Sail into this gorgeous two-bedroom Pier 4 condo

The living and dining area is filled with light and access to the unit's private deck. If you enjoy entertaining, you can host some great dinner parties here.

As the Seaport District continues to progress, some of the most interesting structures in Boston have been erected there. One striking condo development tucked down on the end of Pier 4 Boulevard was fittingly built to resemble a ship.

300 Pier 4 Blvd. is not just interesting to look at, it offers everything a luxury buyer could want.

“There are very few buildings here where you can get the full service and be directly on the water,” says Stephen Connolly of The Sarkis Group at Douglas Elliman Real Estate.

The views are refreshing and the staff is superlative. For example, the concierge will deliver the groceries you ordered directly to your door.

Unit 5R is on the market now, listed at $3,299,000. It’s a nicely laid out home with a pleasing sense of space and great harbor views from every room. This home with 1,276 square feet of living space has two bedrooms – both with full en suite bathrooms.

When you come inside the residence, you immediately notice that the fine Italian walnut flooring creates a warm counterpoint to the white walls. The home is a showplace for art and these spacious walls are the perfect backdrop to showcase a collection of large, colorful paintings.

The dwelling’s open floor plan works well for entertaining. The living area is delinated by a delicate chandelier in a naturalistic style that resembles a branching plant. There’s space for a nicely-sized sectional and a chair or two.

There is plenty of room in this dining area to fit a table for eight people.

Adjacent to this space is the perfect place for the dining area. An orb of textured mesh lighting hangs above the dining table placed so that guests can enjoy a view of boats in the harbor as well as the Institute of Contemporary Art. Don’t hesitate to bring in a table for eight people because there’s enough room for it here.

Unit 5R has a private deck overlooking the water. It’s a sweet spot to sip morning coffee or evening cocktails.

Open the doors to the home’s private deck to let in a sea breeze. After the party, take the opportunity to sit outside and sip a nightcap or a cup of coffee.

You can cook some fabulous meals in the separate yet open kitchen. All the appliances were made by Gaggenau, which is Bosch’s highest-end brand. A tall French door refrigerator is concealed behind paneling for a seamless look. The range hood over the gas cooktop resembles a piece of modern sculpture. A beverage refrigerator under the counter keeps the owner’s wine collection at the most desirable temperature.

Sleek and outfitted with high-end Gaggenau appliances, the kitchen will delight the home chef. The marble island is the focal point of the space.

The two-toned cabinets are stylish – the lower ones are walnut and the uppers are white – edged  by subway tiled marble backsplash.

The centerpiece of the kitchen is a marble waterfall island that holds the sink. Pull up a couple of bar stools for a quick breakfast or lunch. All the marble is in pristine condition. The present homeowners have had it maintained regularly.

The primary bedroom has room for a king size bed. The custom walk-in closet will take good care of your clothes.

Located in its own “wing” of the unit, the primary suite is sunny and fresh with a window looking out on the harbor. The bedroom is rectangular in shape – a unique feature not typically found in other units in the building. This boudoir has ample room for a king size bed. A walk-in closet takes care of the homeowner’s clothing.

Hexagon tiles highlight the oversized shower in the primary en suite bathroom. The double vanity lets two people get ready at once.

The en suite primary bathroom is luxurious, featuring an oversized hexagon-tiled shower with glass doors. A rain shower head makes every bathing experience a pleasure. The double vanity is dark gray with a mitered quartz countertop and large drawers for storage.

On the other side of the residence, the secondary bright bedroom offers a water view. Its full bathroom sports a tub/shower combination and a white single vanity with a quartz counter. This bathroom serves guests as well since it’s accessible from the main living space.

Rounding out the unit is a laundry closet off the home’s entryway outfitted with a Miele washer and dryer.

One of the many amenities for residents of the building is a golf simulator so you can work on your swing all year.

The building is loaded with amenities. The second floor is the club level. The resident’s lounge is a comfortable place to sit, warmed by a gas fireplace. A caterer’s kitchen is available for parties. The gym is well equipped and a golf simulator allows you to work on your swing. The outdoor space on the common deck offers seating, an oversized grill, and a firepit.

The staff of the building includes a 24-hour concierge and an on-site handyman. Unit 5R comes with a valet parking space.

For a few additional niceties, the Freedom Boat Club is nearby with rentals, lessons and more. And when you’re hungry, two fine restaurants, Nautilus (with a location on Nantucket) and Woods Hill (an organic eatery with a branch in Concord) are right in the building.

The exterior of the building is reminiscent of a ship, which is entirely appropriate to its location on the harbor.
