“Oasis” is an often overused adjective, but can be uniquely applied to 10 Hilliard Pl. An authentic New England farmhouse blended with a clean-lined mod addition, surrounded by trees & gardens in the heart of Harvard Sq, it is in a world of its own. A wonderful gathering spot, it was filled with family & friends, artists & academics. The neighborhood kids created secret worlds in the gardens, spent hours on the trampoline & made Hilliard Pl their playground. With more than 3,800 sq ft, the house is flexible & accommodating. The kitchen opens to the east terrace & garden and offers the perfect spot to enjoy a morning coffee. The west-facing living room, with its large bay & French doors, is where you’ll want to be in the afternoon & evening. There are 4 bedrooms, a study and loft upstairs, a finished LL level with a separate entrance & parking for 3-4 cars. As cities become denser & life gets more complicated, 10 Hilliard Pl remains a magical refuge in which to have a rich & full life.

    "Great neighborhood and people are very friendly! Lots of parks nearby and very tranquil and safe. Great youth baseball programs as well. "
  • Trulia User
    "This is a very family friendly area with various parks and green spaces. The local stores are part of the community and help foster independence for the neighborhood kids. "
  • Trulia User
    "Safe community. Family friendly & Dog friendly area. Near Fresh Pond so walking is pleasant. Could be more diverse"
  • Trulia User
    "Fresh Pond for long walks- VERY clean and well-maintained park with amazing scenery and an especially beautiful, grassy area for Cambridge-licensed dogs."
  • Trulia User
    "Quiet and clean neighborhood with a few restaurants and market stores closed by. Accesible by bus, bike and car. Lots of amenities on a walk distance. "
  • Trulia User
    "Quiet, close proximity to stores, boutiques, streets have sidewalks, bike lanes, and street parking is available and not congested as downtown. City setting but suburban feel, people walk their dogs, responsible for cleaning up after them, green spaces, colleges near by but never feel like you’re living near an animal house. Great quality of life. Nearby transit, plenty of blue bikes, etc. I absolutely love it here!"
  • Trulia User
    "There is a great mix of people and it is a very friendly and nice environment with access to playgrounds, toy store, market, parks, and Fresh Pond Reservation. "
  • Trulia User
    "A rare combo of urban amenities and culture -- walking distance to Harvard, excellent markets and galleries, a Blue Bikes station -- with a somewhat suburban feel: tree-lined roads, well-tended gardens, friendly neighbors. Even the on-street parking isn't as impossible as in most other parts of Cambridge. With the long-awaited completion of recent major public work, accessibility for most modes of transpo (not to mention the sewer infrastructure) is vastly improved."
  • Trulia User
    "It's a great location close to a bunch of squares and the Red Line."
  • Trulia User
    "There are some dog parks nearby and a good bike trail to walk on."
  • Trulia User
    "For parents, it's a nice part of town that you can easily get around in."
  • Trulia User
    "The commute can be a bit tough at times. Alewife gets very busy."
  • Trulia User
    "There is something about it that just makes me very happy. There is no other place like it."
  • Trulia User
    "Dog owners can walk their dogs around Harvard University, and there are parks too. But some parts can feel a little cramped."
  • Trulia User
    "Sometimes the traffic can be bad around Harvard, but it is usually good."
  • Trulia User
    "I love living in West Cambridge. Beautiful, safe,family-and pet-friendly neighborhood in a wonderful community."
  • Trulia User
    "We purchased a home in another area but will sorely miss this part of town. It is quiet, with great neighbors, and Fresh Pond is hands down one of the best places to walk the dog that I know of, beautiful and peaceful. I spend 4-6 days a week enjoying the views. The neighborhood is very convenient to the T, shops, and restaurants. Also with a short walk or bike ride you will be in Porter Sq, Davis Sq, or Harvard for all Cambridge has to offer. "
  • Trulia User
    "Great neighborhood - one of Cambridge's best, large lots, right next to Fresh Pond Reservation for recreation. Walk to libraries, stores, T, restaurants. Close to major routes (2, 3, 16, Mass Pike) for easy escapes from the city. "
