Wicked Cool Arlington 1BR w/ ALL UTILS INCLUDED + 2 PARKING SPOTS!

Unit Description: This is just the coolest place on the market right now! What a find! 1BR in Arlington close to Route 2, a 20 minute walk to Alewife or easy drive into Boston. ALL UTILITIES ARE INCLUDED! 2 parking spots + free laundry too. Bedroom is LARGE with, and this is no exaggeration, the largest living room you will see on the rental market. Just an incredible space. Super bright and sunny and awesome character.

Shared back yard, small front porch, and a garden to use for flowers or herbs. The kitchen is bright and sunny, with a dishwasher and gas range!

Again, all utilities INCLUDED (except cable/internet)! There is some ongoing work (paint and replacing a cabinet in the kitchen), but this place is just about the best apartment!

"Arlington is a really beautiful town that is huge and obnoxiously overpriced. Traffic from Arlington to Boston is ridiculous and in general the town is pretty boring."

"Arlington has easy access to the MBTA at convenient hours, esp during rush hour. It can very busy near Alewife and down through East Arlington to Route 2/Route 16. Plan ahead, as there are many public and private schools around, which contribute to pedestrian crossing and slower travel. Bike trail is incredibly helpful"

"Arlington, due to its location between Cambridge and Lexington, is often the spillover beneficiary of both of its more notable neighbors. Classic urban benefits (restaurant breadth, public transit) mingle with traditional suburban ones (public school quality, safety), creating a pretty unique environment. Housing prices are reflective. Akin to most of the Boston area, private transportation amenities and capacity are a bit 'last century' (or two). Parking rules are idiotic (allowed too close to driveways and intersections blocking sight lines, instigating the infamous 'bang a left'). Road conditions are often subpar and layout nonsensical due to the 'paved over cowpath' origins. The city (its too big to be a 'town') is becoming a bit more culturally mixed, though politics can be parochial. Continued assimilation by newcomers will create a truly heterogeneous, American city."

"The Morningside area is well-known to be among the best in Arlington. The streets are wide and wonderfully tree-lined, children frequently play on the streets, and there are many potlucks and block parties for getting to know your neighbors. The Winchester Country Club and 2 different playgrounds are all within a few blocks of this street. "
