A Manhattan Pre-War in Cambridge!

Sold For $750,000

How would you like to live in a classic Manhattan Pre-War, but not have to leave Cambridge? The Larches, built in 1923, offers the refined style, elegant detailing, traditional layout and well-proportioned rooms that these buildings are known for. With unusually large original windows and distinctive decorative trim throughout, Unit 12 offers two bedrooms plus a study that doubles as a guest room. The building itself has been extremely well kept over the years. The roof and common boiler and water heater have all been replaced, and a communal roof deck has been added. Maintenance and repointing of the brick exterior has been systematic and ongoing. This is a rock solid building with 17 of 18 units owner occupied and and a well-balanced operating budget. Perfectly located with easy access to shopping and Fresh Pond. Leave your car in your private garage and commute to Harvard Square on foot or by bus – then stop on your way home to pick up dinner at Star Market or Sofra!
