150 years ago it was the original site of Boston College—filled to the brim with eager students, Latin texts, quill pens, and thoughtful professors. Today its home to sixty of Boston’s most unique residences. Long gone are the noisy students but the dramatic high ceilings, tall windows, gorgeous brick façade, and classic Victorian architectural touches remain. If its modern updates you’re looking for including efficient cooling and heating, garage parking, 24 hour concierge, and state of the art security, you’ll find it here. This is Penmark.
Located in the South End’s SOWA district, The Penmark provides access to the best of what the city has to offer. Let’s start with the food. Flour Bakery (http://flourbakery.com/) is just steps away on Washington St. offering a great place to hang out and eat the most amazing scones, muffins, pastries, and sandwiches you’ll ever indulge in. One visit to Flour and you’ll be a life long customer—it’s that good. Another amazing local spot is Toro (http://www.toro-restaurant.com/) featuring Barcelona-style tapas. It’s a great place to bring a group of friends and order one of everything on the menu! The food is unique and super tasty—don’t forget to order the grilled corn and duck drumettes.
If its culture you’re seeking, you’re in the heart of it all at Penmark. Walk over to Symphony Hall or the Ballet for some world class entertainment. For art, make a stop at the Thayer St. Galleries or jump on the T over to the Museum of Fine Arts.
This location of the Penmark (21 Father Francis Gilday Street) also makes the shopping we have to do and the shopping we want to do a breeze! In addition to some of the best boutique shopping in the city, there’s a Foodie’s right on Washington St. for literally all of your food needs. Foodie’s offers a wide array of ethnic foods as well as foods for specific diets, an awesome salad bar, and fresh hot meals daily. Did I mention the wine selection? If you’re a current city dweller, the convenience of having a good grocery store within walking distance I know will not be lost on you!
The time you spend inside the Penmark will be just as impressive as the time you spend in the surrounding neighborhood. The current unit on the market is a 907 sq. ft. 1 bedroom complete with 2 bathrooms. The open kitchen dazzles with top of the line stainless appliances, dramatic black granite counters, and a convenient breakfast bar. The kitchen opens up into the living area complete with bamboo flooring and a balcony overlooking the courtyard. In addition to the sizable master bedroom, you’ll love the bonus room perfect for a nursery or office. The modern bathrooms impress with marble flooring and tile.
