My charming home is just steps away from the Red Line T where you can easily get to Harvard, Davis, and Central Squares, Tufts University, MIT and downtown Boston in mere minutes. My home is in a vibrant neighborhood with everything you could want easily accessible, from a grocery store, restaurants, shopping, gyms, an independent book store, coffee shops and much more. My place is good for couples, solo adventurers, and business travelers.
