Location: Cambridge, Mass.
The Skinny: Though adjacent to Boston, Cambridge, Mass. could hardly be referred to a bustling metropolis, making the well-read town a quiet yet accessible alternative to living in Boston. This six-bedroom Gambrel colonial enjoys one of the most serene settings in town, fronting on Longfellow Park. The park extends from the grand colonial once occupied by the poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow down to the Charles River, and only a handful of private homes enjoy park frontage. That might explain why this 4,600-square-foot manse commands such a premium over other Cambridge offerings. It's currently asking $4.2M.
