Twenty-four Ash Street is one of those aged-on-the-outside-elegant-on-the-inside Victorians in and around Harvard Square in Cambridge (which is the model for the New Somerville, don't ya know?). The 4-BR, 3.5-BA house dropped on the rental market a little more than a week ago, becoming one of only two places in the People's Republic asking five figures a month.
The 3,200-square-footer wants $10,000 a month for its three fireplaces, private garden and parking for two. The only other Cambridge spread asking in that range is 30 Francis Avenue, which was the home of legendary economist John Kenneth Galbraith and which has been asking $10K a month for a while.
