Residence 1004 is a recently spruced up, sparkling and spacious home comprised of a delightful open living area plus three bedrooms and two full bath rooms.

“Strada” means “street” in Italian and The Strada at 234 Causeway St. is a hip high-rise nestled between the North End and West End neighborhoods, enveloped by historic sights and plenty of shops and restaurants.

Once the site of the old Stop & Shop bakery built in 1899, this Waterfront dwelling was transformed in 2003 into six floors of commercial space and six floors of residential units, prompting The Strada to become a very desirable place to live.

Residence 1004 at The Strada sold on June 5 for $1,125,000. Originally listed with the Live in Luxury Team at Douglas Elliman Real Estate, this home was purchased with Elizabeth Crampton of Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage.

Residence 1004 is a recently spruced up, sparkling and spacious home comprised of a delightful open living area plus three bedrooms and two full bath rooms.

Streaming sunlight spills through the wall of windows in the light and airy living area dancing on the beautiful hardwoods maple floors that spread throughout this 1,351 square foot home.

There’s plenty of room in this space to add furniture, media equipment and accessories to accommodate living and entertaining essentials. While the five pains of glass (which open for fresh air) have elegant yet practical Hunter Douglas shades, a track of lighting provides extra ambiance.

At the far corner is a chic kitchen adorned with custom dark-stained cabinetry that contrasts with the light hardwood flooring. Black granite U-shaped countertops extend to the peninsula breakfast bar that is wrapped in textured metal, complementing the stainless-steel appliances. Glass subway tiles form a reflective backsplash on the wall behind the deep sink. To the right sits a shiny Electrolux French door refrigerator.

The Dacor range has an induction cooktop that chefs enjoy using. Not only does the cooktop heat only the pan for safety, its elements are exceedingly adjustable in temperature and cooks the food quicker than electric or gas burners. The range hood vents to the main duct that expels to the outside.

The KitchenAid dishwasher has a knurled handle that matches the texture of the sink’s faucet. A Viking trash compactor makes refuse convenient to the trash and recycling room on the same floor as this unit.

The custom pantry is built out nicely with shelves that provide room to store small appliances and non-perishables while easily accessible pots and pans hang from a rack recessed into the ceiling.

The unit’s bright primary bedroom uses subtle hues and texture to make a beautiful statement as the Phillip Jeffries grass cloth on the walls are color-matched to the window frames. This elongated room has space for a California King bed and two nightstands. The main closet is built-out to help keep the wardrobe organized, making bureau drawers optional. Additional storage space above the closet provides room to store rarely-used items.

The renewed primary bathroom is enhanced with contemporary tile in earthy shades. The extra-large shower has frameless glass doors, a rain showerhead and handheld body spray for relaxation. The textured floor tiles feel comfortably cool underfoot and the white vessel sink on the dark vanity adds style. Wallcovering coordinates with the wall treatment in the primary bedroom.

The other two boudoirs feature Murphy beds. The back bedroom has plenty of space for a home office, if desired. There is plenty of comfort when the Murphy bed is pulled down and when the Murphy bed is closed, its dark wood veneer is gorgeous.

The front bedroom has a Murphy bed with light-colored built-in shelving and a pleasing view of the Zakim Bridge. The light maple hardwood flooring adds a great design touch.

The welcoming entry way has a double coat closet conveniently placed for residents and their guests and an adjacent laundry closet where a stacked full-size Bosch washer and dryer reside. Straight across is a contemporary full bathroom which features attractive tile work and a round vessel sink that sits on the vanity. The shower has a hand-held body spray in addition to an overhead spray.

The new residents can easily feel spoiled by the services the Strada offers, including a 24/7 exclusive resident concierge, on-site management and an assigned deeded space with valet parking in the underground garage. The Strata maintains a private fitness room, has bicycle storage and offers family-friendly activities. The building is pet-friendly (dogs must be under 50 pounds), too.

The new residents can also enjoy all the activity on and around this vibrant street. The Hub on Causeway is a block and a half away and includes an enormous Star Market, a 15-screen ArcLite Cinema, the Big Night Live concert venue, plus plenty of restaurants.

Also close by are the beautiful Waterfront havens such as Christopher Columbus Park, the Rose Kennedy Greenway and Cobb’s Hill, along with the Harborwalk, offering seasonal activities, events and strolls. With just a short saunter to Love Joy Wharf, residents can hop on a traffic-free water shuttle to the Seaport. They can also meander over the bridge to historic Charlestown.

The Strata – it’s a unique building; it’s got history; it’s got character – and the multitude of area amenities – are just a few of the reasons for the new residents to embrace life in this vibrant neighborhood.
