Custom Designed South End loft at The Modern

The Modern is a 2007 new construction development that houses 25 units in a seven-story building in the heart of the South End. The Modern is located at 255 Northampton Street in Boston MA. It is located just minutes from the heart of the South Ends arts and music scene, and just steps from Boston’s major shopping area, Newbury St. Most units are one-bedroom, one-bathroom, with floor-to-ceiling windows, and interior finishes by award winning designer Dennis Duffy. Units range in size from 845 square foot one-bedrooms to 1,335 sq. ft. bedroom penthouses.

As mentioned, the common areas, kitchens, and baths are designed by Dennis Duffy. Duffy is an award winning designer, owner of D SCALE custom furniture, and Principal at Duffy Design Group. Art and Design aficionados and fans of upscale modern furniture in the Boston area are well aware of Duffy’s work- and the Interior design work he did here at The Modern. The units are highly sought after, and do not stay on the market long.

The unit featured here, 604, is a unique penthouse unit featuring floor to ceiling windows, perfectly positioned with unobstructed views of Boston’s city skyline. This 1218 sq. ft. one bedroom loft space offers an expansive, Duffy designed living space– nowhere else in this building is the evidence of this modern designer more apparent- Carrera marble floors accentuate and enhance the ultra-sleek lines of this open concept contemporary loft, and the Kitchen’s stainless steel appliances and custom built cabinetry blend seamlessly in to the design language. The bathroom is another example of beautiful contemporary minimalist design, but it does not give up comfort for style- the soaking tub and gentle blue tones evoke a spa like ambience. The large bedroom features a custom designed walk in closet, and just like the main living area, features floor to ceiling windows, with custom window treatments. This penthouse unit also features a deeded garage space, and a rooftop patio with unbelievable views of the city.


This unit is offered at $685k, and will not last long- please contact me as soon as possible to learn more!
