OPPORTUNITY TIME!! This would need to be restored to a single family (current use was office space). Offering an amazing location facing the Cambridge Common. It's known as the Roger Fisher House & formerly the Red Cross Building. It was built in 1887 by architects Chamberlin and Whidden for a Harvard University physics instructor. It's a fine example of Neo-Georgian design, mixed with elements from the Colonial Revival & Queen Ann periods. Many updates have been made in the last 10 years, including: roof, gutters, chimney restoration/re-pointing, high efficiency heating system, updated HVAC, water heater, bathrooms and more. While it has been renovated over time, period detail still remains. It boasts 21 rooms, has an elevator for three levels, an exterior lift to the first floor and parking for approx. 6 cars. The basement has heat/AC and plenty of space for more offices, classrooms, or extra storage. Near Harvard Square, the T Red Line, restaurants, concert venues, etc.
