A spacious condominium with maximum city views hits the market.
“You cannot replicate these views,” says Coldwell Banker Sales Associate Maureen O’Hara, of the stunning floor-through condominium at 100 Beacon Street, Unit 6. Located at the corner of Beacon and Arlington, the four-bedroom, four-and-a-half-bath condo is graced with 30 windows that afford spectacular views of the Boston Public Garden, the Esplanade, and the Charles River, with the Cambridge skyline beyond.
With an unparalleled combination of living space and a cosmopolitan allure reminiscent of a Park Avenue co-op, this pre-war building also had a recent, complete renovation. “This is 21st-century infrastructure,” says Ms. O’Hara, who is with Coldwell Banker’s Back Bay office. “The plumbing, heating, electrical, fire alarm; everything is state-of-the-art.”
At over 4,000-square-feet, the condominium has plenty of room for both family living and elegant entertaining. “You usually cannot find this amount of space available outside of a high-rise building in a more commercial area,” says Ms. O’Hara. 100 Beacon is in a lovely residential neighborhood close to everything, including the shops on Charles Street in nearby Beacon Hill and around the corner on Newbury Street. “The home has a sense of intimacy, yet world-class amenities are easily accessible.”
The unit, which takes up the entire floor, is very well thought out, says Ms. O’Hara. “It has a wonderful flow with a large living and dining area and well-conceived, distinct spaces, such as a luxurious wood-paneled library with an office alcove and a media room with a wet bar.”
The four bedrooms are en-suite, with the spacious master featuring corner exposure, two expansive custom dressing rooms, and a luxurious inset tub with a view. The condo has its own convenient laundry space, an opulently designed powder room, and generous storage throughout.
The property includes a 24-hour professionally trained concierge service and two deeded parking spaces on the premises. “That is a huge amenity,” says Ms. O’Hara, “because parking in that neighborhood is so scarce.”
Overall, the unit offers a unique opportunity for sophisticated urban living with classic Brahmin charm.
