Sold for $1,481,000

Just as the front door of 20 Mt Vernon Street pivots on its hinges, so do the opportunities it offers. Pivot right and you are in vibrant Porter Sq. (google maps clocks it at 3 min.) Turn left and Avon Hill, one of Cambridge’s most beautiful neighborhoods, unfolds before you. That’s what drew them to the house and has sustained them all these years. Enter through the front door and find a space that perfectly suits you, your family and friends: an open floor plan with high ceilings, deck, fireplaced living room, kitchen & dining room that flow beautifully around a central stair. Head upstairs to a private sanctuary: a master suite which envelops the top floor with a bedroom, bathroom, sitting room and deck. Vaulted ceilings provide the drama, and light and views provide the calm. Two more bedrooms and a shared bath make up the 2nd floor, and a separate entrance bedroom suite rounds out the ground floor. The attached garage and second parking space are merely icing on the cake!
