Bustling with shops, restaurants, museums and hotels, the Seaport district boasts some of the best waterfront acreage in Boston. This thriving neighborhood also has the advantage of being conveniently located to the Financial District and downtown, making it one of the city’s most sought-after addresses.
“The Seaport is an incredibly hot neighborhood,” says Coldwell Banker Realty Sales Associate Brigitte Petrocelli, a bona fide authority about the area who has achieved the highest sale on record in the neighborhood. “There is so much growth and activity here.”
“I think that the Seaport has fast become one of the most unique neighborhoods in Boston,” agrees Coldwell Banker Global Luxury Ambassador Ricardo Rodriguez, “as it is completely different from every other one, in terms of lifestyle and real estate inventory, both residential as well as commercial and office.”
Rodriguez, whose team at the Boston-Back Bay Coldwell Banker Realty office also often represents both buyers and sellers in the Seaport, sees an exciting future for the area. “In my opinion, it is truly a committed vertical urban residential neighborhood,” he says. “And it keeps moving forward in all sectors. The recent commitment from Amazon confirms its viability and desirability.”
Once mainly a working waterfront for Boston’s storied maritime trades, the Seaport still retains a historic quayside feel, while also embracing contemporary and innovative architecture.
One striking new residential structure is 300 Pier Four, a boutique luxury building situated close to the Institute of Contemporary Art.
Each of the 106 boutique homes at 300 Pier Four offers stunning harbor views, but the penthouse, which is listed with Petrocelli, is a truly remarkable property. On a corner with unobstructed water views through floor to ceiling windows, this superb urban home includes outdoor living space of more than 2000 square feet, including a master suite balcony, and a private roof terrace completely outfitted for the ultimate in exterior entertaining.
“For luxury buyers that want a ‘yard’ with no maintenance, this is a spectacular opportunity,” says Petrocelli. “The rooftop terrace, which directly overlooks Boston Harbor, has a gas fire pit that seats eight people and a full outdoor kitchen,” she says. “This home offers everything you can have in the suburbs with none of the cumbersome upkeep.”
Listed at $16,500,000, the two-level, 3,644 Sq. Ft unit features an expansive living/dining room with fireplace, four bedrooms, each with its own en-suite bath, options for a home gym or office, garage space for four cars, numerous amenities, valet and concierge services and deep-water dock/mooring access. “The building itself is a sanctuary for residents, with a full staff catering to any request,” says Petrocelli. “And the penthouse at 300 Pier Four is indeed a spectacular place,” she adds. “It is the perfect home for enjoying the very best of Boston’s Seaport.”
