drawers, pull out shelving in a large pantry, an abundance of granite countertops and select stainless steel Bosch appliances.

 

Two cylinder-shaped pendants dangle over the center island with bar seating. An adjacent nook can accommodate casual seating, albeit a small couch for socializing or a table and chairs for enjoying an informal meal. With multiple windows and wave shutters, even the kitchen has plentiful natural light mirroring the rest of the home.

 

An expansive dining room has a chic circular chandelier and can accommodate a formal dining suite.

 

The light-filled living room features two walls of floor-to-ceiling windows and an opening leading to a private deck with magnificent views of the marina all the way to the South Boston waterfront.

 

A neighboring wall welcomes a wood-burning fireplace with a pretty marble surround and wood mantle. Recessed lighting adds to the nighttime ambiance.

 

The upper level hosts the bedrooms. The master suite has plenty to boast about. There’s a doublewide mirrored closet in the large bedroom and a walk-in closet in the dressing room area. A beautifully renovated en suite bathroom includes heated floors, a quartz counter on the vanity and a shower-tub combination with sliding glass doors.

 

A wall of floor-to-ceiling windows in the bedroom offers what many might consider to be the best views in the home. Many can be admired and appreciated before rising and shining in the morning.

 

While the panorama of the harbor may be mesmerizing, the sunsets are simply stunning as the colorful rays of light leap across the Hancock Tower and other buildings and spread out over the water.

 

A hallway holding a third full bathroom with a frosted glass counter and sink, storage under a small window bench at the end of the corridor, and a couple of closets – one linen and another storage – separate the master suite from the third bedroom.

 

This third bedroom has two oversize windows as well as two double wide closets.

 

The first floor not only has a room with a view, but one with a flexible floor plan. This gorgeous room, which features a wood burning fireplace with a black surround and wall-to-wall oversize picture windows opening to a large deck, can be used as a fourth bedroom, an office or a den. The dramatic views of the harbor and city can easily be enjoyed from both inside and outside all year long.

 

This floor also holds a well-appointed full bathroom and a full size washer and dryer in the laundry/ utility room.

 

This unit reflects many more meticulous and recent updates. The newly-stained hardwood floors shine throughout the living areas while new wall-to-wall carpeting blankets the bedrooms and stairs.

 

The contemporary staircase feature steel wire rails to engender an open, light and airy feeling and awesome vistas. All the walls are alive with a fresh coat of paint.

 

Furthermore, this home has exclusive perks that other units in the association may not have: parking and extra loft storage in the garage located underneath the town-homes as well as a second deeded parking space under the carport.

 

Constellation Wharf, completed in 1987, remains one of the most visible and prominent residential developments along Boston’s waterfront, yet the beautiful homes within provide private, personal and peaceful living. This harbor-side community boasts round-the-clock front gate security.

 

The Constellation Wharf Association is made up of a good mix of people, including families, empty nesters and single professionals living in the 64 large town-homes with gray clapboard facades reminiscent of many traditional New England coastal hamlets.

 

Multiple options for a mooring or dock space for private boats are available at two nearby active marinas – making this a true boating community.

 

Ideally situated on Pier 7, there are a myriad of other things to do nearby, many within walking distance, others accessible via bus service as well as private and public water taxis and ferry. Highway access is also nearby.

 

The Navy Yard features the 30- acre Boston National Historic Park, the USS Constitution and Museum and the Navy Yard Bistro.

 

According to Roth, the Number 93 bus, available at the end of the road, stops at the Pier 6 restaurant, which has a free shuttle to its fellow restaurant, The Reel House, set on an old fashioned wooden boat.

 

Mass General Hospital offers to its abutting neighbors a free shuttle at nearby First Street that goes to North Station and the hospital.
