This home boasts walls of windows with expansive and unmatched Boston harbor and city skyline views and an open living, dining and kitchen concept—ideal for every day and entertaining. It has a sprawling feel and is spacious, with plenty of room to showcase a baby grand piano. It has two bedrooms PLUS a library and two and a half bathrooms.

When you enter this home, you’ll find a gracious foyer with marble flooring, a coat closet, as well as the guest half bath, tile flooring with a single vessel contemporary sink and vanity.  Next, you’ll be captured by the light from the wall of windows throughout the entire room.

In addition to a large living area, there’s a distinct dining area with custom white built-in cabinets, which add tremendous storage and display opportunities. It has two built-in Marvel wine coolers— one for white and one for red wine. The Absolute Black granite counter top makes a great bar server or buffet for entertaining.

The open kitchen features an Absolute Black granite counter atop white cabinetry and boasts the high-end appliances you would expect: Sub-zero refrigerator/freezer, four Miele appliances including a wall oven, convection microwave oven, warming drawer and glass top range as well as a Fisher Paykel double dishwasher. The bar height countertop offers casual seating for three and makes a great serving area when entertaining as well.

The library features built-in cabinetry, a wood burning fireplace and French doors, allowing in tremendous natural light as well as the opportunity for a private oasis, additional entertaining space or a guest room, as needed.

The master bedroom, set on a riser with a King size bed, enjoys the same fabulous views as the main living area. In addition to a custom closet system, it has a generous en-suite spa-like master bath with slate tile, a shower with a frameless glass door and three shower heads including overhead rain as well as a built-in bench. Across from the shower is a deep soaking Jacuzzi tub with a multi-toned stone surround. A white vanity features a brown-flecked Labrador antique granite counter and single sink.

The second bedroom is spacious with new custom built-ins for a terrific home office set-up, and houses a Queen size Murphy bed for multiple functional use. You can enjoy the exceptional views even while working! The second bathroom features an oversized, high-end slate shower with frameless glass door, and a contemporary glass vessel sink atop the vanity.

This home has many other coveted features: 10-foot ceilings, hardwood floors, central air, in-unit washer/dryer, and comes with extra storage and two valet garage parking spaces.
