Millennium Tower continues to provide the best of everything anyone could look for in an exceptional home – prime location, sumptuous amenities and an enriching lifestyle.

This shimmering glass sculpture reaching for the sky at 1 Franklin St., located in the humming heart of Midtown/Downtown, is an ultimate sanctuary - a dramatic environment of casual luxury, brimming with beauty and exceptional five-star services.

A terrific Grand Residence treasure on the 53rd floor - Unit 5305 - is listed by Jeffrey Goldman of Coldwell Banker for $4,295,000.

This contemporary condominium encompasses 2,196 square feet of luxurious living, showcasing a generous floor plan accented with wide-plank ivory oak hardwood floors and tall floor-to-ceiling windows, ultra-luxe finishes plus upscale appliances. This chic and charming home also comes with two on-site parking spaces with valet services.

24-hour concierge and security, as well as a host of life-style amenities, are other elements that make living here so attractive.

As with all the luxury condos in Millennium Tower, there are windows galore – all the better to savor the magnificent views that you will be able to enjoy from three directions – north, east and south. According to Goldman, the 53rd floor offers a treat the lower floors don’t have – views of the Charles River and Boston Harbor on the horizon.

This sea of windows adds to the delight both day and night. You’ll experience exquisite sunrises floating over Boston Harbor and riveting sunsets splashing across the Charles River. On a clear day, you can even get a glimpse of the White Mountains in New Hampshire, and at night you’ll marvel at the twinkling city lights. Adding to the joy, the massive floor-to-ceiling windows in the living room and the primary bedroom are angled outward, expanding the viewing vantage.

The kitchen-dining-living room is open, light and large. The designer kitchen will bring colossal delight to any and all chefs as they prepare scrumptious meals. Top-end stainless integrated appliances, including a deluxe Sub-Zero side-by-side refrigerator/freezer, a Sub-Zero wine cooler, a Wolf double oven and a Wolf five-burner gas cook top are set into a wall of Calacatta marble and counters with matching backsplashes, surrounded by plenty of sleek Poggenpohl push-latch cabinetry.

A corresponding Calacatta marble waterfall island counter/bar with a stainless-steel sink and dishwasher unifies the configuration.

A dining area parallels the island and the windows face east for an extra helping of sunny-side up breakfasts.

Opposite the kitchen/dining area is a spacious living room adorned with plenty of built-ins for media, books and personal décor and, of course, those ever-changing outdoor scenes.

The large principal bedroom suite has a custom-fitted walk-in closet. The sumptuous en suite bath comes with marble floors and a twin-sink marble vanity, a glass-enclosed marble-benched shower with rain and hand-held showerheads, and a separate soaking tub perched in front of a wall of windows.

The two other bedrooms have plenty of size as well and come with full en suite baths.

This home is also complemented by guest powder room and a separate laundry room

Another of the alluring aspects of life at Millennium is the long list of on-site contemporary lifestyle amenities that residents enjoy.

As its silvery soar on the skyline suggests, the Millennium Tower has stretched itself beyond spurring the renewal of the old Filene’s department store building as a bustling retail center, injecting new life into Downtown Crossing. Built in 2013-2016 by Anthony Pangaro of Millennium Partners in a pleated reflective-glass skyscraper design by Gary Handel and Blake Middleton of Handel Architects, the 60-story, 685-foot condominium-restaurant-retail complex has become a city in itself.

That means the sagacious buyer of Unit 5305 not only enjoys vast city vistas, infinite sky views, breathtaking Boston Harbor sunrises and stunning Charles River sunsets, but is also spared the hassle of driving long distances to swim, work out, get a haircut, shoot pool, lounge, bar-crawl, shop, dine and even go to movies. This, and more, is all included – just an elevator ride down with an 80-strong, concierge-doorman-chef-bartender-personal trainer-staff ready to lend a hand in whatever you endeavor.

The largest residential-only fitness facility in Boston, the FLX Fitness Area has personal trainers, spin classes, cardiovascular and weight equipment and a Pilates studio. There’s a 75-foot Olympian lap pool, a steam room for after-swim relaxation and socialization, and a whirlpool for simmering down stressors. You can also relax and indulge in the latest treatments for hair, nails and body delivered by expert stylists, aestheticians and masseuses at the full-service spa and salon.

The private dining room can be reserved for special events with food/drink service from the tower’s PABU Japanese restaurant, founded by James Beard Award-winning celebrity chef Michael Mina.

The Club’s bar serves exotic cocktails, scallops coated in chorizo sausages and other delectable treats.

The Owners’ Lounge boasts luxurious seating amid book-matched marble walls, a Zebrano stone two-way fireplace and a kitchen serving PABU delicacies from power-greens salads to lobster pot pies. The Lounge also hosts concerts, fireside chats with local celebs and other fun events in the Millennium Tower’s La Vie social calendar. The screening room with 15 plush leather seats and cup-holders shows monthly movies as part of La Vie.

The parlor offers poker, billiards, darts and TV sports-watching. The children’s playroom has an arts-and-crafts table and fun, colorful toys to play with and climb on. In warmer months, the Terrace offers residents communal dining and a firepit.

The club concierge reserves private events, personal trainings and spa services for residents.

And look what’s next door to Daniel Burham’s historic 1912 Filene’s building – cafes, food markets, clothing stores, restaurants – in short, the whole gamut of downtown shopping, dining and kaffeeklatsching right on your block.

And its central location puts the best of Boston within walking distance by all compass points: southwest to the Theatre District, southeast to the Financial District, northeast to the Waterfront, north to the North End, northwest to hospitals and TD Garden, west to the Boston Common and much more.
