    The SpaceWelcome to my home at Alvah Kittredge Brownstone in the historic, friendly and diverse neighborhood of Fort Hill/Highland Park. The House: My 142 year-old, newly restored classic Boston Brownstone home has four equally unique bedrooms available in this 3 level penthouse apartment (see also Custom Bedroom, Modern Bedroom, & Loft Bedroom). The Room: A well balanced blend of modern and historic. The master bedroom suite is well designed for a couple or individual and ideal for short or long term stays. The suite has a spacious walk-in shower and bench seating, double floating vanity. Plenty of storage to unload into the built-in closet, and drawers. 220+sqft (20.4sqm) with every amenity possible, it feels like its own mini apartment in the apartment. Guest AccessDedicated kitchen pantry (with your own white personal cups, mugs, bowls, plates, pans and utensils), washer and dryer located next to the bedroom, fridge, kitchen, and living room. Interaction with GuestsI'm a social and hospitable host who loves to share his home with others. I was born and raised in Boston, went to university literally down the road at Northeastern and so with plenty of knowledge I would be more than happy to help. I work from home and so usually around if you ever needed anything. My mother lives in a separate apartment (so please feel free to say hi if you cross paths with her in the foyer) and I stay at my girlfriend's across the park. So I'm always close by and available, but you can have your space as well. The NeighborhoodLocated in historic Fort Hill (Highland Park), my home is in a wonderful & diverse urban residential/bedroom community. Steeped in history since the 1630, this hill has hosted figures such as several of the key founders of Harvard University, George Washington and Henry Knox during the Siege of Boston in the revolution, to the famous abolitionist William Llyod Garrison (whose home is close by and the water fountain in front of the house is designed in his image). After transforming into one of the nations first street car suburbs, now Fort Hill is one of the most sought after and up and coming residential neighborhoods in the city with a diverse community of young professionals, working class and long time residents. We are 2.7 miles (4.3km) from downtown, off the vibrant and hip Centre st in JP, and down Tremont st from some of the best restaurants in the city located in the South End. The neighborhood is a history lover or architects dream with every period represented, has a progressive and engaged group of residents where one of the world's leading experts in urban farming resides, lots of public spaces, urban wilds (including our wild turkeys), community gardens, and has become city's foremost leader in passive houses and energy positive homes. From Wiikipedia: "Today, Fort Hill is home to an ethnically and linguistically diverse community. Fort Hill has been recognized for its sizable population of residents with Irish, Puerto Rican, Dominican, German and Sub-Saharan African roots.[13] Over the last decade Fort Hill has experienced an influx of professionals, artists and students, many of whom attend Northeastern University, Massachusetts College of Art and Design or Wentworth Institute of Technology. Fort Hill is also often referred to as a neighborhood that is notable for having a high concentration of residents living with same-sex partners,[14][15] and has a history of its residents advocating for gay rights.[16]" Getting AroundLogan Airport: Take an airport shuttle bus from your terminal to the Airport T subway station (blue line). Travel in-bound to State T station where you will need to get off and switch to the orange line in-bound. Get off at Roxbury Crossing, take a right out of the station, cross Columbus Ave, and walk up the hill in 5 mins. T (subway/metro): The station is Roxbury Crossing and its the 3rd stop to Back Bay. Another 3 more stops form there takes you to Downtown Crossing. Hubway bike sharing: $6 for a 24 hour pass or $12 for a 72 hour pass. I highly recommend this as a way to discover the city. Right at the subway station outside you'll see these bikes and the station is located on Boston's longest bike and walking path, the Southwest Corridor Park. 10 mins to Back Bay, 25 mins to Harvard Square. All rides under 30 mins are free of any addition charges. Zipcar car sharing: There are 3 lots on the bottom of the hill off of Columbus Ave, 7 minutes away. Very convenient to use when you need a car to drive. Walk: 5-15 minutes walk to local resturants, bars and grocery store. 15 minutes walking distance to Longwood Medical Area, Northeastern University, Museum of Fine Arts and 25 minutes to Fenway. Boston is a walking city. Parking: Plenty of free on street non permitted parking usually right next to the house. Uber: a car service I use often as well, since it's very easy and very dependable compared to taxis which can unfortunately have terrible service. If you haven't used it yet I highly recommend you sign up and try it. With this promo code FAUXM you'll get a free $20 ride uber com/invite/fauxm Other Things to NoteThe house is actually as it seems in the photos everyday; well maintained common spaces. The master bedroom is part of my 4 bedroom apartment. It shares common areas with my housemate and other guests. Our area is considered safe and quiet for Boston, but this is the city, and anything can happen anywhere at any time so I always like to tell people to have general common sense in travels in the whole city, that's all. We are walking distance to many good cafes, bars, restaurants down Tremont St past the T (metro station) and a ~$8 Uber ride to the nightlife of the Back Bay city center.

    The SpaceFormerly a single-family brownstone for an executive of one of the many breweries that once populated the area, the building was transformed into two apartments during a total renovation, complete with all modern systems and amenities. Central heating and air keep the apartment comfortable. We occupy the upper three floors and the guest apartment is on the lower two. We sit at the far end of a small dead end street. The apartment is a 1BR duplex. The upper floor has a cook's kitchen with gas stove, dishwasher and disposal, prep island and granite counters. The living room has artisan maple floors that we rescued by pulling and relaying in combination with rosewood. A pullout sleeper with a tempur-pedic foam mattress allows accommodations for up to four guests. Down the stairs, you will find a tucked-away bathroom that is tiled in marble and granite, and has a jacuzzi tub. The bedroom is carpeted and replete with closet and drawer space. One can step outside for a breath of fresh air on the rear deck for exclusive use by guests. Cable TV and wireless internet are provided to help you enjoy your stay and stay connected. Guest AccessIf you bring your kids, the tramp outside might cure their boredom. Interaction with GuestsWe live in the building and are accessible most mornings and evenings. The NeighborhoodThe proximity to nearly every and anything in Boston and Cambridge. Getting AroundIt is less than a 5 minute walk to the MBTA's Orange Line which makes the rest of Boston easily accessible by public transportation. One can walk to the Longwood Medical Area, Northeastern or MFA in 15 minutes or less. Fenway is about a half hour on foot depending on your pace or a very inexpensive uber ride. For those traveling by car, you can park overnight or 2 hours during the day steps away from the house. Longer daytime parking is about 200 feet away. Other Things to Note$20 per adult per night past two guests. Kids incur no additional charge. Three night minimum starting April 1, though two night stays might be accommodated - feel free to inquire. If you need a Sox or Celtics hookup, the house has a season ticket holder. Feel free to inquire.

    The SpaceThis fully furnished room is part of our own apartment - a homey, beautifully furnished loft nestled between the artsy Jamaica Plain neighborhood and busy central Boston. It's large and well-laid-out for a single or a couple, with a comfy full-size bed, a sunny window, plenty of drawer space, and a little desk to work at. There's a good-sized window, and the bedroom door locks from the inside. Guest AccessGuests will share the rest of the apartment with us - a fully equipped kitchen (dishwasher, stove, fridge, French press coffee, etc), the double sinks in the bathroom, and everything else in the common spaces (all but 1 bedroom). The couches are really comfortable, there's super high-speed WiFi (Xfinity Blast) throughout the apartment - and a HUGE 60 inch television with basic cable, an AppleTV and Netflix! Interaction with GuestsMy husband and I are happy to help you find anywhere in the city you need to go, from entertainment to restaurants to grocery stores. We'll also lend you the access key to the laundry downstairs - which uses both coins and credit card. We're happy to chat and hang out or let you enjoy your privacy - whatever you prefer! The NeighborhoodThe location is perfect for seeing things in the city - only five minutes' walk to the Orange Line and ten to the Green Line, close to Whole Foods grocery, the beautiful Jamaica Pond, and the Sam Adams brewery! We have maps of the T and some of our favorite places in the apartment, so you'll have some ideas on where to go. Getting AroundWe are super close to the Roxbury Crossing stop on the Orange line, but also a lovely walk along a bike/pedestrian path all the way into town and the other way down to the pond and Jamaica Plain central! Biking is the best way to get around in Boston; we bike everywhere, so we highly recommend bringing bikes or using the Hubway bike share. For those with a car, parking is FREE on the street right by the apartment, with no need for a permit or anything! Other Things to NoteWe have a friendly little cat named Data - he LOVES new people! He's toilet trained so there's no litter box (or litter smell!).

    The SpaceThis beautiful apartment is nestled between the artsy Jamaica Plain neighborhood and busy central Boston. It's large and well-laid-out for a family, two couples, or whole sets of friends. It's a controlled access building - a code key for the outer door and a key for the interior one - safe and pleasant! The apartment has two full-size beds - one in each bedroom - and an extra full-size mattress that can be made up on the floor of one bedroom. We also have a very comfortable twin-sized air mattress that we make up to sleep a total of 7! One of the bedrooms doubles as an office, with a large glass desk and comfortable swivel chair The comfy leather sectional couch in the living room can sleep a guest or two (great for kids especially). A chair-and-a-half is a cozy nap spot. There's super high-speed WiFi (Xfinity Blast) throughout the apartment - and a HUGE 60 inch television with AppleTV, basic cable, an Xbox One, and Netflix! The fully equipped kitchen (dishwasher, stove, fridge, etc) has cookware, glassware, small appliances, and everything you need to cook and eat great food. Even if you won't be cooking much, fresh-ground coffee beans and big French presses make for cheerful mornings! The bathroom has spacious double sinks - there are three giant shelves of great books, plenty of throw blankets, airy windows ... basically everything you need to enjoy a vacation stay in Boston! There's also a card-operated laundry room in the basement of the building. Guest AccessThis is my personal home, but I live elsewhere when guests are staying - so you have all the benefits of a real home combined with the privacy you want! I'm happy to walk around the place and answer any questions as I show you where I've laid out the linens and supplies I have for you. I love sharing my beautiful home with new friends and guests! Interaction with GuestsWe'll meet you and show you around and answer any questions you might have! Check out my pictures, and drop me a line if you're interested or have any questions! I'm always happy to meet and talk to new people. :) The NeighborhoodThe location is perfect - only five minutes' walk to the Orange Line and ten to the Green Line - with a biking/walking path all the way into town, only twenty minutes on foot or ten by bike. Similar distances get you to Whole Foods grocery, the beautiful Jamaica Pond, and the Sam Adams brewery! We have maps of the T and some of our favorite places in the apartment.

For those with a car, parking is FREE on the street right by the apartment, with no need for a permit or anything! Other Things to NoteOne note: there is sometimes a cat in this apartment. He travels with us, so he won't be there when you're staying. We keep the place very clean (he's toilet trained, so there's never a litter box or any litter smell) and vacuum everything right before guests arrive--however, if you're VERY allergic to cats, you might want to bring some allergy medicine just in case!

Interaction with GuestsI'll meet you and get you settled in to the apartment you'll be sharing with me. I'll probably see you at breakfast but how much we interact will depend on how much we are both home at the same time.

Getting AroundThe Orange and Silver Lines are a 10 minute walk from the house. There is on-street car parking and in-house bike parking available. Bike sharing (hubway) and car sharing (zipcar) stations are within easy walking distance - which to me means within a mile. From the airport to the house takes about 30-40 minutes by public transport. A cab from the airport will take 15 minutes and cost about US$30. If the weather is fine, the shuttle boat from the airport to Aquarium or Long Wharf is a beautiful way to enter the city. Other Things to NoteIf in doubt, ask me. Smokers are welcome to smoke outside.

I will check in periodically to make sure all is well and you have everything you need. This room is on the first floor of a two-apartment house. I live on the second floor. Sometimes I organize potluck dinners for all the guests in the house. It all depends on who is in the house, how amenable they are to getting together, and how much time we have.

The Museum of Fine Arts, Isabella Stewart Gardner museum, Northeastern U, MASSArt, and other Fenway colleges as well as Longwood medical area and Harvard Medical School are 1.5 miles away. The BU Medical Center is 1.4 miles away and National Center of Afro-American Artists is .8 miles away. Other Things to NoteJe peux parler un peu de français. Smokers are welcome to smoke outside. You'll be happy here if: 1) you are okay with a really old house. It has some of its original 110-year-old detail and that can be a good or bad thing, depending on your perspective. 2) you are open minded. 3) you understand that this is a quirky private older home and not a homogeneous hotel or newly constructed McMansion. 4) you are okay with cats. They do not live in this apartment (unless you want them to) and they will certainly not enter your bedroom but I have recently begun caring for a semi-feral colony in the neighborhood and some of them are socializing well so I hope to find good homes for them. (If you fall in love with a cat, take it home!) They may greet you (or run away from you) on the porch.

    The SpaceOne bedroom, one bathroom apartment just a few steps from the Orange Line. Free parking might be found on the street. This unit is on the first floor. BEDROOM: One QUEEN BED with a brand new mattress, along with all the other necessary furnishings. The bed in the pictures is the old full bed, I have not had the chance to take new pictures since upgrading the bed. The newer mattress is from Tuft and Needle, I think it's a very comfortable mattress (they're not paying me to say that ;) ) There is a 32" TV in the bedroom, it does not have cable service, but there is an HD antenna that gets some of the major channels. There's also an HDMI cable, feel free to use your own computer with the TV. KITCHEN: Gas stove, refrigerator, toaster, and microwave, Keurig coffee maker with coffee, and enough dishes and utensils (no dishwasher). There is also seating for two at the counter. My favorite things about the kitchen are the granite countertops, stainless steel stove, and the large sink! The backdoor in the kitchen just leads to a fire escape. Most important detail about the kitchen: There is a wine bottle opener! Another thing you don't need to pack. NO CENTRAL HEATING OR AC: This apartment currently does NOT have central heating, space heating details are farther down in the listing, you must read and agree to them. There is only one AC, it's in the bedroom window during the summer months (it's not in the photos). BATHROOM: Has a sink, mirror, toilet, and shower stall. I provide enough towels as well. The bathroom is small, but it is usable. It works for a few days while you're visiting. SIZE: Keep in mind that this is a very dense low-rise neighborhood. If you're accustomed to lots of sprawling space, this listing could feel small to you. That said, most apartments in the city are just as small. BUILDING: Built in 1914 (not uncommon for Boston), this building is made out of Roxbury Puddingstone. Roxbury Puddingstone is the State Rock of Massachusetts. Several historic churches in Boston are made out of Puddingstone, but this building is one of only a few residential buildings in the world made out of this rock. WIFI: There is wifi, I've never had any serious problems with it. That said, I cannot guarantee the fidelity of the internet connection. Comcast is the ISP, I take no responsibility for any unlikely internet connection problems that could occur that are out of my control. ACCESS: See the "Guest Access" section of this listing. Guest AccessThere is a locked room in the apartment, the owner of the building uses it for her storage closet. I do not have access to it. There is another locked door that just goes to the steps to the basement, there isn't anything down there, just the water heater. The back door in the kitchen is just a fire escape, it cannot be used as a deck or patio. Interaction with GuestsI will try to meet you when you check-in. If I can't I will leave the keys in a lockbox and send you the details. I live in the same building, my unit's entrance is around back, so if you need anything, just let me know. I will respect your privacy and stay out of your way, but I'm also happy to give advice to travelers as well. Please keep all communications with me on the Airbnb message system. The NeighborhoodMISSION HILL: The best part about Mission Hill ("The Hill") is its proximity to all the best places in Boston. Fenway Park and the Museum of Fine Arts are a within a twenty minute walk. The Hill has an authentic old Boston feel without a long commute. Public Transportation is great in Mission Hill. My listing's address has a 100/100 transitscore and a 90+ walkscore. LOCAL BUSINESSES: I'm much more likely to accept a guest that expresses an interest in spending some time in the neighborhood. A few of the best local spots are Penguin Pizza, The Squealing Pig, Fuentes Market, and Mike's Donuts (not to be confused with Mike's Pastry in North End). COST: Boston is the 3rd most expensive city per square foot in the US. Your money will not go very far here compared to the rest of the North America. There are more people looking for places to stay in Boston than there are available accommodations, so unfortunately that means people get priced out. Mission Hill can be a great value neighborhood, it is less expensive than many other neighborhoods, yet the city center and other sites are still very easily accessible. The most expensive times to visit Boston are Marathon weekend and May thru October. UNIVERSITIES: There are a plethora of schools in Boston and the surrounding towns. Mission Hill is known for its large student and medical professional populations, as Northeastern University, Harvard Medical School, the Fenway Colleges, and the Longwood medical institutions are adjacent to Mission Hill. NEXT DOOR NEIGHBORS: The apartment building is neighbored by a Dunkin Donuts on one side, and a bodega on the other side, which has some basic items. Both of these can be very useful for your visit to Boston! ERRANDS: Brigham Circle is about a 5-10 minute walk away, there you will find a Stop and Shop grocery store, a few banks, and a Walgreens pharmacy. Come with an open mind and a glass-half-full attitude. Be respectful! This is a great neighborhood. I've lived in Mission Hill for several years, and have seen the area gentrify a lot. Airbnb has a great neighborhood profile for Mission Hill, feel free to check it out! Getting AroundMBTA "The T" INFORMATION ORANGE LINE: This apartment is about a one minute walk from the Orange Line. Downtown Crossing can be reached in 10-15 minutes. Back Bay Station is three stops inbound. This is the best option for quick and easy travel to the city center. GREEN LINE: The E Branch of the Green Line is a 5-10 minute walk away. This segment of the Green Line is a street level train. SIXTY SIX: The 66 bus to Harvard Square stops just across the street from the Orange Line station. This bus is the best option if you'd like to visit Harvard Square, Coolidge Corner, Brookline, or Allston. I think it's the most scenic bus route in Boston. Don't be afraid to take the bus! PARKING INFORMATION (READ THIS THOROUGHLY IF YOU'RE DRIVING HERE): Parking is a finite resource in Boston. I do not want guests that are only interested in staying here just because of the parking. Please be aware that non-residents who park on my street make it harder for my neighbors to find a spot near their home. Leave your car at home, you don't need it here. I DO NOT recommend bringing a car to Boston, but parking is free on the street. I can not guarantee a parking space, but finding a spot is usually not a problem. I've never had a guest that was unable to a find spot. You can park on either side of the street as long as you aren't blocking something. That said, I take no responsibility for any unlikely parking problems that could arise. You park at your own risk. April-November, the city does street cleaning on alternating sides of the street on Wednesday mornings (8am-12pm). Only one side of the street is cleaned each Wednesday, and the other side is cleaned the next Wednesday. All you have to do is move your car to the side that isn't being cleaned before 8am on Wednesday. There is no street cleaning December-March. No parking is allowed on the street if the city declares a "Snow Emergency", this only happens if there is a severe snowstorm. Be smart and don't leave valuables in the car. If you will be driving in, or if you will need parking, please let me know in your message. Also, be aware that hotels in Boston usually charge extra for parking. Other Things to Note1. As mentioned above, there is a locked room in the apartment, the owner uses it for her storage closet. There's another locked door that just goes to the stairs to the unoccupied utility area in the basement. 2. I will take your trash out every 2-3 days (if your stay is longer than 3+ days). I must do this in order to keep the space clean and unwelcoming for pests. I will try to do it when you're not inside. 3. I live in an accessory unit in the same building, It's around back. I have my own entrance through the back of the building. 4. The gap between the fridge and the sink/counter is somewhat narrow. Average-size people have no problem at all walking through this area. However a very large person might not fit through this gap so easily. Someone who needs two airplane seats is probably too big to comfortably walk between the fridge and the counter. 5. This place is a good fit for medical professionals visiting Longwood Medical Center. Or a tourism traveler looking for a convenient and low-key/low-frills place to stay in Boston. This is not a good place for someone looking to have a rowdy weekend. But by all means, enjoy Boston to the fullest while you're here. I can tell you with much certainty that most apartments in Boston are fairly low-frills, so if you need frivolous luxuries while you're visiting Boston, this place may not be for you. 6. Please read this entire listing. When you message me, please include "I am fine with staying in Mission Hill" in your message so I know that you have read the listing. Expectations are important for a successful trip, and I think it's essential that guests have a good understanding of the place and the neighborhood. There are a few other things that I want you to include in a message, so make sure you read all of this listing very carefully. Also, if you spot any typos in this listing, please let me know so I can fix it! 7. If you are staying in the colder seasons (after October), please be aware that the heating system is fan-forced electric wall heaters. The electric heaters can warm up the place very fast, but for safety reasons it cannot be left on unattended or at night. I will provide an electric heated mattress pad for nighttime comfort. This isn't a great place for someone who needs to stay in a space that's always heated. You will note that "Heating" is not selected on the amenity list, as this listing should only be heated when it's occupied and being used. 8. Put your best foot forward when using Airbnb! Have a complete profile and tell me a little about what's bringing you to Boston. If your reservation is for two people, please include the first name and age (or an age range, i.e. "mid 30's") of BOTH guests in your first message as well. Airbnb provides hosts with limited information about guests, and I get more requests than I can handle, so I'm much more likely to accept a guest who tells me a little about themselves and their trip. There's nothing worse than a lackluster message! 9. Check-in time is 3pm or anytime later. I can only be flexible with an earlier check-in if the guest before your reservation is departing early. Check-out time is 11am, the turnover process begins promptly at 11:01am to ensure the place is ready for the next guests. Sometimes I can hold bags after Check-out if needed, but I can't guarantee I'll be around to do so. 10. I highly recommend that you purchase travel insurance. I cannot give refunds due to delayed flights, visa problems, illnesses, or anything else like that.

      The SpaceBuilt in the 1890s the house is full of Victorian-era character including wide hallways, well apportioned rooms, and 4 varieties of stunning parquet floors on the ground floor. There are 5 beds (1 king and 4 queen) in 5 separate bedrooms, which includes a futon queen on the floor in the "TV room" on the second floor. Guest AccessGuests will have access to food, spices, and anything in the refrigerator and kitchen. In addition guests can use the stereo system with a turntable and a solid collection of vinyl records. Interaction with GuestsEmail and text interaction is best b/c I will be out of the country for this stretch. I will provide a local contact in case the guest runs into issues. The NeighborhoodThe house sits on the Roxbury/JP border on a quiet street. We are a few blocks from the Stony Brook Orange line T and also from the brewery complex with Ula Cafe and Bella Luna and the Sam Adams brewery. Lastly we are only two blocks from the Southwest Corridor Bike Path that takes you right into downtown. It's a perfect place both in terms of convenience and peacefulness. Getting AroundYes the Orange Line is a few blocks away. Other Things to NoteThe back deck is great for hanging out and/or summer dinners. We also dine in the funky open air garage, the tops of whose walls are covered with flowering plants.

Rent includes: furnished room, bed linens and towels, electricity, gas, heat, hot water, wifi, and a kitchen stocked with all necessary accoutrements for cooking (guests provide their own food). Bathroom is shared as are sitting room and kitchen. Room has a queen size bed. Closet is small. Convenient to the Pierre Lallement/Southwest Corridor bike path; 10 minute walk to the Orange Line on the subway or the Silver Line to Downtown. The city center, airport, and major hospitals are all easily accessible by public transport. The Museum of Fine Arts, Isabella Stewart Gardner museum, Northeastern U, MASSArt, and other Fenway colleges as well as Longwood Medical Area and Harvard Medical School are 1.5 miles away. The BU Medical Center is 1.4 miles away and National Center of Afro-American Artists is .8 miles away. Je peux parler un peu de français! Guest AccessGuests have a private bedroom and share a bathroom, sitting room, and kitchen. Guests have access to implements for cooking but must provide their own food. There is a coin operated laundry in the basement: $1 per wash/$1 per dry. In summer, spring and fall, guests are welcome to sit on the front porch or in the back yard. Interaction with GuestsYou'll live in an apartment on the first floor of my home - I live on the second floor. I'll meet you when you arrive to get you settled in and then check in regularly to make sure you have everything you need. The NeighborhoodArchitecturally and geologically interesting; historic, residential, and quiet neighborhood with a racially, ethnically, and economically diverse population. Formerly, the "Boston Highlands", the neighborhood is now called Highland Park or Fort Hill and is on a hill. Getting AroundRoxbury Crossing on the Orange Line and Dudley Square on the Silver Line are each a 10 minute walk from the house. There is on-street, permit free car parking and in-house bike parking available. Hourly bike rentals available nearby from (URL HIDDEN) Several Zipcars within walking distance. From the airport to the house takes about 40 minutes by public transport. A cab from the airport will take 15 minutes and cost about US$30. In fine weather the water shuttle from the airport is a stunning way to enter the city (otherwise you come in through a tunnel). It costs US$10 one way and once you reach Aquarium or Long Wharf, you get on the T, our subway. Other Things to NoteYou'll be happy here if: 1) you are okay with a really old house. It has some of its original 110-year-old detail and that can be a good or bad thing, depending on your perspective. 2) you are open minded. 3) you understand that this is a quirky private older home and not a homogeneous hotel or newly constructed McMansion. 4) you are okay with cats.

      The SpaceWelcome to my home at Alvah Kittredge Brownstone in the historic, friendly and diverse neighborhood of Fort Hill/Highland Park. The House: My 142 year-old, newly restored classic Boston Brownstone home has four equally unique bedrooms available in this 3 level penthouse apartment (see also Custom Bedroom, Master Bedroom Suite, & Loft Bedroom). The Room: A well balanced blend of modern and historic. The bedroom is well designed for a couple or individual and ideal for long term stays. Plenty of storage to unload into the built-in closet, and drawers. 120sqft (11.2sqm). Guest AccessDedicated kitchen pantry (with green personal cups, mugs, bowls, plates, pans and utensils), fridge, washer and dryer, kitchen, living room. Interaction with GuestsI'm a social and hospitable host who loves to share his home with others. I was born and raised in Boston, went to university literally down the road at Northeastern and so with plenty of knowledge I would be more than happy to help. I work from home and so usually around if you ever needed anything. My mother lives in a separate apartment (so please feel free to say hi if you cross paths with her) and I stay at my girlfriend's across the street. So I'm always close by and available, but you can have your space as well. The NeighborhoodLocated in historic Fort Hill (Highland Park), my home is in a diverse urban residential/bedroom community. Steeped in history since the 1630, this hill has hosted figures such as several of the key founders of Harvard University, George Washington and Henry Knox during the Siege of Boston in the revolution, to the famous abolitionist William Llyod Garrison (whose home is close by and the water fountain in front of the house is designed in his image). After transforming into one of the nations first street car suburbs, now Fort Hill is one of the most sought after and up and coming residential neighborhoods in the city with a diverse community of young professionals, working class and long time residents. We are 2.7 miles (4.3km) from downtown, off the vibrant and hip Centre st in JP, and down Tremont st from some of the best restaurants in the city located in the South End. The neighborhood is a history lover or architects dream with every period represented, has a progressive and engaged group of residents where one of the world's leading experts in urban farming resides, lots of public spaces, urban wilds (including our wild turkeys), community gardens, and has become city's foremost leader in passive houses and energy positive homes. From Wiikipedia: "Today, Fort Hill is home to an ethnically and linguistically diverse community. Fort Hill has been recognized for its sizable population of residents with Irish, Puerto Rican, Dominican, German and Sub-Saharan African roots.[13] Over the last decade Fort Hill has experienced an influx of professionals, artists and students, many of whom attend Northeastern University, Massachusetts College of Art and Design or Wentworth Institute of Technology. Fort Hill is also often referred to as a neighborhood that is notable for having a high concentration of residents living with same-sex partners,[14][15] and has a history of its residents advocating for gay rights.[16]" Getting AroundLogan Airport: Take an airport shuttle bus from your terminal to the Airport T subway station (blue line). Travel in-bound to State T station where you will need to get off and switch to the orange line in-bound (to Forest Hills). Get off at Roxbury Crossing, take a right out of the station, cross Columbus Ave, and walk up the hill in 5 mins. T (subway/metro): The station is Roxbury Crossing and its the 3rd stop to Back Bay/Copley. Another 3 more stops form there takes you to Downtown Crossing. Hubway bike sharing: $6 for a 24 hour pass or $12 for a 72 hour pass. I highly recommend this as a way to discover the city. Right at the subway station outside you'll see these bikes and the station is located on Boston's longest bike and walking path, the Southwest Corridor Park. 10 mins to back bay, 25 mins to Harvard Square. All rides under 30 mins are free of any addition charges. Zipcar car sharing: There are 3 lots on the bottom of the hill off of Columbus Ave, 7 minutes away. Very convenient to use when you need a car to drive. Walk: 5-15 minutes walk to local resturants, bars and grocery store. 15 minutes walking distance to Longwood Medical Area, Northeastern University, Museum of Fine Arts and 25 minutes to Fenway. Boston is a walking city. Parking: Plenty of free on street non permitted parking usually right next to the house. Uber: a car service I use often as well, since it's very easy and very dependable compared to taxis. If you haven't used it yet I highly recommend you sign up and try it. With this promo code "FAUXM" you'll get a free $20 ride uber com/invite/fauxm Other Things to NoteThe house is actually as it seems in the photos everyday; well maintained common spaces. The modern bedroom is part of my 4 bedroom apartment, and shares a common bathroom with two other guest bedrooms. Our area is considered safe and quiet for Boston, but this is the city, and anything can happen anywhere at any time so I always like to tell people to have common sense in travels in the whole city. We are walking distance to many good cafes, bars, restaurants down Tremont st past the T (metro station) and a ~$8 Uber ride to the nightlife of the Back Bay.
