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 Custom Bedroom, Master Bedroom Suite, & Loft Bedroom).
A well balanced blend of modern and historic. The bedroom is well designed for a guest and ideal for long term stays. Plenty of storage to unload into the built-in closet, and drawers. 120sqft (11.2sqm).
Dedicated kitchen pantry (with green personal cups, mugs, bowls, plates, pans and utensils), fridge, washer and dryer, kitchen, living room.
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 Modern Bedroom is part of my 4 bedroom apartment, and shares a common bathroom next to it with two other guest bedrooms. (3 flights of stairs total)
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 common sense in travels in the whole city. 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.

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 apartment across the park. So I'm always close by and available, but you can have your space as well.
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.
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 :)
