A colorful contemporary corner unit in the heart of Boston offers luxurious finishes and glamorous touches in the Ritz-Carlton Residences, located at 1 Avery St. in the Midtown neighborhood.

Unit 18F, located in one of the two trendy towers, is a one-bedroom, two-bathroom home listed for $1,325,000 by Atlantic Associates Real Estate.

Stunning Brazilian cherry herringbone floors, soaring ceilings and multiple walls of floor-to-ceiling windows are some of the signature visages in this urban chic – one of a kind – turnkey home.

The condominium is efficiently soundproofed so all city noise stays outside, a much appreciated benefit of living on the 18th floor. Hunter Douglas blackout shades and dimmer switches on all the lights are just a couple of the conveniences in this home.

Because this is a transitional floor, according to Kathleen Cook of Atlantic Associates Real Estate, it is the only level where the residences have 14-foot ceilings.

The open floor plan “gets gorgeous light,” said Cook. “The wrap-around glass is just beautiful. It’s nice because it’s a corner unit so you get the two exposures of light” posing sensational views of the City. “At night, all the city lights are on,” Cook said. Looking out onto the cityscape, “it’s so dramatic. It’s beautiful,” she added.

The pass-through kitchen has the desirable high-end appliances such as a Viking gas stove, a Sub-Zero refrigerator, Miele dishwasher, plus a Franke sink and faucet. With gleaming cabinets and drawers for storage and a paneled refrigerator, this kitchen showcases its contemporary feel, yet is simultaneously functional.

A large granite-topped island lodges the cabinetry, sink and dishwasher embraced by a raised breakfast bar with seating for three on one side. Custom delicate lighting hangs above the seating area reflecting another of the flourishing touches this residence offers.

While standing at the sink in the kitchen, a glance to the right provides a sweeping view down Washington Street as do the windows in the adjacent dining area. Even the gold dome of the State House is visible from this unit.

The living area provides ample conversational seating, a pretty place for socializing and relaxing.

The bedroom has two enormous built out closets with abundant drawers and hanging space and a wall of windows with incredible views. The en suite bathroom is exquisitely appointed with marble counters, marble floor and Poggenpohl cabinets.

A second bathroom mirrors the elegance of its counterpart and maintains a full glass walk-in shower.

There is also a full size stackable washer and dryer discreetly located behind doors as well as a big double coat closet in the entryway.

A monthly $1,494 association fee covers heat, hot water, gas, security, elevator maintenance and valet parking.

Ritz-Carlton brings sophisticated living and elite lifestyle together. Residents share the same famed five-star 24-7 world-class amenities provided to Ritz Carlton hotel guests, including housekeeping/room service, doorman/concierge and garage/valet parking, along with home maintenance. Residents also receive a discounted membership to the 100,000-square-foot Equinox sports and spa facility.

Residents can call from the comfort of their homes and the concierge will arrange everything from handling your travel arrangements to making restaurant reservations around the city. Occupants also receive discounted rooms at world-wide Ritz-Carlton hotels.

Separate elevators for residents and employees are located on each floor as is a refuse removal chute and recycling bin. For added security, elevator use is by a keyed fob, directing traffic to specific floors.

While parking can be at a premium in the city, this unit comes with one garage parking spot with valet service available.

Should company come to visit, the homeowner also receives 30 complimentary two-hour passes per month that can be combined for longer weekend stays.

“It’s the only building in the city that does that,” said Cook.

The building also boasts the largest, private outdoor space in the city.

Location is always a big selling point for homes. Whether you’re going out to dinner or shopping on Newbury Street, going to an opera or attending a theatre performance, most everything is just a short walk away.

The Ritz-Carlton Residences are “in the Midtown section which is the fastest growing location in the city,” said Cook. “It’s so nice to have the Public Garden and Boston Common right up the street.”

Even the Hatch Shell on the Esplanade, famous for the Boston Pops July 4th concert and fireworks, is just a 15-minute walk away.

To explore other places in Boston, the Boylston, Chinatown, Downtown Crossing, and Park Street MBTA subway/bus stations are easily accessible.

Available as either a furnished or unfurnished unit, the home has been freshly painted and is in perfect condition.

“It’s been well maintained” and “is move-in ready,” said Cook.

The home would be perfect for a single person or a couple who work in the city. “It would (also) be unbelievable for just an in-town Boston place,” Cook said.
