Floor-to-ceiling walls of windows on both levels of Unit 7A (and sliders to the main level 400-plus-square-foot wraparound deck) create the feeling of living in a luxurious skybox where 180-plus-degree views of the city skyline and beyond are everyday thrills. Sunsets are especially spectacular.

Regardless of where you are in this one-of-a-kind penthouse at 88 Kingston St. in the heart Midtown, the world – OK, Boston – is at your feet. Literally.

Floor-to-ceiling walls of windows on both levels of Unit 7A (and sliders to the main level 400-plus-square-foot wraparound deck) create the feeling of living in a luxurious skybox where 180-plus-degree views of the city skyline and beyond are everyday thrills. Sunsets are especially spectacular.

Such a vista, however, is only one of many amenities found in this high-rise home at Lafayette Lofts, which features three bedrooms, two full bathrooms, a powder room and 1,858 square feet of living space. It is listed by Robb Cohen of Engel & Völkers Boston at $1,970,000.

That this contemporary residence is directly across from the elevator ratchets up the convenience factor, but that’s only a minor amenity in this home with soaring ceilings – at least 10-feet high throughout the unit – gorgeous oak floors and an open floor plan that allows for seamless living and entertaining. Admittedly, the view from those windows is what you notice immediately, even from the entry foyer, but each living area within the open concept has noteworthy features as well.

The expansive living room area, for example, with two window walls that meet to create a glass box effect is drama personified. Yet, a Heat & Glo gas fireplace within a three-sided glass enclosure and a built-in mini media area (with a floating two-drawer credenza) gives this space a cozy ambiance. Sliders in the west-facing wall in the living room (and in the kitchen) open to the deck that has a built-in irrigation system maintained by the condo association.

Incidentally, on the south-facing side of the deck, you can see all the way to the Blue Hills.

The kitchen is especially appealing on so many levels – no pun intended. A chef’s delight, this sophisticated cookery has a freestanding granite topped, step-down island that seats two plus a long swath of “working” granite countertops.

The backsplash of matching (in length) panels of stainless steel that are at least 24 inches high takes industrial chic to a new high. Sleek stainless-steel appliances that include a Sub-Zero refrigerator with freezer drawers, a Bosch dishwasher, a GE microwave, a Thermador four-burner gas cooktop, oven and hood complement the abundance of clean-lined European cabinetry. As the kitchen has a west-facing wall (with a magnificent view), time spent here is always pleasant.

Intimate repasts or elegant dinner parties – either one expands/contracts as needed or wanted –

with exterior views are always on the menu. On a practical note, a huge closet with nine-foot-high, frosted glass sliding doors runs along the east wall in the dining area. Custom California inserts transform this from an ordinary coat closet into a multi-purpose storage unit.

This level also has a half bathroom with a pedestal sink.

Perhaps one of the most extraordinary interior features is the staircase to the second level. Hardly standard, this custom cantilevered architectural beauty tucked next to huge windows seems to float within the open space. Stainless steel horizontal balustrades juxtaposed to the oak railing and stair treads are a very modern look.

The unusually large second floor landing is as outstanding as the primary living spaces.

Multi-glass pane French doors open to a sizable room with multiple uses ranging from guest space and/or office, den/study or even a third bedroom. Leave the doors open to enjoy the view through the two-story window. An elegant, Italian-made, floor-to-ceiling storage unit that runs along the back wall has sliding glass door panels by Longhi of Studio Verticale.

As the guest bedroom and the owner’s suite are at each end of the second floor – basically in their own wings, privacy is a given. Not to worry, so are views as each chamber has floor-to-ceiling windows.

The guest suite that is the width of the unit has two glass walls that face south and west and a deep California walk-in closet filled with built-ins.

The adjacent bathroom has Kohler fixtures that include a deep soaking tub/shower combination with a fully tiled surround – using contemporary large-scale tiles – and a rain showerhead. A clear glass panel enhances the airy ambiance established by the floating vanity.

The owner’s suite, which is at the opposite end of this floor, is a large, chic retreat. The king-bed size sleeping chamber has three single closets that all have custom California organizers. One has open shelving; another has cubbies and a third one has open cubbies plus drawers/wire baskets. The main closet that stretches across one wall has dedicated hanging spaces, open shelving and two five-drawer bureaus.

In the en suite bathroom, the fully tiled walk-in shower has frameless glass doors and a separate jetted tub. Large scale tiles used in both surrounds add a contemporary note in this look with a two-sink floating vanity.

Laundry facilities within the owner’s suite include a full-size, stackable GE washer and dryer.

Techie amenities are everywhere. For example, should you want to forgo that grand view to focus on all things inside, simply lower the automatic translucent blinds on every window with the Somfy remote control.

Two private deeded storage units, a Siedle video access system outside with a screen and buzzer in the unit, and convenient garage parking at reduced rates directly next to the building are proof that you can have it all.

The bonus is that the building is practically two blocks to everything regardless of direction. The Theater District, Chinatown, Downtown Crossing and the Financial District are around a corner or two. It’s a block and a half to South Station and just a tad further to the Orange, Red and Green MBTA lines.
