Penthouse perfection in the Back Bay

Built in Beaux-Arts style in 1907 by master architects Cram & Goodhue, 334 Beacon St. in the Back Bay has been masterfully renovated into a first-class condominium, and the high-pitched chateau roof forms a penthouse that is top in its class in lavish, lofty luxury.


Offered at $2.05 million, the 2,381-square-foot, 3-bedroom, 2-bath penthouse unit rises with the roof and widens with the walls. The broad, deep footprint allows for a far-reaching living room that lets you drink in the water and the sun from the breathtaking Charles River views, and take in your favorite programs or movies from the custom-crafted entertainment center.

The imaginative new renovation interconnects the living room with all of the other common areas to add lofty, flexible flow to your lifestyle.

The dining room lets in light from the skylights in the adjoining spaces, creating an atmosphere that is formal but not fussy.

The chef’s kitchen is traditionally European in its galley layout yet modernly American in its skylight sunniness and its step-up access to the raised library and roofdeck. Granite counters, custom cabinetry, stainless steel appliances, and a pass-through to the dining room are the kitchen’s prize features.

The library, lined with a bookcase wall and lit with a skylight, is a heavenly place to enjoy a good book, especially in warmer months when the private roofdeck is right at your door.

The roofdeck boasts unprecedented Back Bay skyline views for a penthouse, as well as one of the most expansive cocktail party gathering spaces available to one unit.

The chateau’s crowning tower forms a studio space that can be used as a comfy-cozy sitting room, children’s bedroom, guest bedroom or home office. Climb up the ladder to the perfect hideaway spots under the peak of the tower, with a bridge connecting them across the studio space. A private play area and/or home office can be arranged up here, away from the family.

The penthouse unit has direct elevator access from the common lobby. The $846 monthly association fee includes elevator maintenance, heat, hot water, water and sewer, and master insurance.
