Treetop home on the most desirable "pond side" of Jamaica Plain. Steps from Centre Street's great restaurants & amenities, and right across the street from Jamaica Pond and the lush parks of the Emerald Necklace. Apartment is quiet and filled with light. Looking to rent for the entire summer, dates negotiable.
Welcome to my top floor brownstone home in the nicest part of Jamaica Plain. For being so close to the city, it's a truly idyllic spot, right in the treetops with peaceful garden views on both sides. There is bright sun throughout the day (skies permitting). The building is from 1906 and well-maintained, with lovely original details throughout, including stained glass, walnut moldings, and the original fireplace. This is a prime apartment in a prime location.
Master Bedroom with Queen bed. Second Bedroom with Double bed. Living Room, Dining Room, Music Room, Kitchen, Laundry, and Bathroom with tub. (Twin mattress also available for another guest). The price is lower than you would pay for an equivalent unit with modernized bathroom and kitchen. The kitchen has great appliances and good counter space, but is very simple. The bathroom does everything you need but is not especially lovely.
I also have a bike available for my guests - if you're interested please ask!
I'm a freelance musician and if you like I can tell you about interesting places to go in Boston. If I'm traveling, email me with any questions! If you have an immediate need, a friend of mine in the neighborhood can assist you.
Apartment is on the top floor, which means you walk up two flights of stairs.
Although it has been a very safe neighborhood for many years now, the building has a security system, easy to use.
Air conditioning units in master bedroom and living room. Ceiling fan in second bedroom.
Single mattress and queen size inflatable bed also available, but please discuss with me if you are having more than 4 people.
I have an "exotic pet" - a beautiful columbian boa. Ygdrasil lives in a secure terrarium, isn't poisonous, mostly hangs out in her hide-box, and doesn't need anything from you.
I have a 110-year-old Bechstein grand piano, recently rebuilt and restored. I welcome you to play but expect you to treat her with clean hands and good care.
No smoking in the apartment, even with the windows open.
No excessive cologne/perfume.
Take off your shoes on the landing and don't wear any outdoor shoes inside.
Don't take any food into the bedrooms.
No food or drinks in the music room.
Be considerate of the neighbors; no excessive noise, and keep quiet after 9pm.
Tell me if anything gets broken in the apartment.
No overnight guests without prior agreement between us.
Don't open Yggy's terrarium without prior agreement between us.
I live in Boston and sometimes live in New York City and Rio de Janeiro. I'm originally from England. I am a professional musician and I teach at Berklee College of Music. I love Brazilian music, nature, food (I'm a vegetarian), reading, bicycling and swimming.
