Chasing rainbows in search of your dream home? Find your pot o’ gold at Laconia Lofts at 1180-1200 Washington St., a 98-unit South End condominium that elevates loft living to a luxury level.
At loft luxury’s highest level is the 2-bedroom, 2-bath penthouse unit 502, offered at $1.07 million. The ultimate in flexible floor plans is complemented with ceilings as high as 20 feet, floor-to-ceiling windows for the sun and soar of the artist’s “atelier” that inspired the units, and high-end finishes to take the rough-and-tumble out of this 1,700-square-foot studio-style space.
The fireplaced living-dining room is especially breathtaking, receiving a wall of light from its floor-level and clerestory windows, which brighten the overlook office/bedroom above as well. The grainy walnut paneling achieves a middle ground between studio ruggedness and condo luxury. The living-dining room is centrally located to every point in the unit for greater spatial flow.
The room accesses a 360-square-foot private landscaped terrace with irrigation system, which brings the spirit of your studio into the great outdoors. Cocktails, coffee and cookouts can be enjoyed against a stunning city panorama encompassing the Back Bay, the South End and beyond.
The galley kitchen features a wall of frosted-glass cabinetry, walnut cabinets that complement the living-dining room paneling, state-of-the-art stainless steel appliances, and generous granite counterspace that opens out to the living-dining room as a pass-through for faster food service.
The master bedroom has a birds-eye maple hardwood floor, and the light blue wall treatment intensifies the light from the large windows.
The second bedroom, which overlooks the living-dining room and its deck access, can be configured into a bedroom/office space so you can get your work done while keeping an eye on your family below.
As its contemporary look suggests, Laconia Lofts has lifestyle’s latest: high-tech hookups for cable TV and the Internet, modern elevators, a 79-space in-house garage (one deeded space for Unit 502), a large lobby, even a gallery for the artists who make their home and art here. Just as appealing is its central location beside a baseball field, on the Silver Line bus route to downtown and Dudley Square, and within walking distance of parks, tennis courts, and the South End’s chic boutiques, art galleries, restaurants and Parisian cafés.
