A striking new structure has recently risen in the au courant Boston neighborhood that straddles South Boston, the South End, Fort Point, and the Seaport District. 100 A Street was completed in December 2018 by the developer Brenco, and while all of the nine distinctively designed condominium units in the building are remarkable, the floor-through penthouse, named Skyhouse, is one-of-a-kind.
“This is a truly unique home,” says listing agent Ricardo Rodriguez of Coldwell Banker. “The Skyhouse is slightly more than 3,800 square feet of exquisite design and dramatic views.” With floor-to-ceiling windows in every room, the fifth-floor Skyhouse enjoys a 360-degree gaze towards Downtown, Fort Point and the Seaport, South Boston, Back Bay, and the Blue Hills.
From its private elevator entrance, the condo opens up to a grand living space with marble surround gas fireplace and formal dining area. The kitchen boasts custom cabinetry, quartz countertops, a coffee station, and a generously sized island. A floating staircase leads to a roof deck, one of the unit’s three private outdoor spaces.
“This is really a home for people who love to entertain,” says Rodriguez. In addition to the party-ready deck that is already connected to gas, electricity, and water, there’s additional seating area at the base of the staircase plus another fireplace and a wet bar with both wine fridge and beverage center.
With four bedrooms and three and half baths, Skyhouse is also perfect for families. “The master bedroom has a walk-in closet, private deck, and a bathroom with incredible views,” says Rodriguez. “There are also two almost equal-sized smaller bedrooms with a Jack and Jill bathroom between them, and a proper guest suite, separate from the rest of the home, for visitors and relatives.”
The interior was fashioned by HGTV star designer and Food Network host Taniya Nayak, whose design company is based in Boston. Combining cool, contemporary lines with warm textures and nature-inspired finishes, Nayak ’s design beautifully augments the stunning structure.
“The Skyhouse is a smart home,” adds Rodriguez, “It’s equipped with voice-activated technology that allows you to control security, climate, entertainment, and even the automated blinds that let in all that natural light.” Two heated garage parking spaces are included, but the neighborhood is also supremely walkable.
“You can easily walk to the Seaport or the South End, and the new flagship Whole Foods is just blocks away,” says the Realtor. “All of which makes it easy to host a housewarming get-together. “This is a supremely move-in ready home,” he continues. “It’s just waiting for your opening party.”
