Property of the Week: 135 Garden Street, Cambridge

Posted on October 29, 2010


Here’s a very cool and rare find in Cambridge: a 2000+ square foot loft with a top-floor greenhouse, expansive living area, 10′ ceilings, fireplace, two bedrooms, two baths, a large kitchen with dining area, off-street parking, private mahogany deck and two side yards. All this in a great location conveniently situated between Porter and Harvard Squares, near Danehy Park, Huron Village and Fresh Pond. This space is the former home of silicon valley incubator Y Combinator and is unlike anything else you’ll see in Cambridge.

If I lived there I would take full advantage of the top floor solarium and make it into an amazing green house! (I currently live on the first floor and while I eke out every bit of sunlight I can for my plants – they inhabit practically every window – I can only dream of what it would be like to have a real sunroom!) Not to mention the large kitchen, expansive great room, and super-convenient location.

Living Area: 2035 square feet

Offered at: $950,000
