Millennium Tower at 1 Franklin St. is not only the tallest residential building in the city - it is also in the highest class of luxury living.

Listed by Judy Pagano of Gibson Sotheby’s International Realty for $4,700,000, Unit 4304 is proudly waiting for a new owner.
This spectacular three-bedroom, three-bathroom home occupies 2,096 square feet on the 43rd floor.
This “Grand Residence” corner home boasts walls of floor-to-ceiling windows with a spectacular panorama of the Back Bay, Beacon Hill, Downtown, Charles River and The Boston Harbor. From this home, you can see the city’s tallest structures and the classic and historic buildings that make up Beacon Hill and the surrounding area. You can watch the ebb and flow of the ocean lapping against the beautiful harbor islands or the gentle ripples of the Charles River as the graceful sailboats glide by. You can the spot the action on the Boston Common or observe the planes coming and going from Logan Airport. And when, and if, you have had enough of the lights, camera, action on the outside, you can make it all disappear with a touch of a button that controls the window shades.
Of course, great window views are not the only facet to love about this home. Like all the homes at Millennium Tower, other impressive elements include contemporary design, meticulous craftsmanship and exceptional designer finishes.
The open flow of the sprawling kitchen-dining-living room area, showcasing a delightful gas fireplace, is totally stunning – ideal for entertaining or taking a quiet moment for solitude.
The open gourmet chef's kitchen is a joy for anyone who enjoys using elite stainless steel appliances such as the Wolf five-burner cooktop with a Faber hood, Wolf built-in double wall oven and drawer microwave with glass touch controls.
While the polar white high-gloss Poggenpohl doors enhance the cabinets and the matching panels conceal the Sub-Zero built-in refrigerator and Miele dishwasher, the polished Italian Calacatta marble grace the counters, backsplash and the grand waterfall-edged island, which accommodates the built-in Sub-Zero wine cooler and sink.
The spacious master bedroom suite is loaded with convenience and opulence. There will never be a problem finding space to put things away, not with four jumbo closets, two of which are doubles. The views from this vantage point include the iconic Custom House and Financial District.
Preparations are a breeze in the luxurious en suite marble bathroom. The polished tundra grey 1¼-inch solid marble countertops pop against the pine white décor print double vanity by Poggenpohl. While there is plenty of room in the polished elegant white marble stall shower with frameless full-height glass enclosure and Grohe rain head and handheld shower, a spa-like tub with matching marble surround invites you in for a relaxing, soothing, fragrant bubble bath. Toes will stay warm and toasty in the winter with radiant heat under the honed white elegant marble floors.
The second and third bedrooms are as spacious and sun-drenched as the master providing picturesque views as far as the eye can see. While one of these bedrooms has its own bathroom with a glass-enclosed walk-in shower and single sink vanity, the other could easily be used as an office, media room or hobby center.
Additional closets and the laundry area, which includes a stackable Whirlpool washer-dryer combo, are located in the hallway.
Two valet garage parking spaces along with 24-hour concierge/doorman/security services are also included.
