Old house, new look in South End penthouse duplex

Don’t let the Victoriana of this old house fool you. Antique doesn’t mean antiquated when it comes to living in Boston’s old South End — especially in Unit 2 at 143 Appleton St.

Offered at $715,000, this 1,059-square-foot, 2-bedroom penthouse duplex has been newly renovated for a contemporary loft look that capitalizes on the original tall windows, high ceilings, exposed brick and open floor plan to inject new life into this old house.

The living-dining room has the crisp, clean lines and sumptuous sun of a contemporary loft and the rustic richness of a historic home. A new built-in bookcase and entertainment center completes the picture.

The living-dining room space and light flow right into the kitchen, which a hook-shaped running black granite counter open encloses. Custom cabinetry and china cupboards, stainless steel appliances and recessed ceiling lighting set up the space for cool, contemporary cuisine.

Classic comfort characterizes the bedrooms, both of which get plenty of sun to awaken you and to keep your baby happy.

The private roofdeck is unprecedented for stunning city views, with the Prudential and John Hancock tower making great conversation pieces for your cookouts, cocktails or coffee klatches.

The cobblestoned street adds antiquity to the atmosphere, in a Beacon Hill vein. A stone’s throw away are an array of amenities: Appleton Bakery Cafe, Coda Bar & Kitchen, Titus Sparrow Park, Southwest Corridor Park fitness trails, Boston Ballet, subway service at Massachusetts Avenue, Massachusetts Turnpike connections, and much more.
