On prestigious Brattle Street in the famed Old Cambridge Historic District, minutes from Harvard Square, this beautiful historic home sits right across from Lowell Park and next to protected land of a substantial property. Tastefully updated in keeping with its classic style, this single-family attached home opens to a private backyard terrace and flower garden. A side driveway parks 2 cars. Bathed in sunlight, the inviting bay-windowed living room features a fireplace. Wide entryways connect into the understatedly elegant dining room and custom kitchen with breakfast area, marble counters and Thermador gas range. The second floor's sunny bay-windowed bedroom/family room has an office alcove adjacent. Having the third floor to itself, the extensive master suite brings added natural light through skylights in its office/library, airy cathedral-ceilinged bedroom, and dressing area off the bath. Served by its own full bath, the basement level has two rooms ideal for games or exercise.
