Our Opinion: You’ve been searching in the Harvard/Yale area for just the right spot to put down your roots–we hear you. Wander these tree-lined streets day or night and you are bound to feel good. No…elated. It is just that simple. The manicured landscapes, the stately brick abodes, the well-kept walkways–it’s a dreamy little nook of the city that harkens back to a time when kids played outside and dinner was served promptly at 6pm. This particular bricked beauty is heralding all of our favorite facets of this vintage-feeling neighborhood, plus enough updates to make us swoon (and not only do we think this spot is special, but so do our friends at the Utah Heritage Foundation, who featured this beauty in the 2015 Historic Homes Tour). Think: modern conveniences, like updated kitchens and baths and a finished basement, but with all the historic, old school charm to keep you feeling warm and fuzzy (exposed brick, a wet bar, and a two car garage? Unheard of). You’ll be bathing in natural light over brunch, due in no small part to those floor-to-ceiling windows, and the well-manicured backyard is simply begging for a few close friends and a glass of wine around the fire. Should you long to go out for a bite, Eggs in the City and Sea Salt are but a skip away, but really, anywhere is walkable when the streets are this neat. Any way you slice it, both home and neighborhood are sweet as pie.
