LOCATION / Huron Village
2 Waterman Road
Cambridge, MA 02138
Huron Village - the only West Cambridge neighborhood with a commercial center of its own - is a well-preserved, stroller-friendly, liberal-artsy hilltop village, where specialist foodie markets (fishmonger, cheesemonger, butcher, bread baker), independent bookstores, mid-century modern furnishings, and Finnish design cluster together to offer an almost European environment for daily errand-going. The south side of Huron Avenue features large, distinctive wooden houses, many with backyards and gardens, and the north side is home to many turn of the century multi-family homes, now mostly converted to condominiums owned by a diverse range of young to older professionals, lifelong Cambridge residents, and families of all stripes.
