When looking for a new home, it's all about location, right? But deciding between all the neighborhoods in the Greater Boston area can be overwhelming. Enter Inman Square: an almost hideaway neighborhood that straddles the Cambridge/Somerville border. There's bars and cheap eats galore, and all the more crowded, tourist-stop squares (Harvard, Central, Kendall) are still within walking distance. 

Inman offers more than location too, like colorful townhouses that come equipped with everything you want in a home. Check out these listings currently up for grabs in Inman.

57 Dane Street, Unit 2

This townhouse gives you more bang for your buck than other neighborhoods could offer. At under $800,000, it has two beds, two-and-a-half bathrooms and two private balconies. Entertainers take note; you’ll also get a private yard with a large deck and two exclusive parking spots—rarities in any city. On the first floor, there's a dining room and living room, plus a kitchen with a picture window, granite counters, and stainless steel appliances. The entire second floor is reserved as a master suite, with a tiled spa tub, two walk-in closets, and a balcony overlooking the backyard. On the third floor, you'll find the other large bedroom and an office. From this home, you can easily walk to Harvard, Porter and Union Squares, or stay right in Inman.
