John Kenneth Galbraith's Hidden Hot Tub Up for Rent


The courtly one-time home of economist John Kenneth Galbraith near Harvard is on the rental market once more. This time last year it was asking $10,000.

Now the 4,500-square-foot manse wants $10,500 a month. For that, a tenant gets five bedrooms; six bathrooms (two halves); bones from 1905; a spot on the old Professors' Row (the term is used now only with the bitterest of irony, given the costs of housing near Harvard and the pay of most Harvard faculty); a bomb shelter; and, of course, a hidden hot tub and sauna. Go.
