John Neale and Brad Sprogis of Sprogis & Neale Real Estate are marketing this five-bed, three-and-a-half bath home for $6,250,000. It boasts grand outdoor spaces and two covered and heated parking spots.

When the owners bought their townhouse at 152 West Newton St. in the South End seven years ago, they decided to live in the home for a year to figure out just how they wanted to use the 4,016 square feet of living space before undertaking any renovations. The result is a spectacular showpiece.

John Neale and Brad Sprogis of Sprogis & Neale Real Estate are marketing this five-bed, three-and-a-half bath home for $6,250,000. It boasts grand outdoor spaces and two covered and heated parking spots.

It’s very special, like a suburban home, and very ergonomic, said one of the owners, who hosted a recent tour with Neale. With her culinary training and fondness for cooking, she designed a stunning gourmet kitchen that suits her to a T.

A five-burner Thermador cooktop and stainless steel oven beneath a sculptural zinc hood are set against one wall with a backsplash of textured miniature Carrara marble tiles. A zinc-topped island with breakfast bar seating is opposite the principal cooking area. Built in are a deep sink, a stainless steel European speed oven/microwave and a Miele dishwasher. Close by is a stainless steel Sub-Zero refrigerator, which faces a window. Zinc also tops the counters.

Before you reach the kitchen, however, you must move through the double parlor that has been beautifully transformed to a gracious open space. Dividing walls were removed, expanding the main living area and making the elegant staircase an architectural statement.

Two original Carrara marble fireplaces are reminders of the home’s mid-19th century origins that include a bowfront and a rear three-window bay and soaring ceilings accented with deep crown molding.

Two Art Deco chandeliers are suspended from elaborate ceiling medallions above the polished ebony hickory flooring, and the walls have picture moldings.

In the dining area, flanking the fireplace, are floor-to-ceiling custom cabinets with top corners that replicate the center carving of the fireplace surround.

Two family bedrooms plus a nursery/small bedroom are on the floor above, as is a fully tiled bath with a deep soaking tub and a single vanity.

Within the bathroom is a laundry closet with a stacked Bosch washer/dryer. Ceiling height on this level is nearly 9½ feet, trimmed with crown molding. The wide pine floorboards are painted black, a nice contrast to the two decorative Carrara marble bedroom fireplaces.

The staircase ascends to the master bedroom suite that also has been expanded with the removal of a separating wall. The walk-in closet is deceptively large; it has two separate doors.

The master bath is luxurious and features two pedestal sinks set beneath a long shelf and against a half wall of miniature textured Carrara marble tiles. In front of the window is a deep tub with claw feet, and opposite it is a glass-enclosed shower, tiled with Carrara marble. The heated floor is marble, too.

Also on this level is another bedroom with a three-window dormer; it presently is used as a home office. It has a wall of built-in shelving and a good-sized closet.

From the hallway are more stairs to a phenomenal deck of ipe - an exotic, durable hardwood. In addition to the panoramic views of the city, the deck, measuring 19-by-19 feet, includes room for outdoor furniture and a large dining table, plus a hot tub. The flower boxes edging the deck have castors, and a drip irrigation system keeps them healthy. In one corner is a small flowering tree.

More living space is on the lower levels and out of doors. The street level is easily accessed through an entryway beneath the high stoop that has enlarged storage space for bicycles or scooters.

Inside is a guest suite with an en suite bath that has a second door into the hallway. The bedroom has two bow windows and a decorative Carrara marble fireplace. A single pedestal sink and a glass-enclosed shower are in the bath.

Beyond the stairs on this level is a spacious library with abundant shelves and cabinets, some with glass fronts, that occupy two sides of the room. The inner sanctum has a climate-controlled 1,200-bottle wine cellar.

At the back of this room, mostly lined with glass, is a delightful balcony overlooking the garden and the yard.

The garden level is extraordinary and certainly is designed for casual family living and entertaining. One wall has wide oak planks that echo the custom-designed one-piece dining table upstairs. Mounted on it is a small and effective gas fireplace.

Adjacent is another wall that holds a huge television. (It is excluded from the sale.) Built-in seating hugs this large corner.

Floor-to-ceiling glass doors fold out to a heated patio, set up for al fresco dining. A built-in gas grill is next to the patio, and a stone wall that frames the area is filled with plantings. Steps lead up to a garden area with sectional seating, more plantings, including hydrangeas and ivy, and a stone wall with greenery. Beyond the fencing with a gate are two covered and heated parking spaces. Motion detectors add security.

But that’s not all. Just inside the entertainment room is a beautiful wet bar with abundant cabinets, an icemaker and chiller and a dishwasher. Like those in the kitchen, the bar is topped with zinc.

Next to it are a powder room and a small closet. At the far end of the room, near the stairs, is a home gym with a mirrored wall plus access to two storage areas. A double-door closet is at the foot of the stairs. It seems that every imaginable convenience has been anticipated and furnished to create this amazing home.

“It’s cohesive, and each room has its own character,” said the owner.

The black and white and silver palette throughout the home with pops of color simply adds to its serene living space in an urban environment.
