Village living at its finest! This gracious and sunny home is set on a small leafy street, around the corner from Cambridge’s legendary Formaggio Kitchen. In this idyllic slice of Huron Village, residents know the butcher, the baker, and the cheesemonger by name; free range kids rule the sidewalks and backyards; and a few minutes spent on the front stoop is the quickest way to catch up on the day’s news. For years, the calm and dignified residential exterior of 38 Blakeslee has belied its double identity as both a gracious home for modern living, and as the setting for a magical preschool for lucky Cambridge kids (the author’s four kids included). A new owner will have the opportunity to customize this wonderful home to their own purposes, and with ample space, no compromises need to be made. Double home offices? A yoga or Peloton studio in the bright and airy sunroom? An expansive makerspace in the unfinished basement? You can have all of it. When the dog needs walking or legs need to run, Fresh Pond Reservation is just down the street with miles of verdant paths to explore. One mile to both Harvard and Porter Squares; easy access to Route 2 and destinations beyond.

LOCATION / Huron Village
38 Blakeslee Street
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.
