The space

***Please keep in mind that this is a typical house in Cambridge, that is a bit old and therefore has the wear and tear of an older home ie. loose door handles, scratches on floor and/or walls, perhaps stains on wooden floors, etc. It is very cozy and a lovely home, but again it just has an older feel so if you are looking for something modern or spotless, you may want to look elsewhere. Just want to be completely honest and thank you for your interest in my listing!

Ahmed's place was clean and spacious. Great place to hang out after checking out the city. Slightly out of the main part of Boston but easy enough to get to the city bus bus
