Tucked away off a quiet street you’ll discover this single-family townhouse where cottage and loft styles meet. Built in the 1980s by the well-known architect team Bell and Fandetti, this townhouse enclave at 42 Cogswell is unique—outdoor and indoor spaces are equally wonderful. A large private yard is surrounded by lush greenery providing privacy and a tranquil retreat. The open loft-style interior integrates the common living spaces with a two-story mezzanine-level master bedroom suite. On the first floor, you'll find two light and airy bedrooms with sliding-glass doors that open onto the private yard. The three-level configuration allows for great separation of space and makes clever use of the ample square footage. Sited equidistant to both Porter and Davis Squares, this location is a quick walk to the Red Line train, commuter rail, and acclaimed restaurants. Deeded parking is included with easy on-street parking for guests or a second car. And no monthly condo fees.
