the dining area cast additional light across the hallway and into the living room as well.

 

The glazed tile backsplash, sleek quartz countertops and premiere stainless steel appliances pop against the white cabinets, affording a contemporary look to the UShaped chef’s kitchen. Two glass pendants hang above the breakfast bar with seating for three. A five-panel door leads to a pantry.

 

The kitchen opens to a lovely dining area with five matching glass pendants. This light and airy space is large enough to host dinner parties for at least eight guests.

 

The living room showcases a custom tile wall that looks and feels like elegant linen wallpaper. This tailored tile hosts a large flat screen television above the rectangular gas fireplace. The triple cornice molding adds a touch of class as well.

 

A half bath with a hexagon tile floor design completes this story.

 

All three bedrooms are found on the third floor, ideal for parents who want to keep an eye and an ear on younger children. All the bedrooms feature Closets by Design as well as built-in speakers.

 

Two of these bedrooms share a full bathroom accessible from the hallway. This bathroom has pleasing oversize aqua-colored glass subway tiles with a combination tub-shower.

 

The master bedroom echoes the details from the lower level with beautiful hardwood floors, tall custom windows and triple cornice ceiling moldings.

 

The en suite bathroom showcases a basket weave tile floor design and complementing oversize wall tiles, a glass shower and a double marble vanity.

 

A nearby full size laundry closet eliminates the need to carry baskets up and down stairs, making cleaning day quicker and easier.

 

Stairs (conveniently placed adjacent to the hallway facilities) lead to an enormous roof deck with a 360- degree view of the amazing city. Adding an arrangement of furniture and a BBQ along with some fresh greenery and colorful flowers provides a panache place for entertaining or just unwinding after a busy day.

 

The first floor foyer (accessed via the front door or attached garage) opens to a large area, accommodating a family or multi-media room or a home office. Since there is a nearby full bathroom with a glass shower, this space could also be used as a private guest suite.

 

A sliding glass door leads to a sunny backyard patio (a rare find in the city), equipped with electricity and water. This brick-paved, fenced-in area has greenery and room for one or two small raised-bed gardens. A private walkway extends to the front street.

 

The 12-foot by nearly 21-foot garage has frosted door panels, creating a light and airy space. The separate thermostat provides warmth during cooler seasons. A convenient utility sink handles outdoor needs and messy clean ups without compromising interior spaces. This large space is perfect for storing bicycles and strollers along with seasonal paraphernalia in addition to a car.

 

This delightful home is located on the west side of South Boston

 

“It’s kind of like an insulated, serene place in the middle of the city,” Celeste said.

 

The home is convenient to the pulse of the city, intermingling with many historical, cultural and entertainment spots, yet, even when enjoying the outdoor space, is tranquil and private.

 

There is an abundance of food establishments such as Coppersmith, Backyard Betty’s plus Broadway’s Pastry & Coffee Shop. Edible Arrangements, Foodies Market - South Boston and Whole Foods Market add to the culinary experience.

 

This pet-friendly community hosts Flaherty Park, Ortin Field and Sweeney Playground along with Rolling Bridge and Binford Street parks. There are several gyms as well as roller skating, ice skating and bowling in the area. Rock Spot Climbing is also nearby.

 

South Boston is noted as having some of the best beaches around: M Street Beach, Pleasure Bay and Carson Beach, to name a few. Some spots offer kayaking and paddle=boarding in addition to swimming and sunbathing.

 

While Lawn on D offers summer concerts and games, Fan Pier and Castle Island provide ample waterfront adventures, exciting entertainment and fabulous scenic views. The Boston Children’s Museum and Institute of Contemporary Art are open year-round.

 

This deluxe home is ideal for just about anyone – from families to empty-nesters and people who want to live and work in the city. There’s plenty of room for children and for visiting grandchildren and their parents as well as other guests.
