About our home

A lovely art-filled home in a quiet tree-lined neighborhood. 5 minute walk to public transportation, cafes,grocery stores, restaurants, parks, playgrounds and across the street from a tennis court. Recently renovated with beautiful details, filled with light from 6 skylights and glass doors leading to a Japanese garden and tea-house. Contemporary furnishings and comfortable rooms, floor area of 225 m2 (2420 sq.ft) • car optional • children OK • NO smoking • internet (highspeed)2 offices with wifi and cable TV. Both house and garden have been published in architectural books.
Safe, very desirable neighborhood, 10 feet from Boston and one block from the acclaimed Frederick Law Olmsted Park and ponds.
We live in the same neighborhood as our 3 adult children and their families and so there are usually family and friends immediately available to assist exchange visitors! My husband is a professor and I am an art curator; we would be happy to share more pictures and information upon request.
