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!

Nice place, comfortable beds, and good location for our trip; needs some TLC (a coffeemaker and a little upgrade for guests).

I liked the house and apartment itself, and it was as advertised--an older home. But, the space itself felt uncared for--stuff strewn on the backporch and inside the closets, the inside of the kitchen shelves needed to be wiped down and organized. The battries were burnt out in t…
