In-city Boston house, steps to bus and subway!


Home Description

Just steps from great restaurants and the city's excellent public transportation system, this is the perfect spot to gather your family for a graduation, your colleagues headed to a conference or simply as a base to visit all that Boston and New England have to offer. We're in a lively neighborhood full of shops and restaurants, close to hospitals, universities, museums, historic sites and green spaces. The Green Street stop on the Orange Line of Boston's subway system (we call it the "T") is less than a block down the street. And bus line #39, a 6-minute walk up the street, will take you quickly to the Longwood Medical area, the Museum of Fine Arts, Copley Square, the Boston Public Garden and Faneuil Hall. We’ve decorated and equipped our gracious new Boston home for our own use, so we are confident that guests will enjoy it as much as we do. It’s an 1890’s single-family (not an apartment or condo) light and airy, recently renovated with a modern, open floor plan, freshly painted and warmly furnished with family antiques. It's fully equipped and offers free, off-street parking for two cars. You’ll feel perfectly comfortable and at home as you head out from this quiet oasis to explore one of the world’s most interesting cities! The Rooms There are three carpeted bedrooms upstairs: one queen, one double, and one with twin beds. On the ground floor there is a new, full-sized sofa bed in the family room. Total capacity: 8 guests. Two full bathrooms serve the bedrooms on the second floor, one for the master suite (with large shower), and another with a bathtub and shower for guests staying in the two other rooms. There is a half-bath (“powder room”) on the ground floor, near the TV/music room. The main floor is “open plan,” with oak flooring throughout. The modern kitchen is equipped with granite counters, gas stove, dishwasher, large refrigerator with ice-maker and filtered water tap, microwave, coffee maker, toaster, blender and various other small appliances. In a closet you’ll find a stacked, front-loading washer and dryer. The kitchen opens onto a comfortable dining area and spacious living room, both bathed in sunlight under 10-foot ceilings. The Amenities The house has forced hot air heat, central air conditioning, high-speed Wi-Fi, flat screen smart TV, Blu-ray network-enabled DVD player, an iPhone dock, a printer, ironing board and iron, hair dryers, an upright piano and every utensil you could possible need in the kitchen. Of course, all linens are provided. Please let us know if we’ve failed to think of something! The Furnishings We have furnished the house not with standard-issue pieces you’ll find in rentals and hotels all over the world, but with souvenirs from our travels and antique furniture inherited from our family. There are, for example, the carpet I brought back from Tunisia in 1972, a pair of upholstered “barrel chairs” given to my parents 50 years ago, a marble-topped bureau that belonged my great-grandparents in the 1890’s, and a chest of drawers that was delivered to my great-great grandparents in Elizabeth, New Jersey, probably about 1860. We hope you’ll enjoy the warm ambience the furnishings create, the fact that each piece has a rich history … and that you will care for them as we do.
