There’s ample room for a king size bed in the primary bedroom and its walk-in closet is nicely built out. You can enjoy the view from the terrace, which is accessed through the tall glass doors.

One great benefit of living at The Residences at Battery Wharf is its amazing location, perched along the picturesque Boston Harbor in the vibrant Waterfront, next to the historic North End.

And you can find out for yourself, because Unit 2408 at 2 Battery Wharf is ready for a new owner.

In addition to all those proximity perks, the home has a beautifully designed, gut-renovated interior with floor-to-ceiling glass doors opening out to a private terrace that lets you enjoy the harbor and sea breezes.

Elaine Dolley of Douglas Elliman Real Estate has the listing on the home and she’s offering it for $2,790,000.

“It’s drop dead gorgeous,” she says.

The formal foyer is a wonderful introduction to the rest of the home. The custom built-ins are ideal for displaying art objects and books and the glowing hardwood floors continue throughout the unit.

When you walk into this gem, you’re greeted by a formal foyer enhanced with built-in cabinetry and wall-sized art. A large coat closet takes care of guests and a half-bath is a few steps away. Hardwood floors glow warmly, extending throughout the home.

The highlight of the home’s fresh open kitchen is the oversized waterfall island with a place for seating and plenty of storage on the other side. Lacquered white cabinetry and designer appliances enhance the beauty and functionality of the space.

To the left is the open gourmet kitchen. It’s a stunner, featuring a marble waterfall island that provides seating and storage space. There’s room for everything you need here in the custom white lacquer cabinets and two pantries. Marble subway tile, stacked in a contemporary arrangement, adds additional beauty on the backsplash.

It’s tempting to dream about the meals you could prepare on the five-burner gas cooktop and in the wall ovens with the help of a tall stainless steel French door refrigerator that can hold loads of cuisines. An under-counter beverage fridge keeps bottles at the perfect temperature.

The ceilings of the living and dining areas provide architectural interest. Light enters through the floor-to-ceiling glass doors, which lead to the home’s private terrace.

The airy, open living and dining area has tray ceilings adding architectural interest and definition. A crystal chandelier establishes a great spot for a dining table to enjoy indoor dining.

The living room couch works especially well facing the floor-to-ceiling glass doors leading out to the residence’s delightful private terrace.

Open a pair of sliding doors into an adjacent interior den featuring a wall of custom built-in cabinetry. Use this space as a TV room or home office and if you need a third bedroom from time-to-time, consider placing a pull-out couch in the room to make it even more functional.

This long private terrace is a delightful place to enjoy the harbor and sea breezes.

This home has a pair of bedroom suites on opposite ends of the unit, enhancing privacy. The larger of the suites is the primary, adjoining the living room. There’s lots of room for a king size bed, a couple of nightstands and a dresser if you desire one. You might not need one, though, because the sizeable walk-in closet is nicely built out. From this boudoir, you can view the water from the terrace, which is accessed through the tall glass doors.

With beautiful custom tile work, the primary bathroom exudes spa-like luxury. There’s a free-standing soaking tub, a shower with a body spray and handheld shower and a vanity with dual sinks. Plenty of well thought out customized storage has room for towels and other bathroom must-haves.

Situated on the opposite end of the home, the second suite has a water view through the bedroom window. A custom walk-in closet delivers space for a wardrobe or two.

This full bathroom here is very fancy with two sinks, a soaking tub and a spa shower.

When it’s laundry time, a washer and dryer are stacked in a laundry closet which is lined with shelving. That’s another one of the many advantages of living here.

The home comes with one garage parking space and rental parking is also available. Bicycles storage is available in the garage. Residents can enjoy the amenities at the Battery Wharf Hotel, including concierge, Exhale fitness center and spa, in-unit/on-site dining, among others.

This unit is pristine, completely move-in ready and ideal for suburban empty nesters wanting to downsize into an effortless home, individuals seeking the perfect pied-à-terre or somebody looking for a place in an unbeatable Waterfront location with an easy connection to the North End neighborhood at the end of the building’s private driveway.

Residents can enjoy the amenities at the Battery Wharf Hotel, including concierge service, the Exhale fitness center and spa, in-unit/on-site dining, among others. This outdoor spot is a great place to dine on a nice summer day.
