Fresh Pond Place is a townhouse condominium development of 56 units at the western edge of Cambridge, Massachusetts. Built in three phases beginning in 1980, the property abuts Huron Avenue and is directly across the street from the Fresh Pond Reservation. Fresh Pond Place is 10 minutes by car from Harvard Square and is minutes away from several convenient shopping centers and supermarkets. Connections to major road arteries, including Routes 2 and 16, Memorial Drive, Storrow Drive and the Massachusetts Turnpike (I-90), are excellent and the complex is served by several bus and trackless trolley lines that connect to the MBTA's Red line.
Although it is close to the city, Fresh Pond Place has the ambiance of a suburban oasis. Beautifully landscaped and artfully terraced, the brick walkways transport you quickly from one world to another. Flowering trees and rich ground cover invite you to enjoy the scenery at your leisure. Fresh Pond Place has a quiet tranquility that is rarely found this close to town. It is simply unique.
Among the many features of Fresh Pond Place is the large indoor pool, spa, and sauna. The units all feature greenhouse atriums in the kitchen area and skylights to achieve a modern, airy, naturally lit atmosphere. All units have indoor parking. Units typically have two outdoor decks, patios, or verandas. They also have fully equipped kitchens, laundry facilities, and central air conditioning. But perhaps the best thing about Fresh Pond Place is not the wonderful units, or the excellent facilities, but the fabulous park across the street.
Among the attractions of the Fresh Pond Reservation are the Golf course, Tennis and Basketball courts, Soccer and Baseball fields, and children's playground. All these are located directly across the street. A jogging track winds 2.5 miles around Fresh Pond and is a favorite of runners, walkers, bird watchers, cross country skiers and dog owners. It even connects to the Minuteman Bike Path. Wooded areas will make you think that you are anywhere but Cambridge.
Cambridge is one of the great educational centers of the world and has a number of excellent public and private grade schools, including the new Hagerty public school, located just 800 feet around the corner from Fresh Pond Place.
