- 60 Magnolia Avenue #3 is now SOLD. It closed on January 27, 2012 for $405,000. I served as the listing broker for the seller. 60 Magnolia Avenue #3 is a delightful light-filled top floor two-bedroom condo near Harvard and close to Inman Square in Mid-Cambridge. 60 Magnolia Avenue #3 scores a 91 on Walk Score - Walker's Paradise! Out front you will find trees and white picket fences and brick sidewalks in a classic Cambridge neighborhood. At the end of the block is Kirkland Village, home to Savenor's Market (where world-famous chef Julia Child shopped in her Cambridge days) and The Wine and Cheese Cask (offering the area's best selection of wine and cheese from around the world). You will also find several restaurants (including Bergamot) and a very inviting cafe - The Biscuit. All this and more on your doorstep!
Just as inviting as the neighborhood is 60 Magnolia Avenue #3 itself. Located on the top floor, this 2007 renovated residence is part of a four-unit association, with all units owner-occupied.
Especially appealing is the layout of 60 Magnolia Avenue #3. The main living area is a very functional L-shape, with the living room and dining room and kitchen flowing together but still functioning as discrete areas. Ceiling height of 8.5' makes the rooms inviting - as does the gas fireplace in the corner of the dining room and visible from all principal rooms.
The kitchen at 60 Magnolia Avenue #3 features stainless steel appliances and granite countertops and has been impeccably maintained since being renovated. Everyone will LOVE the walk-in laundry closet off the kitchen, complete with full-size stack machines, included in the sale.
A real highlight of 60 Magnolia Avenue #3 is the expansive 16 x 9 covered deck accessible via a glass slider door off the kitchen (see above). To find a deck this size for a condo in Cambridge is RARE. As an added bonus, the deck is newly rebuilt in 2011!
Another appealing aspect of 60 Magnolia Avenue #3 is the separation of the bedrooms from the main living area. Both bedrooms and the full bath are off the central hall. The master bedroom is located at the end of the hall and apart from the rest of the residence - ideal for privacy. The master bedroom itself is well served by a big bay with oversized windows and a good-size closet with built-ins to maximize efficiency.
The second bedroom at 60 Magnolia Avenue #3 is as big as some master bedrooms in other condos in this price range. As for the full bath, it is also refreshingly large and served by a good-size vanity and shower-tub. A big window adjacent to the sink brings in lots of natural light.
Extras at 60 Magnolia Avenue #3 include central air conditioning, hardwood floors, and replacement windows. To top if off, there is a private storage room on the lower level, accessible via the back stairs.
