Built in 2015, this remarkable home that guarantees detail, workmanship and high-end living is listed by Alexander Lisek of Engel and Volkers for $1,100,000. It has all the benefits of living close to the city for a fraction of the cost of other Boston neighborhoods.

Unique, elegant and beautiful are just a few of the many adjectives that describe a condominium located in a tree-lined residential area surrounded by lots of parks and playgrounds at 597 Adams St. in Dorchester.

Built in 2015, this remarkable home that guarantees detail, workmanship and high-end living is listed by Alexander Lisek of Engel and Volkers for $1,100,000. It has all the benefits of living close to the city for a fraction of the cost of other Boston neighborhoods.

With more than 2,700 square feet of living space that includes three bedrooms in addition to an en suite unit/office and three-and-a-half bathrooms, there is also a two-car garage with a newly paved driveway that can fit another two vehicles. The new owners will also enjoy the private yard and three decks. 

Unit Two is dignified and graceful, yet welcoming and functional, all at the same time.

Opening a beautiful glass door with sidelights and entering into the crystal-chandeliered foyer, one is struck by the mirrored wainscoting walls, lighted built-ins showcasing favorite art pieces and the expansive columned doorways overseeing the first floor areas, including a powder room.

The open floor plan includes a sprawling living/dining room adjacent to the spacious kitchen. The beautiful high trey ceilings with triple-crown molding (mirroring the foyer), recessed lighting and soft toned walls amplify the openness while the fireplace in the living area delivers an element of warmth and coziness. The three pendants in the dining section add another touch of class.

The wide planks and softer look of the European hardwood floors throughout sets this home apart from many American homes that typically feature shiny surfaces.

Another unique feature that draws one’s attention are the striking floor-to-ceiling windows that double as doors opening to the long porch running the length of the home and the large side deck sitting just outside the dining area adjacent to the kitchen. With simple adjustments, these windows can be cracked slightly to let air flow through like regular windows or swing open like doors for easy passage.

The kitchen has all the amenities expected in a home of this caliber. Stainless steel appliances include a center-opening refrigerator with bottom freezer, a five-burner KitchenAid cooktop, double ovens and a dishwasher. There is also a built-in beverage cooler.

Beautiful granite counters with lots of cabinets and cupboards along with a square island and a custom rolling table that slides out or retracts to accommodate the needs are just some of the admired features in the kitchen.

The large master suite on the second level has a generous custom walk-in closet/dressing room showcasing a myriad of storage options, including a sliding drawer for jewelry.

The en suite bathroom has a double vanity with four drawers and a marble countertop. Three small sconces sit on either side and in between the two silver-framed mirrors over two vessel sinks. What sets this bathroom apart from many other en suites is the private spa-like setting. A gas fireplace and television sit adjacent to a window on the two walls above a luxurious elliptical soaking tub while a glass-enclosed shower rests next to a large cedar sauna.

Two additional bedrooms and a shared bathroom with tub/shower along with a full size washer and dryer closet space encircle the hall on this level.

Stairs from the second floor lead up to the large L-shaped roof deck. With electricity and water accessibility, plenty of space for tables and chairs plus benches and plants for added ambiance, there is plenty of room for relaxing and entertaining, enjoying a bar-be-que and the views of Back Bay with the Prudential and Hancock buildings off in the distance.

The lower level has the garage with a storage closet and utility room. The bonus room has a tiled bathroom with a shower stall. Both the bonus room and the garage have access to each other and separate doors to the outside.

The bonus room can be used for just about any purpose: a bedroom, maybe for a nanny; a studio, perhaps for special hobbies or multi-media interests; or an office, possibly for personal or business.

The oversized garage can easily accommodate two large SUVs. A fan, controlled by a timer in the house, can dissipate the car exhaust.

While there is a main fuse box in the utility room, there is also another panel located on the second floor.

“It’s nice to have that feature so you don’t have to run downstairs” if a fuse on the second floor ever trips, Lisek said.

The exterior of the home and the grounds are simply delightful. The brand new blacktop driveway is large enough to accommodate two vehicles. With three private decks/porches plus a lovely fenced in partly sunny/partly shady yard and garden area, there is plenty of room for solitude and reflection or fun and frivolity.

Since there are only two owners in the association, condo fees are very low at just $289 per month, and there is not a lot of commotion from a multitude of families, as with some condos, to distract from the peace and quiet. An automatic locked, gated iron fence and motion detection lighting provide safety and security.

Originally, Dorchester (locally sometimes referred to as “Dot”) was a separate town, founded – just a few months before the city of Boston was established – by the Puritans who emigrated in 1630 from Dorchester, Dorset County, England. Annexed to Boston in 1870, Dorchester is currently the largest and most populous neighborhood in Boston and comprises many smaller sections and squares.

Dorchester is undergoing a renaissance. Many of the older homes from as far back as the 1800s are being revitalized and modernized or being totally demolished with new ones being built from the ground up.

The demographics of Dorchester are also changing, embracing a more diverse population. An assortment of people, including families and professionals, are moving into the area because it’s more affordable, said Lisek.

“You get more for your money, there’s room to grow in equity for your property, and you get a tax exemption,” he said.

Dorchester is one of the hottest neighborhoods in Boston. “You’re out of the city, but you feel like you’re living in the city,” Lisek said.

Adams Village has a supermarket plus numerous shops and restaurants, parks and playgrounds, while Fields Corner is one of Dorchester’s largest and most diverse business districts.

Make every move count when strolling, running or bicycling at the nearby Lower Neponset River Trail, Neponset River Greenway and the Dot Greenway, connecting with other places of interest along the way.

Pope John Paul II Park Reservation (site of a former drive-in theater), Dorchester Park (featuring Family Fun Day and The Annual Classic Car Show), and Franklin Park (for sports, kite flying and the zoo) offer additional fun and adventures. There is plenty of entertainment at Strand Theatre and the Great Boston House Concert, as well as lots of attractions at the historic John F. Kennedy Presidential Library and Museum and Commonwealth Museum.

Local places of worship; public, private and charter schools, colleges plus libraries; and nearby medical facilities provide spiritual and educational enrichment and healthcare essentials. A short trip on public transportation can get you most anywhere in a matter of minutes while a vehicle can take you to places further away.
