Description for 139 Oxford Street #2 Cambridge, MA 02140
The former residence of prolific author and poets-poet, May Sarton. Sarton wrote nestled in the trees of a quintessentially Cambridge home - a grand yet human-sized 1873 Victorian mansard. She wrote about identity, her epoch, the particulars of her happy home, the joy of gardening, the necessity of quiet and solitude amid chaos. Her work was hailed as “calm, cultured and urbane” and the same could be said of her former address, some 60 years later. The best parts of her residence have been honored and preserved and everything else has been imaginatively updated. A jade-green entryway twinkles and beckons to a stately set of stairs that twist upward to reveal a flat with 10 ft ceilings flat and 21 oversize windows — plus, a singular feature so difficult to find, most residents of Agassiz chide it as the stuff of urban legend: 2 deeded parking spots. Sited at the cusp of Harvard’s campus, the neighbourhood vibe is a mash-up of welcoming European village and high-culture urban convenience
