Bowdoin Place on illustrious Beacon Hill welcomes new neighbors. Originally listed by Alan Fincke of Alan Fincke Residential Broker, Unit 207 at 10 Bowdoin St. – one of the larger premier homes prominently located in the front of the building – was recently sold through Eliott Levine of Marston Beacon Hill, Inc. for $1,496,625.
Residents and guests alike will be in awe of the uniqueness of this charming home. Aesthetically pleasing to the eyes, this corner unit, featuring 1,740 square feet of sumptuous living, showcases graceful curves and gentle roundness as depicted by the rare circular wainscoted entry foyer and the elegant curvature of the living room and dining room window walls.
The home boasts a pleasing floor plan – open and flowing and perfectly placed – quintessential for entertaining. The spacious living room with 10 large windows that flood the home with the warmth of natural lighting sits adjacent to the sunny dining room and shiny kitchen, complemented by lovely hardwood flooring and high ceilings.
The chef’s kitchen features professional GE stainless appliances, granite counters with custom stone backsplash and maple cabinetry with sliding drawers, convenient for retrieving needed items. Seating at the circular breakfast bar is available for informal meals or snacks and congregating with the chef during meal preparation.
The sleeping chambers and bathrooms were designed with form, function and frou-frou in mind, all clustered around the foyer, along with a large coat closet. Which space will realize the honor of accommodating the master suite?
One bedroom boasts a large walk-in closet with shelving and storage galore and large windows with incredible views. The spacious en suite marble bathroom features a relaxing soaking tub, a stall shower and a vanity with two sinks.
Another room, with an adjacent powder room, has a large closet for storage and several windows providing natural light. This space can be used as a bedroom or nursery, a cozy den or office.
The wing on the other side of the foyer is a haven of luxury, privacy and comfort. The bedroom has almost a whole wall of windows, nine-foot ceilings, a double-wide closet and an en suite marble-floored bathroom with a tub and shower. An adjoining hallway closet holds a stackable washer and dryer.
The design and construction of this professionally managed boutique building was thoughtfully planned and thoroughly executed. There are 75 residential condominiums, townhomes and penthouses on floors two through five while commercial businesses, including a pharmacy, bank and daycare center are on the first floor, along with deeded climate-controlled storage units and a bicycle rack.
The Residence Library on the fourth floor is spacious and gracious. It also has a wet bar for extended entertaining. Residents can reserve this space for family celebrations, such as a bridal/baby showers, birthday/anniversary parties and holiday affairs or simple gatherings before heading out for a night on the town – perhaps dinner and dancing or theater and a nightcap. This room can accommodate business functions, as well.
Order in a hearty breakfast, then spend the day with family and friends on an architectural, garden or duck tour; enjoy the multi-sensory experiences at the Museum of Science and Mugar Omni Theater; or cheer for your favorite teams at Fenway Park and TD Garden.
There are multiple elevators, wide doorways and ramps in hallways, establishing a welcoming and accessible place for all. Soundproofing between common walls, cork between floors and very high quality windows creates a quiet oasis in the midst of the city. Another unique feature in this home is the HVAC with electric baseboard boosters.
A concierge is on duty Mondays through Fridays and can collect parcels, then display a digital message to let residents know they await pickup in the package room.
While a well-appointed lobby is a pleasant place to greet residents and guests alike, the beautifully landscaped gardens and park benches adjacent to the building offer a delightful outdoor interlude.
Bowdoin Place also comes with a popular perk: direct access to a deeded space in an underground parking garage. Additional parking for residents and guests is available at the adjacent Saltonstall Building – accessed from Bowdoin Place – with special rates. This commercial space hosts a Dunkin’ Donuts for those who desire a fresh cup of coffee sans the outdoor elements.
Location is a key feature of Bowdoin Place. It is on a street with a rich Boston tradition. Bowdoin Street extends from the top of Beacon Street, down Beacon Hill to Cambridge Street near the West End. Originally called “Middlecott Street” as early as the 1760s, it was renamed after Governor James Bowdoin in 1805.
Bowdoin Street has been the home of legendary people such as Charles Bulfinch and John F. Kennedy and hosts St. John the Evangelist, built in 1831.
Bowdoin Place is in walking distance to… everywhere. Located at the intersection of Cambridge and Bowdoin streets, there are many points of interest within a 10-minute or less walk, including Whole Foods, Trader Joe’s and Roche Brothers, along with numerous restaurants, shops and museums. Bowdoin Place also enjoys easy access to Government Center, the Financial District and the Waterfront plus lots of other landmarks, such as the State House, Boston Common, the Esplanade, Faneuil Hall and Massachusetts General Hospital. With public transportation and access to major thoroughfares, getting round the city and beyond is easy.
