Rare opportunity to buy into the Washingtonian Condominium, located at the foot of Avon Hill and on one of Cambridge's premier and most architecturally significant residential streets. Built as a luxury apartment building in the late 19th century, the Washingtonian is distinguished by its glazed-brick facade; marble, mahogany, and maple entryways; high ceilings; oversized windows; iridescent-tile fireplaces; maple floors; and by its first-rate management. One of only four corner units, this bright and sunny home receives light from three directions. The electrical system was recently updated and, unlike many fine vintage properties, meets current electrical-code standards. A half mile from Porter Square, and less than a mile from the heart of Harvard Square. Just a few steps downstairs to the laundry or to the large, private storage unit. Charming common yard space and garden. Group bicycle storage available in 31 Linnaean.
