The Pope of Bay Village: a penthouse duplex loft at 221 Columbus Ave.

The Albert A. Pope Building at 221 Columbus Ave.

The Albert A. Pope Building‘s high ceilings, grand arches, lavish ornamentation, and central location among Boston’s Back Bay, Bay Village and South End neighborhoods made it prime for conversion into some of the brightest, broadest luxury lofts you’ve ever seen with some of the most breathtaking city vistas you’ve ever seen.

The 2-bedroom, 2-bath duplex Unit 703, offered at $1,895,000, shows the advantages of living at the top of the Pope. The top-floor arched windows add classical dignity and bird’s-eye views to your loft life. The 1,919-square-foot open floor plan sets you free as a bird to plan your dream space. The corner location surrounds you in urban vibrancy. The cathedral window fills the fireplaced living room with southwestern sun.

No galley kitchen here. The Poggenpohl kitchen with center island, black granite counters and state-of-the-art stainless steel appliances is totally open to the living-dining space, so you won’t be isolated from your dinner party guests as you prepare their sumptuous banquet. The open staircase up to the bedroom level keeps the loft space flowing from party time to bedtime.

The carpeted master bedroom has just as much flexibility in room arrangement, and its broad but up-close view put the sights and sounds of the city at your fingertips every morning.

Masterfully finished in cobalt blue tile, the master bath features a soaking tub, a large farmer’s sink, and an oversized step-in shower.

The private roofdeck puts you up against the John Hancock Tower and sends you off into the wild blue yonder as you sip your champagne or have your morning coffee. The flower planters beautify your ethereal experience up here.

The common roofdeck really puts you on top of things, providing sparkling city panoramas for summer celebrations and cookouts. Other common amenities in this full-service building include elevator, direct access garage and outdoor parking (two garage spaces and one outdoor space deeded to Unit 703), 24-hour concierge, professional management for a $2,626 monthly fee, and, of course, the popular Mistral Restaurant at street level.
