The entire flexible and open flow parlor level is a perfect location for any type of gathering, formal or informal, where one wants to entertain guests with the sophistication and personal touches one would expect.
A quiet, three-unit, professionally managed, beautiful brick building with curb appeal sits at 69 Rutland St. in the South End of Boston where Unit One is up for sale.
Completely renovated to the highest standards with many distinctive features, this beautiful three-bedroom, three-and-a-half-bath triplex home with 2,349 square feet of living space is listed for $1,995,000 with Paul Whaley and Charles Ring of Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage.
The entire flexible and open flow parlor level is a perfect location for any type of gathering, formal or informal, where one wants to entertain guests with the sophistication and personal touches one would expect. You have a gorgeous living room, and elegant dining room, a well-equipped kitchen with an informal dining area or den.
The spacious living-dining room showcases magnificent crown moldings, ceiling medallions and immaculate hardwood floors (throughout). Built-in customs shelves grace the wall beside the charming carved white marble arched surround wood-burning fireplace, a focal fascination. Large windows flood the room with natural light; dual purpose plantation shutters add a touch of class while adding privacy and light control.
The adjacent kitchen is bright and airy. Sleek cabinets – two with glass fronts – and built-in shelving add lots of storage and display space. Appliances include a Sub-Zero refrigerator, gas stove and Bosch dishwasher. A breakfast bar/island with seating for two opens to an informal dining area or den.
Should a gathering call for an outdoor setting, the home’s 8x19-foot deck has plenty of space for tables and chairs plus comfortable couches. Because access is through a door from the kitchen, entertaining is easy.
Carpeted stairs with an elegant wooden handrail lead to the second level where the master bedroom suite is located. The bedroom showcases a lovely decorative fireplace.
Hidden behind a pocket door is a lighted, spacious custom designed walk-in closet with a myriad of shelving and hanging spaces. A large walk-in shower with frosted doors contains built-in toiletry shelves along with a shower wand and rain head, in the en suite bathroom,
A second bedroom, with a wall of custom built-ins, also has an en suite bathroom with a decorative penny tile floor and a shower/tub combo.
A hallway provides additional storage space while a modest mudroom features storage for footwear, hooks for outerwear and benches to grace the art of dressing along with an egress to a personal parking space - large enough for one large car or two small cars parked in tandem.
The lower level was finished in 2015 and the flexible space can be closed off from the rest of the home by sliding a door at the stairway.
“It’s great for guests or kids,” Whaley said. “It’s very well done.”
The main area can be used as a media room, den or children’s playroom that features a flat screen television and a white board for doodling.
A guest bedroom can be tucked away as well with another sliding door.
A hallway has a sink and a small refrigerator, with plenty of storage shelves and room for a full size washer and dryer - all hidden behind doors and cabinets. A full bathroom is also on this floor.
“This is a perfect place for young couples, families or older empty-nesters,” Whaley said. “A lot of people don’t want vertical living… on four or five levels. There is a lot of living on only three levels in this spacious home.”
According to Whaley, real estate taxes for the property are just $13,517 per year based on the 1,532 square feet of the upper two levels. It is common practice that the city of Boston does not include the square footage of garden levels when assessing the taxes.
Location is another factor to consider when purchasing a home. This deluxe home is located on a prime block of the South End. Homeowners have their choice of popular local eateries such as the South End Buttery, The Beehive, Toro, The Gallows and Boston Chop, plus many more, all within walking distance. Public transportation is also close by.
Health care (Boston University School of Medicine/ Boston Medical Center and South End Community Health Center) and higher education (Northeastern University and Wentworth Institute’s Ruggles campus) are big proponents of the South End and are within walking/cycling distance.
The building is pet friendly. There are plenty of small pocket parks nearby (Blackstone Square and Franklin Square) that are great spots for exercising your four-footed friends and plenty of compassionate pet care (The South Bay Veterinary Group and Boston Veterinary Clinic on Tremont and Boston Veterinary Care on Chandler) is available.
