Where we want to go
Description of our house
Perched on the top two floors of a two-family home (quiet and accommodating tenants on first floor) atop historical Prospect Hill, our home is light and airy. Three decks offer exquisite views of Boston, the Bunker Hill Monument, and the Blue Hills. The living room, dining room, and kitchen flow into one another on the main floor. The modern kitchen offers a butler's pantry and island with seating. Wood floors and casual décor throughout make upkeep simple and are ideal for kids and pets. A fenced yard holds vegetable patches, a kiddie pool, and grill area. We have a cat who comes in and out at will and requires minimal attention.

Pick out your downtown destination from the deck and reach it in under three miles, take a quiet day in the neighborhood at the hilltop playground and park just one block away, or reach highway 93 in five minutes and head north or south for the seashore, hiking, and more history. Historic Prospect Hill is just above Somerville's Union Square with a vibrant blend of busy cafés and ethnic markets. One mile to Harvard Square.
Something about ourselves
We are Keja, Matthias, and Lucca, an academic couple and a 7-year old boy. Keja and Matthias are both English professors who love to cook and hike in our spare time. Matthias's family lives in Switzerland and Keja has spent several years living in France; we'll be spending some part of our trip visiting friends and family but would like to have a place to call home, to be still, relax, and get to know a neighborhood. We completed our first exchange last summer and had a lovely time.
