Heading a long list is the fact that while Unit A at 245 West Canton St. is a deeded condominium, it lives like a single-family home – complete with a stunning street-side private entrance and garden space.

The location of this magnificent townhouse – right on the corner of West Canton Street and the Southwest Corridor Park – is fantastic. But that’s only one of many unique aspects of this urban gem in the South End.

Heading a long list is the fact that while Unit A at 245 West Canton St. is a deeded condominium, it lives like a single-family home – complete with a stunning street-side private entrance and garden space.

Lush landscaping (including colorful plantings – perennials and annuals) highlights the wide brick archway that leads to the front door with custom leaded and stained-glass sidelights.

That’s only the beginning – literally – of the story about this four-level home with four bedrooms, four full bathrooms, one half bathroom and 2,142 square feet of living space. It is listed by Michael O’Hagan of Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage - South End – for $2,500,000.

In addition to the exceptional front door windows, this home has more than 30 windows that provide park views – i.e., the Southwest Corridor that also has a dog park and playground – from nearly every corner. These beautiful windows, be they one-over-one or two-over-two, have Hunter Douglas blinds or plantation shutters.

Up-close-and-personal views of the Back Bay and South End are always available from the spacious and private roof deck. The bonus is the full staircase from the top floor to this outdoor oasis.

In this meticulously-maintained home, the interior is filled with thoughtful features, such as step lighting in the stairwell, central air conditioning and heat/AC zones for every level. The basement and kitchen are in one zone.

Beauty is another fundamental. Regardless of decor, light-stained oak flooring throughout the house (with the exception of the bedrooms) is a gorgeous backdrop as well as a cohesive element. Custom tile work in the kitchen backsplash and in the bathrooms is another captivating and colorful feature.

In the galley kitchen, for example, iridescent mini-green tile and green granite countertops are sparkling contrasts to maple cabinetry with closed and textured glass fronts and under-mount lighting.

Stainless steel appliances that include a Bosch four-burner gas stove, dishwasher and Jenn-Air refrigerator, oven and microwave oven add extra glitz.

The large island with a stainless-steel sink provides additional prep space and has storage on both sides. More storage is available in the pantry tucked behind a “secret” panel. The bonus is that the kitchen is open to a sizable dining area.

Custom tiling is also on display in the half bathroom on this level. Here, one-inch square iridescent tile wainscoting (even the bullnose trim sparkles) complements the glass vessel sink atop a custom cabinet.

A flexible floor plan is another highlight. The living room, which shares the main level with the kitchen, is on the other side of the spacious foyer, allowing traffic to flow easily, almost seamlessly, between the two rooms. An elegant space with triple-crown molding and a three-window alcove flanked by floor-to-ceiling bookcases, this also works as a formal dining room or family room.

Furthermore, the second-floor layout includes the current family room. A massive space that is easily repurposed, this has another alcove and a second exposure with four windows. Directly opposite is an extra wide gas fireplace with a marble surround and dentil trim on the mantel.

The adjacent built-in cabinet that goes to the ceiling has open shelving and closed cupboard space. Double crown molding is a classy finishing touch.

A wide, deep bay with three windows is an immediate attention-grabber in the office with a built-in desk and a cedar closet. With an en suite bathroom, using this as a bedroom, too (for guests or family) is another option.

The private bathroom with a fully-tiled step-in shower showcases more custom tile work. A glass wall-mounted integrated sink is another eye-catcher.

The king size bed sleeping chamber in the master suite on the upper-most floor is the full width of the residence, but it’s the extra-wide three-window alcove that ups the charm factor. A second exposure and a huge walk-in, lighted closet with open shelving and custom hanging spaces are more pluses.

Still, the en suite bathroom is a showstopper. Ocean blue iridescent mini-tiles are used in the surround for the jetted tub/shower ensemble, as accents in the wainscoting and on the floor. The overall effect is invitingly serene.

A second bedroom suite on this level has a wall of closets, but another wide three-window alcove tends to garner the most attention. The en suite bathroom is equally appealing with a fully-tiled step-in shower and an extra linen/medicine closet.

The fully-finished lower level is as good looking as it is versatile. Built-in cabinetry with open shelving and closed cupboards on one wall of a very large room can be used for books or art displays in addition to providing ample storage.

This room also has a regulation double closet. With above-ground windows on two walls, this room is bright enough to be an au pair suite, guest space, a teen/college student domain, an office or even a gym.

An adjacent full bathroom with a fully-tiled step-in shower, plus laundry facilities in the spacious utility room (complete with a window), are added conveniences.

So is access to the street and to the deeded parking spot behind the building. The long “common" hallway, which is the only shared space in the building, is a hidden indoor route (and one that is protected from the elements) to the great outdoors.

There will be an open house from 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. on Sunday, Oct. 6.
