End-unit Seaport home is absolutely spectacular
Longtime Boston residents may remember the Seaport District as an open expanse of parking lots, but a lot has changed over the past decade. In its current configuration, the Seaport is one of the fastest-growing parts of the city, hosting stylish high-end retail shops and some of the most elegant restaurants in town.
Seaport is also home to a few condos with fabulous light and amazing Fan Pier views. One of the most spectacular new luxury dwellings is Residence 8F - an end unit at 50 Liberty Drive.
David Green of Douglas Elliman Real Estate is marketing this two-bedroom, two-and-a-half bath property for $2.999 million.
“I love everything about 50 Liberty,” Green told a recent visitor. “The staff is amazing.”
The building’s lobby is stunning with sparkling stone floors, modern light fixtures made of shining metal and glass, and the marble concierge desk is staffed 24/7. The elegance of the space conveys a strong hint that what awaits you in the residence is even grander.
As you enter 8F, it’s obvious that a great deal of care went into the design. The unit’s entry foyer is wide and welcoming with a generously-sized coat closet. Flooring is dark-stained hardwood. Although sparsely furnished now with a console table and framed mirror, a new owner could place a comfortable bench alongside the wall and showcase a couple of pieces from an art collection in this entryway.
Adjacent to the entryway is a luxurious powder room with high-gloss cabinets. Entertaining in this unit must be a pleasure with such obvious consideration for guests.
Natural light will lead you to the 23-foot living and dining area. The space is flooded with sunshine, and water views pour in through two walls of floor-to-ceiling windows. The dark hardwood floors ground the space and contrast nicely with the white walls.
Staged with contemporary white furniture and accented with silver, this room is breathtaking. A pair of club chairs is currently positioned next to a harbor-facing window.
“You could stare out at that view all day long,” Green said.
You could also place a table and chairs in this corner area for formal waterfront dining.
A glass door opens to the unit’s private balcony. What a wonderful way to start your day by watching the colorful sunrise and feeling the gentle sea breezes while eating a nourishing breakfast.
An open concept style design allows the cook to enjoy the views and take part in the conversations going on in the living room. The galley kitchen is well-equipped with the finest appliances that includes a cast iron continuous grate gas Wolf cooktop, two Wolf wall ovens, a tall Sub-Zero refrigerator, an under-counter wine chiller and a Miele dishwasher that opens automatically when you tap on the door.
The backsplash tile is textured with a mirrored finish to reflect the light. The white quartz countertops integrate seamlessly while the white lacquered cabinets conceal ample storage space for food and cookware. An extra-long peninsula holds the deep stainless sink and has room for five guests to enjoy drinks or casual meals.
At the end of the evening, you can head to the striking master suite. The staging shows that the master bedroom can easily accommodate a king-size bed. One windowed-wall looks out onto the water. The window treatment operates by remote control, making it easy to open the shade to reveal the morning light. The room has its own thermostat so you can conveniently adjust it to your level of comfort. The large walk-in closet is built out with organizers to make wardrobe storage easy.
The en-suite bathroom has dual sinks and a wide counter tops the shining white vanity. Its spacious shower is irresistible with marble tiles and two showerheads: an overhead mount and a hand-held body spray.
The second bedroom suite rests on the other end of the home. This suite will make any guest or family member very comfortable.
This private suite is, in every way fabulous, suffused with natural light during the day and accented with the twinkling lights of the city at night. Another remotely-operated window shade darkens the room for sleep. The bedroom has two closets - one a deep walk-in.
The en-suite bathroom features gorgeous shining marble tile and glossy cabinetry. The bathtub/shower combination is ideal for the person who appreciates a long soak with a quick rinse-off.
Next to this suite is a laundry closet, where a full-sized stacked Maytag washer and dryer reside. The dryer vents to the outside so you’ll never know that it’s running.
There are also fun spaces within the building for residents to enjoy. Located on the second floor, you’ll find an expansive and immaculate state-of-the art fitness center, outfitted with every workout machine anyone could want to use. One could hardly resist hopping on the Peloton.
There is also a private waterfront lounge that you can enjoy. Several conversation areas, two TVs and copies of the Boston Globe, New York Times, and Wall Street Journal make this space a wonderful place to relax every day. An espresso machine whips up specialty drinks just as well as a barista. A mesmerizing view of sailboats bobs on the water outside.
Whether you’re relaxing inside your luxurious home, enjoying the building amenities or experiencing life in the neighborhood, the Seaport is an outstanding place to live.
“It’s become like a city within the city,” Green said. “It’s the new Newbury Street with all the shopping and restaurants.”
And if you purchase Residence 8F, you and your guests won’t have to go far to get a delicious meal – Davio’s Restaurant is moving in right downstairs.
