The new owners of a spectacular 1,932 square-foot, front-facing condominium are enjoying cosmopolitan luxury living at its best with hotel-style services at their doorstep, embraced by a Parisian-style streetscape around them.

Unit 905 at The Heritage on the Garden at 300 Boylston St. was listed by the Kyle Kaagan Team of Gibson Sotheby's International Realty and purchased in mid-November with Tracy Campion of Campion & Company Fine Homes Real Estate for $3,900,000.

The historical charm of its details and finishes and the contemporary efficiency of its floor plan and amenities are only a few of the sought-after facets that this dazzling home offers.

The wide and welcoming foyer opens to an expansive living-dining area boasting floor-to-ceiling windows offering breathtaking views of the Public Garden, Boston Common and Back Bay skyline.

This is a fine spot to relax, enjoy something to eat and take in the great views.

A wood burning fireplace, garnished with a Statuario marble surround and bordered by an exquisitely carved wood mantle, sits below a partial tray ceiling. Glass and closed cabinetry that line another wall provide lots of storage and places to display décor.

Trimming this flexible, over-sized entertaining space is traditional crown moldings at the wall and ceiling levels.

The Heritage on the Garden is primely located just across the street from the Public Garden where the new residents can meander along the winding paths of exotic trees, aromatic flowers and historic statuary, including Thomas Ball’s equestrian George Washington statue and Nancy Schön’s Make Way for Ducklings procession. A summer highlight of the small lagoon are the legendary swan boats.

One of the paths lead to the historic Boston Common where the new residents can enjoy a variety of seasonal activities and another one heads to the Commonwealth Mall for more natural splendor.

An alternative rewarding walk will bring the new residents to the delightful Charles River Esplanade where a plethora of events and programs are traditionally held, including the renown Fourth of July Pops concerts and colorful pyrotechnic displays; GroundBeat, the free Riverfront Music Series; fitness classes; and Children in the Park programs.
