Remember listening to James Taylor sing “Up On The Roof”? Now sing it with me... ? “When this old world starts getting me down, and people are just too much for me to face, I climb way up to the top of the stairs, and all my cares just drift right into space...” With light pouring in and beautiful treetop views, 244 Brattle St. #41 is that place, the epitome of peace & tranquility. In an elegant pre-war brick building in West Cambridge, it has a quality that can’t be replicated. There’s an elegant living room & dining room in which to entertain your friends, a proper study, and two bedrooms set apart from the living room for privacy. When you want to get outside, you simply go up to the actual roof - an expansive common roof deck - a few steps above you. And you won’t waste time commuting, it’s a quick bus or bike ride to Harvard Sq. & the Red Line or you can grab your car from your own private garage and drive. “A paradise that’s trouble proof” awaits you, so come and check it out!
