Living “large” and beautifully is a way of life at the Ritz-Carlton Residences, situated in Midtown between Tremont and Washington streets, neighboring the Boston Common and Downtown.

Unit 18F is a “corner” 1,087-square-foot, one-bedroom unit with two full bathrooms cited on the 18th floor of a trendy high-rise tower. This luxurious home is listed by Pamela Cushing and Haley Cutter of Douglas Elliman Real Estate for $1,275,000.

An abundance of amenities are included, too. Room service, 24-hour doorman/concierge and a one-year membership at Equinox Health Club are all part of the deal. In addition to one valet garage space, this home has 60 hours of free guest parking each month – quite the perk in downtown Boston.

Views inside and out that vie for top billing in this residence begin at the front door. An attractive architectural feature on its own – the incredible tray ceiling in the entryway draws attention upwards to almost 10-feet high. Richly paneled doors that are approximately nine-feet high emphasize the size of this deluxe space.

An adjacent double closet, which is handy for clothes and/or storage, falls into the practical category and is easy to overlook because of what is underfoot: Brazilian cherry flooring. Installed in a herringbone pattern throughout most of the home, this beautiful feature is a strong, cohesive element that creates visual interest as well.

The long hallway to the main living area can offer visual pleasures, too. More than a passageway, this seemingly pedestrian space (no pun intended) is an instant art gallery waiting to happen. Blank walls are ready for artwork of all genres.

The fully open concept living area is highlighted by 12 floor-to-ceiling windows with breathtaking panoramic views of the Boston skyline that include the gold-domed State House and the lights and theaters on Washington Street. Beautiful in daylight and stunning at dusk, the scenic view is always mesmerizing and visible from every vantage point.

The glass walls also give the oversized space an infinity-like feeling that is calm and serene. On a practical note, arranging furniture is easy to do and easy to change.

Tucked in the corner between two full walls of full-glass pane windows, delineated by discretely placed ceiling soffits, is the dining room. This eat-in spot always has “views” on the menu. It seats six-plus people as is, but expands or contracts as needed.

Poggenpohl maple cabinetry complements the overall serene and sophisticated ambiance of this home. Integrated panels on the Sub-Zero refrigerator and Miele dishwasher add to the flowing lines in the wide galley kitchen with tumble tile flooring. The stainless-steel five-burner gas Viking range and sink are subtle touches of glitz in this functional space.

Five or more can be seated comfortably at the step-down granite-topped counter that is adjacent to the dining area. The counter also works as a server during formal and informal events or cocktail parties.

Elegant details such as the honed marble banjo-shaped countertop, marble floor tile and base boards in the full guest bathroom make this an inviting loo. The step-in shower with a frameless glass door and marble tile surround is a handy convenience, especially when company spends the night.

The master suite, however, is a chic retreat. In the oversized sleeping chamber where a California king-size bed, seating, a chest, etc. are easily accommodated, a massive wall of windows guarantees a memorable way to begin or end the day: the sight of iconic Boston scenes bathed in sunlight or outlined in twinkling lights - natural and manmade.

Two oversized double closets are additional highlights. Featuring interior lights, these huge storage spaces have identical custom inserts that include four drawers, open shelving and specialized hanging spaces.

Honed marble finishes grace the en suite bathroom with a tub/shower ensemble and Kohler fixtures. Matching marble tile is everywhere - from the threshold and flooring surrounded by marble bump boards to the banjo-shaped countertop over the vanity. An almost floor-to-ceiling medicine cabinet with nine adjustable shelves and mirrored door holds an enormous amount of items.

In-unit laundry facilities are an added convenience. Currently this home has an all-in-one stackable unit, but installing full-size stackable machines are very doable in the allotted space.
