50 Liberty offer luxury living at its best in Seaport

Morning light is part of the free-for-all view that happens through massive floor-to-ceiling windows in the huge open-concept living area.

Aside from its strictly urban address in the heart of the Seaport District, Unit 10F at 50 Liberty is a luxurious condominium that has an island-abode ambiance with spectacular waterfront views from almost every room.

The 180-plus-degree unobstructed vista includes Boston Harbor and the islands, Logan Airport and the dynamically changing skyline of the Financial District.

That outside scenery is one of many significant hallmarks of this two-bedroom residence, sited at a corner on the backside of 50 Liberty with two full bathrooms, one half bathroom and 1,911 square feet of living space. It is listed by David Mackie of Coldwell Banker Realty for $4,750,000.

Morning light, for example, is part of the free-for-all view that happens through five massive floor-to-ceiling windows on one wall in the huge open-concept living area. With a southern exposure via five windows on the adjoining wall, natural light floods the space all year long. The bonus is that residents and guests can enjoy these same views outside on the private terrace.

Regardless of where you are in the “inside” living area, views are incorporated into the aesthetic. The versatile space accommodates various furniture configurations, including a grand living room and dining area that is suitable for intimate tête-à-têtes or celebrations for eight or more people.

An unusually long peninsula that doubles as a breakfast/lunch bar seats six people or more comfortably. An unusually long peninsula that doubles as a breakfast/lunch bar seats six people or more comfortably.

Entertaining is also a seamless experience as the living space is fully open to a stunning kitchen. More than just a simple functional space or a pretty one for that matter, the house-size kitchen has an outstanding array of features and amenities that make this cookery totally chef worthy.

A suite of Wolf appliances that includes a five-burner gas top Wolf range (with a Zephyr hood) double ovens and microwave oven are complemented by a Sub-Zero refrigerator with freezer drawers and a Miele dishwasher - both with integrated panels.

Oversized metallic tiles used in the backsplash are chic accents to high-gloss cabinetry - a goodly amount of it that envelops the kitchen includes a pullout pantry.

A timeless ambiance is also an important feature of this residence. Dark-stained, wide wood plank flooring that runs throughout juxtaposed against 11-foot-high ceilings (several with a tray-like trim) create an infinity-like background suitable for various decor designs that will adjust readily to changing tastes and eras.

This space can be used as a bedroom, office or combination thereof. It also makes for a great place to relax and watch TV.

Yet, as glittering as the “general” features of this home are - and they are that - the specifics are equally memorable.

The entry foyer is one example. Here, the tray ceiling makes the already generously-sized space feel huge. The double closet, which is one of several storage options throughout the unit (a separate storage space is included, too) and the powder room address all things practical.

Furthermore, the half bathroom is both grand sized and beautiful with an undermount sink and a Kohler commode.

A large double closet and laundry facilities with a Maytag stackable washer and dryer are nearby.

A secondary suite, whether used as a bedroom, office or combination thereof, is exceptionally impressive. Size is one reason.

The main chamber, which handles either a queen or king-size bed comfortably, can be used several ways. Guest quarters and/or a second bedroom are one option and a home office is another, but the space can be used as both simultaneously. A cozy nook (complete with a door for added privacy) is just the right size for a desk with overhead shelving.

An oasis of peace and serenity, the primary sleeping chamber has every amenity - including an enormous amount of closet space: a double affair and a walk-in are on the way to the en suite bathroom.

Or use the “nook” as a walk-in single closet. Not to worry, this room also has a double closet.

No matter how it is used, views are part of the package. These include amazing reflections on the glass-front Goodwin building across the street.

Oversized subway tile is a striking feature in the step-in shower in the en suite bathroom. The almost floating vanity adds to the big, open feel of this spacious washroom.

Direct views of the Institute of Contemporary Art and Fan Pier are certainly a highlight in the primary suite.

A huge step-in shower with a frameless glass door, built-in bench and a surround of 24-inch by 12-inch tiles maintain the linear design in this chic loo. Double sinks in the long vanity allow for ample elbow room.

Luxuries large and small are everywhere throughout the building, too. Concierge service is available 24/7 and a gigantic residents’ lounge with coffee service is adjacent to the fitness center.

For convenient fine dining, use the private resident entrance to Davios in the lobby.

Of course, numerous other dining options are well within a two-three block radius.

The bonus is that residents and guests can enjoy great views outside on the private terrace.
