We have a large, comfortable family home in Lexington, MA, located about 10 miles from Boston and Cambridge, MA. It was built in the 1870's, but has modern plumbing, electricity, updated kitchen, etc. There are six bedrooms on the second floor, three full baths, two half-baths, an office, kitchen, dining room, TV room, and music room. In summer months, there is a screen-in porch and deck for relaxing outdoors. It is located in a lovely, friendly neighborhood.
We are willing to exchange cars, as well.
Lexington is a small town located about 10 miles west of Cambridge/Boston, MA. Our town offers dining, cinema, coffee shops, some retail, and a bike path for running/biking. Lexington has a public pool, if that's of interest to you.
You can access Boston and/or Cambridge by car/bus/train. Boston and Cambridge offer a wide variety of cultural features - art museums, theatre, Museum of Science (great for kids), high-end shopping, restaurants, etc.
We are also about a 45-minute drive from beautiful beaches. The NH White Mountains are about 1.5 hours away, and NYC is a four-hour drive.
We are a family of four - Jim (59) is a software security specialist; Lisa (54) does office management and sales operations for a French computer manufacturer. Children: Bryn (girl) will be 16 is August; Reed (boy) will be 13 in July.
We have done six previous exchanges (in US and abroad), all superbly successful.
We have a very sweet resident kitty, who is very calm and low maintenance. We would appreciate it if you could feed her while you're here.
