The high ceilings, tall windows, floor-through floor plans and central city locations of the South End’s 19th-century rowhouses are just as appealing to millennial lifestyles as they were to Victorian sensibilities. No exception is Unit 2 at 41 Union Park, a 910-square-foot, 1-bedroom condo now on the market for $629,000.
Just step into the great room and experience past, present and future all in one. The ornate crown moldings, ceiling medallion, arched marble fireplace and hand-carved period mirror provide remembrances of things past, while the 14-foot ceiling, wide-pine floor and oversized bowfront windows are perfectly adaptable to whatever living, dining and entertaining arrangements suit you.
The windows have a gorgeous view of Union Park’s elegant central oval park with flower-surrounded cast-iron fountain, evoking the elegance of an old London residential square.
The wide-pine floor goes through original pocket doors into the light-filled, fireplaced bedroom for even more of a Sun King lifestyle. Both fireplaces are fully functioning.
The kitchen has been updated with the silvery sheen of stainless steel throughout its sinks, counters and appliances.
