definitely makes a fashion statement.

 

The L-shaped foyer is large and welcoming and features a double-door closet. As one turns the corner, eyes are immediately drawn to the oversized windows at the far end of the unit, and for good reason. An almost seamless wall of floor-to-ceiling glass starts in the kitchen, wraps around the corner of the dining- living room and extends into the bedrooms, bathing the home in an abundance of natural light and revealing an unforgettable panorama of the city skyline plus the Boston Harbor and the islands.

 

On one side of this corridor is a powder room and an alcove with two doors - one to a laundry closet that holds a full-size stackable washer and dryer, the other to the master suite. On the opposite side is a long, blank wall waiting to be adorned with photographs, pictures and other forms of artistic expression. The end of the foyer opens to an expansive kitchen-dining-living room.

 

The custom chef’s kitchen is well-equipped with a Sub-Zero paneled refrigerator and beverage bar. The Wolf stainless steel oven has two unique features: convection and dehydrating options. Another exceptional element is the exhaust fan above the four-burner gas cooktop that is vented to the outside, keeping the home clean and fresh regardless of the foods prepared. Multiple cabinets are graced with sparkling granite countertops and glass subway tile backsplash. An expansive center entertainment island with a sink and disposal has seating for three.

 

The sprawling dining-living room can accommodate a large dining table for formal gatherings while a cozy arrangement of seating areas welcome lively conversations or restful interludes.

 

At the far side of the living room is an alcove that leads to the guest suite. Parallel to the expansive windows is a long line of built-in cabinets that hold two surprises. One space has a dropdown door that opens to a beverage bar; an upper compartment maintains the glassware. The second space accommodates a work station with room for a computer and keyboard.

 

A door opens to the boudoir and bathroom with a marble vanity and combination tub-shower.

 

On the opposite side of the home is the spacious master suite accessible via the foyer. The suite opens to a hall with a custom walk-in wardrobe adjacent to the double wide closet.

 

A spacious spa-like bathroom is wrapped in small mosaic glass tiles. Oversized subway tiles envelope the long soaking tub and walk-in shower with glass doors. A vanity has two sinks and a wall rack holds heated towels.

 

The spacious master bedroom boasts a wall of built-in drawers flanked by two tailored closets that render bureaus optional.

 

The attention to detail appreciated throughout the home is also mirrored within. The furniture quality finishes in the built-ins include dovetail joints and solid wood drawers with easy glide features. The handles on the closets complement the wood on the drawer fronts. Floating nightstands give the room a sleek, uncluttered look.

 

Smart Home technology provides comfort, security, energy efficiency and convenience. Pre-set programs control the heating, air conditioning and lighting preferences. With a push of a button you can enjoy your favorite music with surround sound speakers throughout the home and control the automatic solar shades for light or privacy, as desired. You can also monitor your home via an elaborate camera system.

 

A house phone connects you to a caring staff comprised of a 24-hour concierge and doorman, room service until 2 a.m. plus cleaning and valet services.

 

While the home is a quiet oasis above the bustling city below, pure pleasurable living continues with more than 12,000 square feet of retail and restaurant space at the lobby level. Start your morning off with a complementary cup of hot coffee or a refreshing glass of flavored water. Relax or socialize, play retro board or online games, or sip mixed libations in the trendy lounge. Enjoy gourmet decadence in the hip restaurant/art gallery. Stretch and strengthen at the fully-equipped fitness center (membership included). Rejuvenate and revitalize at Bliss Spa where wellness is well done.

 

The W’s motto is “Whatever/ Whenever,” helping to make your dreams come true, whether at home or abroad. The concierge can get tickets to the theater, movies, comedy shows, concerts and museums and make reservations at world class restaurants and hotels. Other preferential concierge services include package deliveries, dry cleaning and car services.

 

There is an eclectic mix of people ranging in age and varying interests who live at W Boston Residences – including internationals, suburbanite transplants, families, professionals and retired people – many who are drawn because of the full service lifestyle that’s in a great spot.

 

The building is fabulously located in the midst of everything Boston. Enjoy cuisine at award-winning restaurants, shop till you drop in designer boutiques, dance the night away at trendy clubs and laugh till you cry at the comedy shows. Sail away on the Charles River, enjoy a concert on the Esplanade, and take a Swan Boat ride at the Public Garden. Savor the amazing architecture in the Boston Public Library and pick up some products at the European- style farmers’ market in Copley Square. Meet the artists in their SoWa South End studios and have fun at the Chinatown festivals. Play bocce and ping-pong on the Lawn on D in the Seaport District. Watch the sun rising over the Boston Harbor and the majestic array of colors splashed across the glass towers as the sun sinks below the horizon.
