Step through a clutch of flowering cherries and hornbeams to discover this home that is equal parts Royal Tenenbaums and Notting Hill, with a healthy dash of hygge thrown in. 52 Concord Avenue is a quintessentially Cambridge home - a grand yet human-sized 1873 Victorian mansard with the best of its origins preserved, and everything else imaginatively updated. Amble down the wisteria-wrapped staircase into the enormous arboretum-like yard. Or step to the side of the house and into the thoughtfully updated apartment, perfect as a guest suite or rentalor you could give your favorite artist or poet a place to live. Sited across from the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics, a quick walk into Harvard Square, and just over the hill from the butcher, the baker, and the cheese shop, this location allows for an almost European village life while retaining the best of its urban surroundings. You kind of have to see it to believe it. (Youll never get over your FOMO if you dont.)
