The Victorian at 44 Walker Street just north of busy, busy Cambridge's Harvard Square dates from 1880, and has been updated throughout: cast concrete counters in the kitchen, radiant heat in the main bedroom's spa bathroom, etc.
The real stamp of modernity, though, is the redone carriage house a stone terrace away from the main abode and its four fireplaces. The capacious space crowned by a clerestory includes a full bathroom, plus a loft that looks like an ideal yoga studio (the Gibson Sotheby's listing suggests that the carriage house might be used for "work or family" instead).
The whole shebang is asking $3,898,000. Forty-four Walker last sold in April 2005 for $1,550,000. Namaste.
