Live in luxury on the water at Battery Wharf
On Boston’s Waterfront, many homes boast a view of the water, but there’s a condo on the market now that actually “sits on top of the water.” That’s according to Elaine Dolley of Douglas Elliman Real Estate. She is listing #3305 on the third floor of a mid-rise at 3 Battery Wharf for $3,390,000. That price includes a 50-linear-foot boat slip that the residence overlooks.
In addition to its proximity to the water, the unit gets morning sunlight and western sunsets so it is filled with natural light. Spacious with high-end finishes, glossy floors of Santos mahogany, a pair of oversized bedroom suites and an additional bedroom (great to use as an office or den), this unit is move-in ready and ideal for someone looking for a place that looks brand new.
Whether the next buyer is an empty-nester, an individual seeking a pied-à-terre or such as a former owner - a professional athlete looking for a home near the TD Garden, this unit is sure to delight.
A home chef will have fun cooking meals in the gourmet kitchen. The cabinets are custom and the uppers are enhanced with frosted glass panels. A large walk-in pantry offers ample storage space for non-perishables. The countertops are blue Cats Eye granite and the tile backsplash that complements them is dark and shiny.
Stainless steel appliances are all by Thermador, including a tall side-by-side refrigerator, a five-burner gas cooktop and double ovens.
The breakfast bar is the place to seat four people for a quick breakfast or a relaxed lunch. In nice weather, the owner can enjoy the home’s direct access to a long terrace and serve casual meals amidst the sea breezes.
The formal dining area is adjacent to the kitchen, dressed up by the graceful brass chandelier that indicates the best spot to place the table. Light splashes in through a couple of four-pane windows.
The living room has enough space for a few pieces of substantial, comfortable furniture if that’s what the new owner desires.
This home has two bedroom suites located on either side of the living space - very private and suitable for a family member or for visitors who stay for weeks or months at a time.
The double doors that open into the primary suite add a touch of formality. The bedroom has floor-to-ceiling glass and a walkout to the terrace – the better to admire the vessel down on the boat slip. A custom walk-in closet allows for excellent clothing care and organization.
The full en suite bathroom is large and spa-like. Calacatta Gold marble is everywhere and it looks exquisite, especially in the way its gold and gray veining accents the medium-toned wood cabinetry. Double sinks allow two people to get ready at the same time.
The soaking tub invites relaxation and the roomy shower features a rain head and body spray. Medicine cabinets by Robern sport beveled glass.
On the other side of the residence is another suite with a bright, oversized bedroom that looks out on the water. The large walk-in closet can store plenty of clothes.
An en suite bath is similar to the one in the main suite with marble finishes. Although it has a single sink, this bathroom has a spa shower with room for a bench, a whirlpool soaking tub and a separate water closet for the toilet.
The third bedroom is smaller, so the next owner might emulate the current resident and use the space as an office or den. With two custom-built closets, it offers plenty of storage.
Across the hall, another beautiful bathroom serves this room’s occupant as well as visitors to the home. With more Calacatta Gold marble, a large shower and a sauna, this bath will get a lot of use.
Finally, a Bosch washer and dryer reside in the home’s laundry closet for the owner’s convenience.
There are 104 residences at Battery Wharf spread out among several buildings, creating a boutique feel. It’s on the Waterfront and there’s a sense of exclusivity as well as fabulous views. Little white sailboats bob across the water. A water taxi is available here and the concierge can call to take residents to Logan Airport, Rowes Wharf, the Seaport or drop them off for dinner at the Reelhouse, a popular restaurant on the East Boston waterfront. Owners can even request to have their guests picked up at the airport and the concierge will greet them at the water taxi.
The hotel features an Exhale Spa that Battery Wharf residents can enjoy, taking classes in yoga, Core Fusion and Pilates. Food and wine can be delivered to the homes. All these luxuries await the buyer.
Living on Boston’s Waterfront is very convenient. At the end of the drive is the North End with its gourmet restaurants and cozy cafes. The Financial District is a short walk away. And valet parking for two cars in the garage is included with the property.
