One of the most incredible features of this home is the amazing 1,200-square-foot private wrap-around landscaped terrace, accessible through the living room and family room.

For the tops in luxury living, nothing compares to the Ritz-Carlton Residences. Now available is a gorgeous two-story penthouse that stand out high above the rest – both literary and figuratively.

Penthouse 2B at 2 Avery St. in Midtown was recently gut renovated and the splendid results of this 4,300-square-foot beauty absolutely makes this one of the most comfortable, spacious and luxurious condos in the city.

Pamela Cushing and Haley Cutter of Live in Luxury Real Estate at Douglas Elliman have listed this sparkling duplex palace for $7,995,000.

One of the most incredible features of this home is the amazing 1,200-square-foot private wrap-around landscaped terrace, accessible through the living room and family room.

Adorned with colorful gardens and breathtaking views, there’s plenty of room for everything you need for entertaining family and many fortunate guests in extraordinary style and comfort on this massive outdoor oasis.

Rise early for the gorgeous sunrises over the Boston Harbor and return for the amazing sunsets over the Charles River. While away the hours watching the Swan Boats gliding on the lagoon at the Boston Public Garden, the sailboats soaring along the Charles River, and “Shakespeare” on the Boston Common. Imagine where the passengers are coming from and going to as the planes descend and ascend across the harbor at Logan Airport. Enjoy the action on the Boston Waterfront and at the Seaport District and absorb the beauty of the Harbor Islands. Savor the twinkling lights of the Boston skyline, Cambridge to the west and the Blue Hills to the south as day turns into night. (Of course, most, if not all, of these special moments can be enjoyed at the actual locations as well, should you want to leave this high and mighty haven.)

The inside of the home also has impressive panoramas. The wide and long foyer is graced with marble herringbone flooring while a gorgeous custom eight-inch wide plank American natural walnut hardwood flows throughout the rest of the home. Custom six-inch wood baseboards with three-and-half-inch casings and tray ceilings add depth and interest.

The large 40-by-18-foot living room, with windows on three sides, has custom built-in cabinetry and a natural wood burning fireplace with a Carrara marble surround trimmed with an embellished white wood frame/mantle.

There is plenty of natural light along with incredible views from the plethora of 14-foot double height windows, outfitted with motorized Hunter Douglas shades.

Soft overhead accent lighting, controlled by Lutron dimmer switches, adds to the ambiance.

Adjacent to the living room is an intimate space that can be used as a family room, office, bar or a fourth bedroom.

The open kitchen offers form, function and fun for any chef, especially when using top-of-the-line appliances that include an oversized 36-inch Wolf transitional induction cooktop with a pop-up light and vent, built-in wall ovens and a 36-inch stainless steel Sub-Zero refrigerator-freezer. Adding to the festivities are a 24-inch stainless steel door Sub-Zero under-counter beverage center and refrigerator drawers.

There are plenty of Bespoke Christopher Peacock quarter-sawn oak cabinets with custom chestnut finishes and countertops covered with Cambria quartz. To round out the experience is a large Newport kitchen island with a waterfall edge and seating for four people.

On the opposite side of the island is impressive contemporary lighting dangling over the sizeable dining area.

The second level offers a retreat from the common areas below.

The master suite is none other than large and loveable. The boudoir is spacious enough for a king-sized bed and sitting area and features oversized windows offering views of the harbor islands.

One of the “his-and-her” custom-built California-system walk-in closets has a washer and dryer and comes with additional benefits from the egress. Not only is this an easy exit from the top floor – but you can also roll out luggage on the way to business or vacation trips. And you can receive incoming deliveries, such as dry-cleaning, from the world-at-large through this closet area, even when you are not home.

The master bathroom is also filled with treats. The room is swathed in large white Calcutta classic marble wall tiles and McQueen laser jet mosaic flooring with thermostat-controlled radiant heat.

Wash away the day in the luxurious Jacuzzi soaking tub or step into the glass-wall shower and be invigorated with the water pulsating from the rainhead. There is also a hand-held shower wand, a seat and a product nook for added convenience.

A lighted wall mirror sits above the long Oakmore grey double peacock vanity topped with Cabria quartz, adding panache. A functional facet is the linen closet.

Two other bedrooms and marble bathrooms reside on this floor as well. One of the bathrooms highlights a hand-painted Christopher Peacock Refectory vanity with a Bianca goia polished Italian marble countertop along with a tub and shower. All three bathrooms include Kohler Artifacts brushed nickel fixtures.

The home comes with a Control 4 smart home system and two valet garage parking spaces.

People who call this iconic Boston treasure home share the same famed five-star service provided to hotel guests, including maid/room, doorman/concierge and garage/valet parking services. On-site maintenance is also available.

Residents can call from the comfort of their homes, and the concierge will arrange everything from making restaurant reservations around the city to handling travel arrangements around the world. Residents also receive discounted rooms at world-wide Ritz-Carlton hotels.

Other building amenities include direct elevator access to the 100,000-square-foot Equinox sports facility with complementary membership included for the first year. In addition to cardio and weights, the fitness center has specially-designed Mind Body Studios, a full-sized basketball court, four Squash courts, a 25-yard indoor swimming pool and a personal training program.

The state-of-the art spa offers rejuvenation after an intense workout or a long day. A collection of signature treatments focuses on relieving stress, renewing muscles, and overall relaxation.

It’s easy for Ritz-Carlton condo residents to explore the city, centrally located in the Midtown neighborhood across from the Boston Common, adjacent to the Financial District and the heart of Downtown close to the Waterfront activity.

Beacon Hill is dotted with meticulously maintained gardens and burning gas lights on brick sidewalks and is noted for its annual festivals. The Back Bay boasts a variety of unique shops and trendy restaurants and oft times a celebrity or two can be seen walking along the picture-perfect streets.

An array of performing arts venues, such as The Opera House (almost outside front door) and the Charles Playhouse as well as the Wang and Colonial theaters line the streets in the Theater District.

The recently rejuvenated South End is known for its artistic community, found in such places as the Boston Center for the Arts, where each year, Cyclorama holds the annual BCA Ball, among other events and programs.

For authentic Asian restaurants and bakeries, stop by Chinatown. They also host the popular August Moon Festival where you can eat sweet Moon Cakes, each containing a secret message.

To explore other places in Boston, the Chinatown, Downtown Crossing, Park Street and Boylston MBTA subway stations are easily accessible.
