Looking for a dose of tranquility without losing the convenience of the city? This townhouse at 59 Regent St. in Cambridge’s Porter Square offers a bit of both. 

The sprawling 2,480-square-foot unit has two bedrooms, two full bathrooms, and one half bathroom. It hit the market March 1 for $2,750,000. 

“​​It’s so rare to find something with that much space, especially in a lot of the a lot of the newer inventory that’s coming on,” said Mike George, an agent with Gibson Sotheby’s International Realty. 

The front door opens into the open-concept kitchen, living, and dining room area, where light walls and wood floors reflect the natural light that cascades in from the room’s several windows. Rough-hewn wood support beams and steel and wood beams in the ceiling add an industrial touch to the otherwise modern style. 

The back wall of the dining room is a muted forest green. There is a rectangular table with a vase with yellow flowers on it, and six square chairs set up around it. There is a rug under the table. There is a vertical wood beam in the foreground.

The kitchen features custom built wood cabinetry, a Wolf range, stainless steel appliances, and an extended island with granite countertops. A gas fireplace in the living room helps to bolster the home’s forced air heating system, banishing cold from the airy living spaces. 

The kitchen has a wood-beam ceiling, with two steel beams running along it as well. There is a long island with a dark granite countertop and built-in wood cabinets underneath in the middle of the room. A small table with four white chairs is set up to the right of the island. There are several wood cabinets hanging from the back wall above the counter and the stainless-steel refrigerator in the background.

There are two small tables set up near the chair on the left side of the room, both with books on them. The dining room is visible in the background.

A large bed sits against the left wall in the center of the room. The room has wood floors and there are two sets of windows, one in the back wall and one in the right wall. A ceiling fan hangs over the bed. There is a decorative wood beam near the foot of the bed. A set of drawers sits under the windows on the right side of the room. There is a wooden bedside table with a lamp on it.

There’s another bedroom and full bathroom with a combination shower/bathtub on this floor.

The bedroom is bright, with light coming in from the window on the right wall. There is a bed with a white comforter and two decorative pillows against the wall underneath an abstract piece of art. There are small, wood bedside tables on either side of the bed. A vertical wood beam is visible in the right side of the photo.
