112 Walden: Gracious Residence between Porter Square and Raymond Park

112 Walden on Avon Hill outside of Porter Square.

112 Walden is now SOLD. Located in West Cambridge between Porter Square and Raymond Park, 112 Walden is a gracious 3-bedroom, 2-bath residence on the top two floors. This home is nicely situated high above the street. The private entrance to 112 Walden is located off the front porch, being one of just two units in the building.

One very nice feature of 112 Walden is that it enjoys its own front porch on the second floor. The private porch is accessible from the front study, with windows onto the porch from the study and the living room. The porch is just the place for a rocking chair or two for relaxing on a sunny weekend afternoon.

Period detail and natural wood distinguish 112 Walden, which dates from 1925 according to the city of Cambridge online assessor's database. The current owners have maintained and improved the place, including replacing the windows, repainting exterior and deleading. There is a letter of compliance now on file for the residence.

Undoubtedly a highlight of 112 Walden is the family room off of the cook's kitchen, which easily accommodates a spacious sitting area and flat screen on one wall. It's easy to keep the family chef company at the inviting bar counter next to the wine storage and serving area. You'll be imagining your house warming party the moment you step into this comfortable, relaxed space.

Also found on the main living level is a full-size dining room connecting to the kitchen via a butler's pantry with ample storage space. There is even a third bedroom and full bath on this level, ideal for a guest.

One of my favorite places on this floor is the front study with French door to the front porch. It's great to have a study separate from the 3 bedrooms found at 112 Walden.

And there's more! Don't forget the sun room off the kitchen. This light-filled room overlooks the back yard and gardens.

What's nice about 112 Walden is that you can gain direct access to the private patio and yard area out back via the back stairs off the kitchen. This is ideal for someone with a dog who wishes to quickly get outside. It makes it easy, too, for summertime outdoor entertaining to quickly get back to the kitchen.

Last but not least is the additional bedroom on the top floor. It is L-shaped and hence offers a great place for a desk or separate sitting area.  The soaring ceiling gives this room a charming sensibility.  Kids are sure to love this room!

On the lower level at 112 Walden you will find a spacious private storage area and private full-size laundry machines.
