Sparkling new South Boston condos ready for you
Choices. Choices. Choices. That’s what comes with these brand-new condominiums – as in just finished in January by Cedarwood Development – in South Boston. What’s even better is that whatever you choose is great.
Size and prices for the units at 580 East Broadway are among the many options available. The amount of living space ranges from 853 to 1,228 square feet. Prices start at $799,000 and go to $999,000.
All these homes are listed by The Caseys (Casey Cochran and Casey Shaughnessy) of Coldwell Banker Realty.
Which living space you prefer is where the fun starts. There are three options, all with two bedrooms and two full bathrooms, although one home has an extra half bathroom.
All units feature open concept living, but the layouts vary. Of the floor-throughs, a.k.a., single-level living, two have identical floor plans with open living-dining areas that accommodate six or more people comfortably and U-shaped kitchens; one has a galley kitchen.
Privacy is also integrated into these well-designed homes as the bedrooms are far away from the public living spaces down corridors, several of which are lined with shadowbox paneling.
The classic elegant effect blends seamlessly with the overall contemporary aesthetic.
While the triplex, which is the largest of the homes, spreads out over three levels, its layout incorporates the same considerations for privacy and a thoroughly modern lifestyle. The distinctive floor plan includes two bedrooms (one is the primary suite) and a full guest bathroom – all on the second floor.
The staircase to this level is tucked away in the back of the unit to ensure full separation from the main level.
Downstairs is spacious and fully finished with a family room/guest room/office/gym.
While the differences are intriguing, it’s the shared features, finishes (as in fine) and details that make these homes outstanding.
Three-inch-wide white oak flooring with a white wash finish installed throughout each home including the common area, which is accented with a striking hexagon-shaped white tile design, is a cohesive element suitable for various décors. Extra-wide concave, double crown molding and clean finished, deep bump boards reflect a modern vibe.
Each unit has a sleek chic kitchen with an abundance of white Shaker-style cabinetry completed by a stainless steel sink and Bosch Pro appliances (including a five-burner gas range) plus Michelangelo white veined quartz countertops with waterfall effects on peninsulas that also seat three or four people. Gold/brass fixtures (cabinet handles and faucets) sparkle whether under mount lighting is on or off.
Backsplashes, however, are unique to each home. One floor-through unit, for example, has a slab-like beauty that matches the quartz countertops. Extra-long glass subway tile is used in one unit and the triplex has a decorative geometric pattern.
On a practical note, all these homes have full-size stackable Whirlpool washer and dryers.
Although each unit has roomy lighted closets with custom inserts, those in the primary bedrooms are especially noteworthy. These walk-in gems with specialized hanging space and open shelving are very impressive.
So are the primary en suite bathrooms. Large format tile installed floor-to-ceiling on every wall is one highlight in these luxurious loos. Walk-in showers within frameless glass enclosures feature nickel-framed product niches, center mounted rain shower heads and hand-held wands. Smart mirrors (complete with backlighting) are over the quartz-topped vanities.
Every guest bathroom has a tub/shower ensemble with a tile surround and tile flooring. The bonus is that these washrooms are generously sized with ample elbow room.
Not to worry, the bedrooms are very spacious and very bright with at least two sets of one-over-one windows with contemporary-styled casings.
King-size beds fit easily in the primary bedrooms while the guest rooms are more than large enough for queen-size beds. The second bedrooms could, of course, do double duty as offices/dens by installing a Murphy bed or sofa bed.
Private outdoor space also ranks high on the perk list. Each home has full glass pane sliders to a covered deck (at least one) with a modern tweak: metal railings with interior finishes and see-through panels that allow for unobstructed views.
In addition to the deck off the primary bedroom, Unit 2 has an extra Juliet balcony accessible via full glass pane sliders.
Along with extra basement storage, garage parking options are available. And, because this is New England where inclement weather happens, the garage has inside access.
That the South Boston location is great is a given as American Provisions, The Broadway, The Paramount and Stop & Shop are barely minutes away. Castle Island is practically in your backyard and the choices for bus lines are many and varied.
