A sunny, spacious and spectacular gem in Seaport

The primary bedroom is its own oasis with ample space for a king-size bed, dresser/bureau and end tables. Some comfy seating is also doable so you can enjoy views from any vantage point.

Be it a pied-à-terre for weekend escapes to the city, a weekday domain for those juggling hybrid work schedules or a jewel-box residence for empty nesters, this eighth-floor unit at the Echelon at 133 Seaport Blvd. in the Seaport is delightful.

Unit 812 has direct Boston Harbor views. You see it the instant the front door opens and from every main room. Unforgettable custom features are hallmarks of this one-bedroom, one full bathroom home with 691 square feet of living space, listed by Candice Klapman of Douglas Elliman Real Estate for $1,160,000.

Technology is an integral aspect of the exquisite design aesthetic. This “very” Smart home, for example, has electric blinds on every window and Alexa at the ready to handle all manner of conveniences. LED lighting and hard-wired surround sound are more techie pluses.

A canvas of wide plank ivory oak flooring throughout the entire condo that fits any decor glistens in floods of natural light from floor-to-ceiling windows in each well-proportioned space. High ceilings add presence.

Yet carefully selected and curated finishes are what gives this gem its calming ambiance.

High ceilings add presence.

On a more prosaic note, every closet has custom inserts to maximize storage capabilities and the open concept floor plan demonstrates how to use space to its best advantage. The living-dining room, for example, easily accommodates various furniture configurations, allowing for the ultimate flexibility on a daily basis or on special occasions.

Glamour, however, was not overlooked.

Sleek, sophisticated and stunning only begin to describe the exceptionally functional galley kitchen that is completely open to the rest of the living area.

The white lacquer finish on chic Italian cabinetry (of which there is a substantial amount) that continues on the integrated panels for the suite of Thermador appliances such as the refrigerator, dishwasher, oven and microwave oven is complemented by white quartz marble countertops - also imported from Italy. The result is a gorgeous chef’s domain with a seamless look.

Because practicality also matters, seating for four people is easy at the peninsula that also has a stainless steel sink. Grohe fixtures throughout (including the bathroom) add sparkle. That this cookery also has such a great harbor view is a bonus.

Big, deep and fully outfitted with custom inserts, the walk-in closet would be the number one talking point for the sleeping chamber were it not for the en suite bathroom.

The spacious spa-like bathroom is an elegant retreat with an oversized step-in shower with a frameless glass door with a fully tiled marble surround.

The spacious spa-like washroom is an elegant retreat with an oversized step-in shower with a frameless glass door with a fully tiled marble surround. The floating vanity, and, yes, this is the same Italian cabinetry installed in the kitchen, reflects the overall modern vibe.

Full size stackable laundry machines (a Bosch washer and dryer) are tucked into their own space just outside the primary bedroom. Like the rest of the storage spaces, this, too is quite spacious and, in addition to handling necessary laundry supplies, is large enough to store luggage.

The Echelon has a state-of-the-art fitness facility with an indoor basketball court, sports simulator and yoga studio.

Life at the Echelon comes with more than a personal residence. The hotel-like building has one indoor and two outdoor pools as well as state-of-the-art fitness facilities with an indoor basketball court, sports simulator and yoga studio.

The Club Level features a lounge - complete with a fireplace, private dining room and outdoor terraces with grill stations and fire pits designed to be an extension of your home. And let’s not forget 24/7 concierge service and an on site door-person.

Did I mention that a one-car parking space (valet service, of course) is also part of the package?

Just entering through the front door tells people that The Echelon is a very special haven of luxury.
