Jeffrey Goldman of Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage is offering Unit 506 for $2,149,000. He believes that this home is very well priced. A similar unit one floor higher recently sold for $2.6 million.
On a spring-like afternoon, the unit’s sunny living and dining area pulls you in through the home’s columned foyer. You can’t help being drawn toward the water.
“It’s on the south side, so you get the full view and sunlight all day,” Goldman says.
The warm light is perfectly beautiful and it gleams on the pale maple hardwood floors. The large windows are framed with custom moldings, so they almost look like artwork. And when you look out to the left, there’s nothing to stop the view of water. Smaller side windows admit additional light and allow you to peer out onto the home’s private balconies.
There’s plenty of room for all your furniture in this open living area. Suspended over the dining area, there’s a crystal chandelier.
Spacious built-ins define the media wall, surrounding a Sony flat-screen TV and a Sonos sound bar. The current owners have outfitted the living space with a leather sofa, a pair of comfortable chairs, a large coffee table and a spinet piano.
It’s easy to imagine cooking tasty meals in the home’s cherry and granite kitchen that was completely renovated in 2011. The backsplash is tumbled marble, which complements the room’s warm color palette. A built-in wine rack allows the cook to choose a favorite bottle to complement dinner.
Appliances here are high-end: A tall Sub-Zero refrigerator is hidden behind paneling and it tops two pull-out freezer drawers. The Wolf induction cooktop would delight any home chef and a top-of-the-line Miele dishwasher helps with post-prandial cleanup. There’s a lovely island/breakfast bar in the middle of the kitchen for casual meals, but in nice weather, you’ll want to take your coffee out onto the private balcony to enjoy the vistas and sea breezes.
Located behind the kitchen through a French door, the master suite is secluded from the rest of the home. There’s room for your entire wardrobe in three double closets in the long, mirrored dressing area and additional closet space in the master bedroom.
The bedroom is lovely with gleaming hardwood floors, decoratively painted walls that resemble Venetian plaster, and best of all, oversized windows that let its inhabitants enjoy every sunrise.
The marble master bathroom is the place to relax, whether you prefer to step into the jetted tub to soak your cares away or prefer to hop into the glassed-in shower for a refreshing cleanse. A cherry vanity provides room to store all your bathroom luxuries.
On the opposite side of the unit, across from the living area through another French door, you’ll find the home’s guest suite. Surrounded by custom built-ins, the guest bedroom is currently a bright den and home office - although if you needed another bedroom instead, there’s enough room here for a queen-sized bed.
The built-ins can be removed if you would appreciate additional space. This room has its own private balcony - a space to take a refreshing break while enjoying water views.
A full marble bath with a tub/shower combination takes care of guests, and steps away, a full-sized LG washer and dryer pair is stacked in the utility room. You can store a few more things there, perhaps seasonal items. And there’s additional storage in the basement.
There are some fabulous amenities available to homeowners at Rowes Wharf. The five-star Boston Harbor hotel is next door and the hotel services are like an extension of your home. Those include room service (there are three restaurants in the hotel), maid service, an amazing swimming pool, a fitness center and a recently remodeled full-service spa.
The location can’t be beat, whether you’re up for a stroll on the Boston Harborwalk, dinner in the Seaport or a walk to work in the Financial District.
And one of the best reasons to move to Rowes Wharf is the way the staff takes care of the people who reside there. As Goldman says, “I’ve never met an unhappy resident at Rowes Wharf. They bend over backwards to accommodate you here.”
