Senné offering 23 Irving St., Cambridge; 150 year old gut renovated Mansard Victorian

May 15, 2020 - Construction Design & Engineering

Cambridge, MA Senné is offering for sale  23 Irving St., a Mansard Victorian home, originally built in 1870, in the Harvard Sq. neighborhood. With a full gut renovation completed in 2020, 23 Irving St. retains the elegant, traditional look of classic Cambridge homes but adds desirable modern amenities and features.

23 Irving St. is composed of two attached single-family-style homes. Unit 1 is the first of the pair to hit the market. Each unit has exclusive-use outdoor space and is located blocks from Harvard Yard. While the property is close to the dining, shopping, and entertainment scene in Harvard Sq., Irving St. itself is a quiet residential street that is rich in history. Previous Irving St. residents include E.E.Cummings and Julia Child, among other philosophers, poets, historians, and artists.



Instead of in-person open houses, Senné is offering alternative methods to viewing the property, including 3D interactive Matterport tours, high-definition photography, and virtual video tours upon request to provide clients with continued  exceptional service during these  unprecedented times.

Unit 1 of 23 Irving St. is a single-family-style home that opens up to a bright formal living space and a spacious dining area, illuminated by unique Hubbardton Forge Anemone light fixtures, that flows into the custom-designed eat-in kitchen with barstool seating. The kitchen features a Thermador appliance package, quartz countertops, and premium fixtures. The house is crafted with recessed lighting, tray ceilings, crown molding, and white oak hardwood flooring for a traditional look throughout. The home has four bedrooms, two of which have ensuites, and four and a half bathrooms. A media room, an oversized laundry room with laundry hookups, a front patio, yard, and two off-street parking spaces with electric vehicle charging capabilities complete this home.



“23 Irving St. is a remarkable offering on an iconic street in Cambridge. At Senné, we work with builders from project conception to completion to ensure the character of the historic home is preserved while also offering buyers a unique single-family-style home complete with the amenities the modern Cambridge buyer requires,” said William Senné, president and CEO of Senné.
