MLS Number 72692003

  • Condo or Co-op
  • Year Built 1960
  • Bedrooms 3

For buyers seeking quality, location & service in Cambridge, one often has to take on significant renovations. Not so with this beautifully redone 3-bed duplex in one of Cambridge's premier luxury buildings. The owners purchased it in '18 and set out to create a space where they could retire in comfort, welcome their grandchildren & enjoy all Cambridge has to offer. They worked to preserve the integrity of the original modernist design while bringing it up to the highest modern standards. They redid the kitchen & baths, installed new windows, replaced & refinished floors, insulated walls, added laundry, and modernized the plumbing & electrical. The result is an inviting & elegant home with light-filled spaces with access to Bradbury's private garden & the many benefits of Riverview Condominiums. An unexpected professional opportunity has taken them away leaving behind the chance for you to take their place & make this beautifully renovated, extremely rare Cambridge property your own.
