The Grande Dame of the gaming world, she loved puzzles. When the pieces fit together, everything was right with the world. That is how she felt about the two family home perfectly located between Harvard and Central Squares and the Charles River. A graceful building with 4/1 bedrooms, 2/1.5 baths, a driveway for 2-3 cars, 2 decks and a yard. Flexible in nature, it supported her during different stages in her life and always provided income. She, in turn, took care of it, renovating it for her own comfort as she went along. Early on, the upper duplex with its dramatic master suite was her home. Later, when she desired simplicity, the 1st floor became her haven and she gave herself a new kitchen, central a/c and a large master suite. She was an icon of her Riverside neighborhood traveling back and forth to her store “The Games People Play” on Mass Ave. and taking part in all Cambridge has to offer. The backyard was her retreat, a place in which she could relax, and tend her garden. Now it's time to pass along the house. So, come and discover how its pieces will fit together for you.
