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.

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.

They wanted what so many seek - a beautiful space to start a new chapter, a vibrant location, a cozy, comfortable home for two yet big enough to accommodate visitors, and a property that would be simple to own. At 117 Oxford St, they found just that-a newly constructed 4 bed, 4.5 bath TH built by a premier local developer in the heart of the Agassiz neighborhood. With plentiful shops & restaurants along Mass Ave, they were spoiled for choice, but Giulia became their neighborhood hangout. The 1st flr is a beautifully designed, open plan LR, DR & kitchen. A patio off the DR is perfect on summer evenings. The LL, complete with a wet bar, is the place to watch movies or football games on a rainy Sunday afternoon. A beautifully planted garden in the front is just big enough to get your hands dirty. The chapter turned out shorter than planned as they are being called back to Connecticut, creating a fantastic opportunity for a new owner to start a story of their own in this beautiful place.
