There’s no more desirable place to live in the City of Boston than Beacon Hill. Walking through the quiet streets, there’s a sense of history and refined tranquility.

An exceptionally sunny four-bedroom townhome with nearly 3,000-square-feet in the very heart of illustrious Beacon Hill is a perfect place for family living. Sally Brewster of Brewster and Berkowitz Real Estate has listed this treasure at 90 Pinckney St. for $2.985 million.

Originally built in the early 1800s, this delightful home went through an amazing major renovation a few years ago.

Blending the charm of a bygone era with an assortment of modern amenities, including central air, the results are simply stunning. This home offers the best of both the refinement of the past with the luxury comforts of today. It’s perfect for families with kids of all ages or for empty nesters, especially if they have family members who like to visit. Everyone will love coming to visit you here in such a delightful home as this is with all that it has to offer.

The spacious front-to-back living room-dining room on the first floor is graced with beautiful parquet oak flooring and high ceilings with soft recessed lighting that is easy on the eyes.

Large Victorian windows on both ends of the area afford plenty of light and offer splendid views of the peaceful world outdoors. Adding to the ambiance are fireplaces in both the living room and dining room.

The living room has a built-in entertainment center with cabinets and shelves. Two large windows look outwards onto picturesque Pinckney Street.

The south-facing dining room has room for a table large enough for many people to enjoy a fine meal. A nearby newly built powder room and a coat closet are also on hand, making entertaining on this level easy and enjoyable.

The bright and sunny chef’s kitchen on the lower garden level has a modern look and feel with stainless steel appliances (including a gas stove and oven) and beautiful granite countertops. There’s also a myriad of storage space, including a good-sized pantry that will hold plenty of food.

A dual-purpose island hosts a sink, counter and dishwasher on one side and a built-in bench on the other - a perfect place to add a table and more chairs to create a convenient breakfast nook.

The kitchen opens up to a very large and inviting family room. This great space includes a giant fireplace that is flanked with thoughtful built-ins around a desk area on one side along with cabinets and a counter on the other side.

Of course, there is a lot of flexible in this home. For those who want their dining room on the same level as the kitchen, it’s easy to use the garden level family room as the dining room and to use the entire first level as perhaps a very large living room – family room. Everyone has their own ideas of how they want their home to be laid out and there are plenty of easy ways to use this space.

Something everyone will enjoy is to go out the door from the current garden level family room and discover another rare treat – a private outdoor area with convenient access to Cedar Lane Way. This delightful area is embraced by white brick walls adorned with beautiful gardens.

This back patio also has a mini-kitchen featuring a refrigerator as well as a grill and prep space.

The colorful brick pavers have plenty of room for tables and chairs, making entertaining family and friends or simply sitting outdoors on those warm days of spring and summer a pure delight. And with the built-ins, it can really be enjoyed any time of year.

When ready for a great night of sleep, head up to the second floor. This entire level is the master suite. It is a world of bedroom comfort that is hard to top.

This magnificent suite has slender built-ins on either side of the dedicated bed space to display a selection of books and pretty décor. The large bay windows on an adjacent wall, overlooking the peaceful charm of Pinckney Street, create an ideal nook for reading or just relaxing while savoring the beauty of the Beacon Hill world outside.

Another very large fireplace adds to the character and the feeling of the historic past.

There will be no trouble finding space to put things - a very large walk-in closet is outfitted with shelves, drawers and hanging rods for plenty of clothing, shoes and accessories.

The newly-renovated master bath is refined and filled with luxury features and finishes. This large spa-like marble bathroom is sunny, spacious and stylish, boasting an irresistible oversized shower with multiple showerheads, a relaxing soaking tub and a large vanity with two sinks.

This floor also includes the new laundry room that can accommodate a stackable full size washer and dryer.

The two top stories consist of flexible floor space. While three attractive rooms of various sizes and a newly renovated hall bathroom with a lovely blue tile floor and a shower can be found on the lower of these two levels (the third floor), the upper floor (fourth floor) has two pretty dormered rooms separated by a sliding door and a hall bathroom with a tub. These rooms can be used as bedrooms, a nursery, hobby, game/playroom or an in-home office, for example. One or both areas could be easily be transformed into a guest or in-law suite.

A full, unfinished basement has plenty of room for storage. There is on-street parking with a sticker available, while purchasing a spot at nearby garages is also feasible. Public transportation is nearby, too.

As the saying goes, location is everything and this home lives up to that phrase. Beacon Hill is different from other Boston neighborhoods – it is truly a village enjoying a hardware store, drug store, the Beacon Hill Civic Association and so much more.

Pinckney Street is located in one of the most peaceful and quiet places on Beacon Hill. You won’t be bothered with lots of traffic or the noise of the city.

No matter your age, the best of Boston is within walking distance (or public transportation) where you will find plenty of opportunities to shop and dine on Charles and Newbury streets, as well as enjoy the entertainment and sheer beauty of the Esplanade, Boston Common, the Boston Public Garden and Charles River, for instance. Houses of worship and schools are also plentiful.

Perhaps one of the best aspects of living in this location, ideal for growing families or for empty nesters, is that although “you’re in the heart of the city with much to do and see, the home transforms into an oasis of peace and quiet once inside,” said Brewster. “You don’t know you’re in the city.”
