Unit 404 in the North Tower at 3 Avery St. is the largest and most desirable currently available condominium at the Ritz.
The North and South Towers that comprise the Ritz-Carlton Residences at 1-3 Avery St., centrally located in the vibrant Midtown-Back Bay neighborhood, carry the world-wide signature that guarantees quality, value and service. The deluxe contemporary homes, where comfort and prestige meet, are all top-notch.
Unit 404 in the North Tower at 3 Avery St. is the largest and most desirable currently available condominium at the Ritz. It spans 1,748 square feet, accommodating two bedrooms with three full bathrooms and is listed with the Robb Cohen Team of Engel & Volkers for $1,248,988.
A most stylish, spacious and sought-after well-appointed open floor plan – great for entertaining – showcases newly installed gleaming hardwood floors, high ceilings with recessed lighting and grand-sized windows throughout.
The kitchen features sparkling white cabinetry with under-mount lighting that accentuate exquisite granite countertops while a wall of windows amplify the colorful views. Any chef or caterer will feel right at home working in this kitchen with a gas stove-top and oven with above-mounted microwave plus dishwasher.
A pass-through counter from the kitchen to the spacious formal dining room is a lovely touch that makes a perfect spot to leave appetizers and drinks for guests to sample or a quick way to put a meal on the table. Adding two or three seats turns this area into a cozy breakfast bar for informal meals or grabbing a quick bite before heading out for work or leisure.
The unit boasts one of the best locations in the building with views overlooking action-packed Washington and Avery streets from the full corner floor-to-ceiling wall of windows in the generous-sized living room where you will find an alcove, perfect for a desk, media center, display shelves or a dining area, if desired.
Two oversized bedrooms – on opposite sides of the unit to ensure privacy – enjoy excellent closet space and feature updated lustrous en-suite marble-appointed bathrooms with combination tub/showers. A third marble-appointed full bathroom is off the large foyer along with two conveniently-placed closets.
There is a lot of flexibility with the use of space in this delightful home. For example, it is possible to wall off the dining room, making it an ideal place for another bedroom, den, office or hobby room – mirroring some of the other units in the building, according to Cohen. The large foyer could easily handle an arrangement of furniture for additional character and comfort.
This home is not only defined by sophisticated style and luxurious finishes, but equipped to deliver legendary Ritz-Carlton service.
The residents are assured safety, security and hospitality in their building with 24-hour world-class concierge services and uniformed door attendants, two elevators and a residents’ clubhouse plus all the first-class amenities that the Ritz Carlton Hotel across the street provides, including in-unit dining and housekeeping (fee-for-service) and valet parking (complementary).
On the third floor of the North Tower is a very large, beautifully appointed, exclusive clubhouse. A small kitchen with a refrigerator and a dishwasher, a powder room and plenty of couches and chairs create a wonderful place to entertain family and friends and other guests without having to go out into the elements. The room is also available for rent so hosting a small party or gathering with a caterer is a definite possibility.
The Ritz Carlton Hotel, across the street and just steps to the Theater District with the famed Opera House, is the perfect place for a pre-show dinner at the Artisan Bistro featuring modern American cuisine or post-performance nightcap at the 1950s-inspired Avery Bar. Join the Club Lounge on the top floor of the hotel for distinctive amenities and an exclusive experience to unwind with family and friends, settle into a quiet workspace with breathtaking views or indulge in an array of complimentary culinary presentations.
To enhance and enrich your body, mind and spirit, the Equinox Sports Club and Spa – a 114,000 square-foot facility adjoining the hotel – offers residents a discounted membership rate while the state-of-the art AMC Loews multiplex offers the latest screenings and IMAX/RealD 3D experiences. Call the concierge from your in-unit phone, and they will arrange everything from restaurant reservations to travel arrangements including discounted rooms at Ritz-Carlton hotels around the world.
Condo fees are $2,813 per month. Some of the items covered are heat, hot water, laundry facilities, interior and exterior building maintenance, landscaping and snow removal. Parking spaces are available for a nominal fee.
While the Ritz Towers were originally built in 2004 by the Millennium Partners as fully furnished extended stay apartments, the demand for housing, and condos in particular, increased in the city. Two years later, the residents were given first option to purchase the units before the builders converted them into condominiums.
Soaring over 35 stories, the Ritz-Carlton Residences overlook the beautiful oasis of the Public Gardens; iconic Boston Common, the country’s oldest public park and beginning of the historically significant Freedom Trail; and the Charles River winding along the Esplanade on one side and the effervescence of the Boston Harbor and Islands on the other.
The pedestrian-friendly city is a place where history, art and culture come together filled with gorgeous architecture and corner squares. Awaken the senses as you cheer on the world-class street performers, experience the cuisine at the world-famous Food Colonnade, and observe the original artifacts in Faneuil Hall Marketplace between Government Center and the Waterfront; indulge in a shopping frenzy at the designer boutiques and art galleries on Newbury Street in the Back Bay; stroll along the charming cobblestoned streets lit by antique lanterns and dotted with Victorian brick row houses in Beacon Hill.
The property is just a short walk to public transportation and near major highways for work, weekend getaways or vacations.
“You know when you live and buy at the Ritz your investment is quite secure. The Ritz name carries a lot of prestige throughout the world,” Cohen said.
“Right now I believe this is probably one of the best purchases in the city for the dollar per square foot with a great amenity package,” Cohen said. “It’s a lot of space for the price.”
