THEY WANTED WHAT SO MANY SEEK:  A beautiful and compelling space to start a new chapter in Cambridge;  a vibrant location that offered them easy access to the city’s offerings, a cozy, comfortable home for the two of them yet big enough to accommodate visitors, and a property they could move right into that would be simple to own. At 117 Oxford Street, they found just that - a newly constructed 4 bedroom, 4.5 bathroom townhouse built by one of the premier local developers - Hill Harter Development - in the heart of the Agassiz neighborhood. Harvard and Porter Squares are just around the corner. With plentiful shops and restaurants along Mass Ave, they were spoiled for choice, but Giulia became their neighborhood hangout.

The first floor is a beautifully designed open plan living room, dining room and kitchen space with 11-foot ceilings and walls of windows bringing in the light. A patio off the dining room connects the indoor and outdoor spaces and is perfect for eating outside on summer evenings. Each bedroom has its own bathroom, including a master bath to die for. The lower level, complete with a wet bar, is perfect for watching movies or football games on a rainy Sunday afternoon.  A beautifully planted garden in the front is just big enough to get your hands dirty without tying you to hours of maintenance.  

The chapter turned out to be shorter than planned as they are being called back to Connecticut, creating a fantastic opportunity for a new owner to take over where they left off, and start a story of their own in this beautiful place.
