A true waterfront home with what could be the best backyard in the city - surrounded by the Fort Port Channel and the Rose Kennedy Greenway - is available at the Residences at InterContinental, 500 Atlantic Ave. in the exciting Waterfront District.

The 1,550-square-foot open concept design in Unit 16L has been perfected for both formal entertaining and intimate gatherings. High ceilings and beautiful hardwood floors anchor the seamless contemporary motif that delivers comfort, elegance and style.

Oversized windows offer sweeping views of the ever-changing city skyline in the living area, and a beautiful chandelier adorns the dining site.

The adjacent U-shaped gourmet kitchen exudes a clean, crisp feeling. The granite tile counters and backsplash complement the dark wood cabinetry featuring soft close drawers. The stainless steel appliances that include the Wolf stove, Sub-Zero refrigerator and Asko dishwasher sparkle and shine.

The hallway leading to the home’s two bedrooms holds a laundry closet with a new, full size Asko washer and dryer, a powder room with a pedestal sink, and a coat closet.

The master suite is large and luxurious. With plenty of space to spread out in the carpeted bedroom, you can admire the exquisite harbor views day or night through the floor-to-ceiling windows. With the press of a button, electric blackout shades quietly close off the outside world, creating a personal oasis.

Multiple storage options include an over-sized custom walk-in closet complete with shelves, hanging spaces and drawers as well as two other good sized closets.

The en suite bathroom showcases a large and luxurious soaking tub and a marble and glass shower. The double vanity has plenty of room for two. The contemporary finishes and lighting add to the spa-like feel.

The second spacious bedroom also has an elegant en suite bathroom. This accommodating space can be used as a den, office or craft room. A futon or pullout couch can be added for those occasions when overnight guests visit.

This deluxe unit is one of 130 attractive abodes situated between the 14th-21st floors in one of the most spectacular full-service glass tower hotels in the city. While the residents enjoy a private, well-appointed lobby that was refurbished two years ago and 24/7 concierge/doorman/valet services, pets are welcomed and cared for, as well. Treats are kept behind the concierge counter, and an on-site dog walker is available for hire.

There is separate elevator access to the underground parking garage; a large service elevator is available for furniture movers and cleaning people. Trash and recycling spaces are available on each floor.

Residents are welcome to enjoy all the amenities that the hotel offers, including fine cuisine and refreshing drinks at the adjoining restaurants, 24-hour room service and housekeeping assistance plus a 2,500-square-foot indoor fitness center, an indoor heated lap pool, a hot tub and a steam room. The full-service spa offers a variety of treatments and services, and the locker rooms are well appointed. There is even a book club on site.

Behind this very well kept, professionally managed building is an outside oasis. A grassy area offers play space for children and pets; a walking path along the waterfront tenders fresh air and beautiful scenery for all to explore; a furnished patio provides an inspiring spot for family and friends to enjoy an evening of entertainment from Memorial Day through Labor Day.

Ideally situated as the centerpiece between the flourishing Midtown/Financial districts and the ever-expanding Seaport, embraced by the Rose Kennedy Greenway and the Boston Harborwalk, bursting with historic landmarks, fascinating attractions and ethnic cuisine, a broad range of people from young professionals and families to empty nesters, are drawn to the Residences at InterContinental.

“It’s a real community here,” Reifer said. “It’s like suburbia in the city.”

This spectacular unit, listed at $1,995,000, is only available for private showings by contacting Stacey Reifer of Robert Paul Properties at 617-504-8983 or sreifer@robertpaul.com.
