Overview: Steeped in history, the city of Cambridge MA remains a vibrant center of culture and commerce. Cambridge is most commonly known for the excellent educational facilities located within its city borders, including Harvard University and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. This special city has a diverse population of about 100,000 residents, consisting of college students and professors, business professionals and families.
Location: Cambridge is situated just north of Boston along the lovely Charles River. Because of it’s close proximity to the state capital, many people who commute into Boston for work and school chose to live in Cambridge. The series of paths and walkways along “the Charles” are very popular for walkers and runners, and the river itself is a famous rowing location.
Transportation: The Massachusetts Bay Transit Authority (MBTA), which serves all of Boston as well as much of eastern Massachusetts and Rhode Island, has several stations in Cambridge, including Porter Square Station, Lechmere Station, Harvard Square and Kendall Square/MIT. The largest airport in the area is Logan International which is about 20 minutes from Cambridge.
Education: In addition to world-renowned Harvard University and MIT, Cambridge is home to several other excellent education centers. Among these are Cambridge College, Episcopal Divinity School, Lesley University, and the American Academy of Arts and Sciences.
Culture: There are dozens of popular bars, restaurants, and coffee shops throughout the city, particularly in Harvard Square and Kendall Square, which also have great shopping and music venues. In 2014, Cambridge was named the “Smartest City in America” by Forbes.com, with over 70% of residents 25 years and older having at least an undergraduate degree.

A bright and sophisticated condominium accessed through a completely private entrance, it occupies the ground floor and a portion of the second story of an 1854 Greek Revival house in the Old Cambridge Historic District. Because of its own private entrance and very separate outdoor space, it retains the feel of a single-family house. Rebuilt in 2006, the property has generous rooms with high ceilings and large windows, ample bookcases, a 2 car garage, a full basement, and a beautifully landscaped south facing garden. Designed by a former editor of Gourmet Magazine, the kitchen is unusually functional and handsome, and an indoor Endless Poolâ„¢ allows you to keep fit at home. Serene. Sunny. Gracious. 23 Berkeley Street could be just what you've been looking for.
