Located at one of Cambridge’s very finest sites close to Harvard Square. Secluded and private, stately 1873 Victorian set back behind lovely flower-bordered gardens. Twice-recipient of MA Horticultural Society awards. 10' ceilings, palatial proportions throughout. Large-scale entertaining spaces. Unusually gracious rooms, all with two exposures. Abundant natural light. Vast south-facing living room. Magnificent library with original fine wood paneling and built-in bookcases. Dining room accommodates everyone, featuring a fireplace and bay. Colossal light-filled kitchen. Many bedrooms and studies, all generously proportioned and most with baths en-suite. Oversized windows and doors; hardwood floors; unusually deep moldings. 6 fireplaces, with unique marble or wood mantelpieces. Central AC. Meticulously maintained and ready for updating. Potential for more than 8,000 sq ft of finished space in the main house. Elegant rear carriage house/garage offers an additional 2650 sq ft above grade.
