Built 1897
An 1890’s Shingle-style Victorian, 8 Highland St is a glorious house with amazing light & a beautiful setting on one of Cambridge’s best streets. Designed by renowned architects Hartwell & Richardson, and later restored by This Old House host Bob Vila for his family, it is expansive yet cozy. Balancing its original architectural character with modern comforts, the formal spaces on the main floor give way to a large welcoming kitchen, exquisitely restored windows ground every room & a large skylit family room makes perfect use of the former attic. The primary suite has 2 dressing rooms with private bathrooms, and 5 additional bedrooms each with its own bathroom. There is a wow factor to living on Highland St - with its beautiful houses knitted together with mature trees & manicured grounds - it defines serenity. And being close to Harvard Sq. & Huron Village, this special house has a unique combination of style, quality, history, and location, making it a wonderful place to call home!
