It is the basement floor of single house in a quiet and safe neighborhood, but at the same time very close to the town center with shops and restaurants, and very close to public transportation
(it takes about 40-50 min to get to Cambridge/Boston from the house, less with a bike or a car)
The house is shared with our family of 5 (parents and kids ages 12, 15 and 19 - now in college!), however our family lives on the 1st and 2nd floor.
This room is on the lower level and it is totally independent from our living area, however we share the area where the washer and dryer are.
The room has an independent entrance (with a door smaller than usual).
The room has no access to a full kitchen (but there is a large sink in the laundry room - see photos).
In the room there is a fridge/freezer, a microwave, a coffee maker, a toaster, a rice cooker, a slow cooker, an Actifry (http://tfalactifry.com/), a 19" digital TV and a stereo system.
The Actifry (check the website!) is a small appliance that allows to cook warm meals.
There is a large walk-in closet.
There is access to washer and dryer (which they are shared with us). All linens are provided.
There is an outdoor small patio in front of the entrance, with access to a charcoal barbeque grill.

15 minutes walk to bus 77 (the direct bus to Harvard Square) or bus 79 (another bus to Alewife).
15 minutes walk to bus 80 (the direct bus to Tufts University)
Easy access to the Minuteman Bike Path (10 minutes to Alewife, 20 minutes to Harvard Sq. by bike).
On-street parking available if you have a car.
