minated nook. This area, once a coat closet, has been transformed into a perfect place to showcase fine collectibles, adding space and style to the foyer. This nook can easily be reverted to the coat closet, if desired, although there are other accommodations nearby.

 

The detail and elegance of the unit extends to the enormous master suite located on one side of the long hallway. The extra-large bedroom has a huge walk-in custom closet and a sliding glass door to a perfectly-sized private covered balcony for enjoying the outside ambiance.

 

Lovely octagon marble flooring in the lavish en suite bathroom flows into the huge glass-door steam shower with oversize wall subway tiles. A long mirror, with built-in electrical outlets, sits on the wall above the large dual sink vanity.

 

Almost as large and with welcoming oversized windows are the second and third bedrooms across the hall. Each room has a large closet with solid core, sliding wooded doors. The third bedroom, currently used as a den/media center, has a custom floor-to-ceiling wall of built-ins with open shelving and closed cabinets. The closet is used for guests’ coats and storage.

 

A spacious full bathroom, accessible via a larger nook off the hall, has an oversize soaking tub/shower combo. On the opposite side of the nook is a large laundry closet with full-size side-by-side appliances.

 

At the end of the sprawling hallway at the back of the unit is a colossal open area that hosts the kitchen- living-dining room.

 

This incredible space is perfect for entertaining. Eight large windows with customized window treatments and a floor to ceiling glass door allow the natural light to flow throughout this space, while recessed lights add a touch of radiance as evening turns to night.

 

With the flexibility of space, thoughtful placement of couches, tables and chairs provide cozy areas for mixing and mingling. There is plenty of space for a traditional large dining table and chairs, and/or a smaller table and chairs can be tucked nicely in an alcove adjacent to the doors leading to the covered deck.

 

The deck is wired for natural gas, water and electricity, so year-round grilling is also an option for any type of gathering.

 

Again, the attention to detail found throughout the home is evident in the pristine kitchen. A classy coffered ceiling not only delineates the living-dining area from the kitchen space, but draws the eye upward as one looks out.

 

This space features lots of white European cabinetry. The two custom stainless steel pendants over the grand center island complement the stainless steel appliances while the white/gray marble top with gray wood siding on the island enhance the glazed dove gray subway tile backsplash.

 

The doors to the large floor-to-ceiling walk-in pantry open to a user-friendly arrangement of shelves to hold such things as groceries and small appliances to dishware and more.

 

The chef will enjoy using the Wolf six-burner stove with a center griddle and a pot-filler above as well as two ovens, one of which is a convection oven for expedient meals. The enormous Sub-Zero refrigerator will keep all the perishables fresh until ready to use.

 

An amazing 10-foot center island is a definite focal point of the kitchen abutting the living- dining area. With a deep two-inch quartz slab overhang, there is room for four or five people to chat during prep and clean up time or to catch a quick snack.

 

The other side of this island holds a built in microwave and a dishwasher that is discreet enough that conversations will not be interrupted when running.

 

A fully equipped wet bar, with a beverage refrigerator, counter space and separate sink, is handy for preparing pre-and post- dinner refreshment.

 

On those wonderful days and evenings throughout the year when the temperatures rise, a private space, large enough for many family and friends with spectacular unobstructed views of the surrounding skyline, is available on the roof deck. There are two common grills available as well as a common sitting area. Although this is a shared roof top, not all the units have access to it. This home, however, has it all.

 

Elevator access goes from the two garage parking spaces to each floor and to the roof deck; the use of stairs is optional.

 

Even the location of the home is perfectly placed; close enough to the city, yet far enough away to be out of the hustle and bustle. Fun and excitement at the M Street Beach and Castle Island along with enticing restaurants and flourishing retail are close by as well as the Seaport District and more.
