Dynamite location! Nestled behind a white picket fence on a charming Cambridgeport street, this 7-room, 3-bedroom home, originally a Greek Revival built by Torrey Hancock, affords a surprising amount of space with its flex rooms. The living room, with lined fireplace, opens to the dining room, creating wonderful entertainment space. The dining room features a wall of built-ins and decorative fireplace, and both rooms have very good light. The eat-in kitchen, with its original bake oven, has direct access to the pretty brick patio and side yard. The 2nd-floor master bedroom, with lined fireplace, has a small office/dressing room/future en suite bath; the 3d bedroom has loft-space above. The 3d floor is delightful and wonderfully open with skylights. Original architectural detail is evident throughout. The house is perfectly situated for Harvard/MIT/HBS/BU/hospitals; the biotech areas of East Cambridge and Kendall Square; Boston; the T; and all amenities. Driveway parking.
