A Country House in the City

The country mouse and the city mouse could each live happily at 72 Raymond St. In the midst of Avon Hill, it is shielded by trees and sits discretely on its large, corner lot with a long, south facing façade matched by a large yard and garden. It offers its owner wonderful privacy and an easy-going lifestyle, yet is between Porter Sq. and Huron Village with all the hustle and bustle one could hope for. The house has 4 lovely bedrooms, 2.5 bathrooms and a modest but open kitchen/dining room with amazing potential. The living room and the sitting room are gracious and comfortable and have welcomed many family and friends over the years. In contrast, the top floor library is a magical and private escape when you need to retreat. The practical side of you will love the 2 car garage which provides protection from the elements. We invite you to come and explore this beautiful country house in the middle of the city of Cambridge - a wonderful place to find balance in a fast-paced world.Description
