Fabulous views are a bonus with this 711-square-foot, one-bedroom unit with one full bathroom and one half bath that George Jedlin of Otis & Ahearn Real Estate has listed for $975,000.

Location, location, location. The familiar real estate mantra is an ideal fit for this prime fifth floor condominium at Rowes Wharf on Boston’s waterfront. Right on the harbor only moments to the Financial District, Seaport restaurants and other attractions such as the New England Aquarium and Faneuil Hall, 20 Rowes Wharf, Unit 503 offers an opportunity to enjoy a comfortable urban lifestyle in an always-vibrant neighborhood.

Fabulous views are a bonus with this 711-square-foot, one-bedroom unit with one full bathroom and one half bath that George Jedlin of Otis & Ahearn Real Estate has listed for $975,000.

Parquet flooring that begins just beyond the nicely sized foyer and is throughout the residence is an understated, but sophisticated element. A nearby half bathroom has a tile floor and a pedestal sink. The chair rail is a subtle traditional touch.

The fully open living-dining room that extends almost the entire length of the unit is a “room” with a view - an incredible one at that. A window wall frames many of Boston’s landmarks and iconic scenes that include the harbor and the surrounding picturesque HarborWalk as well as the Rose Kennedy Greenway. Swaths of Atlantic Avenue are also part of the daily scene.

Where to locate the dining room is strictly a matter of choice in this spacious area. Just off the foyer is certainly an option, but then again so is a spot adjacent to the kitchen. Views are included with either site.

Arranging seating areas for the living room are just as easy and as flexible.

Ample counter and cabinet space (these stretch to the ceiling) are nice elements in the galley kitchen that also has a tile floor. A mini tray ceiling is a touch of tradition in this modern home.

Making it an even more 21st century space is, however, easy. Remove the wall between the kitchen and the living-dining area to create a fully open floor plan and take maximum advantage of city views.

A large double closet that fully customized with open shelving and specialized hanging spaces is handy when entertaining as well as daily storage.

Space is only one highlight in the king bed size master suite. Storage is another as this retreat has three closets. Two double closets provide ample amount of hanging space while the third closet is floor-to-ceiling shelves (five of them) ideal for folded items and/or shoes.

The views, whether inside or out, are other features. A window “wall” showcasing the harbor and Rose Kennedy Greenway 24-7 offers a scenic beginning and end to the day. A full glass pane door incorporated within the wall leads to a private high-rise patio large enough for a table and chair or two.

A Jacuzzi tub and a step-in steam shower with a tile surround put the en suite bathroom on the spa-retreat list. However, the well-crafted vanity successfully achieves the goal of combining beauty with practicality: Electric outlets are installed in the vanity itself leaving the tile backsplash completely intact.

The bonus: this is a big room.

For urbanites, having in-unit laundry facilities is always a perk. The current laundry set-up includes a stackable unit, but the space easily accommodates full-size stackable machines.

Countless non-residential amenities (and very impressive ones) are included, too. Follow HarborWalk, which is right outside the door, left or right, and Boston with all its wonders is right there. The New England Aquarium is right around the corner and Government Center and Faneuil Hall are barely five blocks away in one direction; the North End with innumerable eateries another way.

Relax in the Rose Kennedy Greenway or Christopher Columbus Park or when you want to get out of town, Route 93 is less than a 10-minute drive.

Of course, deeded one garage parking (valet option, too) and additional storage are part of the package along with 24-hour concierge and services from the Boston Harbor Hotel. That includes access to the gym and spa.
