Situated on a corner lot in West Cambridge, this 10-room home was one of the most expensive sales in the region last week, per the Multiple Listing Service. It also boasts a tie to poet Robert Frost.
The Queen Anne Victorian at 6 Riedesel Ave. was built circa 1887 in “Brewster Village,” a term the late poet coined for the neighborhood, according to the Cambridge Historical Society. Frost lived across the way at 35 Brewster St. for two decades, until his death in 1963.
On Friday, March 6, Gail Roberts, Ed Feijo, & Team of Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage sold the Riedesel Avenue home for $3,000,000. The 3,418-square-foot property on 0.13 of an acre is sandwiched between mature trees and features a dormer with four windows.
The well-kept home’s interior features cheery colors throughout, with wall coverings in colors such as peach and periwinkle. Just past the fireplaced entryway, visitors are greeted by citron walls and a wide staircase offering a small built-in bookshelf underneath. Beyond that, an alcove provides four floor-to-ceiling built-in bookcases and windows to the street. The living room and the dining room both sport fireplaces, with the eating area also offering pocket doors for added privacy. The kitchen, with adobe-colored tile floors and a pot rack, adjoins a solarium with mirrored built-in shelving and sliding glass doors to a deck with a pergola.
There are four bedrooms, three full bathrooms, and one half bathroom — most of which are found on the second level. Here, both the master and second bedroom offer fireplaces and en-suite bathrooms, while a third and smaller room could serve as a study.
A 30-foot great room and the fourth bedroom make up the top floor.
