A two-family house tucked behind the bike path, on a very quiet street three minutes walk from Davis Square. Four stories with huge open, loft-style spaces on every floor, three extra-large bedrooms, an “out of this world” roof deck with 360-degree views of the sky and treetops. A fenced garden with cozy corners surrounding the house, make it feel like a little oasis.
All spaces have oversized windows of 6′ x 6′ or larger, very high ceilings, bamboo floors and radiant floor heating.
The duplex unit on the third & fourth floors has a large loft-style open living room and kitchen with treetop views, one big bedroom, a full bathroom, and a laundry room. Its master suite on the fourth floor has floor-to-ceiling windows, en-suite bathroom, and a 750 s.f. roof deck.
The second unit, on the second floor, has a similarly large loft-style living/dining room, an open kitchen, all with oversized 6′ x 6′ windows. The unit has one large bedroom, one full bathroom, a laundry room and plenty of storage, with .
The ground floor is a beautiful, expansive home office/artist studio. It features exposed concrete finish, 12-foot ceilings, and and 8′ x 6′ windows overlooking the garden. This space is built on two levels, with a mezzanine that can be used as a lounge, reception, or dining area and a half bath. It connects to a private outdoor garden and has access to the main garden as well. The mezzanine leads to an attached interior garage and there’s additional off-street parking.
Buyers will find abundant possibilities:
1. Live in one unit and rent the other while having a gorgeous home office/studio.
2. Live in both units as a very large single family
3. Rent all units
4. Convert the studio to a beautiful in-law suite
5. Convert the building into two condos (ask us about it – we have all design drawings made for a condo split by a great architect).
The building is a very strong long-term investment in an unbeatable location — three minutes from the Red Line, five minutes from the new Green Line subway station that’s under construction (scheduled to open in 2021). Davis Sq. is a desirable and lively neighborhood, right between Tufts and Harvard Universities.
