A gorgeous five-story brownstone in the fashionable Back Bay recently underwent a gut-renovation. This meticulous metamorphosis, with impeccable attention to detail, celebrates an innovative and luxurious design of four stunning residences at 67 Saint Botolph St.

This resourceful building features all new custom windows and exterior doors by Marvin, a rubber roof system and hi-efficiency HVAC by Mitsubishi.

Lots of windows amplify the natural light and provide exceptional views of the pleasant neighborhood.

The focus this week is on the two middle homes – Units 2 and 3, similar in size, shape and upscale amenities, yet each have defining personalities. These 1,400-square-foot homes include two spacious bedrooms, two ultra-luxury bathrooms and a private terrace. The list price for Unit 2 is $1,799,000. Unit 3 is listed for $1,699,000.

The pristine, bright and airy Chef’s kitchens are clean, simple and functional. An L-shaped wall of white custom cabinetry by Crown Point as well as the sleek Carrara marble counters and backsplash hosts the stainless Thermador appliances.

The back wall entertains the cooking area, featuring a five-burner cooktop with hood insert, a 30-inch oven and a microwave drawer, while the adjoining wall integrates the 36-inch refrigerator. A dishwasher and Kohler stainless steel sink with a Franke stainless steel pulldown faucet sits in the large island with matching cabinetry and countertop and seating for three. A bonus feature is the 24-inch stainless beverage center.

A variety of lighting options – two chic pendant glass bulbs over the island, recessed and under-cabinet – along with a large picture window enhance the ambiance.

This fine collection opens to the living-dining room area. This spacious spot offers a flexible layout for furniture arrangement. While some may opt to add a smaller table and chairs for intimate dining in the window bay, others might choose to host larger gatherings in an area on the opposite wall.

Symmetrically placed along the wall across from the island is a 36-inch Spark Modern gas fireplace – absolutely perfect on those Artic-cold winter nights. There’s also a niche above the fireplace to hold a mirror, art décor or a wall-mounted television.

The master suites in these two homes are large and inviting. The bedrooms are spacious enough to fit a king-size bed with all the pre-requisite furniture. There’s also extra space for a sitting area along with two large closets.

A window sits on either side of the glass door opening to a private terrace for additional moments of interlude.

The en suite bathrooms are also large, luxurious and light-filled. Honed statuary marble tile in a trio of sizes adorn the floors (with radiant heat), shower walls and tub surrounds. Each room features an alcove soaking tub and a frameless glass shower, entertaining a triplet of shower heads.

The double vanities are custom built, each with a lovely quartz countertop. The two mirrored-medicine cabinets sit over the twin sinks, edged by three pretty sconces.

The toilet is a wall-mounted Duravit Starck 3 with a soft close seat. The fixtures are by Grohe. A spacious walk-in closet sits across the hall in these private suites.

The second bedrooms are also sizable and contain a large closet. This space can be used as a guest room, office or hobby spot. The well-appointed neighboring bathrooms feature exquisite Asher Gray Mosaic floor tile by Ann Sacks, custom vanities with Carrara marble counters and oversized showers.

Other perks include a generous allowance and selection of special features to be installed by the seller: choice of a dining room chandelier; $2,000 for a mantle/hearth for the 36-inch gas fireplaces and $2,500 for custom shelving in the master walk-in closet.

A laundry closet contains a stackable Maytag washer and dryer. Parking in the rear of the building is also available.

These magnificent homes are ideal for empty nesters or working couples, those who are rightsizing (also called “downsizing”) away from the big suburban homes, those who want to avoid the long and tedious commute to work and for those who have a deep desire to enjoy all that this great city has to offer.

Residents who live on Saint Botolph Street can enjoy the outdoor beauty and tranquility along with fun and exercise at the nearby expansive Southwest Corridor and Follen Garden, the Harcourt/West Canton Garden, Braddock Park Garden, Carleton Street Playground and Carleton Square Dog Park.

Saint Botolph Street is part of a historic residential district, nestled in the picture-perfect Back Bay bordered by the culturally diverse South End. Prominent architectural 19th century landmarks, such as The Old South Church, Trinity Church and the Boston Public Library, can be found in Copley Square. Originally known as Art Square until 1883 due to its many remarkable educational and cultural institutions, some of which remain today, the name was later changed in honor of John Singleton Copley, “the greatest and most influential painter in colonial America, depicting contemporary history,” according to art Historian Paul Staiti (Wikipedia).

Old warehouses have been transformed into the galleries, studios and home-décor shops collectively known as the SoWa Art & Design District in the South End.

The area is loaded with a variety of eating establishments and stores to meet every type of palate imaginable. Many restaurants and shops can be found at the Prudential Center and Copley Place as well as on Boylston and Newbury streets, all just a short walk from home. The South End is noted for its popular family-friendly bistros and trendy eateries.

67 Saint Botolph St. has convenient access to public transportation as well as major highways such as Storrow Drive and Route 93.

In a future issue, we will take you on a tour of Unit 1 and the Penthouse. Unit 1 is a grand duplex boasting 2,330 square feet with three bedrooms, two bathrooms and a private patio, listed for $2,999,000.

The deluxe penthouse, listed for $2,250,000, contains 1,675 square feet of living space, accessed by an exclusive elevator. This residence has two bedrooms, two bathrooms as well as a large private roof deck outfitted with a refrigerator, wet bar and head house.

Saint B, as it is known to the locals, is Boston’s best kept residential secret. It’s a special hidden gem offering a spectacular location and comfortable lifestyle for the most discerning homeowner.

These four scrumptious homes are listed with Joe Baglio and Aris Snyder of Back Bay Residential.
