Unit 705 is a 1,401-square-foot condominium with two bedrooms and two full bathrooms and has a flexible floor plan that easily accommodates personal tastes and desires.

A new owner of a seventh floor unit at The Residences of Rowes Wharf on Boston’s prominent waterfront is in for a real treat just in time for summer. All the land and ocean fun that one could ever imagine are just outside your door and beyond.

Originally listed by George Jedlin of Douglas Elliman Real Estate, this home sold on June 1 for $1,850,000 through Kathleen Kennedy of Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage.

Unit 705 is a 1,401-square-foot condominium with two bedrooms and two full bathrooms and has a flexible floor plan that easily accommodates personal tastes and desires.

A “room with a view” is an appropriate description of the spacious living room – with a large formal dining area – that runs almost the entire width of the unit. A wall of windows provides spectacular, ever-changing and compelling harbor views along with shoreline. It is especially beautiful this time of year with the hustle and bustle of activities taking part in and around the Boston Harbor.

A wood-burning fireplace with glass doors and a handsomely detailed mantel (exclusive to two top floors units only) is an attractive indoor focal point.

The large eat-in kitchen with gleaming cherry flooring embraced by detailed bump boards is a striking backdrop in this L-shaped room where lots of counters and cabinets with under-cabinet lighting, a Bosch dishwasher and double ovens are standard.

A full glass pane door with a sidelight opens to a large private deck with captivating harbor views, an enjoyable space and opportunity to savor time with family and friends.

Although the master suite is off the main entrance, a long corridor lined with closets (on both sides) insures that this personal space remains private. The closets are fully customized with shelves on one side and regulation hanging spaces on the other, accommodating all styles and seasons of clothing, footwear and accessories. Mirrored doors allow this area to double as a dressing room. Floor-to-ceiling open shelves offer decorative display space.

The sleeping chamber – another room with a picturesque view of the harbor – is comfortably sized with ample space for a queen/king-size bed and a sitting area. Given the extensive amount of closet space (another double closet with custom inserts is just outside the bedroom proper), prerequisite bedroom furniture is optional.

The en suite bathroom has a jetted soaking tub with a tile surround to help soothe and rejuvenate. The step-in corner shower within a glass enclosure has a flexible showerhead (mounted or handheld) plus a convenient toe-tester.

French doors open to a second bedroom with a double custom closet. A tad smaller than the master bedroom, this space still accommodates a queen-size bed or twin beds easily - an ideal place for guests or children. This room could easily be transformed into an office/library or media/entertainment center. A full glass pane door with sidelight provides access to a private balcony that also overlooks the intriguing harbor.

The adjacent bathroom has a fully tiled tub/shower combination and a sink with a banjo-shaped countertop. The flush-mount mirrored medicine cabinet on a side wall at a 90-degree angle to a broad expanse of mirror not only reflects light, but provides multi-dimensional images.

Having in-home laundry facilities is always a bonus. This huge space has a full size Whirlpool washer and dryer with ample room for storage.

The Residences of Rowes Wharf offers a wide array of treats for those who call this place home, utilizing the same 5-star services as the guests of the Boston Harbor Hotel receive: a 24-hour concierge/doorman and deeded underground parking with valet parking services, full membership to the Rowes Wharf Health Club and Spa with a salt water swimming pool located beneath the Boston Harbor Hotel, as well as ice skating under the landmark Rotunda in the winter. Three on-site restaurants – The Meritage, Rowes Wharf Sea Grille and The Alley Bar – provide an array of fine food and beverages.

The Residences of Rowes Wharf is an ideal location with plenty of non-residential niceties to enjoy, as well. Boston with all its wonders is front and center, offering a plethora of exciting attractions and activities.

By taking a left or a right turn outside the front door, the evolving and beautiful near continuous 43-mile Harborwalk connects the Boston Harbor with Boston’s waterfront neighborhoods and always provides an interesting experience. Among them is a floating stage along the waterfront that provides free concerts and movies during the summer. Pause to take a ride on the Greenway Carousel while strolling along the Rose Kennedy Greenway or spend some time in the New England Aquarium to learn about marine life, just around the corner from home. Christopher Columbus Park offers more green space with additional sights and sounds.

Other neighborhoods to explore can be reached on foot, bike or via the MBTA trains and buses. The Historic North End – noted for its Italian cuisine – is dotted with innumerable restaurants. Fans of the Boston Bruins and Boston Celtics love having the Garden nearby. Government Center plus the fabulous and historic Faneuil Hall Marketplace provide an eclectic mixture of entertainment and eateries.

And for longer excursions, Route 93 is less than a 10-minute drive and water taxis leave Rowes Wharf, making commutes to the airport and other locations easy.

Rowes Wharf itself, – one of 19 former and current wharfs in the port of Boston – has a rich history. In 1666, a protective artillery battery called the Sconce was built at the foot of Fort Hill in the area now known as Rowes Wharf, and in peacetime was manned by one gunner. During the 1740s, the Battery was extended into Boston Harbor and was defended by 35 guns.

John Rowe bought the land in 1764 and built the first Rowes Wharf.

Even in the midst of all the turmoil and changes going on in the area, Rowes Wharf thrived for the next 150 years, thanks mostly to the commercial shipping industry, assisted by the opening of the railroad in 1875 with a ferry connection to Rowes Wharf and the construction of the Atlantic Avenue Elevated in 1901.

By the mid-20th century, due to the changing patterns in shipping and the lack of use, both the railroad and elevated railway closed down.

Rowes Wharf became dilapidated and stayed a place to avoid until the 1980s when a developer came in with a revitalization plan. The entire area is now thriving and very much a desirable place to live, work, play, shop, eat, relax, all while having fun.

Rowes Wharf is considered the “Grand Dame” on Boston’s Waterfront and best known for the Boston Harbor Hotel’s multi-story arch over the wide public plaza between Atlantic Avenue and the Boston Harbor waterfront.

The Boston Harbor Hotel is the principal occupant of the current Rowes Wharf building, which was completed in 1987. The Residences at Rowes Wharf – located at 10 & 20 Rowes Wharf – has 1,200 condos ranging in size from 800-square-foot one-bedroom units to 3,200-plus square-foot multi-bedroom homes with two balconies and spectacular Harbor views.
