bedroom, porch, game room, large yard, outside BBQ with patio dining for 8 and off-street parking for 2 cars.
The house allows a maximum of 12 people. The standard sleeping configuration is to use the 4 bedrooms and the den as sleeping areas. However for added convenience and privacy the sleeping areas can be expanded during warm weather months into 8 distinct sleeping areas that include: 1) Master Bedroom queen size bed (with an EZ inflate twin in the closet), 2) Maple Bedroom full size bed, 3) White Bedroom full size bed, 4) Porch Bedroom full size bed, 5) Den full size and twin size sleeper couches, 6) Porch twin size bed (not heated so unusable Nov–Mar), 7) 3rd floor Loft twin size bed and 8) Game Room EZ inflate queen size bed (also not heated so unusable Nov–Mar).

Boston is America’s oldest city with the downtown area surrounded by 22 Boston neighborhoods. The property is situated in Boston’s “Brighton neighborhood”, which is the college neighborhood surrounded by Harvard to the North, Boston College to the South and Boston University to the East. This location is ideal as you are only 5 miles from downtown Boston and 200 yards from Brighton Center. Brighton Center is a quaint urban area with banks, a post office, library, restaurants, pubs, coffee shops, pizza places, ice cream parlors and more. Enjoy a Pats or Sox game with locals in one of the Irish pubs, have lunch in a pleasant courtyard restaurant, or take an after dinner stroll for some ice cream. Brighton’s lively center offers an authentic taste of life in the Boston area. The house is also within walking distance from a United Church of Christ, Roman Catholic Church and a Jewish Synagogue.

Boston’s public transit system, “the T” includes: subway, trolley, bus, rail and ferry options. A 3 minute walk to the “T stop” allows you to quickly get anywhere in the city, while saving you the cost of staying at a downtown hotel. If you rent a car or use Uber, it’s a 1.5-mile drive to the Mass Pike (I-90) that gets you to downtown Boston in 15 minutes and then anywhere else in New England.

 

This is a 2 family house that is 200 yards from Brighton Center. Brighton Center is a village that has banks, pubs, restaurants, post office, grocery shopping, public transportation stops and everything you need within easy walking distance from the house.

Great place - just as advertised

Very easy process and the home was just as advertised. We walked to BC for a game as well as the nearby shops and restaurants. Getting to Fenway and downtown were short Uber rides. The house itself is well maintained and easy to access. Located on the end of the street made it quiet and peaceful. I would definitely recommend to anyone interested in traveling to Boston. Heath

Home away from home

This is a great place to say. All you need and close to Boston just a short block to public transportation. Very clean. Owner called to be sure we were comfortable. Wifi available and all the comforts of home. This is a find 5 stars.

We loved spending time together

We loved the house and the proximity to all things Boston. Be prepared to walk some stairs and a gentle touch with the toaster is needed. The owner reached out to make sure everything was great. This was my first time doing VRBO (or related sites) and it could not have been a better experience! Thank you!
