Duplex unit doubles your value on Beacon Hill

A penthouse duplex on Beacon Hill — what more could you ask for in a home for that townhouse- style luxury, that family expansion space, that sense of independence combined with professional association management, and especially that private roof terrace with those views of the sparkling waters of the Charles River and the sparkling city lights of Boston’s skyline we all crave in a condo?

Well, ask no longer, for your wish is your command in the combined units 4 & 5 at 29 Brimmer St. Offered at $1,495,000, this 2,256-square-foot, 2-bedroom, 2.5-bath duplex doubles your value along with your living space and amenities.

The stately brownstone-style entrance with cast-iron door grille, shady walkway and lush English gardens leads to a luxurious lobby with elevator service to your unit.

From the hardwood-floored foyer, step right up to the light-filled living room, peer out at that gorgeous river view, and warm up to one of the four fireplaces in the unit.

Dine in style in the spacious formal dining room. In back is the magnificent bridal staircase that takes you up to the bedroom level in high style. At right is the pass-through to the kitchen for convenient food service and chats with the cook at the bar.

The kitchen features custom cherry cabinetry, solid surface counters, state-of-the-art appliances, recessed lighting, and even a wine rack with wineglass rack situated over the sink for convenient drip-drying.

The upper-level master bedroom combines coziness with comfort and convenience. Its perks include a fireplace, a built-in desk, a walk-in closet, an en suite bath, and a raised sitting area by the bay-window views of the Charles.

Also on this level is an unusually large and luxurious second bedroom with its own fireplace and mirror-wall surround. A bonus room for office, nursery, playpen, media or gameroom use is nearby.

The Boston skyline, the Esplanade and the Charles wrap all around you on the private terrace, where cocktails, cookouts, coffee and conversation have never been more picturesque.

Built in 1880, 29 Brimmer St. is in a block of historic brick rowhouses on the flat of Beacon Hill, which means no hill-climbing and plenty of convenience:

  • Shopping, dining, antique stores, and pharmaceuticals at Gary Drug Co. are right on Charles Street a couple of blocks down.
  • Running and dog-walking are afoot in your choice of three parks: the Boston Common, the Public Garden, and the Esplanade, which comes alive in all colors during the annual July 4th celebration with the Boston Pops Orchestra at the Hatch Shell.
  • Schools are right in the neighborhood, including the Advent School and the Park Street School.

The neighborhood is convenient to other parts of Boston, too. Across the Common are Downtown Crossing, the Financial District and the Theatre District. Across the Garden are more shopping and dining in the Back Bay. Along the Esplanade, you can row along and sail away at the Union Boat Club, which also has squash courts.
