South End duplex larger than the average 1-bed

Unit 2 at 50 Chandler St. is a great way to plant your roots in Boston’s historic South End at a higher-than-average level — the duplex level. Offered at $654,000, this 988-square-foot unit feels larger and roomier than the average 1-bed unit, owing to its upper loft bedroom, extra half-bath, separate living and dining rooms, deck, high ceilings, bowfront window, and carefully preserved historical details.

The rowhouse’s bowfront expands the space and intensifies the exposure in the formal living room, which retains its original arched marble fireplace with patterned hearth tiles, as well as a period light fixture.

The formal dining room also has an original marble fireplace, flanked by alcoves for highboys, cabinets or artwork. The dining room accesses a private deck overlooking historic Lawrence Street.

The sunny kitchen has been fully updated with Energy Star certified stainless steel appliances, Corian counters, a tiled backsplash laid on the diagonal, and paneled cherry cabinetry customized to be compatible with the unit’s historical details and finishes.

The bonus office has two elements conducive to quiet study: a red wall treatment for a somber, serene atmosphere, and a large window for ample light.

The upstairs bedroom is large and bright, with ample space for a king-size bed and a broad closet alcove with its own window and scrolled bracket accents.

The full bath is finely finished with a decorative tile stringcourse, a step-in shower with brass-framed slider, and a mirror-door medicine cabinet with classic pediment surround.

Unit 2 also has Energy Star certified washer and dryer. The $217/month condo fee includes water and sewer, master insurance, exterior maintenance, and snow removal.
