Fabulous corner unit at the W Boston Residences sold
High up on the 16th floor in a shimmering tower of glass is a luxurious residence that underscores spectacular open concept living with top of the line finishes and phenomenal views.
Collin Sullivan of William Raveis originally listed this beauty with two-plus bedrooms and two-and-a-half bathrooms, located in the revered W Boston Residences at 110 Stuart St. in the Back Bay-Midtown area. Unit 16G sold through Myrna Rothman of Douglas Elliman Real Estate on July 22 for $1,995,000.
The unique front-to-back design and walls of floor-to-ceiling windows emphasize the sophistication, style and splendor of this extraordinary 1,872 square-foot favored corner unit. The contoured ceilings that delineate the open spaces add architectural charm while the lighting over the dining space makes a fashion statement.
An almost seamless wall of floor-to-ceiling glass starts in the kitchen, wraps around the corner of the dining-living room and extends into the bedrooms, bathing the home in an abundance of natural light and revealing an unforgettable panorama of the city skyline plus the Boston Harbor and the Islands.
The L-shaped foyer is large and welcoming and features a double-door closet. On one side of this corridor are a powder room and an alcove with two doors – one to a laundry closet that holds a full-size stackable washer and dryer, the other to the master suite.
On the opposite side is a long, blank wall waiting to be adorned with photographs, pictures and other forms of artistic expression. The end of the foyer opens to an expansive kitchen-dining-living room.
The custom chef’s kitchen is well-equipped with a Sub-Zero paneled refrigerator, beverage bar, four burner gas cooktop and Wolf stainless steel oven with convection and dehydrating options. Multiple cabinets are graced with sparkling granite countertops and glass subway tile backsplash. An expansive center entertainment island with a sink and disposal has seating for three.
The sprawling dining-living room can accommodate a large dining table for formal gatherings while a cozy arrangement of seating areas welcome lively conversations or restful interludes.
At the far side of the living room is an alcove that leads to the guest suite. Parallel to the expansive windows is a long line of built-in cabinets. One space has a drop-down door that opens to a beverage bar; an upper compartment maintains the glassware. The second space accommodates a work station with room for a computer and keyboard.
A door opens to the boudoir and bathroom with a marble vanity and combination tub-shower.
On the opposite side of the home is the spacious master suite accessible via the foyer. The suite opens to a hall with a custom walk-in wardrobe adjacent to the double wide closet.
A spacious spa-like bathroom is wrapped in small mosaic glass tiles. Oversized subway tiles envelope the long soaking tub and walk-in shower with glass doors. A vanity has two sinks and a wall rack holds heated towels.
The spacious master bedroom boasts a wall of built-in drawers flanked by two tailored closets that render bureaus optional.
The attention to detail appreciated throughout the home is also mirrored in the built-ins.
The furniture quality finishes include dovetail joints and solid wood drawers with easy glide features. The handles on the closets complement the wood on the drawer fronts. Floating nightstands give the room a sleek, uncluttered look.
Smart Home technology provides comfort, security, energy efficiency and convenience. Pre-set programs control the heating, air conditioning and lighting preferences. With a push of a button you can enjoy your favorite music with surround sound speakers throughout the home and control the automatic solar shades for light or privacy, as desired. You can also monitor your home via an elaborate camera system.
A house phone connects you to a caring staff comprised of a 24-hour concierge and doorman, room service until 2 a.m. plus cleaning and valet services.
While the home is a quiet oasis above the bustling city below, pure pleasurable living continues with more than 12,000 square feet of retail and restaurant space at the lobby level. People can start off their mornings with a complementary cup of hot coffee or a refreshing glass of flavored water. Relax or socialize, play retro board or online games, or sip mixed libations in the trendy lounge. Enjoy gourmet decadence in the hip restaurant/art gallery. Stretch and strengthen at the fully-equipped fitness center (membership included). Rejuvenate and revitalize at the Bliss Spa where wellness is well done.
The W’s motto is “Whatever/Whenever,” helping to make your dreams come true, whether at home or abroad. The concierge can get tickets to the theater, movies, comedy shows, concerts and museums and make reservations at world class restaurants and hotels. Other preferential concierge services include package deliveries, dry cleaning and car services.
There is an eclectic mix of people ranging in age and varying interests who live at W Boston Residences – including internationals, suburbanite transplants, families, professionals and retired people – many who are drawn because of the full service lifestyle that’s in a great spot.
The building is fabulously located in the midst of everything Boston. Enjoy cuisine at award-winning restaurants, shop till you drop in designer boutiques, dance the night away at trendy clubs and laugh till you cry at the comedy shows. Sail away on the Charles River, enjoy a concert on the Esplanade and take a Swan Boat ride at the Public Garden. Savor the amazing architecture in the Boston Public Library and pick up some products at the European-style farmers’ market in Copley Square. Meet the artists in their SoWa South End studios and have fun at the Chinatown festivals. Play bocce and ping-pong on Lawn on D in Seaport. Watch the sun rising over the Boston Harbor and the majestic array of colors splashed across the glass towers as the sun sinks below the horizon.
Getting around Boston and beyond is easy. In addition to walking, you can catch the MBTA buses, trains and commuter rail. All major highways are nearby as well.
