As you enter Residence 8F, it's obvious that a great deal of care went into the design. The unit's entry foyer is wide and welcoming with dark-stained hardwood and a generously-sized coat closet. There is plenty of room for a comfortable bench or a console table. Adding a framed mirror or a couple of pieces from an art collection is also a welcoming touch.

Longtime Boston residents may remember the Seaport District as an open expanse of parking lots; however, a lot has changed over the past decade. In its current configuration, the Seaport is one of the fastest-growing parts of the city, hosting stylish high-end retail shops and some of the most elegant restaurants in town.

Seaport is also home to a few condos with fabulous light and amazing Fan Pier views. One of the most spectacular new luxury dwellings is Residence 8F – a 1,546 square foot, two-bedroom, two-and-a-half bath end unit at 50 Liberty Drive. This home sold on March 11 for $2,900,000.

David Green of Douglas Elliman Real Estate originally listed the home, which was bought through The Sarkis Team, also of Douglas Elliman.

The building’s lobby is simply stunning, showcasing sparkling stone floors and modern light fixtures made of shining metal and glass. The marble concierge desk is staffed 24 hours. The elegance of the space conveys a strong hint that what awaits you in the residence is even grander.

An open concept style floor plan incorporates a 23-foot, sun-drenched kitchen-living-dining room. The dark hardwood floors ground the space and contrast nicely with the white walls. Three walls of floor-to-ceiling windows offer breathtaking views of the harbor.

“You could stare out at that view all day long,” Green said.

There’s plenty of room to arrange furniture for formal and informal entertaining.

A glass door opens to the unit’s private balcony – a perfect place to watch the sunrise, watercraft sailing across the harbor and the twinkling nightlights.

At the other end of this open area is the gourmet kitchen where the cook can also enjoy the views and take part in the conversations going on in the living area. The galley kitchen is well-equipped with high-end appliances that include a cast iron continuous grate gas Wolf cooktop, two Wolf wall ovens, a tall Sub-Zero refrigerator, an under-counter wine chiller and a Miele dishwasher that opens automatically when you tap on the door.

The backsplash tile is textured with a mirrored finish to reflect the light. The white quartz countertops integrate seamlessly while the white lacquered cabinets conceal ample storage space for food and cookware. An extra-long peninsula holds the deep stainless sink and has room for five guests to enjoy drinks or casual meals.

At either end of the living area are the two bedroom suites.

The striking master bedroom can easily accommodate a king-size bed. The large walk-in closet is built out with organizers to make wardrobe storage easy. The floor-to-ceiling window looks out onto the harbor. The window treatment operates by remote control, making it easy to open the shade to reveal the morning light. The room has its own thermostat, conveniently placed to adjust the room’s comfort level.

The en-suite bathroom has dual sinks and a wide counter trims the shining white vanity. Its spacious shower is irresistible with marble tiles and two showerheads: an overhead mount and a hand-held body spray.

The second private suite is, in every way fabulous, suffused with natural light during the day and accented with the twinkling lights of the city at night. Another remotely-operated window shade darkens the room for sleep. The bedroom has two closets – one a deep walk-in.

The en-suite bathroom features gorgeous shining marble tile and glossy cabinetry. The bathtub/shower combination is ideal for the person who appreciates a long soak with a quick rinse-off.

Newly constructed in 2018, 50 Liberty is a full service building directly on the water, comprised of 120 uber-luxury condominiums spread out over 14 floors. There are a variety of sizes and floor plans, ranging from studios to 3+ bedroom Penthouses.

There are also fun spaces within the building for residents to enjoy. An expansive and immaculate state-of-the art fitness center, outfitted with a variety of workout machines, is located on the second floor.

There’s also a private waterfront lounge with a mesmerizing view of sailboats bobbing on the harbor. Several conversation areas, two TVs, an espresso machine and copies of the different publications are available for added pleasure.

Other amenities include in-unit laundry and underground heated parking.

The building, which sits near a grassy knoll, is surrounded by the Harborwalk. The Institute of Contemporary Art – which hosts a variety of year-round programs and events – is nearby. Lawn on D hosts concerts, lawn games and other summer fun. The Seaport Hotel and World Trade Center is also in the neighborhood. Although most errands can be done by walking, blue-bikes and public transportation are also nearby.

Whether you’re relaxing inside your luxurious home, enjoying the prime building amenities or experiencing life in the neighborhood, the mushrooming Seaport is an outstanding place to live.

“It’s become like a city within the city,” Green said. “It’s the new Newbury Street with all the shopping and restaurants.”
