Building & History

This Mansard-roofed Victorian beauty, built in 1873, occupies a quiet corner in one of Cambridge's most desirable neighborhoods. On the National Register of Historic places, Garfield Street is an architectural showcase of single-family Queen Anne houses. It has a strong sense of neighborhood while convenient to public transportation, shops, restaurants, Harvard Square, and Porter Square. The only Mansard-roofed house on the street, The Garfield predates its neighbors. The home originally stood at 119 Oxford Street and was moved to 81 Garfield Street in 1875. In 2016, a gut level renovation created two spacious, classic townhomes that bring modern systems and sophistication to grand historic architecture.
