Located on one of the South End’s gorgeous brownstone-lined streets between Shawmut and Tremont Streets, this home has it all. A manageable five steps lead into this parlor/garden level duplex, making it the perfect home for empty nesters looking to age comfortably in the South End or young parents who don’t jump at the thought of lugging children, groceries, etc. up three plus flights of stairs. The door to the unit opens up into a grand living area framed by a two wall of oversized windows. This home is an end unit providing privacy and plenty of natural light through its three exposures. Complete with dramatic crown molding, high ceilings, and a REAL wood burning fireplace with marble mantle, this space allows ample room for separate living and dining spaces. This is one of the most generous living areas I’ve seen in a South End duplex allowing the owner plenty of freedom when it comes to layout and entertaining. Off of the dining room, you’ll find a small but efficient kitchen. It features a good amount of cabinet space, a sleek grey marble countertop, stainless appliances, and a crisp white back splash complete with unique accent tiles.
Continuing past the living area, kitchen, and stairs to the lower level, you’ll find one of the homes THREE FULL bathrooms. Seriously? Bonus! This bathroom features lovely white tiling and a glass enclosed shower. The parlor level is rounded off with two bedrooms, including the master, a laundry closet, and access to the common roof deck. Both bedrooms are a good size but the master, of course, provides the most space and storage. The master bath includes a full shower and tub and a window. Although the finish and type vary throughout, the whole first floor (and lower level for that matter) are lined with well-kept hardwood floors.
Moving downstairs to the recently converted basement, we find more wonderfully laid out living space. The stairs lead into a large family room flanked by another generously sized bedroom and a full bathroom and study area. This bathroom again features a glass enclosed shower and charming sea foam tiles. This lower level provides a perfect setting for your guests, your kids home from college, or your man cave.
All this PLUS a low condo fee, a 100% owner occupied association, a deeded, locked storage space in addition to closets galore, and an asking price of $979,000. Buy with us and save thousands on commission. Do you need to look further? Call me at 877-852-6636 so I can set up a showing for this home before it’s scooped up by another discerning buyer.
