For half the price of a single-family of this style and substance, Unit 2 at 139 O St. will make you feel like you own the whole house. And a full house this 1,250-square-foot penthouse duplex is, boasting two bedrooms with en suite baths, two decks including a roof deck, a bay-windowed great room, a granite/stainless kitchen with island counter and deck access, a half bath, and beautiful details, finishes and hardwood floors throughout, all for only $559,000.
Add to that the great room’s classic gas fireplace, recessed ceiling lighting, and floor-through flow all the way from the front bay window to the rear kitchen and deck, and you’re really at home now. Paneled wainscoting and a crown molding enhance the baronial grandeur of the space.
The kitchen’s island counter bar almost feels like a dining table with its cantilevered granite counter and designer pendant lighting. Stainless steel appliances, custom paneled cabinetry and a granite running counter add more culinary class to your food-prep and wash-up experience.
The Victorian rowhouse’s steep mansard roof gives the upper-level bedrooms generous headroom, floor area and window allowance.
Unit 2’s 2008 renovation included the installation of a designer vanity with glass counter, glass bowl-sink and Italian chrome faucet in the master bath.
The private roofdeck treats you and your cocktail/cookout guests to breathtaking views as far as the eye can see, from Boston Harbor’s clear blue waters to the Back Bay’s liquid-blue John Hancock Tower.
Which signifies the rich array of neighborhood amenities a short walk from 139 O St. Boating aficionados have a choice among the South Boston Yacht Club, Columbia Yacht Club and Puritan Canoe Club along the bay. Also nearby are the Oliver Hazard Perry School, Medal of Honor Park, Christopher Lee Playground, a Cumberland Farms convenience store, and many fine restaurants and cafes.
