Located on one of Cambridge's finest streets, 5 Channing is a well-kept Colonial with a surprisingly fresh and modern layout, bursting with potential. Its lot is deep, with a large back yard and a concrete driveway leading to a one-car attached garage. The ivy-wrapped front porch opens to a first floor that features a living room with wood-burning fireplace, dining room, sunny kitchen with walk-in pantry and sliding glass doors overlooking the yard, and a delightful main bedroom suite. Upstairs are a good-sized home office, a lovely tiled bathroom, and three more bedrooms, one of them with private bathroom. From the home office, a comfortable stairway leads to a spacious and high-ceilinged attic. There is abundant storage space in the full-height basement, along with a fireplace and laundry room. Close to beautiful Brattle Street and the Charles River, 5 Channing Street is a warm and comfortable retreat from the city's bustle. Offers due Tuesday 10/4 at noon.
