One home absolutely worth checking out is Penthouse #5 at 28 Mount Vernon St. This top-floor unit is loaded with space and amazing features that will make coming home every night a real joy.
The Polish Triangle is one of the most desirable places to call home in Dorchester. Many of the old three-deckers have been beautifully renovated and this is rapidly becoming a very “hip and trendy” neighborhood.
One home absolutely worth checking out is Penthouse #5 at 28 Mount Vernon St. This top-floor unit is loaded with space and amazing features that will make coming home every night a real joy. With 1,722 square feet of beautiful living space that includes two-plus bedrooms and two full baths, Duncan Donahue of the Donahue Realty Group of Keller Williams Realty Int’l has listed this condo for $849,000.
It’s located in a building constructed in 2010.
Chefs are going to love whipping up meals in this large kitchen. There’s top of the line Viking appliances, including a large six-burner gas stove, dishwasher and a sizable refrigerator. All this is enhanced with Caesarstone countertops and beautiful custom cabinets.
The kitchen flows into a wonderfully large open area that is currently being used as a large living room surrounded by two dining areas. The smaller dining area offers some of the nice views of the outside world that will make dining a pleasure. For more formal meals or to entertain guests, the larger dining area comfortably fits a good-sized table.
In between the dining areas is a very comfortable living room that includes a large gas fireplace. It will be easy to put a television over that fireplace.
This floor also opens up onto a beautiful deck that comes with piped-in gas. From this height, enjoy looking out onto the peaceful neighborhood that feels more like the suburbs than an urban area. Looking out from a different angle, you will see the skyline of the city’s Financial District in the distance.
What is currently being used as the master bedroom has plenty of storage, thanks to the large walk-in closet. You will have no trouble getting a king-sized bed into this room. The master suite bathroom includes a wonderful large shower that you can enjoy sitting or standing.
The second bathroom in this home has a shower-tube.
Guests will love the second bedroom, which has plenty of comfortable space and a large closet.
Then there is the real treasure in this unit – upstairs to the Great Room. It can be used for entertaining or as an extra large living room or it can easily be converted into the master bedroom suit. This magnificent space has its own wet bar and gas fireplace.
Step out from this room onto the absolutely gorgeous wrap-around rooftop patio. This is a joyful place that has access to gas and water.
“This could be converted into a garden oasis longue,” said Donahue. “You could feel you are in a garden.”
He also pointed out that adding French doors from the Great Room/bedroom would add extra ambiance.
The views from this vantage point are incredible. Once again, enjoy the serenity of the surrounding tree-lined neighborhood and take in the beauty of the Boston skyline that from up here also includes the Pru and the other Back Bay skyscrapers as well as the Financial District and Waterfront.
“I really love this space,” said Donahue. “It has a lot of potential.”
This home has hardwood flooring and high ceilings throughout and there is central air conditioning.
Another feature is in following the trend of not just having a place to live, but in creating a desirable lifestyle. In the clubhouse, located in the finished basement, residents will enjoy a fine array of exercise equipment, a pool table, darts board and bar. There is also a full bath and a steam room. Also in the basement are large storage units for each condo. In addition, residents will find a place to store their bicycles.
28 Mount Vernon is pet-friendly and every unit gets a deeded off-street full parking space.
The Polish Triangle is close to South Boston. Residents are a short walk away from beaches, convenient shopping and the MBTA’s Red Line JFK and Andrew Square stations. Carson Beach is only .7 miles away. It also doesn’t take much effort to get to the new South Bay for shopping and restaurants. Don’t ignore what is in your own backyard, either. The Polish Triangle itself has interesting bars, restaurants, dry cleaning services and some wonderful bakeries.
“It is Dorchester light, South Boston light,” said Donahue. “This neighborhood is really unique.”
There will be open houses from noon to 2 p.m. on Saturday, Aug. 12 and Sunday, Aug. 13.
