In atmospheric Professors Row, the setting for this contemporary townhouse is towards the end of the intimate mews, amidst lovely mature trees to provide greenery in its dynamite urban location. The living room has a wall of windows and a soaring ceiling; a designer wood stove; an “expandable” dining room; and a kitchen with granite counters, stainless-steel refrigerator with French doors and lower freezer, a Bosch dishwasher, as well as a gas stove with vented microwave above. The bedroom on the second floor is generously sized and could be used as the master bedroom, with its own full bath; the laundry room is conveniently located on this floor. The master bedroom suite above has a wall of closets with drawers and storage systems, a cathedral ceiling, two skylights and an en suite bath with a hot water dispenser to have a cup of tea or coffee in bed. The two offices above have skylights and closets; the upper office had been used as a bedroom by the previous owners. Two years ago the garden level room was renovated, with a full bath and kitchenette added, which provides terrific space for family use, guests or an au pair. Pella sliders in the living room, which lead to the deck and patio in the fenced yard and from the garden level to the patio and gardens, were recently replaced. The coat closet is near the heated 1-car attached garage, which has an overhead automatic door opener and room for storage. The house has central air conditioning; a 1-year-old Veissmann wall-mounted, gas-fired condensing boiler with hot water on demand; replacement tilt-in windows; 2005 roof; gutters cleaned June 3d of this year. The Harvard Square T is nearby; there are bus stops on Kirkland; Julia Child’s beloved Savenor’s is just up the street; there is an easy jaunt to every Square in Cambridge.
