Unit 2A at 10 Farnsworth is a stunningly beautiful home with three bedrooms, two full bathrooms and a powder room. It's also the last of the units available in the magnificent building. Jillian Reig and Steve Losordo of Compass have listed this 2,113-square-foot, second-floor beauty for $2,995,000.
The Fort Point neighborhood, tucked between the Seaport District and Fort Point Channel, is one of the city’s rapidly growing treasures. It is a place that more and more people shopping for homes are discovering with great joy.
One of the newest gems in this area is a luxury condo development at 10 Farnsworth St.
Unit 2A at 10 Farnsworth is a stunningly beautiful home with three bedrooms, two full bathrooms and a powder room. It’s also the last of the units available in the magnificent building.
Jillian Reig and Steve Losordo of Compass have listed this 2,113-square-foot, second-floor beauty for $2,995,000.
According to Reig, “10 Farnsworth is a unique product for Boston. With only nine homes, it offers boutique-style living with direct elevator access, garage parking and ultra-luxurious finishes (with no common hallways) in the hottest neighborhood in the city.”
10 Farnsworth as a building has received architectural awards from the Boston Preservation Alliance, the AIA and the Boston Society of Architects. David Nagahiro of Boston-based CBT Architects was the lead designer for this development.
“The juxtaposition of this glass jewel-box of a building and its neighboring 100-year-old brick and beam Boston Wharf buildings will, without a doubt, make it an iconic building. Architecturally, it’s intentionally the opposite of everything down there and I think CBT knocked the cover off the ball with their design. It’s a true gem,” said Losordo.
The large, fluid kitchen-living-dining room area invites relaxation and comfort. The solid wide-plank European oak flooring adds cohesive first-rate flare while the floor-to-ceiling windows affords the room a bright and airy feeling with astonishing views of the Seaport area.
The kitchen is a haven of culinary joy for every chef. It boasts plenty of marble countertops, custom European lacquer cabinetry and Gaggenau appliances.
Where to enjoy those fine meals emanating from this upscale kitchen? There’s an island with seating for six as well as a gorgeous dining area with plenty of room for a sizable table that seats at least eight people.
Entertainment opportunities spread into the spacious living room. Sitting around the large gas fireplace creates a warm and cozy spot to relax and chat.
The master bedroom is a grand place to get a great night of sleep and wake up to a new day refreshed and renewed. The en suite bathroom is spacious and includes a double vanity and large walk-in shower.
The Italian built-in master suite wardrobe area is jumbo and even has a door leading to the corridor – a very handy feature that makes packing and getting suitcases out of the home for travel easy.
The bedroom next to the master suite is also sizable and has a large closet.
Both of these bedrooms are very near the home’s laundry area with plenty of room for a side-by-side washer and dryer.
The third bedroom is found on the opposite side of the unit. The en suite bathroom there includes a tub-shower that can also be accessed from the hallway.
A very large common roof terrace offers a fun-filled outdoor living space that’s perfect for mixing and mingling with guests and other residents. The terrace has a gas fireplace and wonderful skyline views.
This unit also includes central air conditioning and the basic Smart Home technology system. It is wired to include enhanced Smart Home features if desired. You can reach this inviting new home on the second floor by stairs or by elevator.
All residents of 10 Farnsworth have access to an on-site garage with an automated parking system. One parking space is part of the package for Unit 2A.
In addition to the homes at 10 Farnsworth, there is also 1,400 square feet of ground-floor retail space in the building.
Losordo said, “It’s the perfect building for someone who wants ultimate privacy at home, but at the same time, be just steps away from everything Fort Point and the Seaport have to offer.”
“I lived here in the early 2000s and we had Lucky’s and The A Street Diner,” said Losordo. “I think Fort Point has changed in that it now has every convenience you’d want in a neighborhood.
Residents will enjoy being within sight of the Fort Point Channel for many maritime activities. For indoor fun, the Boston Children's Museum and Boston Fire Museum are nearby. Many excellent eateries including Sportello, Bastille Kitchen and the Flour Bakery & Cafe in the Fort Point/Seaport District are a very short walk away.
Residents have discovered that their neighborhood holds a special place in the city.
“Fort Point has kept its industrial and artistic character,” Losordo said.
One unique aspect is the Fort Point Arts Community with a membership of more than 300 artists. In addition, The Institute of Contemporary Art is also close by.
The 10 Farnsworth residents also appreciate easy access to major transportation points in the Downtown Boston area, including highways and public transportation. The building is within walking distance of historic South Station, which is used by thousands of commuter rail, MBTA and Amtrak passengers on a daily basis. Connections to the T’s Red Line and Silver Line are here, as well.
The Seaport District is the fastest growing neighborhood in the city with other new residential developments at 320 on D, 100 Pier, 49 Melcher, 315 on A, Parklane and Waterside Place.
