A doorman greets residents and guests when entering the building from Beacon Street.
There is a beautiful luxury condo offering plenty of comfort and style in addition to some of the best views of the city. That gorgeous ninth floor home at 282 Beacon St. in the Back Bay is no longer available. It was sold for $5,600,000 on Sept. 29.
This home has to be seen to fully grasp and appreciate the elegant grandeur of this truly breath-taking palace. Daniel Mullin of Daniel A. Mullin & Associates was the listing broker.
A doorman greets residents and guests when entering the building from Beacon Street. The new owners get to take the elevator directly up to their ninth floor luxury home and admire the beauty of the elegant black and white marble floor entering into the gracious foyer. This is a reminder of the high class that radiates throughout this grand home, which was torn down the studs and renovated in a style that pays tribute to its past while incorporating all the modern luxury comforts of today.
One thing the new residents will not have to deal with at this height is noise from airplanes coming and going from Logan International Airport. The home has 34 totally sound-proof windows found in every room.
Speaking of windows, these are big enough to savor the tremendous views that can be enjoyed from every room.
Given the size and layout of this unit, each room offers a different angle of appreciation for the beauty that the Boston – Cambridge skyline has to offer. And the views of the water are like looking at a large work of beautiful art. The magnificent living room offers views from three angles. It includes one of the four fireplaces to be found in the unit. They are a reminder of quieter, more peaceful days.
The dining room is the place to be for sunsets. While enjoying dinner, take in the amazing sunsets over the Charles River through the large bow window.
The kitchen is very functional and a joy for any chef with a Viking professional four-burner gas stove with grill, Sub-Zero refrigerator and Thermador double wall oven and microwave. Adding to the class is a built-in counter for two to share a meal while taking in the view of the Charles. There are also glass door cabinets, a U-Line wine refrigerator and for something to do while waiting for the culinary masterpieces to cook, there’s a built-in desk.
With another tribute to the past, this home has a library with handsome wood paneling. The family room is another place that offers plenty of old-world charm and comfort. It is spacious with a high beam ceiling and beautiful custom wood bookcases.
The very spacious corner master bedroom suite is a place that will be hard to leave in the morning. It has great views of the Boston skyline, including of the city’s two tallest buildings – the Hancock Tower and the Pru. The carpet is a treat for bare feet. No need to pile things up on the floor - there are plenty of build-in shelves, drawers and cabinets.
There is even a sizable dressing room with more built-in shelves and drawers. The suite also includes one of the home’s four beautiful fireplaces.
The master bathroom is large with a walk-in shower, relaxing tub, two sinks and plenty of light.
This home also includes two amazingly large guest bedrooms with more comforts than your guests probably get in their own homes. During the renovation, a small bathroom was reworked and now is a Jack and Jill bath with a double sink and walk-in shower.
According to Mullin, this home “has a New York Fifth Avenue look.”
It also has some other benefits the new owners are sure to enjoy, such as two parking spaces and a large private storage room. The co-operative fee includes the real estate taxes.
Mullin is one of the most respected and well-loved real estate professionals in the city. He talked about his role in selling homes as being “more about helping people in their most nerve-wracking life decisions.”
The Back Bay continues to be one of the city’s most desirable addresses. From this beautiful home, it doesn’t take much effort to get out and enjoy all the Back Bay has to offer. This home’s great location has an air of peace about it. It’s a short walk to get to the Charles River. Plus, there are all those magnificent shops and restaurants, including those on the always-popular Newbury Street. There is fairly easy access to the Boston Common, Chinatown, the Theater District and Copley Square. The Boston Public Library is nearby. And for those who would prefer not to walk, the MBTA subway system is easy to reach. And to enjoy the outdoors, there are plenty of parks and green space to discover and savor.
