The Lydon at 401 Beacon St. sits on the site of a historically rich and culturally sophisticated legacy that began around 1867 and grew over the years with prominent proprietors and remarkable residents.

One more home in one of the hottest new Back Bay luxury buildings, located in one of the most beautifully iconic and revered sections of the Back Bay, has been sold. Unit 1B, originally listed with and purchased through Rene Rodriguez of Cabot & Company, closed on May 1 for $1,050,000.

The Lydon at 401 Beacon St. sits on the site of a historically rich and culturally sophisticated legacy that began around 1867 and grew over the years with prominent proprietors and remarkable residents.

After the masterful restoration was completed in 2018, The Lydon debuted, providing a new and exciting level of residential style and refinement that begins the moment you walk into this exclusive building from the picturesque charm of tree-lined Beacon Street.

All six of the luxury condominium homes – ranging from an expedient studio to a four-bedroom duplex – along with the well-appointed common areas have been designed to provide all the comforts of modern living while holding true to the historic context of the 1927 building and the neighborhood. It’s no wonder why The Lydon is the perfect place to call home.

Residence 1B is a delightful home with 878 square feet of pure high end living space with two bedrooms and one bathroom.

Conveniently located on the same floor as the lovely lobby, you can head right for your front door without waiting for an elevator or climbing a lot of stairs.

This residence, like all of The Lydon homes, is beautifully designed with a desirable open floor plan, custom crown molding, hardwood flooring and all the great features that are found in the larger units.

The corner living/dining room and kitchen have plenty of room to create space for relaxation, entertaining and dining – perfect for quality time with the family and friends. The three windows offer a stream of natural light and picturesque views.

The impressive kitchen includes many standout features, including solid wood cabinets with edge detailing and the Dolce Vita polished countertops. The appliances will also bring a big smile to the family chef. The large Miele induction cooktop includes a griddle and plays well with the Miele wall oven and microwave. The roomy Gaggenau refrigerator has auto-adjustable shelves, offering additional convenience. The bar, with seating for two or three people, has a sink for easy clean up.

Need some quiet space? No problem. On the other side of the kitchen is a peaceful room away from the more active common living space. With a jumbo walk-in closet, this can be used as a second bedroom or as a den-sitting room-study-hobby room.

When ready for a restful night of sleep, the master bedroom at the end of the long hallway is waiting to take you to dreamland. The bedroom has more than enough room – sufficient for a king-sized bed and prerequisite furniture. There’s also a large walk-in closet.

The sunny, spa-like bathroom features a relaxing soaking tub and a walk-in double-head shower with an Oasis shower glass panel. All the shower controls are programmable to get the water pressure and temperature just the way you want it. The counters and heated flooring are natural quartz composite. The vanity has a gorgeous walnut base finish.

A utility closet in the hallway holds a stackable washer and dryer.

Daily conveniences are attended to with ease at The Lydon, thanks to a full time concierge, doorman, direct elevator access and automatic valet parking.

One of the great new features at 401 Beacon St. is the totally automated parking garage under the building. Just drive in and a computer-coded system will lower your car, turn it around and park it. Then when you are ready to go back out into the world, your car will be raised and ready for you to drive away.

The new residents will also enjoy the convenience of being near all the fabulous designer boutiques, captivating galleries and tantalizing restaurants.

Appealing outdoor areas such as the Charles River Esplanade, Commonwealth Avenue Mall and the Public Garden are beautiful nearby oases offering rest and renewal as well as lively cultural and social events throughout the year. The stately 19th century brownstones and row houses are endorsed with significant cultural and educational institutions such as the Boston Public Library, Trinity Church and Copley Square.

The Back Bay is also conveniently located amidst the Fenway and Longwood neighborhoods –

lined with educational institutions, museums and galleries, Fenway Park and the medical arena –

as well as the Theatre District.
