Description

This elegant Federal Colonial Revival single-family home was designed by renowned architect Lois Lily Howe, one of the first women to graduate from MIT’s School of Architecture. This imposing 13 room, 6 bedroom, 4.5 bath residence was built in 1900.  It is superbly located at the gateway of Harvard Square, overlooking the Charles River and River Bend Park, steps from Longfellow Park and in Cambridge’s Half Crown Marsh District. 

This extraordinary home is ideal for entertaining and has a very smart  floor plan. The first floor features a large living room, family room, and a dining room, which can easily accommodate 20 for dinner. The rooms have historical details which include intricate crown moldings, large windows, wall adornments, Southern pine floors, interior window shutters, and 5 wood burning fireplaces with ornate carved mantels. The kitchen features a center island with generous storage cabinets, and a six-burner cast-iron commercial-grade Garland stove with hood.

On the second floor there are 2 bedrooms with bathrooms ensuite, a full laundry room, and a generously sized study. The third floor has 4 more bedrooms and 2 full baths.The unfinished full basement and walk-up attic combine for a total of 3570 additional square feet of storage or build-out potential.

The secluded patio surrounded by greenery is directly accessible from the kitchen side entrance. Adjacent to the patio is off-street parking for 2 vehicles. Sophisticated and graceful in design, yet comfortable for everyday living, this home is a rare gem.
