Enjoy breathtaking harbor views in this Pier 4 Seaport gem
Anthony’s Pier 4 was one of Boston’s iconic restaurants where local couples and families enjoyed celebratory seafood dinners. Movie stars and politicians would often be seen frequenting the place. In the summer of 2013, after 50 years in business, the eatery closed its doors in Boston for the last time.
In recent years, the Seaport District has taken off as one of Boston’s most desirable neighborhoods, endlessly booming with upscale hotels and luxury condominiums, novel shops and exciting restaurants framing the South Boston waterfront.
The Residences at Pier 4, constructed on the site of the former restaurant, is a striking development with breathtaking harbor views on three sides and a verdant one-acre park, as well. This luxury boutique building, completed in 2019, was formed in a shape reminiscent of a ship. It features 106 units and offers a suite of amazing amenities and services.
As Neda Vander Stoep of Coldwell Banker Realty says, “The developer did an excellent job with the building and differentiating it from the other Seaport buildings.” It has a very urban feeling in a coastal environment and “there have been few resales since the building was completed.”
Vander Stoep is listing Unit 6H, a superb two-bedroom, two-and-one-half-bath residence with rousing water vistas, for $3,450,000.
The home’s 1,504-square-foot layout is ideal. A bright, nicely-sized living and dining area has warm walnut flooring. An accommodating arrangement of furniture will provide a great place for entertaining and relaxing.
A glass door from the living room leads out to the unit’s private balcony. Make sure to bring comfortable outdoor seating – you’ll be spending a lot of time out there, hanging out with friends and family or enjoying stretches of solitude. The sunsets are glorious and the fresh air is sensational. Since the balcony faces the ICA, it’s a prime space to enjoy their live outdoor summer concerts.
The home’s kitchen is wide open, absolutely beautiful and has everything you could want. Walnut upper cabinets contrast well with white lower cabinets accented with a backsplash of shining white subway tiles.
High-end appliances by Gaggenau offer German engineering. The tall refrigerator is concealed behind paneling for a seamless look. The Bosch vent fan is as sleek as a sculpture. A pot filler installed above the gas cooktop makes short work of adding water to a pasta pot or tea kettle.
The marble island, the centerpiece of the kitchen, has a waterfall edge for a contemporary look and there’s room to pull up a couple of counter stools to enjoy breakfast or conversations around afternoon tea.
An open shelf with lighting is the perfect place to display your crystal glasses and a beverage refrigerator holds your wine collection at the perfect temperature – convenient for when you’re serving the evening’s guests their favorite pour.
The smartly placed half bath is fresh and white with a rectangular vanity that has two deep storage drawers and a deep sink embellished with gooseneck hardware.
When it’s time for bed, you will slip off to the home’s primary bedroom. It’s an appealing room with a contoured ceiling and a big window that reveals compelling views. Any kind of décor will work nicely in this room and a king-size bed would be welcome. A large walk-in closet ensures plenty of space for your clothes with an additional closet built out for shoes.
The en suite bathroom is immaculate and elevated, such as one you would expect to find in a luxury hotel. It’s a wonderful spot to relax while cleansing.
The spacious shower draws you in with crisp tile work, a rain showerhead and a hand-held spray. Its frameless glass door visually expands the size of the large bathroom.
The gray vanity provides double sinks and a marble counter. Four generous storage drawers offer space for bathroom necessities.
For privacy, the second bedroom is located on the opposite side of the unit, also off the living area. The floor-to-ceiling window ensures that natural light will splash in, giving the room an airy feel. This room could also be used as an office, den, hobby or media room.
A full en suite bath is equipped with a tub/shower combination. The vanity has one sink and a couple of drawers for storing towels and accoutrements for a customized bathing experience.
The pleasure of living at the Residences at Pier 4 is prolonged with the building’s sundry amenities. The second floor encompasses the club level conveniences. A cozy resident’s lounge features a gas fireplace. A caterer’s kitchen is available for parties. The fitness center is well equipped with room for your personal trainer. An athletic simulator allows you to work on your golf game all year long.
The outdoor space on the terrace is stunning with multiple seating, an oversized grill and a firepit.
When you crave a bite to eat but don’t feel like cooking, there are two restaurants in the building: You might know the Nautilus, featuring global, seafood-centric cuisine from its original location on Nantucket. Woods Hill, with its original location in Concord, focuses on sustainable farm-to-table fare.
The staff of this building is fantastic with a 24-hour concierge and offers both valet and self-parking options.
The price of Unit 6H includes a storage locker and two tandem garage parking spaces located on the upper level of the basement. Being able to choose self or valet parking is a unique option in the Seaport and one that many residents appreciate.
With easy access to the Harborwalk, the nearby water taxis at Seaport Hotel/World Trade Center, the MBTA’s Red Line and commuter rail at South Station and its convenient proximity to the attractions in Seaport, Financial District, downtown Boston and Beacon Hill, the Residences at Pier 4 is a trendy treasure for living, entertaining and everything you need.
