Welcome to my home at Alvah Kittredge Brownstone in the historic, friendly and diverse neighborhood of Fort Hill/Highland Park.
My 142 year-old, newly restored classic Boston Brownstone home has four equally unique bedrooms available in this 3 level penthouse apartment (see also Master Bedroom Suite, Modern Bedroom, & Loft Bedroom).
A well balanced blend of modern and historic. The bedroom is well designed for an individual or couple and ideal for long term stays. Plenty of storage to unload into the built-in closet, and drawers. 170sqft (15.7sqm).
Dedicated kitchen pantry (with blue personal cups, mugs, bowls, plates, pans and utensils), washer and dryer, fridge, kitchen, and living room.
Interaction with guests
I'm a social and hospitable host who loves to share his home with others. I was born and raised in Boston, went to university literally down the road at Northeastern and so with plenty of knowledge I would be more than happy to help. I work from home and so usually around if you ever needed anything. My mother lives in a separate apartment downstairs (so please feel free to say hi if you cross paths with her) and I stay at my girlfriend's across the park. So I'm always close by and available, but you can have your space as well.
Other things to note
The house is actually as it seems in the photos everyday; well maintained common spaces, so I simply ask guests to clean after themselves to leave the common space in order.
The bedroom is part of my 4 bedroom apartment, and shares a common bathroom with with my housemate and 1 other guest bedroom. (2 flights of stairs total to bedroom + 1 flight up to shared bathroom)
Our area is considered safe and quiet for Boston, but this is the city, and anything can happen anywhere at any time so I always like to tell people to have general common sense in travels in the whole city, that's all. We are walking distance to many good cafes, bars, restaurants down Tremont St past the T (metro station) and a ~$8 Uber ride to the nightlife of the Back Bay city center.

Born and raised in Boston, to parents from former Portuguese islands in the Atlantic ocean. I'm an international, global citizen who loves travel, food, cultures, languages, history, current events and much more. I'm a former biomedical engineer (cardiovascular, sports medicine) now working in residential real estate (investments, design & development, management) & loving it! I also spend time on issues I'm passionate on, one of which is education where I sit on the board of a school.
I love hosting guests in my home and getting to meet different people from all over the world and give them the best experience in my home that I look for when I travel all over on Airbnb. The engineer in me loves feedback, and to make improvements so please feel free to share your thoughts so in turn other guests will have an even better experience.
Fun fact: I studied Mandarin for 6 years and sadly forgot most of it, so I'd love to practice it with you if you speak it :)
