There are going to be some new neighbors moving in for the people living on Beacon Hill to meet. Unit 7 at 44 Chestnut St. sold for $1,450,000 on June 9. The listing and selling agent was Amy Donovan of LandVest, Inc.
This is a penthouse with plenty for the new owners to enjoy among its 1,365 square feet of gorgeous living space. For one thing, Beacon Hill is one of the most desirable neighborhoods in Boston to call home. This penthouse is loaded with all the charm one could hope for in a Beacon Hill unit. There are impressive high ceilings, beautiful crown molding, two wood burning fireplaces and hardwood floors throughout this home.
Just going through the front door gives you a feeling of walking back into another era. First, there’s a cozy, comfortable sitting room with its own sunny window and built-in bookcases. Then climb the internal staircase and at the top, enter the luxury-loaded living level.
The unit comes with two generous bedrooms and a brightly tiled bathroom with a classic claw foot tub to relax those tired muscles after a long day of work.
The kitchen is a joy for anyone who loves to cook – and eat. This sleek lit kitchen includes top-of-line appliances, of course. Plenty of light will find its way into the kitchen with the skylight.
And it’s going to be hard to leave the grand south-facing living room with its abundance of sunlight and space.
No need to stuff belongings under the bed and tables – this home is loaded with storage space, including two walk-in closets and an abundance of built-ins. If that’s not enough, the new owners will be happy with their two storage units in the common lower level.
The crown jewel of this home is actually on the roof. It’s a private roof deck – perfect to enjoy those nice spring, summer and fall evenings with a 360-degree view of the State House, the Charles River and the Back Bay skyline. Looking out over the chimney pots of Beacon Hill overlooking the Public Garden and the Boston Common from the roof deck might remind some people of Mary Poppins and the view of the old London skyline.
This architectural gem of a building at one of Boston’s most prestigious addresses is professionally managed and owner occupied.
Living on Beacon Hill offers plenty to enjoy outside the home. There are all the restaurants, shops and galleries along Charles Street. There’s also the State House, Boston Common and the Public Garden all within easy walking distance. Enjoy Louisburg Square, the Freedom Trail and the Black Heritage Trail. Mass General Hospital is close by and it’s not too far a walk to Copley Square. For those who like plays and concerts, the Theatre District is nearby, as is Chinatown.
There is also easy access to the MBTA’s Red, Green, Orange and Silver Lines as well as to Storrow Drive, the Mass Turnpike and Route 93.
