While most city condos have common outdoor space, if they have any at all, Residence 6A has an amazing 1,800 square feet of alfresco living, which can be accessed from several rooms in the home, spread out between two private exclusive decks that span the length of the unit.

There are many people who would love to have their own private oasis that allows them to admire the Boston skyline, the Seaport District, Boston Harbor and the islands and beyond. A stunning home with those incredible views now has a new owner.

Robert Cohen of Engel & Volkers originally listed a sixth-floor penthouse – only two in this building – at 540 East Broadway St. in South Boston. Not long ago, this exceptional home – with a mind-boggling amount of space for a city dwelling – was purchased for $1,450,000 with Guy Assetta of Home Town Brokerage.

That prime outdoor space combined with more than 2,000 square feet of deluxe indoor living spanning two stories makes this home an ultimate entertaining utopia. Whether one looks out from the bedroom, loft, living room, dining room or decks, the 360-degree panoplies of the city cannot be beat.

The main level features a commanding open floor plan. The wet bar, with cabinets and storage, makes entertaining a breeze while a meal is cooking on the high-end stainless steel appliances. Plenty of storage in the kitchen includes a pantry with sliding shelves and deep drawers in the island for an assortment of cooking sundries.

The island makes a great place for two or three to enjoy an informal meal or breakfast or to grab a quick snack while a gas fireplace in the dining area adds to the ambiance of any meal.

The lower deck, with the backdrop of the grand city, is an entertainer’s dream. Accessible from the living room and dining room sliders, this space is perfect for an after-dinner gathering while enjoying warm summer nights or cool fall and spring evenings.

The first floor master bedroom easily showcases a king-sized bed with lots of space to spare, an oversized lighted customized walk-in closet and striking views of the Financial District as well as the Prudential and John Hancock buildings in the Back Bay from the oversized windows.

The en suite bathroom adds a touch of elegance with marble tiles, a tub and glass-enclosed shower.

The second floor unfolds to a spectacular flexible loft-style space with a gas fireplace, wet bar and a full bathroom. A wall of windows opens up to the second deck. This 22-and-a-half-by-55-foot structure is an unparalleled space all of its own and coupled with the loft, makes a private haven in its own right.

“You are literally at the tallest point of South Boston,” said Rodney Scott of Engel & Volkers. “It will never be an obstructed view.” And, “you are high enough that you don’t get too much street sound.”

With a hot tub on the upper deck and capacity for tables, chairs, a grill, couches and more, this space creates the perfect spot for an evening of entertaining or a peaceful night with a few friends or family.

Another asset that the buyer considered when making this quality investment was the parking. In most areas of Boston, parking spaces are at a premium – if they can even be found. The new residents can enjoy a heated garage with two parking spaces, available for a mere $60 per month. The home also has a convenient laundry area with a washer and dryer.

The pet-friendly building, which is 80 percent owner occupied, appeals to people of all ages and interests, from young professionals and empty nesters and families alike.

All of this in one of South Boston’s sought-after locations, right on the famous Saint Patrick’s Day parade route, is an easy walk to all the hottest new shops, bars and restaurants this desirable neighborhood has to offer.

Boston Candlepin that creates a nostalgic environment for family fun bowling and The Broadway Dog Spa that takes care of your four-legged furry friends – located on East Broadway Street is just a short walk on the way to Dorchester Street where many other neighborhood businesses can be found.

Beautiful parks and fun beaches are either within walking distance or less than a five minute drive as well.

When getting into the heart of downtown Boston or some of its landmarks is desired, public transportation, including a bus line that stops in front of the building, is nearby.
