The street itself - Kenway - runs between Gibson and Doane and has fewer than ten homes on it. Visitors to 5 Kenway often comment on how quiet and peaceful they find the locale.
The main living level at 5 Kenway features an open plan for the living room and dining area. A wood-burning fireplace anchors the space. The kitchen is located in the corner of the house and features three windows and ample cabinets and countertop space. There is also a door leading from the dining area to a small rear deck - perfect for a table and chairs.
On the second floor at 5 Kenway are two bedrooms and a full bath with stack laundry. The front bedroom features built-ins and is used as a study. The rear bedroom has a spacious walk-in closet. Also found on this floor is a charming hall window seat with a nice view onto the neighborhood.
The top floor at 5 Kenway is one of the nicest to be found in Cambridge. You will find another wood-burning fireplace here and windows all around bringing in lots of natural light. Located high above the street, the room is very private and truly feels like a place apart. Also found on this level is a full bath with shower and a bar area with sink and refrigerator. This level would make for a great master bedroom. That said, it works equally well as a family room.
Adding to the appeal of 5 Kenway is the finished lower level. A window well and two double hung windows allow for ample natural light for the main sitting area, which features a wood-burning stove. There is also a generous study alcove with built-ins. Also on the lower level is a cedar closet.
