About John J. GallagherJr.

My family lived blocks from the property when I was born. I grew up in the Boston area and went to schools here. This property has been in my family for over 100 years and recently I completely renovated the house. When we are not traveling we live here and love the home and the location.

John J. GallagherJr. purchased this house in 2007

Why John J. GallagherJr. chose Area IV

The entire Boston area has so much to offer, including sightseeing, sports, beaches, boating, museums, restaurants, bars and fabulous universities. Our home is in the middle of it all. Everything is new: appliances, windows, floors, baths, tankless hot water heater. We have it all!

What makes this house unique

We designed this house with the idea of a large family or several couples being able to stay here comfortably. Everyone has their space. Once you open the front door (after parking your car in the driveway!) you immediately feel at home. Visting children at school? Coming for a big game? Have a family wedding? Need a backyard space? Dishes, pots and pans and lovely appliances are all here for your use too. But the location is the best part of this lovely home. Be one of the first to list with us.

Thoroughly enjoyed out stay.

  • 5 of 5

We had 3 couples staying in Cambridge to see Boston for the first time. Your place was very comfortable. Thank you for providing so many amenities. Never had that before. We did not eat much at the house because the food out in Boston was so great, so it was nice not to have to do a heavy duty grocery store trip. We never wished we had our won car because the public transportation in Boston is so great, once we figured it out! I would return to Boston in a minute and would recommend the 15 Union Street house.

Great property in the heart of it all!!

  • 5 of 5

My family rented this house in June 2018 for my son's wedding. It was perfect! The three bedrooms were very nice, and all the beds were firm! The kitchen, sitting area and deck were great for socializing with the family. The three full baths allowed us to all get ready quickly. The location was an easy walk or Uber to anywhere we wanted to go! I highly recommend this property!

Convenient and roomy

  • 4 of 5

The house was conveniently located and large enough to accommodate our family. We appreciated the large dining room table, the large supply of plates and utensils, and coffee supplies. We also loved that there was a full bathroom on each floor. Our only issue was the pull-out bed, which was not separated from the public space.

Comfortable, clean, and great location

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay and the home was perfect for entertaining a few friends over graduation weekend.

Our only suggestion is to provide soap for the showers.

Spacious & Excellent Value

  • 5 of 5

Our entire family comfortably stayed a week at John & Rosie’s place.

Brew pubs, dining & grocery are all a quick 5 minute walk away. Plenty of parks for kids to play.

Location, location, location!

  • 5 of 5

We booked John's house in Cambridge for a family reunion trip (5 adults). You absolutely cannot beat the location. We were able to easily walk around Cambridge from this house, including an amazing dinner at Bondir (highly recommend). The house was the perfect size, and had plenty of sitting space. The bedrooms were plenty large, and everything was clean and well-maintained. I would absolutely book this location again for a Boston trip.
