How would you like to live in a $4M historic Civil-War mansion on a very quiet street very near Harvard Square, for a remarkably low rent...but in a high basement, and with some responsibilities for helping out its elderly owner in return? If so, this in your dream come true! Separate entrance to the side of house; wood-paneled entry hall with 6-paned window; pleasant LR with two 6-paned windows; ample bedroom with a 6-paned window, too; bright kitchen with white cabinetry; and a large bathroom with stall shower plus ample dressing space with big closet. This living space is half-below ground, but that does not feel oppressive, just quite comfortable. Tenant must reside full time and provide occasional services to the elderly owner, including shoveling snow, tending gardens, and moving trash barrels, plus pay 1/8 of the electric bills for the house. A personal interview with the owner MUST be scheduled. What a charming and unique opportunity, if you're the right person or couple!
