The love affair began in 1982 when he walked through the door and it has sustained him ever since. Woven beautifully into a 1890’s Mansard building was a 4 level townhouse full of light, open spaces, large expanses of glass, and original brick and wood. From the sunken living room with its private patio, all the way up to the skylit master suite in the mansard, the property oozed personality and opportunity. The 1st two levels are to share with family and friends: cooking in the open plan kitchen/dining room upstairs or watching movies and swapping stories in the living room. The upper two levels are more private: two bedrooms are on the 3rd floor and a master sanctuary is on the 4th. From every level, he could see trees and feel the warmth of the sun. He could walk to Harvard Sq. in less than 15 minutes, stroll along the Charles River at sunset, and get in of town easily when needed. Unlike some loves that end, he will take this one with him and leave behind the opportunity for someone new to develop their own romance with the townhouse known as 4 Sparks Place.
