Add to that the 1910 Beaux Arts building’s masterfully crafted mosaic tile entry, and you enter feeling like a king without having to pay a king’s ransom for your unit.
The living-dining room is a “great room” indeed, with its continuous flow from one space into the next, the widening of its living-room space for more entertaining elbow room, its unusually high headroom for a garden-level unit, and its grilled windows giving the space security as well as sunshine.
The renovated kitchen and its adjoining lounge/breakfast area contrast the building’s Beaux Arts classicism with a touch of contemporary Manhattan class. Custom paneled cabinetry, granite counters, state-of-the-art appliances and a sizable pantry comprise a complete kitchen. A granite breakfast bar provides a food service passage and a chat-with-the-cook opportunity between the two spaces.
The carpeted master bedroom reprises the living-dining room’s garden-level intimacy. An original fireplace brings warmth and décor to the space.
Another advantage of garden-level living is proximity to the common courtyard, which lets you and your neighbors experience the great outdoors with the feel of an Italian piazza.
The common roofdeck has stunning views of Boston, Cambridge and the Charles River, reminding you how central 4 Charlesgate East is to everything under the sun — shopping and dining at the Prudential Center and on Newbury Street, subway and bus service to downtown Boston and beyond at Kenmore Square, bus service across the Charles to MIT and Harvard Square, and much more.
