New owner for spectacular East Boston condo
Living in a chic contemporary condominium, featuring a pleasing sun-drenched open floor plan teeming with top-of-the-line finishes, inserted into a premier luxury building filled with signature lifestyle amenities and surrounded by acres of waterfront playground just got a little easier for a new homeowner.
Unit 412 at Slip65 (65 Lewis St.) at the new Clippership Wharf complex on the East Boston waterfront was recently sold for $920,000 – a spectacular value given how beautiful this home is and all the great amenities that go along with it. This gem showcases a chic 1,066-square-foot condominium with two bedrooms and two bathrooms.
The home was originally listed by Jennifer Schneider of Century 21 Elite Realty and bought with O'Connor & Highland of Keller Williams Realty Boston-Metro | Back Bay.
There is plenty for the new resident to love in this home, including lustrously engineered hardwood floors that introduce the open kitchen-dining-living room while large windows provide sensational water views from every room.
The stylish U-shaped kitchen highlights elite energy-efficient stainless steel Bosch appliances, including a side-by-side refrigerator, a five-burner gas range, an over-the-range microwave and a dishwasher, embraced by sleek white lacquered cabinetry and sparkling quartz countertops with integrated backsplashes. Two pretty pendants hang above the peninsula with seating for three people.
On the opposite side of this peninsula is a lovely space for leisurely living or lively entertaining. A sliding glass door in this comfortable space opens to a private balcony that provides a respite to enjoy the ever-changing panoramic views of Boston Harbor and city skyline. It’s a perfect place to while away the hours, watching the sun rise, the boats sail and the twinkling lights dancing in the distance.
Designed with privacy in mind, the two bedrooms are located on either side of the living area. Each nicely-sized wool carpeted-bedroom has a generous-sized walk-in custom closet and large windows to bring the beauty of the outside in.
The primary bathroom has a quartz-topped double vanity and a large frameless glass-door shower while the guest bathroom has a single quartz-topped vanity and a tub/shower combination. Each bathroom features a porcelain-tiled floor and walls.
The primary suite has an additional large closet. The guest suite shares a full-sized, front-loading, stacked washer and dryer in the closet off the hallway. There is also a coat closet for additional storage, conveniently placed near the unit’s main entrance.
The list of on-site services at the Slip65 is comprehensive. The around-the-clock concierge services include an automated package kiosk as well as after-hours security. Zipcars and a Hubway station allow for alternate transportation options. For environmentalists, car-charging stations are available as well as on-site bike storage. This home also comes with a deeded garage parking space and there are several BlueBike stations around town.
Completed in 2019, the Clippership Wharf complex provides the best of indoor and outdoor living.
The seven-acre site contains three multi-use buildings with residences, restaurants and retail offering an array of common area amenities. For indoor gatherings with family and friends, residents can enjoy the waterfront lounges with full service catering kitchens; challenge each other to a game of billiards and shuffleboard, watch shows on the big screen televisions, appreciate the rotating exhibits at the new ClipArt Gallery. After an invigorating workout at the spacious state-of-the art fitness center outfitted with multiple cardio equipment and free-weights, residents can refresh and replenish at the fitness breakfast bar.
Fun and varied activities are just as plentiful on the outside as well. Residents can enjoy a picnic lunch on the outdoor terrace - equipped with grills; take an afternoon stroll along the beautifully landscaped courtyards, lawns and butterfly garden; and gather around the fire pits at night relaxed by the mesmerizing flames.
Residents can rent kayaks at the Clippership Kayak Center and launch the watercrafts into the marina with ease at the boat dock for an invigorating glide around the harbor while enjoying 360 degrees of memorable delights and take in live performances at the private amphitheater overlooking the waterfront.
For the four-legged residents, there is an onsite doggy park for puppy play and a pet wash station for extra pampering.
Off-site activities and attractions are seemingly endless in the vibrant, eclectic and dynamic community of East Boston.
You can walk along the 43-mile scenic Harborwalk (catch the link at Pier 65) that connects some of the East Boston waterfront wharfs, piers and parks, including the newly created crown jewel of the neighborhood – Piers Park and the Piers Park Sailing Center – with other Boston waterfront neighborhoods.
You can also enjoy a 2.5-mile walk, run or bike ride along the East Boston Greenway that stretches mostly inland, connecting several parks including the Bremen Street Park (featuring multiple playgrounds, a dog park, bocce courts, a community garden, the newly renovated library and the East Boston YMCA), Memorial Park (the sports stadium has soccer fields, tennis courts and a baseball diamond), Constitution Beach (one of Boston’s hidden waterfront gems) and Belle Isle and Wood Island Bay marshes (great areas for bird watching).
East Boston boasts the nationally-recognized youth music program, Zumix; the nationally acclaimed Veronica Robles’ Cultural Center; the seasonal ICA Watershed, showcasing large-scale art and family-friendly visual and performing arts programs; and the Lightship Nantucket, a National Historic Landmark.
East Boston is home to the nation’s first branch library and is legendary for its ethnic culinary delights.
This charming home is located in the Point Jeffries neighborhood of East Boston – where the Kennedy family took up residence years ago. It is just steps from Maverick Square – where the MBTA Blue Line and bus station is located. Residents can also take the water taxis and ferries across the harbor to other Boston neighborhood pleasures and of course, Logan Airport is close by for extended excursions.
This delightfully deluxe home is perfect for students, seniors and everyone else who enjoys the best of indoor and outdoor living.
