It may look small and simple on the outside, but wait ’til you get into 11C Waltham St.’s 557-square-foot, 1-bed Unit 2 and experience the studio space, elaborate detail, high ceilings and windows, high-end finishes and fixtures, and fabulous central location, all for only $349,000.
Unit 2‘s open plan studio layout is perfect for the first-time homebuyer who wants freedom and flexibility in living space arrangement, and who wants some of the artist studio spirit of the South End as a guiding light in that space-planning. The humongous windows, including a long, deep bay window, certainly fill that bill, as do the towering ceiling and the finished hardwood floor. The original Carrara marble fireplace brings historical warm charm to the space, and the flanking bookcase-counter-cabinet units are unusually large for a unit in this price range.
The kitchen has been fully updated with black granite counters, matching black custom cabinetry, and compatible stainless steel appliances for an ultramodern look that starkly contrasts the unit’s historical flavor.
The bedroom’s tall windows assure you ample morning light. Its built-in ceiling-high armoire-storage unit accommodates your growing wardrobe and linen collection. The bath contains a water-jet soaking tub, and an in-unit washer/dryer is also at your service.
And look at the location: Peters Park, Rotch Playground, Boston Sports Club, Foodie’s Market, Union Bar & Grill and other fine restaurants, Route 1 and I-93 access, and Silver Line service along Washington Street down the block are all within walking distance.
