Looking for a quintessential Harvard Square single-family that enjoys all the perks of this iconic locale without being too in-the-middle-of-it-all?

Look no farther than 18 Craigie Street in Cambridge, which benefits from the just-off-Brattle Street cachet while being stashed away from the hustle and bustle, among mature plantings and private green space.

The 1920s home, immaculately and tastefully kept and updated, is a welcoming property on four levels and just under 3,600 square feet that exudes the warmth of a bygone era and a cozy traditional footprint. The home allows for impressive entertaining in the grand, 25-foot living room with walls of built-ins and fireplace, as well as the chic dining room. From there, an upgraded kitchen with integrated appliances offers tons of custom storage and a Sub-Zero fridge.

On the second level, the primary suite boasts a study with built-in bookcases, a separate dressing room with custom organization, and a bath with radiant heat flooring. Two more bedrooms on this level share a hall bath, and there is a bonus fourth bedroom on the home’s third level with an en-suite bath. Use this space as a den, quiet home office, or as guest accommodations.

A refined family room with built-in shelving and a separate office area on the lower level adds even more space for spending time as a family, entertaining, or kicking back in style.

For more information about the home, contact Gail Roberts, Ed Feijo & Team with Coldwell Banker Realty – Cambridge, 617-844-2712.
