A rare single-family home in a great location on the Medford/Somerville line, less than 1/4 mile to the new Ball Square MBTA Green Line station, and Tufts University. Unique home has 5 bedrooms and 2 full baths, with no shortage of private space for both work and school-from-home. A large living room and dedicated dining room adjoin a fantastic kitchen, with lots of prep room and storage, stainless steel appliances and an oversized farm sink. Two bedrooms and full bath on the main level are perfect for guest rooms, home office, play room and/or remote schooling. Upper level features larger master bedroom with cozy reading nook and dual walk-in closets, plus two additional bedrooms and a spacious ceramic tiled full bath. Basement rooms are heated and great bonus areas, ready for expansion. Nothing to do here but move in and enjoy - roof, windows, heating system, AC condensers, and tankless HW are all less than 5 yrs old. Exterior features vegetable beds as well as a wonderful patio and pergola entwined with edible grapes and blackberries - an oasis in the city indeed.
